EDITORIAL: Russia, Nation of Cheaters

Russia, Nation of Cheaters

We continue to believe that much can be learned, and much insight gained, about the true nature of Russia as a nation by studying the country’s wretched legacy of pathetic athletic exploits.

It can hardly surprise anyone even vaguely familiar with the work of the Transparency International think tank, for instance, to learn that in the run-up to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympiad so many Russian athletes have already been caught cheating, through the use of performance-enhancing drugs, that the President of the International Olympic Committee has openly made a demand to the President of Russia to clean up his nation’s act in order to avoid disgracing the entire worldwide athletic community.

Making things even worse, the only athlete actually caught cheating during the last Winter Olympics, Olga Pyleva, was also a Russian, and because of a loophole in the regulations she is being permitted to compete this year even though a recent rule change will ban such competitors in the future.

The IOC’s warning to Russia was humiliating in its severe tone and public nature. Properly, stiff sanctions are being threatened to bring lawless Russian behavior back within international norms.  Hard questions are being asked about why Russia’s conduct has grown so egregious under the rule of Vladmir Putin. Where was Putin when all this was occurring? Was he too busy bashing the West to worry about his own nation’s flagrant misdeeds.

And yet, far stronger actions ought to have been taken.  It is, quite simply, a moral outrage that this nation dares to claim host duties in 2014.  How can a country with one of the very worst records for shameless cheating in the entire world possibly be considered for the honor of hosting the games?

In a recent poll, 64% of Russian respondents asserted either that Olympics judges are biased against Russia or did not know if they could be fair.  Undoubtedly, Russians are able to convince themselves that the entire world abuses performance drugs as much as Russian athletes or that the charges against the Russians are part of a vast Russophobic conspiracy (without being able to decide which variant is best in many cases).  Hardly any Russians will ask themselves whether perhaps, just perhaps, Russians are cheating more than other athletes because Russians generally lie, cheat and steal more than other countries and do nothing to impose any vague morality on their transactions.  Even fewer Russians will ask whether reform is necessary, or why reform hasn’t be implemented already by the Putin regime.

In our view, the IOC is undermining the very legitimacy of the Olympic movement itself by awarding the 2014 games to Russia.  Not only are Russians obviously incapable of upholding the Olympic ideals, their naked aggression against tiny Georgia, their shameless crackdown on democracy and civil society, and their relentless provocation of the Western democracies all add up to just one thing: Russia is not qualified to host the games, and must be divested.  The IOC is enabling and indeed encouraging Russian corruption to continue by allowing Russia to use the Olympics as a propaganda tactic, and this is a serious error.

All that is to say nothing, of course, of Russia’s epidemic of terrorism and tumult sweeping through the very Caucasus region where it proposes to stage the games like wildfire.  The IOC is risking lives by allowing this to occur.  It should reverse course and divest Russia immediately.

  1. It is not only in Russia. They are bad news anywhere.

  2. [All that is to say nothing, of course, of Russia’s epidemic of terrorism ]

    I once read some idiot suggest that IOC should stop awarding Olympic Games to USA because of the Islamic terrorism like 9-11.

    Wouldn’t re-scheduling Olympic Games because of terrorism be a capitulation to terrorists?

    • If you had a brain and/or could read, you ridiculous little maggot, you would know that incidents of terrorism on the US homeland ARE FAR MORE RARE than in Russia. Every single day one reads about another Russian policeman or government official who has been murdered by separatists in the Caucasus. That simply doesn’t happen in the USA.

      And if it did, Americans would be the first to admit that the games should not be held on their territory until they could guarantee their safety. Russians, however, simply could not care less how many lives they risk to get their jollies over international attention.

      There is NO PRECEDENT in history for sending young Olympians into a terrorist meat grinder like Sochi represents, and that’s a simple fact. The IOC’s action is totally demented.

      If dozens of athletes are killed in Sochi in a terrorist attack, what will your response be then? Oops, sorry about that?

      • [And if it did, Americans would be the first to admit that the games should not be held on their territory until they could guarantee their safety.]

        I disagree. Telling the terrorists that if they succeed in committing enough terrorist acts, we Americans will stop hosting Olympics, will encourage anti-American terrorism.

