Putin Be Cray-Cray: We wuz snookered!

Dear Readers:

Returning to the land of High Politics, today I have this piece from RIA.  It is basically a sound-bite taken from one interview with Vladimir Putin.  The context is a series of interviews done by Russian journalist Vladimir Soloviev.  Soloviev produced a documentary film called “World Order – 2018”, which features the interviews with the current and future (assuming he wins his re-election, which he probably will) Russian President.  The film is shown in the youtube link below.  Watch it now, youtube has a way of taking things down on the orders of the “Deep State”.  Okay, I haven’t watched it myself, not even a few minutes of it, I should, but I don’t have time, I only just read this one sound-bite, so my take on it is probably unfair, but I have to confess, my opinion of Putin just went down about 100 points.

UNLESS!  Putin is being sarcastic.  That’s always a possibility, I reckon.  People say he has a subtle sense of humor.

Anyhow, in the sound-bite in question, Putin claims that (1) he was deceived by the Americans in the matter of Ukraine; and (2) that this is the very first time the Americans ever deceived him.  Up until then the Americans had been as honest as Sister Simplice and as irreproachable as Caesar’s wife [look it up, I am not going to provide a link]:

“Our American partners turned to us [for help], they asked us to do everything we could to ensure that [Ukrainian President] Yanukovych would not employ the army [against the protesters], so that the opposition could [abandon the occupation of] the squares and administrative buildings and return to the negotiations table to resolve and normalize this situation.” 

Russia agreed to help.  In return for their help, they received a slap in the face and a kick in the nuts:  The Maidan coup.

“Why, O Wind, didst thou deceive me?”

“They could have called us at least, they could have done something, said something.  There is, you know, such a phenomenon as ‘excess of execution’ [in other words, things getting out of hand] — they could have said, We didn’t want or expect this, but things just developed that way, but we will do everything we can to return events to their normal route.  But no…  Quite the contrary.  Not a word out of them, and full support for those who committed this coup.”

So far so good.  Putin was deceived by the Masters of Deceit.  But then he takes his Plaint one step further:  “This was the very first time, if you please, that [our American partners] deceived us so rudely.  That they said, We will do such-and-such, and then did the exact opposite.  Such a thing had never happened before.”

To which, one of the commenters to the Ria piece, a certain “Evgeny Ambush” notes:  “Oh yeah, what about their promise not to expand to the East after the wall of the Berlin Wall?”

Touché, Ambush!

What To Do About Sexual Harassment On International Women’s Day?

Dear Readers:

Tomorrow (March 8) is International Women’s Day, which, as everyone knows, began as a Leftie phenomenon.  Back in the day, every Labor or Socialist Party had a Women’s Auxiliary, which militated for the rights and special needs of working women within the platform of the overall party line.  Women’s Day itself was initiated by progressive American women in New York in 1909.  Many of these women had political roots dating all the way back to the Abolitionist movement.  A primary demand was the right to vote in elections, in addition to many other demands, both political and social in nature.  (Later, after American women gained the vote, they sort of perverted it into Prohibition, but that’s a whole ‘nother story.)

After the Revolution (1917) Russian women gained the vote earlier than most, and March 8 became a national holiday in the Soviet Union.  In 1975 it was adopted by the United Nations.  Nowadays, in countries like the United States this holiday is barely noted, and even when yawningly noted, is treated more like a variant of Mother’s Day, with gallantries such as flowers and cakes, masking the original communist nature of the event.  See, kids, back in the day, sexual equality was the domain of the Left.

Be that as it may, I am starting the celebrations one day early, in order to bring you this piece about a powerful Russian woman named Maria Zakharova.  Zakkie, as her friends do not call her, is addressing the issue of sexual harassment.  By the way I couldn’t help but notice that the Russian press has picked up still another Anglicism:  харассмент (“harassment”) which will soon, no doubt, replace the native Russian variant домогательства.

