"There is a desperate need for an English speaking Russian internet."
I have a lot of questions but I can't seem to convey a single one of them...
Didn't President Putin declare that he wanted to keep the Russian language pure? Perhaps that only applies to those living within Russia?
An English speaking Russian internet? That's somehow confusing to me, because there is this forum and RT has it's English version of its news program.
The whole idea sounds kind of fun, and such could help break down some barriers regards the two (very different) languages. English is full of slang and was actually intended to be a form of 'entertainment'... just ask William Shakespeare, because he was one of a few that put the English language through much 'trial and error' fashioning as a playwright.
What other language is there that one can use to create rhymes that is a versatile as English? There are 988,968 words in the English language according to that hyperlink. That's a lot of words.
On the other hand, the Russian language has 130,000 to 150,000 words in it. That's roughly one sixth the amount of words found in English.
What kind of undertaking would that be to somehow mesh the two languages when there's such a vast difference in the volume of words? And many words in English have more than one meaning, depending on their contextual usage.
The world may do a lot of growing-up if this idea took off in a positive direction.
I feel sorry for any Russians who wander down that path, because English is a confusing language, even to those whom were born into to a country that speaks such.
The three main 'brands' of English are British, Canadian and American. And the British will tell you that: there are only two things that truly divide Americans from the British, and that is the pond (the ocean) and a 'common' language. So funny and yet so true.

There is a divide in English that began in 1066 A.D.
Phariseeized Norman English vs plain talk English.
English, and German both have been infected with Talmudic definitions & introduced words designed to deceive.
in Germany they call the trick German High German and the plain talk German to be low German.
Originally plain talk English and Plain talk German were the same language.
Plain talk was rude, crude and direct. Most of our cuss words are plain talk.
The Normans forbade plain talk English.... and this obsession with eliminating plain talk continues today.
Hebrew was derived from Aramaic/Syrian as a trick language used by priests & lawyers to trick people.
Here is an example of a trick word that used to be routinely used in courts all across America:
Do you understand the charges?
To Joe peon, understand means comprehend.
To the court tricksters, understand means to stand under, support and accept the charges.

A good dictionary is American Heritage Dictionary with appendix that shows many root words going to Greek, Latin, Sanskrit etc. that help mightily in getting past the tricks that society unknowingly carries.
Strongs Concordance and Armamaic & Greek dictionary has a lot of good stuff to track down word meanings.
Even though Strongs Aramaic dictionary uses Hebrew letters, which are easier to learn and read, he usually gets you to the core issue, but you gotta dig deep sometimes.

I've heard something like this before, but it wasn't spelled out as well as you have done, LebenUndLieben.
I did give the Russians a word of caution about the English Language, as confusing as it is.
I'm hoping that the Russians will read what you've posted here and take it in to consideration also.
I'm well aware of that trickery language called 'legalese' which does everything it can "in the name of justice" to rip apart societies, right down to, and including that most basic unit: the family unit. Its primary goal is to generate revenue.
What do you call it when someone doesn't actually file charges, but slanders another in public for awhile, and when confronted by honest people they hold their ground, but never offer any proof? And In the course of all of that, their statements change a bit, here and there, until you are hearing several different stories over a period of time? What do you call it when these same people are challenged with this question: "if there is any truth to that, why haven't you reported to the police?" and they don't, but instead use a proxy agency?
And when all of that comes crashing down on the one who is being slandered, an every bit of factual evidence is presented to prove their innocents, the system convicts them anyway, in the absents of the so-called witness, who refuses to testify in court and under oath, and where there is virtually no evidence e,g,: fingerprints, any hair or fiber evidence nor DNA evidence of any kind? And where the entire police report is just hearsay, where everyone who talked to the police admit that they didn't actually witness anything save for the one person who is making the slanderous remarks, and again whom refuses to testify under oath, in a court of law?
It's called "railroading" and it destroys lives. Their mechanism for doing such is coercive language used to get anyone to sign a plea-bargain.
I'm yet to tell that story in full... because THAT happened to me. And to this day, they will add to the record, whatever it is that suit their needs, and for whatever reason, which just is a continuation of the slander... or rather libel, a literal character assassination... and they are happy about it.

Vanka, I'm Glad to read your experience with our inquisition legal system.
What you describe is what the inquisition did, only they used heavy duty torture in addition.
The burning of about 100 people in Waco, Texas by some witch named Janet Reno with the consent of President Clinton was just another burning of heretics.
And, all the noise requiring "political correctness" is all part of the same Talmudic oppression that has tortured and killed many, many millions of people since the Vatican began applying the same garbage that the Pharisees did in the days of He who became Apostle Paul.
When the doctrines and traditions of the Pharisees rule, what they did to the Green Branch is applied to the dry branches.
