Russia’s Not Retreating, It’s Just Turning 180 Degrees and Marching Forward in a New Direction, Russians Say

Paul Goble

            Staunton, Dec. 26 – Only foreign agents and the rotten West say that Russia is retreating, Russians say. How dare they say anything of the kind! What is in fact happening, Russians point out, is this: under Putin, their country has turned 180 degrees and is now marching forward in a new direction with confidence.

            That is just one of the anecdotes in the latest collection offered by Moscow journalist Tatyana Pushkaryova ( Among the best of the rest are the following:


·       Archaeologists have found a man who came to what is now Great Britain 2000 years ago from the territory of Russia today. They are certain of that origin because his skeleton was clutching a birchbark summons to the military registration office.

·       A Putin aide says Mercedes and BMW will soon cease to exist after they have left Russia. That raises the risk that Germany having broken with Russia over Ukraine will cease to exist as well.

·       The Kremlin’s message to Russians on New Year’s this year is simple: Dear Compatriots! 2024 is coming. Please be understanding.

·       Russians say they survived 2023 and will survive 2024.

·       Given the scandal about a naked party, Russians are now apologizing to one another for taking showers in the altogether.

·       And given all the hullaballoo about propagandizing non-traditional sexual orientations, Russian men who dress up as women for plays and movies are apologizing as well, a sign that Russia will soon face a cultural revolution even more sweeping than the one in China.