Zakkie is the official representative of the Russian State Department and is known for her witty and sometimes blunt verbal ripostes against Russia’s enemies.  As an attractive woman in her early 40’s who started her career as a simple journalist, Maria would have seen and experienced various types of bad behavior in the workplace.  Probably not nowadays, that she is in a position of power.  Harassment is mostly the cross that the powerless are forced to bear.  And sexual harassment in the workplace, after all, takes many forms, not just the crude type of “Have sex with me if you want the job.” Well, maybe that’s the norm in Hollywood, but in my own humble experience as a white-collar worker, “harassment” in the office place is usually more subtle than that.  It involves things like office politics, bullying, put-downs, making people feel uncomfortable, jockeying for position with the boss, trying to demoralize your opponents, forming lunch cliques or “boys clubs” within the team, that sort of thing.  Victims can be males as well as females, but it’s usually the girls who experience the rich fullness of the “hostile workplace”, as Americans term this ghastly situation.

Zakharova pondered on this issue, came up with some ideas, and posted her recommendations on her Facebook.  She advises against the B.S. type “mass campaigns” that are so popular in the West.  Things like the #MeToo movement.  As if hashtags on Twitter can resolve issues of office politics and force people to treat each other with respect.  Nah, ain’t gonna happen.

If a girl comes up against “classic” sexual harassment, then she should turn to the police, Zakharova advises:  “As I understand it, my position is a fresh one, and not widespread.  If there is a breach of the law — go to the police, immediately.  Public campaigns have never solved any problems.”  I believe the scenario here is the one involving actual rape or attempted rape, or physical battery.  Something that would attract the interest of the police.  As one of the commenters to the VZGLIAD piece (Palets Russkovo Khakera) notes, the Russian legal code has an article against rape, but not against harassment per se.  Hence, the police are not going to get involved unless there is actually a physical crime.  Palets is correct, of course.

On encountering something perhaps not quite meeting the benchmark of a crime or requiring police action, something like being verbally disrespected, Zakharova recommends expressing one’s opinion immediately, right in the face of the offender, and right in public.  This is great advice, IMHO, but not always practical.  For example, if the person doing the verbal disrespecting is your actual boss, or one of the boss’s henchpersons.  Office Politics, again.

The VZGLIAD piece notes that a commenter named Liliya Akhmetova vigorously debated Zakharova’s opinion on her Facebook and supported the #MeToo type of approach:

Harvey Weinstein

“But this campaign, as you called it, in the U.S. and other countries, did in fact solve the problem with Weinstein.  He was fired in disgrace.  And others paid the price too:  Spacey & Co. lost their contracts.  Editors, publishers, Media Moguls were fired, along with officials and others.  It is only in backward, Domostroy, anti-feminist Russia, that harassment is not only tolerated, but encouraged!  Not only that, but the victim is blamed, and even women throw their own under the bus!  There is a certain etiquette, there is even the law, but where in the legal code is there an article against harassment?  There is not one.  So what use is your advice?  Society itself must be the judge, and the perpetrator, like is done in proper countries, should be relieved of his job.”

Aside from Liliya’s naive belief that “proper” countries such as the U.S. deal with sexual harassment and sexual inequality any better than Russia does, her points, IMHO, are valid.  What would a policeman be able to say, or do, if a woman marched into the precinct and declared:  “My boss called me a bitch and told me to shut up, right in the middle of a public meeting with top management!”

Nothing.  The cop would not be able to do one damned thing.  Which is why the real solution, as those New York women already knew, back in 1909, is for the working man and woman to have “proper” trade unions and political parties, which protect their rights and their human dignity on the job.  So there!

Ukrainian POW On the Criminal Shelling Of Donetsk – Part III

Dear Readers:

Today finishing the translation of this interview from PolitNavigator,  This is basically the videotaped interrogation of a certain Ukrainian soldier named Vasily Zhemelinsky who was taken captive by the Donetsk Separatist militias.

Where we left off, the interrogator, denoted by the initials P.N. (for PolitNavigator, although this is almost certainly a military interrogator, not a reporter), was eliciting from Vasily that the Ukrainian front-line soldiers are demoralized and not very well taken care of by their commanders.  All of which is factual, for anybody who has been following this conflict.  Vasily did remark that the Ukrainian “patriots” are still gung-ho and willing to fight to the end.  He himself does not necessarily come off as one of the “patriots” himself, but you never know.  He is a captive, so he might well be dissembling.

