This is an excellent one from Pravda. It is fast becoming my favourite Russian newspaper. Why? I'll tell you why.
a) It has a whole section wonderfully called Hotspots and Incidents, generally listing horrific happenings and an uncanny amount of explosions happening around the place. I mean, elsewhere you might just call that news. But not at Pravda. Also, why call it news when you could call it Hotspots and Incidents? These guys have a sense of drama and event, and I like that.
b) Sometimes there are headlines like Sporadic Prostitutes Conquer Moscow.
c) They run loads of photo stories, such as Cyclops Cats, Two-Headed Birds and Monster Dogs.
On top of all this, there is this story -- unequivocally titled Russia's Most Desirable Single Women, based on "women's fortune and their celebrity status". Check them out. My favourites thus far are Alina Kabayeva, friends with Putin; Alyona Akhmadullina, friends with "many Russian oligarchs"; and Ksenia Sukhinova (you must remember Ksenia -- she's a major hero of this blog AND the face of the Eurovision Song Contest). And then of course's there's the other Ksenia -- oh, how the Ksenias must want to scratch each other's eyes out -- Ksenia Sobchak, who is, says Pravda, "an analogue to Paris Hilton". Can you possibly imagine a more distinguished tagline to your identity?