        • I thought you said you were a Russian?

        • You are truly depraved, Artie, if you have no problem sacrificing the lives of young Americans so Russia can prove it’s tough on domestic terrorism. Sorry to disappoint you, but Americans don’t hold Russia that dear to their hearts.

          We urge you to step out on any American street corner and make that declaration. We’d love to watch as your fellow Americans bash in your so-called brains. After that, you might “think” differently, cretin.

          • Well, Americans don’t hold Russia dear to their hearts, but you definitely hold Russia close to your dildo.

            LA RUSSOPHOBE RESPONDS:

            Now the next time anyone asks us whether the defenders of Vladimir Putin are civilized and educated or barbarian morons, we can simply direct them to this “comment” for the perfectly succinct answer. Bolshoe spasibo tebe dorogoi!

          • [We urge you to step out on any American street corner and make that declaration]

            Which declaration? “Telling the terrorists that if they succeed in committing enough terrorist acts, we Americans will stop hosting Olympics, will encourage anti-American terrorism”? OK. Gladly.

  3. larussophobe I like your comment “We’d love to watch as your fellow American bash in your so-called brains.”

    Now come on give the cretin a break, he hasn’t any brains to bash in.

  4. Yuk verniece you are crude, the language of this, your second article like your first one seems to confirm that you are a street walker (or something like that).

    How about keeping your comments above the navel. This is not the blog for such or whatever fantasies you may harbor.

  5. There is only one solution and that is select SARAH PALIN and she would boyocot SOTCHI!

    Sarah Palin where are you!? We love you!!

    Obama WEAK

  6. Did you know that a chimp knows more about sports than you do?

    From another of your editorials it was crystal clear you know absolutely nothing about sports, so i will not heat up on that fabulous quote of yours: “…as a nation by studying the country’s wretched legacy of pathetic athletic exploits.”

    Oh man, if a nation stamped its legacy in the history of world sports that´s precisely the Soviet Union; the U.S. was still going through the stone age in gymnastics when the USSR was shocking the world with legions of superb gymnasts.

    I will agree, however, with that point you make saying its incredible that the 2014 winter Olympics will be held in a location so close to recent terrorist activity, in addition to the utmost incompetence of the Russian government to prevent and counter terrorist action that led to some of the most horrific blood chilling loss of human life in recent history.

    Good point there. Drop the sports subject though [you know nothing about it]. Oh, and Marion Jones was a cheat.

    • @Wonderful contributions to the world:

      And all of them altogether killed far, farless people than were killed by the NKVD Major-General Vasili Blokhin, Russia’s wonderful contribution to world.

      Because only this one Russian serial killer, Blokhin, murdered tens of thousands of people.

      Personally. Shooting them, one by one.

      Oh, and he was even not a criminal.

      @AMERIKKKAN

      Clean your keyboard, K is jammed.

    addendum:

    the US makes up 4% of the world’s population, yet produces 75-80% of the world’s known (documented) serial killers

  10. I watched the opening ceremonies. The voice-overs made mention that there were Russian athletes found with forbidden substances but would be dealt with AFTER the games. Just in time for them to cheat, cry and steal the gold for themselves.
    Sadly, there are Russian athletes who DO work hard. Why should THEIR reputations be tarnished with cheaters, liars and crybabies?

  11. Drogaia Laquinta,

    • LaQuanta Washington

      ЛаКванта, а не ЛаКвнинта, польская пизда!

      • Oh haha, it seems you were right MCC, “LaQuanta” is indeed just a Russian troll. I remember when Russia invaded Georgia, all Western news websites were flooded by Russian trolls who were pretending to be Americans, Chechens, Ossetes, Somalis etc. What’s your real name, “LaQuanta Washington”? You’re probably called Ivan or Aliosha or Borat or something.

        • I guess you found something funny in that preceding “LaQuanta” response. Too bad I cannot read it

          • I don’t understand Russian, but the fact that the “liberated black woman” replied in Russian is a pretty good clue about how authentic this “LaQuanta” character is. The other clues being, of course, as you’ve noticed elsewhere, that the type of outdated 70s black power language this person uses doesn’t really sound very plausible.

