    Hope, whoever is asking got the answer.
    For those who think I am joking, refer to Forbes list of powerful people.

    Vladimir Putin Rage


    Putin tells Oleg Deripaska, "Give me my pen back!" Classic!

    Didn't know he was a teetotaler, though I think at public functions he does consume alcohol as a social formality.

    Anyway, would I be wrong in saying the Putin is the present day Nevski or Pozharski (who was given the title "saviour of motherland")

    And somebody here on post #25 suggests that we read Masha Gessen: that ugly jewess who is a lesbian and who wants to destroy the institution of marriage (her own words) and yet is/was married to two women at different points of time. She also adopted children; so much for destroying marriage. Also she says her own brother fucked her second wife and spawned a kid out of that.. Yup, sounds totally fucked up.

    @Razor, I think I did not read the post you are referring to. Good that I did not read it.

    Pozharski? Hmmm, basicaly his name is Flame-ski. Pozhar means flame in Russian, I think. Need to read up on him. He kicked the false Tsars back to Polska, didn't he?

    Yup, "time of troubles."

    Basically, there is no deep connection. I'm just saying that they (nevski,pozharski) are superficially similar to putin because they both saved russia from a lot of troubles/existential crisis.

    Just read in Wiki that his family property burned to the ground, so he took the name Pozharsky. In this picture (painting) of his, he looks like carrying the flag of the USSR.

    The flag of Penza Oblast looks like the Hezbollah Flag.

    I don't see any region's flag matching it. See list here.

    Yeah, you are right. That is the Pozharsky's banner.

    Yeah. By "similar to Penza", I meant the design/face etc on it, not the color.
    I didn't pay much attention to the colour, I guess. :D

    Oh, he maybe a vampire too. Lets take it further. How about Dracula?

    Is Vlad a vampire? Conspiracy theorists go nuts over pictures that suggest Putin hasn't changed his appearance in 100 years
