America got caught with it's hand in the cookie jar! The overthrow of the official Ukrainian government in early 2014 - is a clear project of US, which was openly supported by the official US. ISIS are American, Saudi, and Israeli mercenaries! Putin spoiled the "regime change" plans! BRICS is a thorn in the west's back! Erdogan (an American enabled oligarch) got his cheap oil business ruined by Russia's involvement in Syria. Russia's threat to prove that 9/11 was a false flag is very alarming to the Zionists! Putin is in full concert!

Our beloved president Putin has helped our allied nations of Ukraine and Syria by sending our troops there to protect our fellow Russian speakers. As everyone knows ISIS had been killing our Russian-speaking brothers, until our beloved president Putin put a stop to that by helping president Assad re-establish the Syrian People's Republic with the help of our troops. Additionally, our great nation is helping liberate Ukraine from the European fascists. I pray for you brother Sergio from the US that you will repent and ask God to forgive you for serving the US fascists. We will of course try to intervene and help a Russian speaker like you, but as you know the power of fascism is strong and our beloved president cannot yet invade the whole world to protect all the peoples from fascism. Keep speaking Russian, brother Sergio, and being our man in the US. Our beloved president Putin and our green men will protect you from the dictators and their fascists. As you know, our beloved dictator Putin loves establishing his own oligarchs, so perhaps when the fascism falls, you could receive some dacha in Ukraine for your services, dear US Sergio. We all love anti-fascists like you. Keep fighting for the fascism and a great Russian world.

“10 COMMANDMENTS” OF KREMLIN’S DEVILS,
OR OF NEW LENIN'S-ROBESPIER’S DWORFS:
*******************************************************
1.
"Situation in Syria can be solved only by peaceful means...
...or it is a long war"

My Comment:

ACCORDING TO 1954 PACT OFFERED BY RUSSIA
TO BRIT-GERM-VIENNA, DECADES BEFORE SYRIA WAR,
ARCHEOLOGISTS, RUSSIAN, BRITISH AND GERMAN WITH RUSSIAN “MORDA” TWISTED SYRIA'S HISTORY FOR SEEDING RACE WAR.
Some 10 Millenniums ago Syrian land was already part of Iberian-Caucasian Civilizations, 1954 pact conspirators tried prove Syria was Chaldean-Palestinian-Arab.
Russia also turned hospitality to its navy in Syrian port into encroaching Russian Tyranny of race war, inflame Arabs,
Iran and unfortunately also USA, retaliating to Global terror against West by going too far "Arab Spring".
Medvedev also threaten trash World by long war of terror.
****************************************************************
2.
"Russia supports legitimate government in Syria... ...not Bashar Assad, but... ...friendly relation with that country... ...or it will be chaos."

My Comment:

RUSSIA SUPPORTS NOT LEGITIMATE GOVERNMENT,
BUT EXPANDS OPORTUNITY TO TAKE IT ALL, AS THEY DID TO MANY, EVENTUALLY REPOPULATE BY VARAG-PRUSSAK, RUSSIAN PARASITES, ANY COUNTRY.
Russia might still enjoy visiting naval port, but they create national and religious wars destroy nations – like in Afghanistan, N. Caucasus, Georgia, Ukraine…
As an eternal irony, they stole my history reminder about Syria,
but not to unite - to divide and make ridiculous claims - my reminder about Caucasian routs of Syria and shearing Georgian "Bulat steel", before Arab invasions, into "saving
brothers Christians of Russia"!
Medvedev also threaten Global humanitarian crises.
**********************************************************
3. "Future of Crimea is not for discussion... ...Crimea is part of Russian territory, it was "lead-through" referendum there."

My Comment:

"LEAD-THROUGH" REFERENDUM?
DWARFS-IDIOTS USED MEANING FROM FORMER USSR,
WHERE RUSSIAN INVADERS-OCCUPIERS CALLED THAT
UNDER GUN-POINT QUISLINGS AND GRU-KGB SHOW.

RUSSIA GRAB TERRITORIES, COUNTRIES, BREED-OUT
AS "POMESH'IKS" PARASITES.
Medvedev also claim Russia's right annex territories, using mockery of GRU-KGB killers rudely dressed as locals.
*************************************************************
4. Russia wants "move further-through" relation with USA and EU... ...we tied by European identity, history, values."

My comment:

Russia "MOVE FURTHER-THROUGH" USA, installing to be President Russian KGB-Gan'ka-Twin-Trump, using same Quislings-GRU-KGB show, milions Russian and USSR born Americans and lied too idiots, screaming "Trump"!
The very people stole my inventions, like "PAL", and murder my mother 2012.
Russia will "move further-through" Europe, bringing death and stench, like they did from Afghanistan through Ukraine, referring to 11 Centuries genocide by Varag and 3 Centuries of
making Prussia "unite" Germany and divide Europe by bestial oppression and multiple forms of genocide.
Values?
History?
Identity?
Of Varag (Lyap-Haldey) and Magog (Papua-Cannibal)?
**********************************************************************

5. "Crises make healthier Russian economy... ...activated agriculture... ...huge amount of grain exported...".

My Comment:

NOT HEALTHIER - SICKER!
DESTROYING MUTUALLY BENEFICIAL TRADE AND PROJECTS WITH NEIGHBOR NATIONS, DESTROYING THEIR ECONOMIES BY BLOCKADES AND ATROCITIES,
RELYING ON "Strana rabov, strana skotov" AND PLUNDER,
CORRUPTING AND LEADING REST OF THE WORLD IN THE SAME DIRECTION - IT IS SICK!

“10 COMMANDMENTS” OF KREMLIN’S DEVILS,
OR OF NEW LENIN'S-ROBESPIER’S DWARFS:
*******************************************************
(Continuation)
****************

6. "Social Security - government priority... ...government employees and entitlements paid same."

