Moscow. — In the newly opened restaurant and night club “Arbat 13” in the center of Moscow is in full swing preparing for a party in honor of the inauguration of Donald trump. Must be the first time in history the Russians are going to celebrate the day when the American President swears to “preserve, protect and defend the Constitution of the United States,” as significant for them event.
Igor chalecki, whose club is frequented by businessmen, government officials, and wealthy lovers of what is called gangster jazz should be the new Russian trend. “The cult of the trump, because the new US President seems loyal to Russia,” said chalecki The Daily Beast. “So we decided that The Trump Band [new name of the ensemble] and their gangster jazz music suitable for the evening inauguration.”
The top Russian establishment says about trump: “He’s a deal maker, he’s one of us!” And the most famous fan elected President of the trump is the first Manager of Russia, President Vladimir Putin.
On Tuesday, commenting on the “Golden rain”, President Putin said that he could not imagine that trump hired prostitutes (“our girls with a low social responsibility”) to participate in the beauty contest of Miss universe that an American billionaire was organized in Moscow in 2013.
“For starters, he’s an adult and secondly, he is a man, who all his life held a beauty contest and met with the most beautiful women in the world, — said Putin. — I doubt that trump did it, although they [Russian prostitutes] of course, the best in the world”. Putin joked, as if they trump best friends.
At the same time, the official media in Moscow fervently condemned the “darkest days” of the presidency of Barack Obama. Some of his ironically named white dove, and “black bird”.
Speaking at a press conference in Moscow on Tuesday, President Putin smiled slightly when he suggested that Obama belongs to the category of people who are forgiven forever, but never gone.
Putin accused opponents of trump in an attempt to undermine the legitimacy of the elected President of the United States. The problem is not interference, in which Russia accused U.S. intelligence agencies, and, apparently, according to Putin, within these services. Putin has repeatedly accused them in the popular uprising in Ukraine in 2013 and 2014, centered on the Maidan in Kiev.
“I was under the impression that after training in Kiev, they are ready to arrange the Maidan at his Washington”, — said Putin. The assumption, in fact a warning about the coup in the United States.
So, now Russia’s enemies are also the enemies of trump, Putin spreads the idea that they [enemies] will do anything to one Russian trump took his post.
The press Secretary of the Ministry of foreign Affairs Maria Zakharova said First channel about the alleged attempt to “agents of us intelligence” in 2015 to recruit the Russian official who was trying to pay for the medicine necessary to save the life of a dying former Prime Minister Yevgeny Primakov.
On Tuesday, foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov said that American spies many times (more than in the past) tried to recruit Russian traitors. Lavrov (who previously seemed to be a friend of U.S. Secretary of state John Kerry) raised the issue of drugs for Primakov.
(“It’s really a shameful story for Russia,” said The Daily Beast, Deputy editor in chief of radio Echo of Moscow, Olga Bychkova. — Best Russian officials have publicly acknowledged that they can not even save the teachers of Putin, Primakov, without American drugs?” “From this we can conclude she said that, it seems that “Moscow needs Washington and can’t live without US”.)
The cult of trump, displaying his name and face, playing up to his tastes and interests are growing across Russia, from Moscow to Siberia. Before the new year in the city of Perm, near the Ural mountains, gave the Russian traditional honey cakes with local interpretation of the slogan of trump: “let’s Do it again Perm great”. (There is a bitter irony, especially for those who know what a Perm was the gateway to forced labour camps of the Soviet Gulag.)
The small town of Tula, outside Moscow, “trampoline” seized the head. Hotel and restaurant named in his honor, and the band comes out, which will play at the club Arbat 13, Moscow.
The Governor of Tula region Alexey Dyumin, a former bodyguard of Putin, is still very close with the Russian President, and some analysts predict that he could hold the highest post in the country. In Tula you can now find sugar packets with trump’s face. There was even the idea to give them to the new US President to “sweeten” the relationship with the United States.
Russian entrepreneurs, even the young, see the face and the “mane” trump’s a great opportunity for marketing. Recently a young artist-promoter Julia drew colorful portraits of Donald trump in the office Network, a youth Pro-Kremlin movements. “I never believed in any ideology,” said Julia to The Daily Beast. It’s just business. “Some portraits of Putin can be sold for 300 dollars, some are worth more than two thousand dollars, and now I can sell trump, our increasingly popular trend, for about $ 200”.
Trump has promised to revise the anti-Russian economic sanctions in exchange for reducing Russia’s stockpile of nuclear weapons. It was a complete surprise for Moscow, and someone thought it was a great idea. Russia is expensive and space of its nuclear Arsenal. But can the idea of trump to turn into politics?
“The flight of his imagination is unlimited”, — said the academician Alexei Arbatov. “This is an interesting example of a new system of thinking in Washington,” he added.
Go back to the club Arbat 13. The organizers of the party trump has prepared a few surprises, including a performance of Willy Tokarev, an octogenarian Russian-American musician from Brighton beach, which has been known since the times when Soviet authorities encouraged the relocation of undesirable citizens (some Jews, Ukrainian immigrants, offenders, political dissidents) in new York. Tokarev, an iconic figure, known for his songs about the gangster milieu of Brighton beach, would not have missed this.
Chalecki believes that it will be a spectacular evening, and looks forward to a bright future. “Many in Russia welcome the trump and hope that it will develop its business in Russia, as it is not from the world of politics, he is a businessman, his view of the world — business, rational and far from intrigue.”
To entertain your guests from the Russian elite, chalecki plans to sing a song of his own composition called “confessions of an oligarch”:
“I’m an oligarch, and even in Africa, the monarch will not allow what I allow.”
No doubt Donald trump would feel at home here.
