Yakima knows his Yookeranians, that's for schure.

I'm sure that all of our readers recognize that “Grotesque and Pondering,” is a google translation of  "Гротеск і Обдумування" by Тростянский (a title that an actual person might have translated as "Scherzo and Reverie" geek ).

Curiously, Khomenko appears to have been a brunette when she played it back in school--and somewhat chunkier:



You can tell that you're in Ukraine by the two bandura players behind Tetiana.

The "Pondering" starts at 2:20.

'Grotesque & Pondering' sounds way better.

We asked Khomenko what are her first priorities when she gets here.

She said Capitol and White house.

Khomenko is clearly looking for ways to "blend in" in Washington DC (I'm not sure this will work Suspect ):



Is that Olya Olefirenko on her right? Shocked I believe it is.

We need to talk about Sergei Gorkov and Vnesheconombank. Also, did we forget to talk about Evgeny Buryakov?

Tim wrote:
The authoritarians of today are also terror managers, and if anything they are rather more creative. Consider the current Russian regime admired by the president. Vladimir Putin not only came to power in an incident that strikingly resembled the Reichstag fire, he then used a series of terror attacks—real, questionable, and fake—to remove obstacles to total power in Russia and to assault democratic neighbors.

When Putin was appointed prime minister by a failing Boris Yeltsin in August 1999, he was an unknown with a nugatory approval rating. The following month, a series of buildings were bombed in Russian cities, apparently by the Russian secret state police. Its officers were arrested by their own colleagues with evidence of their guilt; in another case, the speaker of the Russian Parliament announced an explosion a few days before it took place. Nonetheless, Putin declared a war of revenge against Russia’s Muslim population in Chechnya, promising to pursue the supposed perpetrators and “rub them out in the shithouse.”

The Russian nation rallied; Putin’s approval ratings skyrocketed; the following March he won presidential elections. In 2002, after Russian security forces killed scores of Russian civilians while suppressing a real terrorist attack at a Moscow theater, Putin exploited the occasion to seize control of private television. After a school in Beslan was besieged by terrorists in 2004 (in strange circumstances that suggested a provocation), Putin did away with the position of elected regional governors. Thus, Putin’s rise to power and his elimination of two major institutions—private television and elected regional governorships—were enabled by the management of real, fake, and questionable terrorism.

After Putin returned to the presidency in 2012, Russia introduced terror management into its foreign policy. In its invasion of Ukraine in 2014, Russia transformed units of its own regular army into a terrorist force, removing insignia from uniforms and denying all responsibility for the dreadful suffering they inflicted. In the campaign for the Donbas region of southeastern Ukraine, Russia deployed Chechen irregulars and sent units of its regular army based in Muslim regions to join the invasion. Russia also tried to hack the 2014 Ukrainian presidential election.

In April 2015, Russian hackers took over the transmission of a French television station, pretended to be ISIS, and then broadcast material designed to terrorize France. Russia impersonated a “cybercaliphate” so that the French would fear terror more than they already did. The aim was presumably to drive voters to the far-right National Front, a party financially supported by Russia. After 130 people were killed and 368 injured in the terrorist attacks on Paris of November 2015, the founder of a think tank close to the Kremlin rejoiced that terrorism would drive Europe toward fascism and Russia. Both fake and real Islamic terrorism in Western Europe, in other words, were thought to be in the Russian interest.

In early 2016, Russia manufactured a moment of fake terror in Germany. While bombing Syrian civilians, and thus driving Muslim refugees to Europe, Russia exploited a family drama to instruct Germans that Muslims were rapists of children. The aim, again, seems to have been to destabilize a democratic system and promote the parties of the extreme right.

The previous September, the German government had announced that it would take half a million refugees from the war in Syria. Russia then began a bombing campaign in Syria that targeted civilians. Having provided the refugees, Russia then supplied the narrative. In January 2016, the Russian mass media spread a story that a girl of Russian origin in Germany who had momentarily gone missing had been serially raped by Muslim immigrants. With suspicious alacrity, right-wing organizations in Germany organized protests against the government. When the local police informed the population that no such rape had taken place, Russian media accused them of a cover-up. Even Russian diplomats joined the spectacle.

James Madison nicely made the point that tyranny arises “on some favorable emergency.”

OK, but why are Merkel & Friends trying to break all records when it comes to acceptance of asylum seekers?

They say it's because they feel bad about all that Nazi stuff from before.

Svetlana is starting to suggest that she doesn't think we can play that super-fast Spanish-flamenco Rachmaninov prelude with enough brio.