It appears from the context, and from the questions posed, that Vasily was coached beforehand, as to the talking points he was expected to cover in the video.  Including the night shellings, the demoralization, and the hopes of the rank-and-file soldiers that the war would come to an end.  I mentioned already that the interrogator addresses Vasily in the familiar ты (“thou”) rather then the formal вы (“you”), as one would expect a military commander to address a subordinate, let alone a prisoner.  The interrogator’s voice is disguised, he appears to be sitting in front of the prisoner, as Vasily’s eyes dart upward every time a question is addressed to him.  One can hear some mumblings and even chuckles in the background, indicating that other people are present for this taping.

We continue…

P.N.  What is the attitude of the commanders to the rank and file?

V.Zh.  Fairly normal, in principle.  The commanders respect some of the servicemen, but not all of them, of course.  He who is in tight with the commander, has “God in his belly”, as they say.  But the others… well, you know… [yalensis:  In the video, this is the first time Vasily shows a certain flash of humor, and one can even hear some chuckling in the background as well.]

P.N.  I have one final question for you.  On the whole, do you and your comrades want the war to come to an end, so that you can all go home; or are you ready to fight to the end, not leaving one stone on another [yalensis:  see Matthew 24:2 for the citation] in the city of Donetsk?  Tell me your opinion.

V.Zh.  I’m just speaking for myself.  I want to to get out as soon as possible.  In fact, I wanted to get out back then when I switched over to being a contractor, exactly one year after enlisting.  I thought my term of duty was over, but I wasn’t able to get out at that time.  They told me I had to finish out my contract, and then I could get out.  That’s what happened to me.  I have no more desire to fight, and in principle I never actually did.  I haven’t actually been in the Donbass that long.  For my comrades I can say that they are all here for the money.  If it wasn’t for the money, then nobody would be here.

[yalensis:  In the vid there is a jump cut here, as Vasily is prepped for his final soliloquy.]

P.N.  And is there anything you would like to say to those who are still serving?  You have been here for some time, you can see what is going on around you, what is actually happening here.

V.Zh.  True, I have seen with my own eyes.  What’s going on here, what’s going on there.  I would like to say simply to the guys, that life is ahead of you, it’s not worth the money, you can earn money in a civilian job, but people are dying here.  I have seen many things.  Donetsk is being shelled, and it’s just an ordinary civilian town, just like all the other towns.  There are children living here as well.  So, some little kid is walking along, a shell comes flying in, and that’s it, a life is torn apart.  It’s not worth it, guys, it’s not worth doing this for the money, and hearing all the stuff that is happening.  This is all just craziness.  I have seen this, and I understand it now.

Ukrainian POW On the Criminal Shelling Of Donetsk – Part II

Dear Readers:

Continuing  this story from PolitNavigator, I am in the middle of translating (based on the written transcript) the videotaped interrogation of a certain Ukrainian soldier named Vasily Zhemelinsky who was captured by the Donetsk Peoples Republic (DPR) Separatists in the town of Peski.  Vasily and a few others had been ordered on a reconnaissance mission which failed badly; all were captured, killed, or wounded.

In the vid the interrogator disguises his/her voice, but I am surmising this is a regular military interrogator and not the reporter, even though the interrogator is designated in the transcript as P.N. (for PolitNavigator).  The ideological purpose of the transcript and the published story is to show how the Ukrainian army are violating the ceasefire and shelling the city of Donetsk each and every day, sometimes just randomly shooting it up for no valid military reason.  Large-caliber weapons are used, especially at night, with the apparent motives of (1) destroying infrastructure and (2) demoralizing/terrorizing the local civilian population.

Where we left off, Vasily had given up the name of the Commander of the Second Company, one of the men who had ordered him to launch rockets and mortars in the general direction of the Donetsk urban center.  The name he gave, most certainly a lower-level war criminal (assuming Vasily is telling the truth) was Konstantin Vasilievich Tsymbal.

