What is Going on in Russia and Company…

Things are not all just fire and smoke on this side of the world. There seems to be lots of interesting things happening:

One thing that I never realized was that there is a thermometer that possibly be the biggest in the world which has been installed on the facade of the new “Federation” business center in Moscow. The overall length of its scale is 106.5 meters. That is a tall thermometer… (Link)

So while Moscow can see how hot is is whether they want to or not lets touch upon Iran. Iran News Fars Agency has released a story that Belarus has sold Iran the S-300 surface-to-air missiles and that caused quite a stir among the Western Press. (Link)

Fars News Agency…

I love following the Fars News Agency you can really get some good stuff from them…

So while Iran was stirring up the world lets stay on the subject and talk about the Western Press being goaded by Fars Agency again. Fars reported that Iranian President Mahmoud Ahmadinejad survived an assassination attempt on Wednesday when a hand grenade was thrown at his convoy! Then a very short time later it was changed to a firecracker was thrown at the convoy. Of course the Western press went crazy and loved the assassination attempt much better than a firecracker thrown. So the story stayed as an assassination attempt as long as possible and now they have rewrote the stories.  I loved it because as it was spreading like a wildfire that Ahmadinejad was being bombed, I was reading about how a stupid idiot tossed a firecracker at the convoy. He was arrested immediately…

So Fars had a hey day yesterday…

Well next on the list is Coca-Cola it seems that Russia has just approved Coke to buy 100% of leading Russian juice producer Nidan Juices. Seems like Pepsi has just bought a juice company not long ago and Coke had already bought a smaller company years ago. Russians are much more into juice than sod so in Russia we are going to have a juice war…

So as the Cola Kings decide the their future in Russia lets go take a look at:

A Russian Blogger got really upset and Putin attempted to respond. “”Head of the Ekho Moskvy FM station, Alexei Venediktov, told RIA Novosti that his team monitor blogs of residents of fire-damaged regions on a daily basis. In the beginning of the week, Ekho Moskvy sent Putin one of the posts and received an answer from the premier. (Link)””

Now I was not really excited about the response that Putin gave and am not sure what he should have said to the guy. I do know that no one from America as high as Putin is in the Russian Government has ever responded to me as I express my dissatisfaction about things. So the simple fact that Putin tried is good enough for me and I feel that this guy got some attention. Maybe that alone will garner some changes….

Lets wrap this mess up with a robot saves the day story on the Russia’s Sarov nuclear research facility. It seems that this facility is in the path of these terrible wildfires. The people are having a worried time about what can happen if this place burns. Of course this all came up because Russia allowed a Military base to go up in flames and is now a pile of ashes. So the people have a legit concern. To counter that concern watch this video…

Now wasn’t that exciting! 🙂

Windows to Russia!
