It does load, just very slowly. That's because it's loading the Google translate version of an article in Russian.

And the translation itself is awful, as are most non-English articles run through Google translate.

The link is not using Google translate (which is actually pretty fast), but instead a .ru translation service. In case you can't access the link, here's the text of TFA from Google translate (about the same as the linked version).

Perhaps with such a farce, we will encounter, because the country tens of thousands of Sergei Ivanov . But I'm sure together we will overcome these troubles.

Too many secrets.

So all you have to do to get around the sanctions is use a fake name?

the suffix is often spelt "gei" it means "hails from"
like MacDonald, Peterson, or Van Hausen etc....

But well done on your threadjack, carry on with your hatred.

Real News: actual putin talking points for online trolls:

http://www.pravda.com.ua/rus/news/2014/03/28/7020676/

this is in russian, but long story short, it is the exact sort of talking points that partisan mudslingers in the US accuse each other of having taken to the nth degree of lies and evil.

That'll learn those Russkies, no sneakers for you guys if you use real names. After hearing of this, President Putin is packing up his forces and calling it quits. barry has done it again. All hail obama. He's so awesome and such a great president.