            Even the name is a bit too stereotypical to be convincing, ghetto names are a lot more imaginative nowadays.

            • It’s not funny at all. LaQuanta’s Russian comments are very vulgar. I’m not sure if I’m allowed to post a translation here.

  12. Hello Mr. Ouch:

    You remember I promised to let you know when the first anti-American statement appears. Read this list of serial killers above. Yes, the United States has given the world nothing but crime — don’t you think it was posted here with such an idea in mind?

  13. This “LaQuanta” person (some Russian troll pretending to be African American) reminds me of this scene:

    • Why are you lying? Nobody was “caught doping”. According to FIS, it was done ” “to protect the health of the athletes” :

      VANCOUVER, Feb 14: Niyaz Nabeev of Russia and Estonian cross-country skier Kaspar Kokk will not be allowed to compete until February 17 after high haemoglobin levels showed up in pre-competition tests.

      Nabeev has been penalised with a “start prohibition” which forced him to miss Sunday’s normal hill Nordic combined event but he can compete in long hill combined for which training starts on Friday. Kokk misses the 15km cross country event scheduled for Monday but is eligible to return in the men’s individual sprint on Wednesday.

      Some athletes generate high haemoglobin levels naturally while the condition can also signal dehydration. Also, however, it has potential links with possible blood doping using synthetic haemoglobin or transfusions – hence the strategy of “preventative” suspension.

      Hence the FIS described the “start prohibition” as a means “to protect the health of the athlete” not a punishment. Both athletes must pass new tests before they can be cleared to compete.

      • LOL- You’re the liar.

        http://www.abc.net.au/news/stories/2008/08/06/2325292.htm

        Thanks for amusing me ;)

        • http://illumin.usc.edu/article.php?articleID=124

          Only an a$$hole would believe that increased hemoglobin occurred ‘naturally’ just before an Olympic Event… And only a complete moron would believe that Russia has actually made any kind of effort to eliminate their wide-spread doping problem errr policy…

          • Are you accusing Estonia – an EU member and enemy of Russia – of intentionally raising hemoglobin levels in its athletes?

            “VANCOUVER, Feb 14: Niyaz Nabeev of Russia and Estonian cross-country skier Kaspar Kokk will not be allowed to compete until February 17 after high haemoglobin levels showed up in pre-competition tests.”

      • No, the liar is you:

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Carl_Lewis

        In 2003, Dr. Wade Exum, the United States Olympic Committee’s director of drug control administration from 1991 to 2000, gave copies of documents to Sports Illustrated which revealed that some 100 American athletes who failed drug tests and should have been prevented from competing in the Olympics were nevertheless cleared to compete. Among those athletes was Carl Lewis.[70]

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Use_of_performance-enhancing_drugs_in_sport

        Olympic statistics show the weight of shot putters grew 14 per cent between 1956 and 1972, whereas steeplechasers grew 7.6 per cent. The gold medallist pentathlete Mary Peters said: “A medical research team in the United States attempted to set up extensive research into the effects of steroids on weightlifters and throwers, only to discover that there were so few who weren’t taking them that they couldn’t establish any worthwhile comparisons.”[32]

        Jay Silvester, of the physical education department of Brigham Young university in the USA, questioned fellow competitors at the 1984 Olympics. The range of steroid use he found ranged from 10 mg a day to 100 mg.

        Bay Area Laboratory Co-operative (BALCO), a sports nutrition center in California allegedly linked to doping of many high-profile athletes.

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Bay_Area_Laboratory_Co-operative

        The Bay Area Laboratory Co-Operative (BALCO) was an American company that had supplied a number of high-profile sports stars from the United States and Europe with the Clear and human growth hormone for several years.