P.N.  Can you give his full title and position.

V.Zh.  34th Battalion, Second Motorized Mechanized Infantry, Ensign Konstantin Vasilievich Tsymbal.

P.N.  And … ?

V.Zh.  Well, in general, he is a commander of the Second Company.  But sometimes ordes are issued out the HQ, I don’t know their names, they go by the call signs “Atlas” and “Oper”.

P.N.  Besides them, do you know the names of any other concrete persons who participated in these violations of the ceasefire?

V.Zh.  Like I said, this was the Second Company, where I was assigned to Signals.  I only know about them.  “Gumka” — there is another name, he is part of the Company, he gives orders, and they are carried out by the servicemen, each man in his own position.  Whenever he gives an order, it is carried out to the letter.

P.N.  How do the servicemen react to carrying out such orders?  Factually there is no need for them to shell the city.

V.Zh.  Well, it’s like this… A man is given an order, he has to carry it out.  In principle there is really nothing he can do about it.

P.N.  And this sort of thing goes on every day?

V.Zh.  Well, if we’re talking about the large-caliber weapons, not necessarily every day, but on a regular basis.  Rifles, and large-caliber machine guns, yes, every day, especially in the evenings.

P.N.  In other words, it gets worse at night?

V.Zh.  Yes, that’s correct.  Daytime is so-so.  Only rifle shooting during the day, but when night approaches we go for the bigger guns.

P.N.  Tell me about your conditions of service.  What kind of benefits do you receive, what is the morale like?

V.Zh.  Well, morale has gone down, everybody is sick of this, many [soldiers] want to go home after their rotation [in the so-called “Anti-Terrorist Operation” zone].  There are some who are dedicated patriots, who want to fight to the end, and so on.  Weapons systems (Russian боекомплекты) are brought in and are available in abundant quantities.

P.N.  I get it about the weapons systems.  But what about the uniforms and so on?

V.Zh.  In that regard, it’s mostly at one’s own expense.  Or the volunteers help with the food, the uniforms and the medicines.  Mostly, however, we purchase all this with our own money.

P.N.  In other words, crudely speaking, your commanders don’t bother with your feeding and material needs?

V.Zh.  Well, they sort of do, but not as much as they should.  Mostly it’s at our own expense.  They bring some produce, they might bring you a uniform, but only once a year, and might be the wrong size, so you have to have it altered, and so on.

P.N.  What is the attitude of the commanders to the rank and file?

Ukrainian POW On the Criminal Shelling Of Donetsk – Part I

Dear Readers:

Today I have this piece from PolitNavigator, which I will do as straight translation, after a few introductory remarks.  The interview is with a Ukrainian soldier named Vasily Zhemelinsky.  Zhemelinsky, the goateed young man in the video, was captured by soldiers of the Donetsk Peoples Republic (DPR).  In the video he appears to be somewhat tired and demoralized, but not necessarily terrified.  He responds to the interview with a certain professionalism, as if in a proper interrogation.  His remarks are abbreviated by his initials V.Zh.  The byline on the piece belongs to somebody named Anastasia Samoilova, but she is most likely not the same person as the interviewer/interrogator.

The conflict has generated many POW’s.

The interviewer’s voice is disguised and denoted in the transcript by the initials P.N. (for PolitNavigator).  From this, one deduces that the DPR military either (1) allowed the reporter to conduct the interview and/or (2) allowed the reporter to record an official interrogation conducted by a proper military interrogator.  My money would be on the latter, since the interviewer addresses the POW with the familiar Russian pronoun ты (“thou”); a reporter would likely be more polite and address the interviewee as вы even if s/he despised him.  The main purpose of the interview is to prove that the Ukrainian army have a tendency to randomly shell the populated city of Donetsk, sometimes without rhyme or reason.  And that much is already known by anybody who has been following this conflict.  Perhaps there is also some hope that those responsible for such war crimes, those giving such orders to shell civilian targets, will eventually be brought to justice, once this war is over.

