Red Army Horses (1941-1945) by Timur Muminov [Тимур Муминов] (13.8.2019) 

The time of severe trials proved the expediency of organizing a special fund of selected horse stock. In total, about three million horses came from the national economy to the front. Even more of them would be needed if, thanks to a well-organized military Veterinary Service, the vast majority of slightly wounded and sick animals did not return to Service – but were returned to the Home-Front to continue their vital patriotic services. However, more than a million uncomplaining Soviet War-Horse died in the anti-fascist war! Already, by 1942, the USSR was short of horses – with the shortfall being met by purchases from its allies in Mongolia!

Russia: A Conundrum for Modern Religionists! (8.5.2022)

After the transition to capitalism in 1991, the standard of care throughout Russia dropped significantly, and the resurgence of religion opened-up the existing care-homes to exploitation by religious groups who offered to donate a chair or a table in return for general and unbridled access to the residents! It is common (on the modern Russian internet), for religious groups to link the economic deficiencies of the capitalist system to a general lack of belief in a sky-fairy (and the associated theology)! Such religionists insanely refer to the elderly residents as being ‘brought-up in a godless age’ and that this explains their ‘poverty’ and their habit of ‘sitting in the day-room and watching TV’! This is indicative of the evils associated with religion and exploitation such deluded systems inflict upon humanity in the name of a non-existent god-entity!  

Visit: St Tiggywinkles Wildlife Hospital (14.4.2022)

Indeed, St Tiggywinkles is premised upon the origin foundation of the British ‘National Health Service’ (founded in 1948), which has provided free at the point of us medical care for the human population. Although paid for through collective taxation – since 1979 (a year after St Tiggywinles was Founded) the NHS has been steadily ‘privatised’ step by step – and has become a third-rate and shambolic ‘ghost’ of what it once was! At least St Tiggywinkles has stayed true to the founding principles of its excellent hospital!
