Chavez’s Body To Be Permanently Displayed, Venezuela’s Vice President Says

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on March 8, 2013

CARACAS, Venezuela — Venezuela’s acting president says Hugo Chavez’s embalmed body will be permanently displayed in a glass casket so that “his people will always have him.”

Vice President Nicolas Maduro says the remains will be put on permanent display at the Museum of the Revolution, close to the presidential palace where Chavez ruled for 14 years. Maduro says the president will lie in state first for at least another seven days.

A state funeral for Chavez attended by some 33 heads of government is scheduled to begin Friday morning. Tens of thousands have already filed past his glass-topped casket at a military academy following a seven-hour procession on Tuesday which took his body from the hospital where he died.

Other world leaders whose bodies are on display

World leaders whose bodies have been preserved and put on perpetual display, as Venezuela’s government plans to do with Hugo Chavez:

VLADIMIR LENIN: Body of Soviet Union’s founder has been displayed since January 1924 in a mausoleum at Red Square. His tomb is one of Moscow’s most famous symbols and Communists consider it almost a shrine. The embalmment for display is considered the model for subsequent Communist world leaders put on exhibit.

THE PEOPLE VS. PUTIN

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on June 12, 2012

MOSCOW — Tens of thousands of Russians flooded Moscow’s tree-lined boulevards Tuesday in the first massive protest against President Vladimir Putin’s rule since his inauguration in May – a rally that came even as police interrogated key opposition leaders.

Since embarking on his third presidential term, Putin has taken a stern stance toward the opposition, including signing a repressive new bill last week introducing heavy penalties for taking part in unauthorized rallies.

Police on Monday searched opposition leaders’ apartments, carting away computers, cellphones and other personal items. They also demanded that opposition leaders come in for questioning Tuesday just an hour before the rally began – widely seen as a crude attempt by the government to scare the protesters.

Britain Used A Fake Rock To Spy On Russians

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on January 19, 2012

A former UK government official has admitted Britain was behind a plot to spy on Russians with a device hidden in a fake rock, it emerged today.

Russia made the allegations in January 2006, but they were not publicly accepted by the UK before now.

Jonathan Powell, then prime minister Tony Blair’s chief of staff, told a BBC documentary: “The spy rock was embarrassing.

“They had us bang to rights. Clearly they had known about it for some time and had been saving it up for a political purpose.”

Six years ago, Russian state television broadcast a film claiming British agents had hidden a sophisticated transmitter inside a fake rock which was left on a Moscow street.

Embassy officials then allegedly downloaded classified data from the transmitter using palm-top computers.

The Russian security service, the FSB, linked the rock with claims that British security services were making covert payments to pro-democracy and human rights groups. Read the rest of this entry »

‘For fair elections’: Tens of thousands at Moscow biggest protest (VIDEO, PHOTOS)

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on December 24, 2011

Just two weeks after the Russian capital saw its biggest opposition rally in nearly twenty years, Russians unhappy with the results of the December 4 parliamentary elections have gathered once again.

But this time, it’s in even bigger numbers, with the hopes that their collective voice will be heard. Protest organizers claim up to 120,000 people have gathered for the rally. Police, however, put the number of demonstrators at about 29,000. They are coming together to protest against vote fraud – and to demand a new ballot.

This time around, the rally is being held on Akademika Sakharova Boulevard, with nearby streets closed off to traffic. Police have refrained from calling in reinforcements from the Defense Ministry, but are maintaining a presence at the rally; metal detectors and barriers have been set in advance.

RT’s crew at the scene say the police on duty are friendly and polite, a fact which has also been stressed by human right activists at the rally.

Thirty people are scheduled to speak, including actors, journalists, musicians, politicians and businessmen. But recent polls show that most of the people who attend the rally aren’t interested in being addressed by the politicos and opposition party leaders – they are coming to hear public figures and social activists like TV anchor Leonid Parfenov and blogger Aleksey Navalny, who have already taken the floor.

Putin officially named as candidate for 2012 presidential vote

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 27, 2011

At a pompous event at Moscow’s Luzhniki Arena on Sunday, the pro-Kremlin United Russia party officially named its leader Vladimir Putin, Russia’s powerful prime minister, as its candidate for the March 2012 presidential elections.

All 614 delegates from United Russia and Putin’s All-Russia People’s Front movement who took part in the vote during a party congress at Luzhniki unanimously backed Putin’s candidacy.

Some 11,000 Putin supporters gathered at the congress, held a week before December 4 parliamentary elections, to witness the official start of what is likely to become their leader’s triumphant return to the Kremlin after four years as prime minister.

A storm of standing ovation welcomed the announcement of the vote result as Putin made his way to the dais to thank his supporters.

“My all life, without exaggeration, was devoted to serving our Fatherland,” he said in his speech, broadcast live by Russian state television channels.

“Our motto is ‘Never look back!’ Thank you… We will win together,” he added as President Dmitry Medvedev joined him on stage.

Tricolor national flags and dark-blue banners with a picture of a white bear, United Russia’s symbol, waved over Luzhniki Arena’s crowded grandstands as the prime minister’s supporters chanted “Putin” and “Russia” in an outburst of patriotic sentiment. Read the rest of this entry »

FBI releases surveillance tapes of sexy Russian spy Chapman

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on November 1, 2011

The FBI on Monday released a trove of declassified documents, videos and picturesfeaturing Russia’s undercover femme fatale Anna Chapman and other members of a Russian spy ring busted last year.

The FBI said it had collected the materials during its decade-long Ghost Stories investigation into the activities of 10 Russian spooks who were arrested in June 2010 and within a month deported home in what became the biggest Russian-U.S. spy swap deal since the end of the Cold War.

In one video, a modestly dressed Chapman, now a TV host, a senior member of the ruling United Russia party, and sometimes a lingerie model in Russia, meets up with an undercover FBI agent posing as a government official in a New York coffee shop.

Another video shows Chapman browsing around a department store while a Russian government official is filmed waiting for her on the street outside. By eavesdropping, the FBI showed that there was a kind of electronic communication between them. Read the rest of this entry »

Scientists ‘95% Sure’ Bigfoot Lives in Russian Tundra

Posted by Ram Kumar Shrestha on October 12, 2011

By Joe Jackson

Scientists and yeti enthusiasts believe there may finally be solid evidence that the apelike creature roams the vast Siberian tundra, reports the Guardian.

A team of a dozen-plus experts from as far afield as Canada and Sweden have proclaimed themselves 95% certain of the mythical animal’s existence after a daylong conference in the town of Tashtagol in the Kemerovo region, some 2,000 miles east of Moscow. In recent years, locals there have reported sightings of the yeti, also known as the abominable snowman.(See a list of the top 10 famous mysterious monsters.)

The Kemerovo government announced on Oct. 10 that a two-day expedition the previous weekend to the region’s Azassky cave and Karatag peak “collected irrefutable evidence” of yetis’ existence on the wintry plateau.

“Conference participants came to the conclusion that the artifacts found give 95% evidence of the habitation of the ‘snow man’ on Kemerovo region territory,” read a statement. “In one of the detected tracks, Russian scientist Anatoly Fokin noted several hairs that might belong to the yeti,” it added. The group also discovered footprints, a presumed bed and various other markers. Read the rest of this entry »
