Elena who stays in Egypt now has been practicing yoga for a long time. It was scary to see what she was doing with the baby who could be easily mistaken for a doll.

  1. The Russians eat like real soldiers, the Americans like spoiled brats. The Roman legion conquered most of the world eating just porridge (from barley I think).

    • Why not feed soldiers the best food possible? Russia produces a great variety of foods, I am sure. It can also afford to import food, as well. The pictures you saw of US troops eating were from a holiday meal in the war zone. Really doesn’t matter…US military food is very good, and the troops get plenty of it. I would say Russian soldiers deserve the same, wouldn’t you?

    • What you see there is on a well established and supplied base. Soldiers at other places aren’t so lucky. I was in the navy in the Mediterranean. The food on my ship was nasty. One time they tried to feed us steaks packed in 1971. It was 1984 when they landed on our trays. Frozen for 13 years. The sea gulls wouldn’t eat them. You couldn’t cut them with a knife and they had a rainbow sheen on them when you held them up in the light. The rest of it wasn’t much better, half the food that ship brought on board went right where it belonged, in the garbage.

      • When I was serving in Buryatia a few years ago we were eating food from deep underground permafrost storage. We once had prepared a cow carcass with ‘1954’ mark on it. And to be honest, since then I’ve never seen meat more tasty than that. They feed cattle with chemicals these days.

      • Well, “spoiled brats” was too harsh. But I was just pointing out that the ideal soldier is,or was, one that performed on a very spartan diet.

    • Ahem. How would you know what a “real” soldier is anyways? I think what you were trying to say, is that the American Military is the only professional military on the planet. Look up that term, before you argue. Professional military = privatization of war = almost nonstop conflict for $$$. The difference between using conscripts and volunteers. Check it out, that is the difference in the pictures.

    • I agree the baby is being abused. And the conditions at the hospital are utterly disgusting. It’s a wonder any patient ever recovers there.

  2. A lot of that disparity is due not only to national wealth, but a lack of corruption. US pay a lot of taxes compulsorily, and there is clear official accountability. Once Russia catches up with such ethics, its people too will be as wealthy.
