Mh19_kerry

Secretary of State John Kerry pointed fingers at Russia over the crash of MH17 over Ukraine.

Said Kerry:

"We know from intercepts ... that those are in fact the voices of separatists. And now we have a video showing a launcher moving back through a particular area there out into Russia with at least one missing missile on it....This is the moment of truth for Russia. Russia is supporting these separatists. Russia is arming these separatists. Russia is training these separatists. And Russia has not yet done the things necessary in order to try to bring them under control."

H_clinton

Hillary Clinton sat down with Charlie Rose today and offered her thoughts on the Malaysia Airlines flight that was shot down over Ukraine today, Mediaite reports:

She noted that the Ukrainian government has been quick to blame the crash on “terrorists,” which is “their name for the Russian insurgents.” Clinton agreed that it “probably had to be” Russian insurgents that brought the plane down, but would need forensic evidence to determine that for sure.

“If there is evidence pointing in that direction, the equipment had to come from Russia,” Clinton continued. “There is a great deal of concern that, not only was a civilian plane shot down, but what this means about the continuing conflict in Eastern Ukraine and the role that Russia is playing.”

Russian MP Worries Tiny Nude Guy On Russian Currency Will Turn All Children Gay!

Money

Liberal Democratic Russian Parliament Member Roman Khudyakov recently wrote his country’s Central Bank asking them to change the 100 rouble note because, according to him, it “clearly” shows Apollo’s genitals. As such, Khudyakov says that the “pornographic” bill runs afoul of the country’s ban on exposing minors to "gay propaganda”.

Pink News reports:

[Khudyakov said,] “I submitted a parliamentary request and forwarded it directly to the head of the central bank asking for the banknote to be brought into line with the law protecting children and to remove this Apollo.”

In the letter, he complained that “intimate parts of the body” were visible on the banknote, which he says should have an “18+” rating under the anti-gay law.

Lawyer Pavel Ivchenkov said: “The 100-ruble bill with a picture of Apollo is essentially a print product and can in fact be considered as ‘information of a pornographic nature’.

Pink News goes on to note that “The real statue of the Greek god – at the Bolshoi Theatre in Moscow – was itself censored in 2011, when it was covered up with a fig leaf,” and adds that, “Apollo had many gay lovers, including Hyacinthus and Cyparissus.”

Khudyakov has not taken into account the possibility that Apollo’s microscopic penis on the currency may in fact encourage young women to pursue heterosexuality.


Russian Priest Says World Cup Is A 'Homosexual Abomination' Because of Colorful Shoes: VIDEO

Russian soccer team

Writing in his column on Christian website Russian People’s Line, Russian Orthodox priest Alexander Shumsky has denounced the World Cup as a “homosexual abomination” because of the brightly colored boots worn by players.

Claiming that the boots resemble the “gay rainbow,” Shumsky goes on to say that “wearing pink or blue shoes, [the players] might as well wear women's panties or a bra," reports The Moscow Times.

Also unimpressed with some of the “unthinkable” hairstyles sported by players, Shumsky continues that “the liberal ideology of globalism clearly wants to oppose Christianity with football. Therefore I am glad that the Russian players have failed and, by the grace of God, no longer participate in this homosexual abomination.”

Shumsky’s outburst comes amid allegations of racist and homophobic behavior by fans at World Cup matches and FIFA’s decision to award the 2018 World Cup to Russia despite the country’s implementation of harsh laws against the “promotion of homosexuality.”

Russia played only three matches in the World Cup, none of which they managed to win.
