What Is Happening In Russia This Weekend? (05-24-09)

Hello,

Windows to Russia!
This weekend has been a pretty busy one for Russia. The criminal, political and business scene has been over run with activity. In fact you would not know it was a weekend except half the city went to the villages. So lets see what Russia has been doing this weekend…

Russia’s Energy Minister Shmatko said on Sunday, that the oil production of Russia is actually going up in volume. This is contrary to Western reports that Russia is having a decline. Russia has not ceased putting money into exploration and development. Now it is showing and 2009 figures are going to equal or exceed 2008 oil figures. Well that is good news for the Kremlin but how about some really cool news…

The English pop group “The Beatles” has a new sculpture that has been unveiled at the Iset River in the heart of Yekaterinburg, the largest city in Russia’s Urals. Ringo Starr, John Lennon, George Harrison and Paul McCartney are featured as “white silhouettes fixed to a brick wall”. Under the silhouettes is the lyric: “In the end the love you take is equal to the love you make.”, the last line of the Abby Road song. So now lets jump on over to the Hamas…

Russia has been in some in depth talks with the Hamas and they seem to be working. Lavrov, Russia’s foreign minister said on Sunday that the Hamas Palestinian group has accepted a more reasonable position in negotiations on a peace settlement with Israel. This has been a long week of talks and they are paying off it seems. While Lavrov stays busy as a bee all the time lets see what else Russia is getting into…

Looks like a normal catch bad people weekend. On Saturday Police have found a large storage of multiple weapons hidden in the woods of Russia’s North Caucasus republic of Chechnya, and on Sunday Police have found and removed a bomb planted near a gas pipeline in the Russian North Caucasus Republic of Daghestan. I always think about back home in America and the paranoia that is so common over terrorists. In Russia they are not paranoid they just deal with it and go on about their business. In America they have lost all common sense about terrorist. Maybe Americans need to come here and learn to relax, because America does not have terrorists issues and they do not know what living with terrorists is about…

Lets get political for a moment: A new upstart political party called “Communists of Russia”, which has set an ambitious goal of becoming a full fledged political party. Say that they are the real deal compared to the established party called “The Communist Party of the Russian Federation” (CPRF). They say that they are the answer…

Well I am going to end with that note about the communist. It seems that America still like to use the word communist to insult people and I really do not know why. I would have thought that we would grow up and get over the “You are a commie routine.”

Everyone have a nice weekend!
