The couple wanted to take a cute photo with horses, but it turned out hysterical

Europe Renaissance

Recently, preggers Amanda Eckstein and Phillip Werner  from the USA organised a photo session in honour of their imminent addition to the family. They brought several of their horses so that the animals stood beautifully in the background. However, the horse named Bakshot was clearly not pleased about playing second fiddle in the orchestration.

After the first few photographs were taken, the horse left the background and stood right next to the owners. Moreover, he reacted to the photographer’s joke: “Well, you at least smile for a photo! Say cheese!” Buckshot really did it!

According to the photographer, it was so unexpected that none of the participants in the shooting could restrain their laughter. However, it was even funnier to look at the resulting frames later.

This is not the Alain Delon that I imagined

Europe Renaissance

The great French artistes, actors, chanteuses like Mireille Matthieu, the iconic Brigitte Bardot, and international actors and heartthrob put at risk their careers by openly promoting their patriotic anti-migrant stance. Alain Delon has always supported Le Pen’s National Front especially when it was created by Marine le Pen’s war hero father.

On the other hand, mainstream editors and broadcasters are notorious for their collaboration with the state and its globalists doctrines.

Left-leaningVladimir Vladimirovich Pozner is a French-born Russian-American journalist and presenter.

‘I’ve never loved Alain Delon although I didn’t know him, I had never met him. But I had no doubt that he was an arrogant and narcissistic person. (Never met him? What kind of journalism is it that prejudged people in a profession that is supposed to be objective?)

‘Yes, and as an actor, I did not particularly appreciate him, except for his roles in the films of…

How a piece of Tsarist Russia appeared in Jerusalem in Palestine

Europe Renaissance

Since its establishment in 1860, the Russian Compound in Jerusalem has undergone many makeovers and ownership changes. Just a week before Nikita Khrushchev’s reign at the helm of affairs of the Soviet Union came to an end in 1964, he approved a decision to sell a 17-acre property in central Jerusalem that was owned by the Moscow Patriarchate for $3.5 million-worth of Jaffa oranges.

All that remained in Russian hands after the sale in the so-called Russian Compound was the Church of Holy Trinity, a landmark of Jerusalem, with its green domes and four octagonal bell towers, and another building.  The sale, which was made in oranges because Palestine at that time lacked hard currency, is still considered controversial, as Russia lost a prime piece of real estate in what is the Holy Land for practitioners of three of the country’s major faiths.