I assume that my readers are astute enough to know that the public and videotaped confessions of a captive should be received with a certain skepticism.  What he says to please his captors, what he says that is factual — and the two categories not necessarily mutually exclusive.  With that stipulation, I proceed to the


V.Zh.  I am a soldier with the armed forces of the Ukraine.  I served in the Donbass in the 57th Separate Mechanized Brigade, then was transferred to the 54th Separate Battalion of that same Brigade, into the Second Motorized Infantry Company.  There I worked in Signals/Communications.  On February 16-17 I was taken prisoner by the DPR in the area of Peski.  Our commander had given us the order to go on a reconnaissance, to learn the position of the enemy.  So our group of 8 men went out there and were attacked.  Two men were killed, another two wounded, the others disappeared.  I was taken prisoner, and that’s where I am now.

P.N.  Do you fellows often go out on reconnaissance in that manner?

V.Zh. Well, I’ve been serving in the Donbass since 28 October of last year.  This was the first time in my service that I was asked to go on such a mission, and it ended in failure.

P.N.  Up until then were such missions successful?

V.Zh.  Well, from what I have heard, yes.  There were occasions when everybody returned.

P.N.  In other words, factually you served on the front line, on the vanguard, would that be correct to say?

V.Zh.  Yes.  In Peski, on the front line.

P.N.  And what happened during the so-called ceasefire?

V.Zh.  There was no ceasefire.  The shooting continued without abate, every day.  Rocket launchers went off constantly, rockets and mortars fired into Donetsk all the time, every day.

P.N.  And who gave the orders [to shell Donetsk]?  The commander of the Company?

V.Zh.  The commanders of the HQ and the Company.

P.N.  Explain to me, exactly how these orders sounded.  Was it simply, “Shoot into Donetsk” or did they give you some kind of coordinates?

V.Zh.  Well, let’s say that there was an order to prepare some mines.  The mortar launchers are given the order with corresponding coordinates; or maybe just simply in the direction of Donetsk.  That’s how it happens.

P.N.  What about the large-caliber weapons, the machine guns, do you apply them just whenever you feel like it?

V.Zh.  That depends on the orders of the Company Commander.  That’s when we apply them.

P.N.  Who is this Company Commander?  What is his name?  Tell me who it is, concretely, who gives these orders.

V.Zh.  The Commander of the Second Company — his name is Konstantin Vasilievich Tsymbal.

Name Russian Super-Weapon After Givi!

Dear Readers:

I saw this piece in the Russian press today.  Everybody knows that Russia is developing a new super-weapon to counter Anti-Missile Defense systems that the Americans are unfolding in Eastern Europe and along Russia’s border.  Humans are tired of this boring old life, Mutual Deterrence is dead, Viva the Arms Race!

General Ripper hopes to achieve First-Strike capability

The American people, under the glorious leadership of General Jack D. Ripper, hope to neutralize Russian missile defenses in order to achieve first-strike capability – Woooo!  Ant-like Russians respond in their typical way by building THE DOOMSDAY MACHINE, something involving ultra-sound.  If you want more details about the new weapon, then I suggest you check out military-type blogs, because I don’t know very much about military hardware.  My story is more about the human side of mass destruction and the annihilation of the human race – putting a human face to a doomsday machine.  In the end there will be catharsis and reunited families.

Reality check: Folks, NATO pretty much has Russia surrounded!

So, yesterday (March 1) Russian President Putin, in his annual address to the Federal Assembly (the 2 houses of Parliament) — in American terms this would be like addressing the Congress and Senate together — announced that Russia is building a “Strategic Rocket Complex with an ultra-sound winged block” — whatever that is! — to counter the American anti-missile complex.  Putin claims that the new weapons cannot be intercepted by American Anti-Air, hence they would survive the Pindostan First Strike (PFS), and be able to retaliate with full-on nukes.  Pretty cool, no?

Russian Ambassador shows off new Doomsday Machine

As you could guess, Westie press is all over this “supersonic Russian threat”, but portraying it as an aggressive move rather than defensive.  But again, that’s not what my story is about.

