McDonald's finally opened in Novosibirsk!
Yes! McDonald's finally opened in Novoibirsk, or to be specific in the food court of the Aura shopping mall.

On Okhlobystin and his stance against gays
There's been a lot of coverage in the media about one Russian actor and activist, Mr. Okhlobystin, who recently made very harsh remarks toward gays, one was that he would prefer them to be burnt in stoves, and the second is that he would like to consider being gay as criminal offense and he even was stupid enough to write an open letter to our president as well. These actions of him drew unnecessary attention from the media and some anti-Russian media were quick to jump to conclusion that Russia is totally antigay or anti-LGBT for that matter. Looks like we need to step up and explain all this a bit. Read more
