A portrait of VVP is hung in a lift and the reactions filmed...

Of course, we do not know if the reactions are typical...

Funny as....

I'd say people dont randomly talk to themselves out loud.

Looking at the source, they'd have chosen selectively. The bird having her mate take photos of her kneeling was funny.

I'd say you don't observe Russians

It was all scripted. It is just a funny gag and nothing else.

It is interesting to note the views of those who claim they 'know' Russia and cannot recognise Russians and a their ambivalent attitude to VVP.

I think we all agree that Putin doesn’t have unanimous support but every sane man and his dog knows, that he’s extremely popular and more popular by percentage than any western politician.

Is the election a bit wiffy? No doubt. But it takes a special kind of Russophobic retard to go to the lengths you do.

I believe you cannot read Russian - as even the 'effectively controlled by a state mate oligarch' social media platforms are awash with less than supportive posts.. I am constantly shocked by the number of people I see registering on Telegram  - who told me it was a terrorist network ...    SC has Telegram - but not on her RU phone, btw ..

The correct term would be 'Kremlin-phobic' as I'm clearly a Russophile..   The Russophobe term is now used by 'patriots' who disagree that VVP and his team are failing whilst ensuring the gravy train doesn't stop ...

But accuracy and attention to detail - is secondary to the need to make stuff up .. ;)


I believe the scene's were not 'scripted' - but I guess the MT is not allowed in RU as it's journos questioned the regime too much ..

Moby next time your in St Petersburg let me know we can go meet plenty of Russians and you can tell them your thoughts on Putin.. :laugh:

Of course you could always hook up with "Seasoned" for the weekend Im sure he would be able to introduce you to lots of Putin haters, mostly unemployed or can't be assed to work.

People always see what they want to see.. just like I could go to a bar in Bavaria and probably meet a whole bunch of people who think Adolf Hitler is hero..

You see what you want to see..and hear what you want to hear.. as for yourself I would guess thee only people you know in Russia are your type of people .. persistent moaners..oh yes with empty apartments in Sochi..and a few coloured guys who have been racially abused like they all are.. :laugh:



I support no government anywhere, ever, never. No institution, No religion!!
