A Russian woman adopted a brown bear born and raised in captivity, and the two have become the very best of friends.
Archie the brown bear and Veronika Dichka like to spend time fishing on the lake in their native Novosibirsk, in southern Siberian, Russia. Veronika rescued Archie from a safari park that was running out of business two years ago and has since kept him as a pet.
“We rescued him from the safari park but can’t release him into the wild as he has lived in captivity his whole life,” Veronika said.
The pair are like any other friends cherishing each other’s company and enjoy their quality time in the water. (H/T – Mike AKA Proof)
Russian women are very tough, so maybe she knows what she is doing. It’s a great story, but I hope Veronika and Archie’s relationship never goes sour.
Meet Anna Baranchuk, a 27-year old rugby player from Russia. Yes, rugby, so you know she can beat the living daylights out of most men on Planet Earth.
Anna Baranchuk (born 18 December 1993) is a rugby sevens player. She was born in Prokopyevsk, Russia. She competed in the women’s tournament at the 2020 Summer Olympics.
Despite Anna’s determination, Russia finished eighth in the final standings. It could be worse; they could have finished twelfth (dead last).

Three members of the Russian air force were killed after their ejection seats suddenly engaged without warning. There is no proof the flight crew had evidence which would put Hillary Clinton in prison.
Three crew have been killed in an accident today involving a Russian Aerospace Forces Tu-22M3 Backfire-C bomber at Shaykovka airbase in the Kaluga region, western Russia. The Russian Ministry of Defense confirmed that the crew lost their lives due to an “abnormal operation” of the ejection seats.
Russia’s state-run media outlet RIA Novosti said the incident occurred while the Tu-22M3 was being prepared for a training flight at Shaykovka, while its counterpart TASS specified that the ejections were initiated when the bombers’ two engines were started on the ground. It remains unclear whether the seats were activated deliberately, or whether the ejection sequence was unintentional. A fourth crew member reportedly survived the accident and was taken to a medical facility, but it’s not known whether they ejected or remained aboard the aircraft.
I’m not about to claim the Russian military is not a threat, but they certainly not the powerhouse they were in the 80’s. There are far too many examples like these lately: ammunition explosions, downed jets, malfunctioning tanks and warships. Their military is in serious trouble.
A Russian gun enthusiast put his newly purchased AK-103 rifle through trials, and he burned through rounds like you wouldn’t believe.
This is a video of a Russian lunatic firing an AK-103 until it catches fire. And then he, uh, proceeds to fire some more. The craziest part is that this was put out by the Kalashnikov Concern, the actual manufacturer of the AK-103. I mean, props to the Russians for risking their employees’ lives for the sake of demonstrating how tough their products are.
I don’t consider myself an overly cautious person, but watching the guy constantly bash the gun to reload because it was jamming due to being on fire gave me anxiety.
The good news is the man can mow down enemies while lighting a fine Cuban cigar.
You can see this amazing(?) feat below the fold…

A Russian man was nearly killed by a suicidal concrete slab last week, because Russia is awful.
While clearing snow from a vehicle in Russia, the owner noticed a massive slab of concrete falling from the building above and narrowly got out of the way in time. When I say massive, I mean massive. Like 100% this guy would be dead if he didn’t have his Russian reflexes with him. Also, what is happening in Russia that giant concrete slabs just fall from the sky?
From what I’ve seen on the Internet they’re already playing life at the max difficultly so it seems excessive to add in randomly falling objects.
This guy doesn’t look like he’s standing in the middle of Volgograd, so I have no idea how a concrete slab plummeted to the ground in the middle of a forest, but hey, Russia.
The short video is below the fold. It is literally pants-wetting…

