English Russia Daily Report #7 [mall fires, jokes, Vladimir, Stalin]

Posted on April 4, 2018 by tim


And believe it a not TWO different malls caught fires today in Russia.


First a mall in Moscow caught fire, firefighters arrived very fast. However there have been victims here.


Five firefighters got injured and one mall worker died in an ambulance en route to hospital.

And then couple hours later another mall caught fire, now in Neftekamsk city:

A central market of the city in the downtown burn in flames late in the evening. Some malls in Russia work 24×7 so it might had still people inside. No news yet on this one but watch the video above – it’s burning pretty hard.

People are whispering this can’t be a pure coincidence as a few malls caught fire in past couple weeks since the deadly mall fire in Kemerovo which killed tens of people.

Now something else:

Nothing funny just an Orthodox priest on a scooter. People are sort of got used that priests are driving often some luxury cars, as the church is being supported by the state (in  part), so it’s kind of an unusual sight.

Now, another thing. Do you know who was Sasha Grey? (If not please don’t google, she was an adult movies star).



Here is a Maslenitsa party (bliny-crepes party) in one of Russian cities. And one crepe is looking strangely familiar (in fact it’s her face).

Ok moving on to some more pop-culture memes. Did you know a new video game Farcry 5 got released? It’s sort of set in a setting of American midwest, like Montana or something and members of religious sect got whole state under their control and you sort of need to fight your way thru the religious frenzy there.



Russian people made their fantasy of the possible Farcry 5 localization and placed a family of famous Russian religious fundamentalist German on the cover. Look at his son he probably is hoping a sooner demise for all this stuff happening and tired of all this.


Also this German is famous for another crazy thing he did. He owned (or still owns) a network of artisan bakeries (very overpriced breads made strictly by “ancient Russian recipes”). And he was famous for placing “No fags allowed” on his shops (here on photo above he is placing a sign himself). And this Farcry 5 cover also got this sign in small font written.

Ok another joke:

    The first time I heard the word (PERESTROIKA) we were told here in the west that Gorbachev was behind it and it meant a new corporation with the west. Now I read about it and they say it had nothing to do with the west.

      right, it means “rebuilding” “reconstruction” “restructuring” something like that

        And then there was the red reset button, all I ever heard about that was they got the name wrong. Chillary flew to meet some Russian big cheese for photo opp to press some red button. ( I guess it was blue-tooth cause it had no wires).

    Farcry5 foto….there are many tens of thousands of religious fundamentalists in the US….the Amish for example. Mostly they mind their own business but many of their children have been exposed to the outside world and are desperate to leave.

    I use Russian swear words with my Russian friends….they just laugh.
