According to a Russian on kiwifarms, soyboys are a problem there too.

Unfortunately Russia is on attack by the western culture. They want to turn Russia into yet another European country. They want to slowly normalize western culture in Russia, and supplant the traditional Russian culture. The culture is at siege.

For example compare the Russian grassroots village music



To whatever this crap is



On other topic, you remind me to name my kids traditional Russian names, like Svyatoslav.

One man in Russia says some people are promoting that everyone should eat the bugs.

Thank you to Nakanune.ru (and a Macedonia-based top secret Edward informant for the tip) for this scrumptious hot scoop:

In Russia, they proposed to produce products with a food additive from crickets as part of import substitution. The cricket meal company believes that the high protein content of the supplement will allow it to compete with meat.
Forage crickets are bred in the Chekhov district of the Moscow region. Farmers say that crickets are first euthanized and then ground into flour. This happens after the insects lay their eggs in the peat bog.
The head of Chekhov’s famous cricket hatchery was quoted as saying that his tasty bug-paste would help ensure “food security in the region.” Which is very true, because as everyone knows, Russia suffers from a severe lack of arable land—in fact, there’s barely any land at all.

In its own rendition of this delicious story, News.ru expertly explained:

The world has been discussing the need to abandon animal meat and switch to insect protein for several years now under the pretext of combating the reduction of carbon emissions. In particular, earlier scientists discovered that grasshoppers, ants and caterpillars contain a huge amount of antioxidants and can become a complete substitute for meat.
But will Russia go full-bug or half-bug or just a little bit bug?

It’s too soon to say. But there are certainly reasons for optimism.

In May 2022, Lenta.ru reported the creation of the country’s first cricket farm in Novosibirsk; the establishment’s cricket-flour was billed as a healthy and cost-efficient additive for animal feed.

So in a span of less than three months, we went from “the crickets are for cattle” to “the crickets are for you.” Scammed again?

So why does Russia have some of the largest grain exports in the world? I predict this business will fail.

The problem is not a severe lack of arable land in Russia, no, there is plenty, but that land is not given to the common people. A handful of corporations control Russia's grain industry. Grain is a cash crop, but people need land to grow their own food and be self sufficient. During the Soviet period many peasants families were rounded up, and using coercion relocated to the city to work in the factories. Now the factories are gone, but the people still don't have their land back. So Russian villages are dying and getting abandoned. Most of the population has been concentrated in the cities, and has low birth rates. These two factors, combined with importation of Central Asian peoples into Russia, who are often times aggressive against the Russkies and other locals, means that Russia is going the way of the EU, only some decades behind. Except that instead of Middle Easterners there are Central Asians.

So the government could easily buy food and distribute it to the people from these mass owned farms, couldn't they? Why would they need bugs?

There is a back to the country movement in Russia that is not unlike what we see in the US or Canada, with city dwellers selling their high-priced small pads for lots of land. In Russia today you can take over a nice farm with an old wooden house 2-3 hrs from the city for the cost of a new car. However the type of agriculture they will do in those farms is more like planting vegetables, selling eggs, making cheese or honey for urban farmers markets rather than growing wheat, which isn't economically feasible for small farms. You need large farms for that, with expensive machinery (harvesters etc).

PS - sorry to see you banned amigo.
