      Dear Fr. Basil,

      In light of my previous e-mail, here's a link to an article that you can
      post to the various lists:

      http://www.radonezh.ru/new/?ID=3528

      For those who don't speak Russian, it is an article about a service that
      took place in St. Petersburg, Russia, on May 31 at Sts. Peter and Paul
      Church (MP) -- a memorial service "for the hundreds of thousands of Russian
      anti-communists, who, with weapons in their hands, during the Second World
      War, fought against the Stalinist regime."

      Now, it should be clear, that especially in the euphoria now reigning in
      Russia regarding the 60th Anniversary of the "Great Victory" over
      fascism--such a service, commemorating those Russians who fought on
      Hitler's side as part of the Liberation Movement of the People's of
      Russia-- is a remarkable event.

      Fr. George Mitrofanov, who led the service, said in his sermon:

      "Those who were not commemorated and those who were not remembered during
      this time of "victory-demonics" ("pobedobesie") deserve that they be
      remembered now."

      Also present were representatives of the Russian Scout Corps and the
      Russian Imperial Order-Union.

      Such a prayer service, or course, would have been unthinkable just a few
      years ago.

      Yet they say that nothing has changed.

      So--Fr. Basil, go ahead and post it.

      With love in Christ,

      Prot. Alexander Lebedeff

        Dear Father Alexander,

        Russians have been liberated from their national patrimony by a group of mostly jewish oligarchs and Putin has fianlly managed to put one in jail after 6 years on the job, I say he is in cahoots with'em. Russians have also been liberated from free health care, subsidized housing and feeling of security, notice the steep rise in suicide, alcoholism and decline in life expectancy. Least you think I am advocating here for communism of the days past Russian nation is also being liberated of 1.5 million souls annually as we speak. Russians have also been liberated from Ukraine, Kazakhstan and Baltic states. Mind you, this is not some conspiracy ravings but a common facts available in both Russian and US press.

        If You seriously see this as a liberation of Russia you must be one of these ultra right wing free marketeers who believe in predestination for the few to rule and enjoy the fruit of the earth and for the rest to be left on their own to suffer and die cause their wretched condition is already a proof of their sinfullnes.

        As for the service and the statue I say it's just part of general deception and chaos induction that is the most fashionable political management theory at the moment. It's put out there to confuse the few remaining true witnesess ( not that American politics are that much different )

        Respectfully Yours
        Gene T
