Who knows what the director will become…. The question that bounces on independent information sites, accompanied by a disclaimer that makes it mandatory by law, reminding everyone that we are foreign clients, has a reason to exist.
L ‘Happened at Luzhniki Stadium To celebrate the eighth anniversary of Russia’s annexation of Crimea we will also remember him The strange interruption of Vladimir Putin’s speech.
But how, having gathered a hundred thousand and more, carefully prepared, to silence those who claim that there is no such great support for the conquest, and all bypass at the most important moment, the speech of the president?
technical issue Immediately stated Dmitry Peskov, spokesman for the Kremlin. or sabotage Alexei Navalny, the first imprisoned and prosecuted defector, said. What everyone thought. But There is no evidence.
