  1. It will not surprise me one little ‘iota’ if this act by the two “black widows” will give fuehrer Putin the excuse to launch greater repression by his Russian Gestapo to bring real/imaginary foes and or critics of his beloved mother of ALL ruSSias to heel, just like the rest of his fawning lap dogs are currently doing.

    The sad part is that violence only breeds further, and in many cases greater violence.

    Hitler’s “kristalnacht” of the Juden and their property will pale into insignificance with Putler’s ‘kristalnacht’ of the ‘Musselman’ and their property (including their toilets), which undoubtedly will set new limits to the meaning of the action taken by his cohorts of Nashi, KGB and et al.

  2. Veteran Russian Rights Activist Believes She Was Targeted For Attack
    Last updated (GMT/UTC): 01.04.2010 09:16

    Veteran Russian rights activist Lyudmila Alekseyeva says she probably was the target of a pre-planned attack at a memorial to commemorate victims of the Moscow bombings that killed 39 people.

    The 82-year-old Alekseyeva was hit across the head on March 31 as she gave media interviews after laying flowers on the platform at the Park Kultury metro station, the site of one of the deadly March 29 suicide bombings.

    An RFE/RL Russian Service correspondent who was at the event said the man hit Alekseyeva with his open hand and cursed her. (See video of the actual attack here.)

    He added that none of the nearby policemen acted to detain the attacker. Instead, the man was apprehended by onlookers and taken to a police station.

    Leading opposition figure Boris Nemtsov, who was accompanying Alekseyeva, took her home after the incident. He told RFE/RL’s Russian Service she was suffering from a headache and might have suffered a concussion.

    Alekseyeva later told Reuters she felt fine.

    Russia’s Ombudsman Vladimir Lukin called the attack “a horrible incident.”

    The suspect, named as Konstantin Pereverzev, has been charged with assault and is to remain in custody until trial.

    Alekseyeva, the chairwoman of the Moscow Helsinki Group, has for decades been one of Russia’s most prominent human rights activists.

    This past New Year’s Eve she was detained during an anti-Kremlin protest, a move that prompted condemnation from Washington and the European Union.

  4. What is this creepy thing?

    I alwyas thought the “militia” is recruiting from the other kinds of genetical mutants.

    • Looks like Rita Tushingham as “the Girl” from the 1965 Movie Doctor Zhivago. You found her !
      God, she is as ugly as a stomach pump.


      • Ah, so it’s just an ugly woman with a really bad haircut.

        I thought it’s an ugly guy with a really bad haircut.

        (The other militia there were male and fat.)

        • Well, whether this dark-haired dark-eyed human being is a man or a woman, she looks like a normal representative of the Chechen people or some other Caucuses minority, and your making fun of her is simply bigotry against “dark” non-Slavic Russian citizens, something that you accuse your Russian opponents of.

  5. Hey, LR – what are you talking about? That was an Article 31 demonstration, completely unrelated to the terror act. Maybe I’m missing something, but WHERE is there any evidence that this was a commemorative demonstration in honor of the dead of the terror acts? Oh, I forgot – you don’t give a damn about facts.\


    You are missing something because, like the ape that you are, you chose not to read our links. The protesters were wearing black arm bands, carrying flowers and REMAINING SILENT because they had changed their protest into a memorial due to the tragedy.

    You are an illiterate, lying cretin.

  6. Here’s a link that explains that it was a REGULARLY SCHEDULED demonstration.

    But, of course, little things like facts don’t matter in your pathological hatred of all things Russian. You don’t even care that you misreport the Article 31 demonstration – something that should be commended, not abused for your vile anti-Russian hatred.


    Are you saying that the police were acting properly? Our criticism was that they didn’t, but instead arrested Kozlovsky and beat up a little old woman. You ought to lay off vodka for at least a few hours before you make public printed statements others can read. You’re babbling gibberish.

    • So, this was a demonstration organized by Limonov’s Naz-Bolshevik Party?