        Among the athletes listed in the record of BALCO customers were:

        * MLB players: Barry Bonds, Jason Giambi, Gary Sheffield, Benito Santiago, Jeremy Giambi, Bobby Estalella, Armando Rios

        Drug use

        In an interview with the New York Times in September 2006, Andreu admitted that he had taken EPO to help prepare for the 1999 Tour de France, when he was riding for the US Postal team which assisted Lance Armstrong to his first Tour victory.[3] Andreu said he was introduced to performance enhancing drugs in 1995 while he was riding for Motorola, where Lance Armstrong was also a rider. Another former Motorola rider, Steven Swart, admitted to taking EPO while on that team in L.A. Confidential: The Secrets of Lance Armstrong.[4]

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Marion_Jones

        Marion Lois Jones is a former world champion track and field athlete. She won five medals at the 2000 Summer Olympics in Sydney, Australia but has since agreed to forfeit all medals and prizes dating back to September 2000 after admitting that she took performance-enhancing drugs.[1][2]

        http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Ben_Johnson_%28sprinter%29

        Benjamin Sinclair “Ben” Johnson is a Canadian former sprinter, who enjoyed a high-profile career during most of the 1980s, winning two Olympic Bronze medals, and an Olympic Gold which was subsequently rescinded. He set consecutive 100 m world records at the 1987 World Championships in Athletics and the 1988 Summer Olympics, but he was disqualified for doping

        In October 2007, Jones admitted taking steroids before the Sydney 2000 Summer Olympics and acknowledged that she had, in fact, lied when she previously denied steroid use in statements to the press, to various sports agencies, and—most significantly—to two grand juries.

        • LOL- Oh Arthur, you truly are the idiot everyone claims you to be. No one denies that doping is a problem everywhere. But, nowhere does it appear to be ‘sanctioned’ by the Athletic Governing Body the way it is in Russia…. It’s as if Russia promotes doping just as it “pays” for medals… which is completely pathetic by the way. I mean, how desperate to win are they? It’s just so very Soviet…

          • The number of medals is for them the means of proving their worth, so everything goes. Glory of Russia is at stake, are you kidding?

            The old East Germany was also an avid practitioner of doping. If you are at least 30 years old, you would remember that some of those East German women really looked like men. I mean, no drug test was needed, visual observation was enough.

          • [But, nowhere does it appear to be ’sanctioned’ by the Athletic Governing Body the way it is in Russia…]

            You forgot to provide your evidence. Do you have any? Of course, not. Russian authorities are working hard to weed out dope users:

            Doping-Russian cross-country skier Sidko gets two-year ban

            Wed Jan 27, 2010 11:13am EST

            MOSCOW, Jan 27 (Reuters) – Alena Sidko, one of Russia’s top cross-country skiers, has received a two-year ban for doping, the country’s skiing federation (FLGR) said on Wednesday.

            “She waived the right to test the B sample, so we had no choice but to ban her for two years,” said FLGR president Vladimir Loginov in reference to Sidko, who tested positive for the blood-booster EPO at a home ski race last month.

            Loginov told reporters the 30-year-old had already been kicked out of the Russian Olympic team.

  15. Circassian diaspora’s revoke/boycott campaign:

    http://www.nosochi2014.com/

    • What do Circassians feel about the sad fate of Native Americans in USA?

      • @What do Circassians feel about the sad fate of Native Americans in USA?

        I guess they might be pretty jealous, as the Native Americans were not scattered around the world.

        • No, the Native Americans were not scattered around the world. 90% of them died before they got a chance to escape, and their land was taken by the English-American invaders. The rest live on reservations in USA.

          • @90% of them died before they got a chance to escape

            If they knew what was a disease and how to “escape” it, they probably would. Should I even mention most of them fell sick and died before they have even seen any white people with their own eyes?

            @and their land was taken by the English-American invaders.

            And why not, for example, the Spanish-Mexican invaders? (Yes, I’m still talking only about the today’s US.)

            And are you even aware there are more actually people of German rather than English descent in the United States? No, not the recent immigration (like the Irish one): http://library.thinkquest.org/20619/German.html

            No, of course you don’t know. Nobody goes into such details at your Nashi meetings on “how to distract the Foreign Devils from talking sh!t about our Glorious Motherland on the Internet”.

            @The rest live on reservations in USA.

            I guess you wanted to say “the rest in the US live on reservations” (55.7 million square miles), but anyway only, and any way only 1/3 of them live there today (or some 1.5 million).

            Arthur, I knew already how stupid you are, and I really don’t need you to remind me about this again and again.

            So for the last time now: Shut up already.