My comment:

SURE!
TYRANNY TRY BE SURE THAT RUSSIAN PEOPLE TURN SERFS IN NEW SERFDOM-RUSSIA, LIVING AS DEBASED SLAVES, AS VARAG-PRUSSIAN "POMESH'IKS", SATRAPS AND THEIR APARATUS OF VIOLANCE REINFORCED AND BREED.
*********

7. "No-one interested in Russian opposition... ...it is why it is not allowed on Federal channels".

My comment:

SERFDOM OF BESTIAL VARAG-PRUSSAK NEED NOT OPPOSING VEWS - THE NEW RUSSIAN TYRANNY ACCUSES EVEN CZARIST RUSSIA OF BEING TOO SOFT, LETTING MICROSCOPIC FREEDOM OF SPEECH!
Nobody interested?
But of coarse:
"Odni daleche a inyh (kak Nemtcov) uzh i net!"
"Mertvym svobodu, zhivyh pod arrest!"
*******************************************
8. "Report on Litvinenko death worthless... ...by retired judge."

My comment:

Russians infiltrated World by Millions of scared by them slaves and proxies and they murder them by Hundreds of Thousands, using chain of immobilizing, infecting, poisoning, help of CIA.
My mother was murdered by them, bestially, 7/7/2012.
*************************************************************

9. "Killing of Nemtcov must be fully investigated... ...it is question of reputation of Russian Justice and Government system."

My comment:

Since they offered colonial empires to Brit-Germ-Vienna, invading and destroying nations, they reverence to would-be partners, what I mentioned and they stole, that Nemtcov ancestry might be German (possibly not Prussian), Russia
try prove to the above that they don't murder Germans.
To please Germany, Austria and Her Majesty?
***************************************************

10. It is possible to defeat terrorists only together... West don't collaborate with Russia fight terrorists in Syria... ...we must think about future generations, about price of one human life,
say not... ...Russia behave wrongly, it is why our agencies do not collaborate with Russia... ...terrorists will say it will be better for them if West don't collaborate with Russia."

My comment:

Imagine pure Hitler, crying about pure Germany, demanded all World governments, armies and their agencies "collaborate"
with him to conquer and exterminate the rest of the World!
HE WOULDN'T DARE!
BUT RUSSIA WOULD!
RUSSIA EVEN THREATENS TO SPREAD EVEN MORE DEATH AND STENCH, PSEUDO-ISLAMISTS ARMIES FORGED BY RUSSIA AND MORE TO TRASH AND DESTROY THE WORLD!
JUST KNEEL TO THEM!
TODAY UKRAINE - TOMOROW WHOLE WORLD!

How about precious life of my mother that you bestially murdered, Russia?

People are still led into confusion about key issues... thus, as planned, the debate will rage on... without ever reaching logical conclusions. IMHO... look at the physical evidence to discover the HOW! That will lead to the WHO. Apply the bigger Geo-political and Financial picture of the time... and there is the WHY. Answers in short order .. HOW... Modified Tactical Nuclear Weapons... the only means to produce the physical evidence. WHO... the US and/or Israel... the only ones with such weapons... and access. More specifically... the US Government in collusion with the Federal Reserve... and all puppets at their disposal. WHY... to avoid the Illegal activities of the Government (Bush) and the Fed... in funding the Economic collapse of Russia !!! Subsequent rationale for new wars was a collateral benefit ! Putin's gradual release of further corroborating evidence provides further proof of guilt... and reason why he has a serious ax to grind... in now standing up to the 'Banksters' manipulated USA.

Congratulations, Brian

The Kremlinoid trolls are back - from the "US," no less.

That makes them far more "credible," does it not?

You have your own trolls, Brian - clearly you are being watched, and the Kremlinoids think your credibility can be undermined by comments from the "US."

Yes, elmer, the best thing to do is just ignoring the trolls - let them get their steam out, as long as they can get their salary (in inflation-hit roubles) - and then we other can have our debates on a more serious foundation. There is no reason to discuss with them. It is just waste of time. By the way - when Putler's regime finally crumbles, the same trolls have to go out finding new work - and depending upon what kind of system is replacing this ugly regime, they might or might not find some new propaganda machine - maybe with a completely new view - which will pay them for their (new) 'opinions' then.

And the kremlinoid messages are strikingly closely spaced: just 10 minutes apart; they are likely in the same room

Sergia/ William (from USA) very very twisted comments. Anyone with any simple logic can understand Putin and Lavrov swore to the world the little green men in Crimea and then Eastern Ukraine were the people's militia. Had nothing to do with Russia. Then in his yearly talk, the big guy pow wow to the nation, Putin admitted they were Russian infiltrators. No one believed these two clowns to begin with and they proved themselves so. The stigma still and will endure even with media disinformation by trolls.
Syria is all about keeping there military base in Syria and destabilizing Europe with refugees and what other cyber /hybrid means they can for an eventual retake, if they can get away with it, the glorious lands the USSR "liberated" from the Nazis.
North Korea, China, Russia and even Iran are mouthing the same threats. That threat is "You want another WW?" The interpretation is clear we get what we want or else we shoot you.
In defense of our forefathers and what they had to suffer it is about time to provide proper arms to the Syrian opposition and get the THAAD well deployed ASAP. Threats from Putin with Nuclear Weapons is in line with a proper response. If Generals Patton and MacArthur would have been listened to by the western politicians we would not be in this situation now. Possibly we could enjoy life and what we have been given rather than tax / capitalist / communist / religious troopers trying to do the other guy in.
"The capitalists will sell you the rope"
When its all over it will be exactly as it was before it started.
Nobody believed Putin in Crimea and nobody believes him now.
