Russia’s economy is in recession as it languishes under western sanctions and low oil prices. Three million people fell into poverty last year.
But oligarch Mikhail Gutseriev didn’t seem to be feeling the pinch as he shelled out millions ...
The impoverished Ingushetia has the highest unemployment of any region in Russia, and media noted that the wedding probably cost more than the region’s planned expenditures this year on health care and education.
Many social media users were disgusted by the extravagance, with one uploading a video of the elder Gutseriev advising Russians to “start saving on everything”.

But Sergey Lavrov’s clowns can at least try to make it appear as if they are improving the situation at the UN for Russia, ...
People from a grim high-rise building on Smolenskaya Square in Moscow are buying the votes of those UN member states which traditionally abstain on “Ukrainian” resolutions....

This was stated by the Foreign Minister of Great Britain Philip Hammond, reports Reuters.
"We took a step back in the past few months, recorded more and more violations of the ceasefire," - said Hammond.
International observers have warned of increased violence in Eastern Ukraine and the claim that the militants, supported by Russia, turned heavy weapons back on the front line.
Western powers also claim that there are satellite images, videos and other evidence that Russia supplies weapons to militants and that Russian troops involved in the conflict that erupted after the annexation of the Crimea in 2014.
"We must not forget that it was the invasion of the sovereign territory of Ukraine. Russia illegally annexed Crimea in international law. Russia is the aggressor in this conflict," - said Hammond.
