More charming news from the Supah Powah, which is trying hard to frighten its already weary, jittery people into total submission while also “sending the west a firm message.”

Quoting regime pipe organ Izvestia, RBC “reports” that if martial law is declared, the Defense Ministry could mobilize a number of companies regardless of their ownership structure.  The rules for mobilization were amended after the Caucasus 2016 military exercises. The rules apply to private bakeries, tailors, agricultural holdings, repair services, and logistics companies.

The New Life, or, The Shining Path

"Public Charity Organization The New life. We Are Ready to Help People in Life's Difficult Situations." One of literally thousands of dubious business cards, offering help to the unemployed, penniless and otherwise unfortunate, stuck in every nook and cranny in central Petersburg.
“Public Charity Organization The New life. We Are Ready to Help People in Life’s Difficult Situations.” One of the literally thousands of dubious business cards, offering help or employment to the unemployed, penniless, and otherwise unfortunate, stuck, crammed, and scotch-taped in every nook and cranny in central Petersburg in recent weeks.

More good news from the Supah Powah, as reported by RBC earlier today. Russian companies owe their employees 3.66 billion rubles [approx. 5.2 million euros]. By the beginning of October, wage arrears had increased by 3.6% compared to the previous month. This has not happened since April. 66,000 people are waiting for their money.