  16. The main problem here, as i a see it, is that a huge number of Americans can not deal with reality. So in this case, they can not deal with the crystal clear fact the Soviet Union DID surpass them in world sports almost from A to Z, during the entire duration of the USSR, from 1952 in Helsinki, until Barcelona 1992, where the Unified Team performed. Surpassed in summer Olympics, winter Olympics, and all universiades.

    Only in 2 summer Olympics could the USA surpass the USSR in most total medals, from a total of 9 summer games where the 2 big guys faced each other.

    In the ranch where i live this is called HUMILIATION, and they will not take it.

    They can not face the fact Sports became a matter of the state in the USSR, state policy, which meant having a healthy, strong and fit youth was of national interest, and that as such, the system proved more successful and provided more victory than the type of organization they had in the U.S. in sports.

    Now, use of illegal substances? Of course! But, hey, a state “sponsored”program to foster the use of illegal substances in their athletes? NO WAY. You have, and will never have, evidence to substantiate the ridiculous claim.

    Soviet/russian athletes have cheated, yes. But do you know how many American athletes have cheated? No you don´t, and i am sure that if the truth could be known you would fear it so much you would like to have it buried beneath the ground.

    The argument of Soviet or Russian athletes using banned substances to “enhance performance” becomes more ridiculous if we speak about gymnastics. Like if using a banned substance would give you the skill to be an Olga Korbut, or Elena Mukhina. Absolutely ridiculous.

    I find it simpler here, the Olympics were a comfort zone for America; they were the big guy in the hood, and would always dominate the competition. Oh, but hell that changed in 1952 in Helsinki when the Bear´s sports heavy machinery arrived in the Olympics. The American comfort was over. And you need explanations for that. And the explanations that would in fact help you understand what happened are to scary to be confronted, so you make up your delusional cases.

    The arguments you use to “explain”, or better said, to “justify” the doping cases among American athletes are ruddy ridiculous.

    One day i will hear from you people that in the contest for reaching the outer space “the Soviets cheated” and that´s the only reason why Sputnik was the first satellite ever.

    In the contest for supremacy between USA-USSR everything was valid to prevail, and sports was not a field that would remain indifferent to the type of contest the world was witnessing.

    Both sides cheated. The USSR was superior. Period. Deal with it, live with it. Walk on.

    • Stephanie Barbosa

      yeah, the only difference is that USSR did it as a result of Ukrainians, Belarusians, Latvians, Lithuanians, Estonians, Georgians etc performing for USSR.

      Russia as a sole state, it has not even been close against USA

      • [Russia as a sole state, it has not even been close against USA]

        The population of USA is more than twice that of Russia. Even if you combine Russia with all other ex-Soviet republics, the total population is less than that of USA.

        Russia accounted for half the population of USSR and for more than half of USSR medals.

        USSR as a whole had a lower population than USA and yet won more medals.

        What’s not clear or not fair?

        • It is NOW my moronic troll, but from 1945 to the late 70’s/early 80’s the USSR had parity with the US in population, in fact its population was larger prior to the late 60’s.

    • Cheating is beside the point. The U.S.S.R. used professional athletes disguised as amateurs and put them on state payroll. We had colleges kids competing and getting no compensation. That was the difference in those years 1952-1992, when professionals were barred.

      Your statement that “sports became a matter of the state in the U.S.S.R., state policy, which meant having a healthy, strong and fit youth was of national interest” is simply ridiculous.

      Professional sports would never produce that “healthy, strong and fit youth” like aerobics or jogging or other kinds of non-competitive exercise might.

      If you look at former athletes, you will plainly see that in many cases that not only was not their health enhanced, it was ruined. And in any way, the facts don’t bear out your assertion that the U.S.S.R. promoted Olympic sports for health reasons. Just look at their life expectancy.

      It is clear that the USSR invested in sports for purely ideological reasons, i.e., in a vain attempt to prove the superiority of Communism, just for the same reasons they invested in ballet and the like. So, they did prove that with Olympics being a state business you can garner lots of medals. That’s all they proved, and it seems China is following the same path now.

