You couldn't make it up.
Visiting some friends in Zhitomir this weekend. We went to church in the morning.
And on the way, what do we come across?!
It's the old "Communists" - but now with a "Socialist" branding. The old old dedushkas - granddads - who held positions of power in the days of the Soviet Union - gathering to remember the "good old days" - and still wishing for poverty for the rest of the population for centuries to come.

Two photos -

And look here at the average age. 75? Dinosaurs. Soviet dinosaurs. Not many of them left now - celebrating May 01.

And contrast this bunch of 30 odd pensioners with the church -
Outside people leave their paschas to be blest - and any other food also. Eggs. Some even with sausage!
To my right there were more young people. This photo doesn't show the average age too well. But I would say about 35.
Apologies for the two "backside" views Rolling Eyes

And inside the church you could hear the communist nutters with their megaphone denouncing the government -
"Yatseniuk is gone, but Groisman is just as bad"....

Christos Voskres!

According Mityushkinoyi flowers are thrown into the machine directly into the buckets without pouring water and candles cast, not putting out.

When Mityushkina their foreman said that the activists themselves are taken away (the plan was to make it a bridge to the overlap in connection with the planned center in festive procession), he shouted at her, "No!".
An activist of "Solidarity" Denis Yudin tried to take a bridge portrait Nemtsov, but people in the form Hormostu grabbed his hands and failed to move from the spot.

When the operation was finished, the crowd "hormostivtsiv" attacked Yudin and his vyvolik on the roadway, said Mityushkina.

Putin's thugs trying to erase the memory of the great man.
But the people won't forget.

In the area of ​​ATU 1 soldier killed, 7 wounded. "Hot" at Svetlodarsk
Sunday, May 1, 2016, 12:58
Over the past day in the area of ​​ATO Ukrainian military one killed, another seven injured.
This was at the briefing on May 1 AP spokesman for the ATO Alexander Motuzyanyk.
He said the military killed due to grenade attack near Svetlodarsk reservoir.
"Five soldiers were wounded in the area Avdeevki, two - in Mariupol direction," - said Motuzyanyk.
"In Donetsk area number of enemy attacks compared with the previous day increased. Mortars militants used once - near Avdeevka." Industrial zone "remains the hottest point," - said spokesman ATO.
In Lugansk area twice militants violated "quiet mode" - near Trohizbenky.
Also, militants resumed activity near Svetlodarsk reservoir - opened fire from grenade launchers and small arms.
"Unrest was also on the northern outskirts of occupied Gorlovki, in particular and Zaitseva Mayorsku" - said Motuzyanyk.
.....Mayor Trukhanov (and City Hall) have aroused their ire after entirely inappropriate construction schemes on the historic Fransuski Boulevard, numerous secretive departmental meetings with no public input into decision making, abhorrent, (and in defiance of local ordnance), inconsiderate construction in the historic city centre, the usual graft and inept use of the city budget, and notwithstanding the 20 (or more) offshore companies the Panama Papers linked to the Trukhanov name, together with his (alleged) holding a Russian passport.
As stated in that entry, the weather gets warmer and the 24/7 protests far easier to endure than was the case for the far cooler and wetter weather during the prosecutor protests.
The problem for Mayor Trukhanov therefore is that the protests are not about to disappear quickly.
Having already employed the Homo Sovieticus modus operandi of ignore, deny, deflect/distract to no avail, the entry stated – “The Homo Sovieticus doctrine regarding steps for further escalation are likely to make matters worse rather than better….”.....

Reccomended. Quite a long, but not super long, article.

Two years ago, Ukraine was also weak and exhausted, but now it is as if resurrected. And the victorious march of the Christian faith began after his resurrection, and sure progress Ukraine in the future unfolding before our eyes with you.

Are all heard singing in the church today, "trampling death by death"? Easter - a day of victory over death.
Lord had risen and we have opened the way to eternal life. He established the inevitable triumph of good over evil. This we witness each other when we say: "Christ is risen!". And the answer: "He is risen indeed!".
On this solemn day of Easter I congratulate all and wish peace, prosperity, unity and grace to our country.
Christ is Risen!