In the course of announcing the new weapon, Putin remarked that the Russian military still has not thought of a name for the weapon.  It goes without saying that the name should be something cool.  He mentioned there could be an online competition set up for people to suggest names.  This sort of thing is done even in “normal” countries.  For example in England, the most normal country in the world, online voters chose the name Boaty McBoatface for a scientific research ship operated by the British navy.

Would Russians decide on something like “Nukey McNukeFace” for the new rocket system?  Probably not.  In any case, Putin’s advisor Surkov (who himself has a really cool Slavic first name — Vladislav) has suggested something much better.   Surkov has suggested naming the new system Givi, after the Donetsk Peoples Republic Separatist Commander who was assassinated one year ago.  “There is such a hero…” Surkov mused.

How’m I Doin’, Hey, Hey – February Edition

Dear Readers:

So, it is March 1, almost spring.  They say that April is the cruelest month, but my money is on March.  It comes in like a … well, it can’t even figure out what kind of animal it is!

Anyhow, it is time to close the books on February.  My marketing team are frantically doing the backstroke like flies in a bowl of soup, trying to explain to me why “sales” are down.  Starting with the fact that February is the shortest month, if not the cruelest month; and lecturing me that lengthy opera reviews do not attract a mass audience!  I riposte by telling them to shut up and do their jobs.  Find a way to make classical opera more glamorous!

Oh, and by the way, next month I plan to post a 20-part book review of Moby Dick.  It’s basically the term paper I never turned in at school, for my American Lit class.  The report is from the point of view of a Safety Inspector detailing all those objects and procedures of the Pequod which he reckons to be a hazard and require corrective action…  But I have already given up too much the plot of my masterpiece…

Anyhow, as compared to January, in February Page Views went down – from 6,159 to 5,371.  The number of Distinct Visitors also went down, from  3,507 to 2,953.  But I appreciate each and every Visitor, it goes without saying!

Next: My standard disclaimer:

Your Privacy is Important to Me: WordPress calculates who is a distinct person by their I.P. address. It also uses the I.P. address to deduce which country you live in. I myself can’t see I.P. addresses unless you leave a comment. In which case I can see your email address; and from that I COULD look up your I.P. if I were curious, which I am not.

Next: Before posting my usual “Parade of Nations”, this here is my nostalgic trip down memory lane. In which I narcissistically “look-back” through my own posts of the last month, self-assess them, and highlight a few which I think are particularly good, I call this feature:

Highlights of the Month

So, here we go, in chronological order:

  • As mentioned, most of February was taken up with my 5-part review of the opera Tosca at the Met.  Speaking of which, Opera Lovers watch out for my upcoming review of the new Semiramide production, it looks to be a corker!  (The opera, that is, not necessarily my review; but I will attempt to do a good job with it.)
  • Next there was this 2-part series on the Ukrainian economy.  It was pretty good, I think, and got picked up by Johnson’s List.
  • Next, I delved into Olympic Figure Skating, with this piece.  The main issue being the trials and tribulations of Russian athletes, being treated like outcasts at the Olympics, and yet still striving to perform at their best.  The story featured skating prodigy Alina Zagitova.
  • The issue of Gay Marriage always pulls in readers, so that was a good piece of bait for this otherwise serious historical piece, involving some arcane rules of the Russian Orthodox Church.
  • A cute animal story about a hungry fox, a hard-working ice fisherman, and a pun on the word “smelt” —  Would have been an Aesop’s Tale, except that the fisherman was good-natured, and the fox was polite.  No bad guys in this tale.
  • Returning to Figure Skating, with another Zagitova story, this time she being harassed by WADA (World Anti-Doping Association) bureaucrats, whose motive appeared to be depriving this contender of valuable practice ice time.  Jumping ahead a week, Zagitova was to go on to win the Gold Medal, thus proving that she has True Grit.
  • And still more Zagitova, just can’t get enough Zagitova!
  • From the Sublime to the Ugly:  February came in like a nightingale and left like a pig, with this 4-parter about a certain corrupt Ukrainian politician.

But now, putting aside both pleasant and unpleasant things, it is time for that Pomp and Circumstance that everybody has been waiting for: Time to march on with the
