Greetings, Comrades! I honestly didn’t want to make an episode like this, but the recent escalation hit me hard. As you know, I reported from Donbass at one point, so it’s quite hard imagining everything going up in flames again. Let’s hope it doesn’t happen. But…for now, I’m forced to tell you why it just might. Support this show http://supporter.…
 
Greetings, Comrades! This episode is a current events digest about the weirdest events that happened in relation to Russia in the past month. And hey, this time, we even got a theme – it’s all about lies, criminal activities and censorship, all tied together in a story resembling a psychological struggle anime like Kaiji or Liar Game. Enjoy! Suppor…
 
Greetings, Comrades! Today’s episode is all about the BT tanks and the insane, neo-pagan, kind-of-a-bolshevik madman, Red Army Marshall who was behind their introduction in the USSR military forces. Spoilers: He was shot by Stalin in a show trial, but not because of Perun. Perun plays a huge part in this. Enjoy this surprisingly weird story, Comrad…
 
Greetings, Comrades! As I’m still on the farm, I decided to make an animal-related episode. And it turned very dark, very quickly.

Greetings, Comrades! This time, we go back to people’s stories time, and, I’m happy to announce that this is the last ep recorded on the Kalvis’s PC, so we should be back to normal soon.

Greetings, Comrades! Today is Latvia’s Independence Day! The first time one, happened right after WW1.

Greetings, Comrades! Our page is back online, after the attack…and we’re back too, after our sore throat. Navalny’s having it worse.

Greetings, comrades! So, that voting thing passed. I want to go back to Siberial colonisation. But I asked online, on socilal media, do you really NEED an episode on the utter amd complete nonsense that just happened…and the answer was “No, but we need You to tell us about it”. And I am telling you about the ultimate farce in election rigging that …

Greetings, Comrades! Obviously, I wasn’t going to tackle all of Russian Alaska in one episode. Because the subject is so huge, that it involves ALL of Russian Empire’s colonial policy. So, for this reason, have one of the darkest ep’s on the show, about how and why I’m not gonna use any Soviet sources in these series. And I also try to give voices …
 
Greetings, Comrades! This episode is another topical one, but that’s because I had intended to do my Latvian episode, but Delfi, the hosting site cancelled all indie podcasts there. Oh well. Anyhow, this is news, because I was nervous and also a Russian National-Bolshevik, which is basically a Pro-Putin, Pro-Stalin Neo-Nazi who’s funded by Russia, …
 
Greetings, Comrades! The author’s family, turns out, wasn’t happy about our show. They forbade me to use their matherials…so I brought another KGB spy story for you this time.

Greetings, Comrades! This episode has everything. Protests, rioting, conspiracy theories, warmongering, hatred of america, absolute mad lads from Russian GosDuma…everything.

Greetings, Comrades! Some episodes make me feel bad – but for various reasons. Some have awful subject matters, some…like this one, was created from a source so awful and incoherent – even though the subject matter is really interesting – that making a coherent narrative was just a massive pain in the backside. Oh, and we don’t even get to the boat…
 
Greetings, Comrades! Boat is coming. Meanwhile, we take a look at how to not to run a country. If it’s being run at this point. It’s all a tad bit weird.