      Eduard Limonov leads the National Bolshevik party, a group with a muddled ideology and an incendiary symbol – a flag that fuses Nazi and Soviet imagery. Yet his group has joined forces with liberals and free-market democrats to criticize the Kremlin and take to the streets.

      • @Limonov

        Oh, so-scary.

        Give me a break.


        The conflict between the FSB and NBP was exacerbated by the tactics of “direct action,” in which NBP activists publicly attacked people they considered symbols of the regime or domestic or foreign allies of the Kremlin. The NBP’s favorite tactics were throwing mayonnaise or tomatoes at prominent public figures. Since 1998, such people as former Prime Minister Mikhail Kasyanov, NATO Secretary-General Lord George Robertson, Central Election Commission Chairman Aleksandr Veshnyakov, and film director Nikita Mikhalkov were subjected to such attacks by the NBP, while former Soviet President Mikhail Gorbachev and Great Britain’s Prince Charles were hit in face with bunches of flowers.


        In prison, Limonov wrote the book “The Other Russia,” in which he dropped many of the radical dogmas of national bolshevism and changed his mind about the past and future of Russia. For example, in the mid-1990s NBP activists shocked people by chanting in public places “Stalin, Beria, Gulag,” but after personal experience with modern Russian prisons Limonov and his followers stopped romanticizing state-security organs and began calling President Vladimir Putin’s Russia a “police state.”

        Under pressure from State Duma deputies, Limonov was released in June 2003 and continued his political evolution toward a coalition with democratic forces and the left-wing opposition against the Kremlin. The product of this evolution was the new NBP political program released in 2004 containing almost the same points as Yabloko’s, for example.

        According to the program posted at http://nbp-info.ru, the new goals of the party should be the development of civil society and restriction of state interference in public and personal life, facilitation of the registration and activity of political parties, development of independent media and allowing criticism of the president and government on state-controlled television, civilian control over law enforcement and the FSB, restoration of the social-security network, curtailing of bureaucracy, and the end of the war in Chechnya.

        • Robert,

          You are undermining your own cause: paining Russia as a land of racists. For ages, until Kasparov joined Limonov, Limonov’s NBP has been mis-portrayed both by the hateful Western propaganda and by Putin as “neo-Nazis”. If you keep on exposing how wrong accusations of “Nazism” against Russians are, soon the real truth will come out. So, don’t cut-off the branch that you are siting on.


          Neonazi flags in Russia

          National Bolshevik Party flag

          The flag is based on the nazi scheme (red, a centered white disk with a black symbol); instead of the swastika there is the sickle-and-hammer device.
          Giuseppe Bottasini, 1997

          This is a flag of the National Bolshevik Party led by Eduard Limonov. The party’s only a handful of extremist-minded students, but they are present at any rally that takes place in Moscow. They are calling for a revolution and extermination of all non-Russians in Russia.
          Grigory Kuznetsov, 29 Jan 1999

          See? Limonov and Kasparov’s rallies are “calling for extermination of all non-Russians in Russia”, evidently including Kapsarov himself along the various Jewish, Armenian and Tatar BNP members. :-)

            Are you drugs or just drunk?

            And anyway, here’s their website:


            So you can read what they really say.

  7. Violence cannot help them now. The Putin crowd lacks an idiology. They have nothing to help sustain themselves. This has been evident for some time.

  8. It is interesting that the famous/notorious “liberal-democrat” Valeria Novodvorskaya agrees with Putin that Limonov’s demonstrations should be dealt with very harshly. When asked what she would do if she became President of Russia, she replied that she would install freedom and democracy by shutting down Limonov and other opposition leaders:


    Q: Imagine that you are twenty-four hours have become president of Russia …

    Novodvorskaya: K власти должны прийти просветители, которые в первую очередь запретили бы лимоновцам, баркашовцам, скинхедам и всякой прочей нечисти бегать по нашим улицам. The power should go to enlighteners, who should first of all ban Limonov’s people, Barkashov’s people, skinheads and all other scum from running in our streets.