  17. Stephanie Barbosa

    then again, USA did it and does it as a result of physically strong African Americans and other nationalities, definitely not as a result of 5th generation white Anglo Saxons

    if you put solely pure white Anglo Saxons against pure Russians, I’d suspect Russia would clean them out.

    those strong African Americans!

    • You must be out of your mind. I only know of one black person who got a medal in winter Olympics. Who won the rest of those medals? As for summer, while blacks are very prominent in track and field and some games such as basketball or football, there are many sports where they are not, such as swimming.

      I also resent this insinuation that comparisons must be made with “Anglo Saxons.” There are tens of millions of white Americans who are not Anglo Saxons

      • [I only know of one black person who got a medal in winter Olympics.]

        No wonder. You don’t know much. Look up the following names:

        Shani Davis
        Vonetta Flowers
        Debi Thomas

        • OK, three. I only remembered Shani Davis. Even with three black medal winners it is ridiculous to say that American Olympic achievements were made by blacks. Of course, you did not make that assertion so my remark is not directed at you.

      • Stephanie Barbosa

        lol what? most track and field events are dominated by african americans.always have. and track and field events dominate total medal counts in summer olympics.

        and I made that Anglo Saxon comparison on purpose just to raise a reaction lol

        kinda like when La Russophobe strictly pins the incompetence to striclty ethnic Russian athletes
        and how USSR was only successful as a result of everyone else but Russians

        • Don’t make us laugh. Black achievement and contribution in athletics is undeniable, but to say that this is why U.S. had Olympic victories is simply false. Even in field in tracks black athletes have dominated only in some disciplines, not the entire field. And there are plenty medals in other sports, like swimming

  18. Just look at the russias miserable performance in the 210 Olympics – so far. Nary a podium to be seen. Whaaaaaaaaa!

  19. Russia came third in the olympics, but in the para olympics they fell to 8th, Russia has no time for the disabled.

  20. This Laquinta, Is no African American it is a filthy Russian troll, what this thing is saying to MCC in Russian is this,

    MCC your are a Polish C U N ext Tuesday

    I think you can work it out, These Russians that comment are rude foul mouthed cretins my message to these creeps is “rot in hell”.

    • R John
      [MCC your are a Polish C U N ext Tuesday. These Russians that comment are rude foul mouthed cretins]

      The only rude foul mouthed bigoted cretin here is you.

  21. Listen Arthur I do not use foul language like your Ape friend,You really are an appalling hypocrite, you cry like a baby when people give you a hard time,but when your Russian beast friend uses the worst language possible it seems to meet with your approval, you are a typical Russian “dim wit”.

    • R John,

      If you think that the people here cannot immediately figure out what you meant by “Polish C U N ext Tuesday”, you are have a slightly bloated view of your own abilities and a slightly deflated view of the abilities of the other people.

      [you cry like a baby when people give you a hard time}

      I do? Please provide reference to my “crying”.

      [when your Russian beast friend uses the worst language possible]

      Who is my “Russian friend” and what did he do to make you cry? Did he use your term “C U N ext Tuesday”?

  22. Can anyone give me personal information on Janie Lou Gibbs ,from durning the 1965-68 period.Are there any family photo’s,particullary from the Pleasant Grove Baptist in Cordele,Georgia? I am researching for a possible book and no information is to small not to be appreciated.Thank you very much.

  23. Arthur are you really as thick as you appear?, this troll Laquinta posted terrible language, but used the Russian language to hide it from our hostess, I was letting people know what this thing said, do you understand this Arthur or does it go over your head like most things appear to do, Now Arthur you can speak Russian so you understood what the thing was saying but because it was attacking someone you don’t like you said nothing, as for your crying did you not recently complain to our hostess about the rude treatment some dish out to you, problem is Arthur your pretty dame rude yourself my advice to you is; if you can’t take it then don’t dish it out. You pathetic little cry baby (boo hoo).

    Here you are cry baby this is some of your complaining remember this…. Hang on I will get my hanky I may need to dry my eyes,

    o I myself was insulted by Wal just because I said that the use of “В Украину” vs “На Украину” depends on your political position, who chose to talk about his sexual positions instead:
    ————————
    Wal // February 10, 2010 at 1:17 am
    Oh! The rat pounces again! Surprise surprise! And what is your position Arty? On hands and knees ready to receive?
    ————————
    So, why is it OK for Wal to assault me, while not OK for me to point out that Bohdan doesn’t know the Uke alphabet?

