— why do you think he is nostalgic about Stalin times?
— why? — because he lacks imagination!
— imagination?
— yes. he is able to imagine himself standing on mavzolei in a hat, but he is unable to imagine himself in gulag. however i can imagine him at both places. (:

բնօրինակ սփիւռքում(եւ մեկնաբանութիւննե՞ր)

one of my colleagues told how he was poisoning ants at his “dacha”. i said:

— i’ve read a story about it by Levon Khechoian.
— who is he?
— he recently died, i guess he grown up in the village. he was writing sometimes mystic stories, very often about cruelty, and i believe he has a line about betrayal in almost every his work.
— well, I don’t consider killing ants as a cruelty. — he said.
— why?
— yes, when I was a child, we were killing a lot of them. i was doing carpet bombings, used burning plastic bottles, bulldozed their anthills with my feet, and was making crystal coffins. do you know what’s that?
— no.
— when you put a glass over ant and hit it with the rock.
here chief said:
— well, as we can see, memory about medieval inquisition is still alive.
— yes, — he said proudly, — I was probably one of them in my former lives.

needless to say, he also adores and respects Putin and Stalin, he’s homophobic, and he’s a sexist. Exactly as RAW wrote.

System of a Down vocalist Serj Tankian has addressed the recent tensions along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border

serj tankian

“Until there is a lasting peace agreement on Nagorno-Karabagh, both Armenia and Azerbaijan will be both militarily and financially constrained and fall deeper into corruptive political practices subservient to one superpower or another. Karabagh, called Artsakh in Armenian, has been an enclave with a majority population of Armenians given to Azerbaijan by Stalin.

“I’ve been to Artsakh on a visit to Armenia years ago and have to say that the people living there are gracious, generous, kind and deserve peace and prosperity as we all do,” reads his post.

it says: “to comrade Stalin. In order to clean Armenia from more anti-soviet elements, comrade Mikoian is asking to execute 700 more people. I am asking to execute 1500 people more, overall 2000”.

So, ironically, Mikoian, who also responsible for a lot of deaths, part of soviet mincing-machine, is now a successful sausage brend in Russia.

Agadamov: Меня, как человека много лет проработавшего в рекламе и занимавшегося брендингом, всегда интересовало как в России существуют и развиваются бренды. Москвичам хорошо известен Микояновский мясокомбинат и его марка Микоян (http://agrobk.ru/wp-content/uploads/myasokombinat-mikoyanovskiy.jpg). Несколько позиций у марки входят в премиальный сегмент и продаются в дорогих сетях ритейла. Я даже как-то рассказывал коллегам в Норвегии историю этого человека и бренда — все были поражены. В самом деле, имя одного из организаторов сталинской мясорубки, в которой погибли миллионы людей, теперь в России — одна из самых узнаваемых колбасных торговых марок. Какая злая ирония судьбы и как коротка наша память.

P.S. Вспомните эту запись, когда в следующий раз попросите «нарезать вам триста грамм микояновской докторской».
