Monkey Sees, Monkey Does

The municipality of Prague wants to rename the square on which stands the Russian embassy in honour of Boris Nemtsov…

The Russians will laugh at this stupidity, and Prague will spend money on absolute nonsense. That is all that will happen. Ordinary Czechs don’t give a fuck about Boris Nemtsov, and the latter has never done anything for the Czech Republic.

But little did I realize, how unoriginal the people in Prague that came up with this cringy initiative are. There already is a Boris Nemtsov Plaza in Washington D.C., named so in 2017. In 2018, Vilnius and Kiev were added to the list of proud cities featuring Russian Embassy addresses on Boris Nemtsov Square.

NATO Cargo Cult Discovered in Kiev

A friend of mine visited Kiev and discovered an example of a cargo cult. The latter is when aboriginals in peripheral countries build totems and displays to attract the help of a more advanced civilisation. I am living in a NATO country, and I have not seen any such displays…

Note the underground walkway. The tiles look like they haven’t seen a repair since comrade Brezhnev, and I bet it stinks like piss in there. That does not prevent the local government from commemorating the 70 years of NATO.

Anton Shekhovtsov Says the Danger Comes not From Russia but From China

A number of talking heads have expressed this opinion recently. Shekhovtsov mentions Emmanuel Macron, and Edward Lucas in this Swedish article…

Below is an electronic translation of the subheading:

As the increasingly authoritarian Moscow blindly strikes and strikes for a place in the emerging multipolar world, the country seems to be on the verge of being transformed into a pacifier for Beijing .Only a madman thinks it would be good for Europe with a huge, nuclear-armed proxy superpower acting in the interests of China and the Chinese industry. It is therefore important that European leaders, instead of pushing Russia into the arms of Beijing, consider how they can integrate Russia into a major Europe. But the current corrupt and aggressive leadership in Moscow is pointless to speak with. Therefore, the hope lies in cultivating a European identity – especially with the Russian youth. Europe should regard today’s Russia as a misguided lamb that will eventually return to its European flock, under the conditions of the Western countries, says Shekhovtsov.

In translation, Europe (whatever is meant by that, probably the EU) should continue treating Russia like shit, while we continue to poison the minds of the Russian youth.

I don’t think the Westerners don’t fully realise what they are up against, and Eastern sycophants like Shekhovtsov are too cowardly to treat this matter rationally.
