After years of glowing, uncritical coverage of StopFake (their crusade agains *RUSSIAN DISINFORMATION* demands nothing but complete suspension of disbelief) the truth about their unethical practices, to put it mildly, and unapologetic pro-government bias is finally acknowledged:

That's an expensive holiday! Am only asking out of curiosity. Made the trip in 2014. I hope the bridge has improved since then!

My passport is about 80% Russian exit & entry stamps, half of them illegible, without looking very carefully. I doubt Georgians would look that closely tbh.

How would Tbilisi know you have been? When I went to Abkhazia they didn't stamp me (although I did enter from Georgia, because I was in Poti before it).

I noticed said he applied to enter via Georgia. Is it easier if you enter via Russia?

Trying to imagine the reaction if his name was Mischa, a teacher from Moscow who came to America just to canvass for Bernie. would combust. Live on air.

In another life, Julia Ioffe would have been very successful and happy pumping out propaganda for Putin and his oligarchs on Russian state TV. So shameless and gross.

For some context on the differing scale of the demographic situations facing Russia and Ukraine: A greater number of Ukrainians asked for Russian citizenship (1.5 million) between 2013-2018 than the total amount of Russians who have left their country since the year 2000.

If "this is Chris Steele," why is the letter signed by an Arthur Snell?

When I hear "IRA," in this context, I imagine a load of computer nerds, dressed in balaclavas, singing Irish rebel songs while sh*tposting about Hillary.

Exactly. They haven't a clue, because they don't want to have a clue. RT, as you know, is a *very* broad church.

But that's what they do. Remember the intelligence report a few years ago which was 2/3rds about RT? I'm very sure Kremlin favors Bloomberg, for reasons outlined above. But RT America staff aren't centrists, so they lean towards Bernie or Trump. It's a different dynamic

As you know, the reason Bernie gets some love from RT is that there are loads of American leftists working at RT. I've never had anyone from the Kremlin tell me what to write, or say, have you?

Traditional British chili nachos? There's an Irish pub in Krasnodar which sells "Galway Bay Pork and Sauerkraut." I think they mean Bacon and Cabbage, but not sure why they think it comes from the sea. ))

Six years after the western-backed "Maidan," Ukraine is heading for a demographic disaster. Millions have left, 3 million to Russia alone, plus a similar amount to Poland. Now, the death rate is almost twice the birth rate. Kiev hasn't conducted a census for 19 years.

If James Joyce were around today, he might write "Good puzzle would be cross Moscow without passing an (Irish) pub." They are springing up everywhere. Passed shedloads walking around town today. Here are just three: Sean O'Neill, Connolly Station & Paddy's.

By contrast, Bernie has been forced to take a hawkish stance on Russia, and any concessions he would make would be bounced on (due to his one-time sympathy for the USSR). Trump is totally compromised by the RussiaGate hoax, so he basically can't do any deals with Kremlin.