A Russian nurse was disciplined after she wore lingerie under her see-through protective gear while attending to Wuhan virus patients. Why. Would. You. Discipline. Her?!!
A RUSSIAN nurse faces the sack for only wearing “lingerie” beneath her transparent gown while treating male coronavirus victims.
The unnamed medic, aged in her 20s, told hospital chiefs in the city of Tula that wearing a uniform under her PPE clothing left her feeling “too hot”.
I’m guessing the patients felt warm as well…
After a picture of the woman was shared widely on social media, she was punished for “non-compliance with the requirements for medical clothing.” Her bosses initially said the woman was wearing “lingerie” but later claimed she had a “swimming suit” beneath the gown.
You can see the photo of the nurse at the link; it’s worth your time.
Hillary Clinton, the woman who offered American uranium to Russia, who offered a “Reset Button” to Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov, and who gleefully enlisted Russia to help her win the 2016 presidential election, has now determined Hawaii Representative Tusli Gabbard is a “Russian asset.”
Democratic Hawaii Rep. Tulsi Gabbard fired back at former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton on Friday for calling her an agent of Russia, tweeting that Clinton is the “personification of the rot” that has taken over the Democratic Party.
In a series of tweets, Gabbard slammed Clinton for being the “queen of warmongers” and accused her of using “proxies” to oppose Gabbard’s presidential campaign because the congresswoman wants to pull the U.S. out of endless wars in the Middle East.
“You, the queen of warmongers, embodiment of corruption, and personification of the rot that has sickened the Democratic Party for so long, have finally come out from behind the curtain,” Gabbard wrote. “It’s now clear that this primary is between you and me. Don’t cowardly hide behind your proxies. Join the race directly.”
I’m no fan of Gabbard’s – in my opinion, most of her positions are kooky – but the fact she fought back against this deranged, drunken, stumble-bum earns my respect. Honestly, the notion Clinton is attacking anyone in politics after her abysmal record is truly stupefying.
Sadly, Hillary will never, ever go away.
Americans have been inundated with dozens and dozens of stories regarding social media sites selling its users’ personal information. Bad actors like Facebook, Tinder, and Google gleefully hand over your information to other entities, and there is little recourse.
I guess it could be worse. We could be using social media in a fascist country.
Russia is requiring dating app Tinder to hand over data on its users — including messages — to the national intelligence agencies, part of the country’s widening crackdown on internet freedoms.
It’s amazing how quickly Vladimir Putin turned Russia into a Stalinist paradise. It’s equally amazing how many non-Russians still believe Putin can be trusted.
The communications regulator said Tinder was included on a list of online services operating in Russia that are required to provide user data on demand to Russian authorities, including the FSB security agency.
Tinder, an app where people looking for dates swipe left or right on the profiles of other users to reject or accept them, will have to cooperate with Russian authorities or face being completely blocked in the country. The rule would apply to any user’s data that goes through Russian servers, including messages to other people on the app.
The lesson here is this: either get off social media, or at least familiarize yourself what these companies are doing. There are no privacy rights for Americans any longer, and if you’re victimized, you will never win against these monopolistic tech companies.
A group of prudish Russian citizens complained about a pregame routine where basketball cheerleaders performed a striptease in front a multitude of fans.
I fail to see the problem here.
The women, who were sporting minuscule underwear and platform stilettos, performed before a Russian Basketball Super League match in Saint Petersburg on Sunday.
But the final’s pregame show before the match between Spartak St. Petersburg and Samara caused uproar after numerous fans with children accused the organisers of staging an “inappropriate” striptease performance.
The group of nine began their routine on the ground, seeing the majority of them on all fours. Some of the girls were sporting a nude thong body suit while the rest wore black french underwear and a bra.
Look, your kids are just going to learn all this on the street, anyway. I say sit back, relax, down a few shots of vodka, and enjoy the ride.
While I voted for him in 2012, I have never been a fan of Mitt Romney. In my opinion, he has always been a smarmy weasel who was more comfortable with leftists than conservatives. That said, the flak he received after claiming Russia was America’s biggest geopolitical foe was wholeheartedly undeserved.
Now, one of those leftist hacks has apologized to Romney, albeit seven years later.
Former Secretary of State Madeleine Albright apologized to Mitt Romney on Tuesday for previously mocking his 2012 description of Russia as the country’s top geopolitical foe.
Reporters tweeted Albright offered a mea culpa to now-Sen. Romney (R., Utah), then the 2012 GOP nominee, at a House Intelligence Committee hearing, saying “we underestimated what was going on with Russia.”
Romney’s comment in a CNN interview that Russia was “our No. 1 geopolitical foe” was widely viewed as a gaffe by Democrats and the media. Obama and Vice President Joe Biden mocked his “Cold War” mindset, and then-Sen. John Kerry (D., Mass.) said it was a “preposterous notion.” (H/T – AOSHQ)
This pathetic scrunt knew Romney was correct in 2012, and she magnanimously apologizes seven years later? Go. F**k. Yourself.
