Anton Orekh’s remark at the Echo Moskvy
Everybody wonders about Navalny why he is not in prison? He is convicted in this and that and many more. Now he stills forest, now – parcels, then he makes another mess. However, spans are not natural, relative spans in one word. So he happens to be some kind of conventional recidivist. Multiple quasi-prisoner. Such situation perplexes the state as well as far as it can be seen. And this is why it was decided to convict Navalny in retail.

A well-meaning initiative encouraging “gender neutrality” this Christmas could actually be breeding the next generation of serial killers, writes Jack Marx.
There are those who believe the world would become a better place if only men and women were indistinguishable from each other. More men in frocks and more women in wife-beaters would see domestic violence rates drop, glass ceilings shattered, wages at parity and fewer sad widows disembarking the Titanic. That’s the thinking.
Our pursuit of such an idyllic future will involve a few harsh sacrifices, they say — the letting go of some of those gender-stereotypical roles that the brainwashed among us have actually come to enjoy. The good news is change begins in the cradle, so it’s not we who’ll be martyred on the altar of gender neutrality, but our kids.
So, the historical crossroad has put the USA to a quality new way of development – the way it will follow its leader during 4 years, the leader whose name was not so sound in the political world at least.