  24. O poor little baby Arty did big bad Wal say naughty things to our little baby? O did dums, please Wal don’t be a bad boy, please say sorry to little baby Arty remember children baby Arty is very delicate and we must all be especially nice to our little baby.Now I think it’s time your mummy tucked you into bed baby Arty its well past your bed time.

    • R John – don’t believe that lying imbecile arthur, ‘coz’ when he pointed out that I don’t know the Ukrainian alphabet, he was most definitely lying again – oops I mean STILL lying.

      I explained to this moronic ape that I had attended Ukrainian school for several years and hence knew the Ukrainian alphabet and language, after all that was the language of first choice while I lived with my parents. But do you think this had any effect on our brain dead moron, none whatsoever as once he makes up his mind, those lies are the gospel by his demented logic.

      Personally I avoid him like the plague, as I don’t like lowering myself to his low level of intellect. His only strong points are that he cannot reason, nor can he answer logic – in which case instead he invariably uses his illogical reasoning mentality and finally he is in reality a closet communist, reporting their biased propaganda as fact.

  25. Bohdan, I too try to avoid this person unless he confronts me, he really is a “waste of space”

  26. Let us not cover up American cheating by blaming Russians. With time passing, we are learning new and new shocking details of the massive American cheating in Olympics, often at the expense of Russian athletes. Just last week we have learned the latest scandal: how the Americans cheated Russians out of gold medal in the 2004 Olympics:

    http://www.google.com/hostednews/afp/article/ALeqM5jidEbnnAZnxoooyuct5Bt2n-Acqw

    US women to lose 2004 Olympic relay gold

    (AFP) – Mar 16, 2010

    PARIS — The US women’s 4x400m relay team will be stripped of their gold medal from the 2004 Athens Olympics after the suspension of Crystal Cox for doping, world athletics governing body IAAF confirmed.

    “This athlete recently accepted a 4-year period of ineligibility and disqualification of her results from 2001 after having admitted her involvement in the BALCO conspiracy,” the IAAF said in a statement.

    “She took part in the 4x400m US Relay team who won the gold medal at the 2004 Athens Olympic Games. According to the IAAF Competition Rules in effect in 2004, the US relay team results will be disqualified accordingly.”

    Second-placed Russia are set to receive gold ahead of Jamaica and Britain.

    Some of the biggest stars in US sport have been swept up in the BALCO steroids probe including sprinter Marion Jones, who was stripped of her Olympic titles after admitting to steroid use.

    Meanwhile, US sprinter Justin Gatlin, the Olympic 100m champion in 2004, has had his request for an early return rejected by the Doping Review Board. His four-year ban runs until July 24 next.

  27. Nice blog, i like it, its informative,
    i will visit his blog more often.
    i like your article specially about
    It can hardly surprise anyone even vaguely familiar with the work of the Transparency International think tank, for instance, to learn that in the run-up to the 2010 Vancouver Winter Olympiad so many Russian athletes have already been caught cheating, through the use of performance-enhancing drugs, that the President of the International Olympic Committee has openly made a demand to the President of Russia to clean up his nation’s act in order to avoid disgracing the entire worldwide athletic community

    Cheers

    I don’t understand Russian, but the fact that the “liberated black woman” replied in Russian is a pretty good clue about how authentic this “LaQuanta” character is. The other clues being, of course, as you’ve noticed elsewhere, that the type of outdated 70s black power language this person uses doesn’t really sound very plausible.

    You fokking morons, isnt a Russian entitled to write in russian, in a site “devoted” to Russians? (where this silly anti-russian frenzy has gotten beyond limits)?

    My friendly advice :
    If you want to be successful in your anti-Slav activities (because frankly this goes against all slavs, lets be honest), then you SHOULD at least learn the language.
    But, there is a problem with that approach, if you learn the language, then you have a great deal of chances of starting …. LIKING the Slavic world!!
    so in anycase you are lost.
    IMHO, most of Slavic haters do not have a clue. They are just parrots.
