On Saturday, December 25, 2021, on Catholic Christmas and the anniversary of the collapse of the USSR, projections of the USSR flag and the inscription “Uncle Sam, Merry Christmas! 30 years ago you had a wonderful present. " It went on to say that "there will be no more gifts."



On the footage of the video, you can see the inscriptions "Uncle Sam, Merry Christmas!", "30 years ago you had a wonderful present!" and "December 25, 1991", as well as a fragment from the speech of the President of the USSR Mikhail Gorbachev. Then on the building appears the inscription "But there will be no more gifts!", The image of the Crimea, the bridge that leads to the peninsula and the Soviet flag. They are followed by footage mentioning the 2014 Sochi Olympics, the Russian Angara-A5 launch vehicle, the Akademik Lomonosov floating nuclear power plant, and the FIFA World Cup. The action ended with the phrase "Great Russia is reborn!"

The video "congratulations" appeared on the YouTube channel of the art group "Re:ванш" (the name can be translated into English as "Revenge"), which organized the light projection.

Thank you.

Do you want to know what I think Russia's strength is?
10-20 years ago cyberwar was all the rage. The birth of the war on opinion with social media.
And Russia as of now totally kicked ass in that department. Not with one large overfunded behemoth of a gov agency but with individual ingenuity and little clubs with gov incentives.
It's quite fascinating how it doesn't work with the old capitalism vs planned economy narrative in mind. One would expect the opposite.

Indeed interesting times we're living in.
If I'd be the oracle of Russia my advice would be keep on with that modus operandi it's a winner.
And provocations like these go well with it. Egg and Caviar.
Because let's face it in an all out without nuclear the US wins. But strategically and in the public perception they appear weaker.

Just what popped in my head while reading your OP

Hey! This is an action by one of the public art groups, of which there are a huge number in Russia. This is how they express their own opinion, and, perhaps, protest against such a violation of Russian laws by the US government,

In Russia no one really knows where propaganda originates, or should I say we all know where propaganda like this originates. Moscow's propaganda arm is so legendary, they get the credit regardless. It's been around so long it operates from muscle memory alone.

No worries our government does basically the same thing. They just aren't as sophisticated, intricate, or as experienced as you guys.

Besides don't believe everything you read on the internet or a building...

that's all I got this early in the morning

I didn’t know that the main Russian propagandist, judging by the photo that I posted, was the US Embassy in Moscow)))
By the way, at this American action, which directly violates the laws of Russia, the press secretary of Russian President Vladimir Putin Dmitry Peskov noted that any manifestations of propaganda of non-traditional sexual minorities under Russian law are unacceptable. And nothing more.

Really hanging a flag on a building?

this isn't the worse violation of either countries laws, either country has had this week. This is a tempest in a teacup, regardless of who uses it now.

It's not about which violation of the law is better or worse. In any case, this is a violation of the law. In this case, this is a demonstrative violation of the law of the host country. And it only triggered an art action, although in other countries it can be viewed as a "casus belli" - a reason to declare war.
And who is the biggest provocateur here?

Ah it's the old who yelled the loudest or who yelled first. To me, it's both just yelling...

Again in our history, and I ask knowing you obviously know more than I, where would this provocation rank in the degree of severity? With say #10 being parking both our nuclear missiles within a hundred miles of each other.

and I say all of this knowledge not only is Biden domestically inept but there is also no faith in his international diplomacy skills either.

Russia has been the biggest provocateur for a few years now , I can understand Putin's fears about NATO's move Eastwards and think he has a point but that doesn't excuse Russia's actions over the last few years.

As for this being an unsanctioned art installation , I find that difficult to believe.




In this case, this is a demonstrative violation of the law of the host country.

Embassies are the sovereign territory of the country they belong to so the host country does not have jurisdiction on what happens inside them or what flag is attached to them.

I can't tell what their message is by the rainbow pride flag (im assuming). That the U.S. is gay? Or trolling both the u.s. and russia by hanging a pride flag which goes against russian mainstream ideals.

Sorry, I didn't know you were gay, and Russian laws prohibiting public display and propaganda of your unconventional relationship insult you. In Russia, it is much simpler about it - either there is a violation of the law, or it is not. Moreover, it is difficult for us to figure out which of your more than 40 sexual orientations and genders, our laws offend, and which do not.
Don't be offended, it's just that we Russians are not as democratic, progressive and creative as you are. We bears are forgivable.

No need for apologies I'm not gay , I'm just a guy who doesn't get offended by silly flags or people who live their life differently to me , guess you're a guy who thinks he'll catch gay from a flag or people who are gay.

No need to make excuses. I am tolerant of people like you. But if you violate the laws of Russia in Russia, then you will also be tolerantly prosecuted.
Understand that you are gay in Russia is not a crime. It is a crime to violate Russian laws.

I wish Russia and her people the best on Christmas. I think the time to be adversarial with each other has long passed. This display bodes nothing worth showing at this point. Both countries are too great an asset to the other and yet respectively riddled with internal problems to bother with these kinds of spats. We need to move forward together as leaders in science and technology against communism, stop our economic conquests otherwise, and focus on what really matters. Advancing the human race and the sanctity of individual thought and self reliance is much more pressing now than dredging up old quarrels. Surely both countries have flawed ideologies in practice, especially such practice, but our people share a great deal in regard to primary goals of theory and ideology otherwise. We both want to advance into the future free from the pitfalls of consolidations of power, free from having minds outside the four walls of our homes sway so heavily the way things work within them, and free from having our countrymen's lives wasted for what is in truth mere deception. Falling prey to the agitation of past events will do us no good in that regard. Time for us both to move on, hopefully together.

I would like to inform you that the American Embassy in Moscow is located in the very center of the city on Novinsky Boulevard. There are always a lot of walking tourists, including children. In order not to prosecute the US government, Russia can act very tolerantly - just fence the embassy with a huge high wall so that people and children walking along the boulevard do not see things that violate Russian laws and traumatize Russian children.
And since the extraterritoriality of the embassy ends one meter from the wall of the building, the embassy employees from behind the wall will not only not see the sun, but also daylight in general.
But there is also a radical solution - simply to confiscate the building, as the United States did with Russian diplomatic property. Which do you prefer?

Russian children can be traumatized by a rainbow flag ?
Best put up that wall then , think of the children !

Are you sure you're not an American Trump supporter pretending to be a RussianTroll ?

The Russians themselves decide what to do for the Russians. Moreover, only their parents decide what to do for Russian children. You are an Englishman, but you speak on behalf of the United States. From this I conclude that you consider the United States a colony of Great Britain.
By the way, I support Trump in many ways and believe that only he is able to keep America from catastrophe and disintegration.
