        • Russia's Last Independent TV Channel

          As the fascists from the Kremlin are closing in, the kids who are running Russia's last independent TV station are forced into some kind of a garage just to keep the station running.

          Moving story.

          Give it a year, and these kids will be shut down too.

            I don't fell a slightest regret about them and they tried very hard to achieve it.

            • I was gonna say you can start your smear campaign now. Accuse those kids of everything, including embezzlement. This is the only thing that Russia does well: smear campaigns. That and threatening with nuclear war.

                I'm not accusing them of something, I'm just saying that I don't feel any sympathy for them. And I don't have to actually. For reasons described above I watch their present misfortunes with a certain feeling of satisfaction.

                • Paranoia overload, because no one who opposes the Antichrist (Putin) can be anything but a saint.

                    Antichrist is supposed to be a genius who will unite the world and eliminate all poverty. Antichrist would not get himself isolated in a corner like a little brat who stole a cookie. Putin has proven to be anything but a genius. He is making mistakes that are getting worse.

                      I find your idea what the Antichrist is supposed to be rather entertaining, but that's beside the point.

                        It's not my idea, that's what the people who read that stuff believe. I dont read that stuff.

                          What the paranoia? Russia has one remaning station broadcasting news that is not government controlled, it's a garage-operation, and it's about to be discontinued. While in other news the government TV news outlets are going global in a big way, multi-language broadcasts, and certainly the Russian public gets to foot the bill for that privilege.

                          Sure, lets' not go overboard with this — it's akin to the number Berlusconi did on Italian TV-news. In either case, as news-coverage go, the situation is garbage, but while also similarly politically consequential, since there is a similarity between Russian and Italy in that most citizens get their exclusive news coverage from the tube. In both cases the political minders of the news clearly know what they are doing.

                            I remain quite sceptical that they only have one remaining TV station that is not state controlled. Further, Remember Ria Novosti? Despite it being state owned they didn't manage to keep it keeping the government line.

                            What I had in mind is the rather entertaining idea that those who oppose Putin is somehow free of guilt for everything they are accused of. Of course I am not naive enough to believe that some of them don't get jailed for political purposes. But it has become a standard practice for some people who get caught to start screaming that the charges are merely political in nature and in that way get a sanctuary in some "liberal democratic" country.

                              There are about 1 mln criminals in Russian prisons, i wonder why they on the West did not declare them innocent martyrs of evil Putin's regime, exellent PR opportunity. Russians would be happy to hand them to the West together with Khodarkovsky
                              I heard they were not especially happy with Femen and rioting vaginas protesters.
