    By capitalism or by Communism, whatever floats their rusty lodka, the Russians should use more of their vast territory for food production.

    Strange report! UNICEF emphasized that it relies on official Russian statistics and yet the only report from Russia was the one in June 2020, when it told the UN that it eliminated hunger and extreme poverty as part of its sustainable development goals.

    This of course bodes the question, where did UNICEF get its so called 'statistics' from? Could they have come from Kiev's a$$.

    Putin worships Stalin like a false god!

    This topic is a flashback to the early 1930s when Stalin's evil marxist collectivization of agriculture and mass execution of family farmers who resisted caused Russian mass starvation. So what did Stalin do? Stalin STOLE harvests from Ukraine [even stealing food from inside people's homes] causing millions of Ukrainians to starve to death while he exported much of their harvests for cash.

    I think they will need to burn a lot more CO2 and quicken global warming before that land will be of use for vast farming.

    Alternatively they built indoor hydroponic and vertical farms to be able to grow longer seasons.

    carbon dioxide is often a product of burning. How can one oxidize carbon dioxide?

    One of the benefits of having oligarchs, is that instead of burdening tax payers, all Putin has to do is ask them to foot the bill. They're the ones who built the green houses after Putin embargoed foods from the EU. That way Russia could have its own vegetables in the winter,

    In Putin's "Russia" most of the wealthy oligarchs are NOT ethnic Russian.

    Ethnic Russians have again become poor serfs in their own homeland.

    You should know the history... Alexander II freed both the Russian serfs and the jews [jews from the Pale of Settlement.] Fast forward to today... like wealthy lords, jews have become powerful wealthy oligarchs in Russia... while ethnic Russians are back to being serfs.

    That is what studying Russian history told me. You should try it.

    As for Iran... you might be surprised to know that many jews live in Iran's capital [there are also synagogues] and have their own jewish respresenative in Iran's government.

    Again... try educating yourself.

    They're London's favorite snack. They can't use them up fast enough. Oh that's right I forgot about Polonium, it's another favorite.

    Ukraine wih it's rich black earth, was the bread basket of Europe - and later on of the Soviet Union. It was eyed by the mega corporations no doubt, but first they had to get the land - so Poroshenko accommodated them willingly with the draft. After all if there aren't young men to work the fields then they'd have to sell - and at a very low price.

    So how do I know that? Well Putin asked Poroshenko why he was killing off all his young men? Seems he had more concern for them than their own president.

    All the corruption in Russia has passed poverty on to the Russian people.

    Khodorovsky was given money by the Rothchilds, so no doubt the other Jews were too. It doesn't matter though as long as their allegiance is to Russia. Putin told the oligarchs that as long as they pay their taxes and do not enter politics then they can hold on to their ill gotten goods.

    The ones who refused to pay taxes ran mostly to London - who welcomed them and their money of course. When the Skripals were poisoned, some became frightened that they might become London's latest propaganda asset against Putin, so they began negotiating a return to Russia.

    As for the Russians, they're not into entrepreneurship. Medvedev thought it should be encouraged more.

    Most of it not in the Ukraine is too dry, too cold not fertile or some combination. Russia has never been able to feed itself, that's why it's so big

    Russia does not use the dollar, so its economy can't be measured by the dollar. They use the Ruble and since it doesn't import but only buys what it needs within Russia, its purchasing power parity makes it the 6th economy in the world.

    This doesn't take into account the tax evasion etc. which is rampant in Russia and probably a way of life - which would make its purchasing power parity even higher than the 6th economy.

    A bit of logic here, how can Russia have the second most powerful military force in the world, while helping to feed nations like Syria and the Donbass Republics, when it doesn't have a money making printing press the way we do? Putin does though make the oligarchs pay for Russia's grand shows like rebuilding the resort of Socchi; all the stadiums for the world games and the grand Cathedral of the Resurrection that commemorates the men who died in WWII.

    I suppose that's one reason they're so interested in Lebensraum in Ukraine and elsewhere. All the good farmland is beyond their current borders. If the drama could be set aside, they could get along fine essentially trading oil and other natural resources for food imports.

    After the fall of the Soviet Union [1990s]... jews were infamous for buying up de-nationalized companies pennies on the dollar, liquidating them by selling off the assets for profit... causing ethnic Russians to lose their jobs while the jew oligarchs became extremely wealthy. During that time of mass unemployment many ethnic Russians were starving. I remember a TV report that showed a poor little old Russian lady who only had a small amount of dried pasta left to eat. That was the time in Russia when the word, "oligarchs", was used as a substitute for "jews" because of [to quote the Bible] "fear of the jews." I also remember right after Putin became leader of Russia... in a TV report an average Russian man proudly said Putin was a "Russia man"... in other words, ethnic Russian. Whether that is true or not... one thing is certain... Putin promotes antichrists and racial minorities and empowers "oligarchs." Back in 2013 Putin said publicly that "80-85% of the first soviet government were jews"... apparently he's as proud of that fact as he is of evil antichrist mass-murderer Stalin.

    That is your interpretation. What you're saying is that if someone doesn't publicly condemn others then they must be proud of them. I have read many books about Saints and I've met some future Saints, and I love them because they're not critical, judgmental and even have a great sense of humor. Since they're not condemning and judging others, does this mean that they're praising others regardless if they are thieves, murderers, slanderers, etc., etc.?


    I'm not saying that Vladimir Putin is a Saint, how could any leader of a country be, when they have the responsibility of millions of people on their shoulders. What it means though is that he's a Christian and isn't in a position to judge others. As he once said, his job is to catch terrorists. Its up to God to judge them. As for the revolution, he did become passionate about Lenin when asked. Probably because Lenin made such a mess of things.

    Now a little background. Vladimir Putin was raised with an elderly Jewish couple that lived in the same apartment with his parents. He was very poor and they gave him food many times and treated him like their own son. Sometimes I wonder if what Putin is and has become, might have been because of their influence on his life.

    Putin is also close to the Mufti of Moscow, and he was the only one that trusted Kadorov's father the Imam, and who was willing to speak to him. All the Generals told him not to, since they had suffered greatly in the Chechnyan wars.

    By trusting and befriending him, and by building up Grozny which the Russians at the time resented greatly, Putin saved Russia. During the Chechnyan wars, we were supporting the terrorists so we could split Chechnya from Russia and destroy their pipelines and revenue.


    Kadorov's gratitude towards Vladimir Putin was immense. Not only has he watched over the Caucasus and fought the terrorists so they wouldn't enter Russia, but his men also watch over the deconfliction zones in Syria since they're Sunnis and trusted by the Syrians. The Chechnyans are also used as guards along the Israeli border since the Israelis trust them as well.

    Now here's another thing you don't know. 30% of the people in Israel are Russians and speak Russian - and they're not all Jews, many went there with their son or daughter in laws.. Because of all the Russians living in Israel and the West, Putin doesn't want them coming back into Russia with liberal viewpoints and trying to change the Russian culture and heritage. This is why he amended the Constitution so that no one is allowed to hold high office unless they resided in Russia for 25 years.
