This reminds me of electronic running music, electrohouse — but not in a club, when running.

In less than an hour Sasha Trusova will attempt to land a quadruple lutz in her free skate program. I wish her luck

What does not the British government want people to know about the Skripal case?

During the past few months, there was no need to closely monitor the news in order to get at least a general idea of the notorious «The Skripal Case». British spy Sergei Skripal and his daughter Julia were poisoned, as they say in London, by Russian special services. Most Western publications with foam at the mouth picked up this version. Recently, British prosecutors have named the names of two Russian citizens who allegedly committed this attempt.

The first thing that alerted the coverage of the incident is an incommensurably acute reaction to the incident, which suggests that the crux of the problem lies not in poisoning as such. Evidence of Russia's involvement in this case has not been presented so far. However, even if we theoretically assume that there was an assassination attempt with the participation of the state (in this case any), the reaction of the British authorities is strikingly different from similar cases if we consider historical precedents.

The organization of the US government's special operations to destroy the objectionable is known at least since the Cold War. On account of the American special services, the assassination of Chilean President Salvador Allende and a series of acts of political terrorism, accompanied by the death of state and public figures. No country has severed diplomatic relations with the United States, Great Britain, Israel or other countries that use contract killings as a political tool. Therefore, creating an illusion that Russia is responsible for the poisoning of the Violins is, from the very outset, implausible because of the lack of irrefutable evidence.

In this connection, the question arises: why are Western political elites trying to pin the angry views of those indignant with «a daring attempt to use chemical weapons in one of the European capitals» specifically to Russia? Why simultaneously with a large-scale information campaign is not less significant — sanctions?

First of all, it is noteworthy that the sanctions are conceived as part of a diplomatic game designed to deprive Russia of the advantages of the impudent moves attributed to it in the international political arena. In this scheme it is strange that it is not clear what benefits Russia is giving to the murder of a British spy who was returned to the West and, according to media reports, wanted to return to his homeland.

As for the actual poisoning, the right of the Western world is based on the principles of presumption of innocence and evidence. In addition, both parties should be able to state their own version of the circumstances of the case. Russia, however, did not provide such an opportunity. The Russian side was not provided with samples of the poison, which was allegedly used, its representatives were not given timely opportunity to see victims who are Russian citizens. There is a manifestation of double standards and pre-programmed prejudices. What is happening is much more reminiscent of not retribution, but a pre-designed strategy of Russia's isolation.

Anglo-Saxon tandem always resorts to accusations of using chemical weapons, hoping to achieve the isolation of a state. This was the case during the administration of the US President George W. Bush, accusing the Iraqi authorities of developing weapons of mass destruction. Now it is already known that this was not even an error, but a deliberate lie. A similar statement was made in due time by Barack Obama in relation to Syrian President Bashar Assad.

Probably, whenever the West begins to talk about the use of chemical weapons, they expect to generate fear and the willingness of society to increase the military budget. Let's remember what the current owner of the White House is not tired of admonishing his European colleagues since the election campaign — ‘junior partners' are obliged to pay for their own defense. Coupled with anti-Russian hysteria, supported, among other things, by the «Fiddles», this means first and foremost the increase in military spending by the rest of NATO countries, and at an abrupt rate to reach a ‘sufficient' level of two percent of national GDP. No one, however, did not promise that after two per cent there will be no new cherished number — say, four per cent … the lion's share of which will go to the same address — in the wallets of American military-industrial corporations. Obviously, there will be no endless increase in spending on NATO, so sooner or later the EU countries will have to make a choice in favor of guns instead of oil — in other words, social security. This is where the strongest human emotion will go-the fear that will convince Europeans that it's better to cut spending on health and education, but to ensure their safety from an ‘aggressive state' planning chemical attacks against almost every European citizen.

You know, your Government's reputation is so bad, it's beyond damaged, basically. Russian Government denying any involvement was pretty much expected anyway, that is what they always do.

Even IF one were to assume that it is all fabricated by the Brits, your Government has lied and lied and lied for so long about so many things, no one takes it seriously anymore. So it is immaterial — whether they deny it or not.
I seriously doubt that the UK Government here would ever do anything to harm the citizens of its own country (some of whom were also victims in those poisonings). It is inconceivable.

What your Government did in Britain — is a terror act against this country and they will pay a very heavy price for it.
All the world leaders are backing Britain in this.
By the way, they are now saying that someone called Glushkov was also poisoned by by the Russian intelligence services.

I didn't understand any of this, but I guess someone from Russia won something in some figure skating competition. Congrats.

Sounds like you are well addicted to figure skating.

Do you like Alan Walker? He is a British composer. I guess his tracks are popular all over the world, Russia included.

Britain is such a musical country, it's unreal. And everything that comes out here - gets picked up all over the world. Music is a huge soft power tool . Shame that Russians are not as good at it as the Brits. I guess the popularity of the English language is a lot to do with it, but it's not just that. Cause British music is more popular than American contemporary stuff. They should sing in English in Russia to raise interest to their contemporary music - rock, pop, etc. When I write about it on the forum - Russian forum users get mortally offended. I don't understand why though. If one wants their stuff to be popular internationally and not just in their own country - that is what they should do. This is what Scandinavians do. How popular do you think ABBA would have been or Nightwish if they were to sing in Swedish or Finnish instead of English? I guess nowhere near.

Talking about music.

Tina S — cover of Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata. She was 17 when she did it (couple of years ago). It's great, on point. Funny enough - Ebolasha introduced me to this piece , he spotted it first. He plays guitar very well himself (both acoustic and electric), was in a rock group earlier in his life and took part in Russian rock festivals, etc. .

More about Brexit — kind of fed up with all the palaver that is going on with Skripals — it doesn't affect me personally in any way anyway.

A couple of videos explaining what is wrong with May's Chequers deal and why it is a no go and a waste of time.

Well, Alexandra was supposed to jump 4 lutz for the first time in history. She stood up on it but she didn't complete all necessary rotations, so it it wasn't a clean 4 lutz. She will try it next time.

But you are right, she won with a huge margin. She even scored more than boys on that day.
