It is not a secret now that today relations of Russia with different countries which could be our faithful allies are becoming less cloudless. This year it became especially obvious. But is it necessary to burn bridges? Flexibility is necessary in these relations.

Is it correct to translate all relations on a monetary basis? It was with Georgia, Ukraine, Moldova, Armenia, Azerbaijan, Kazakhstan. Recent New Year's conflict with Byelorussia (White Russia) once again roughly naked essence of the future changes.

We do not have allies. Love for money has remained. Oh, pity calculation! Everything is seized by it. We should only recognize its domination which has aggravated political situation.


On March 4, 2012, in Chicago, IL, Kontinent Media and In Bloom Magazine hosted Tango for the Cause A Shriners Hospital for Children Benefit at American Tango Institute.

This cross-cultural fundraising benefit was attended by over 175 prominent guests held at the Pugliese-Piazzolla Ballroom. Guests were transported to Argentina through the striking visuals of Tango, by participating in the Tango instruction, followed by a breathtaking performance from internationally-acclaimed Stars of Tango, Luciano Brigante and Alejandra Orozco from Buenos Aires. Pursuing the benefits Tango theme the attendees heard the sensual sounds of Latin acoustic performances from Terra Sounds School of Music and Arts co-founder guitarist Aleks di Roma and percussion Dana Crozier. All while enjoying sponsored: sangria, signature cocktails, delectable hors doeuvres, sushi creations by a live chef and tantalizing desserts, followed by viewing of a video about the hospitals mission entitled In My World with silent auction culminating the evening. First 50 ladies to arrive were gifted with a flower and a gorgeous bouquet was presented to Sara Klaas representing Shriners Hospital.


Aspiring American artist David Datuna, whose work Putin Mona Lisa (Putin Couture series) only days ago rocked the world of art, is appealing today to Ukrainian President Viktor Yanukovich.
To clarify the situation, Igor Tsesarski, Publisher and Editor-in-Chief of Kontinent media group telephoned the artist and received first-hand information.

Just about a month ago all world mass media including Kontinent media group were buzzing about your work Putin Couture, which was bought for 200 thousand euro by some Russian businessman in Moscow. It looks like even the news from "art-fields" of auctions Sotheby's and Christie's did not cause such enthusiastic response and discussion. And while it is still the talk of the town, you have prepared a new sensation. Could you please reveal any details?
With pleasure. Its about my direct reaching out to the President of Ukraine Viktor Yanukovich. It is not a secret that Ukraine and Poland will be hosting the European Football Championship in 2012. Without any exaggeration it is a remarkable event for the country, a magnificent chance to demonstrate to the world the best of its public life, economy, culture, etc.
More than a billion people all over the world will be following the events on the football field, but at the same time they will focused on Ukraine, too.
As far as I know the country has been thoroughly preparing for the championship. But I think one of the main ideas of this sports event should also be a spiritual aspect. It is important to demonstrate the beauty, spirituality, strength, and uniqueness of the country to the world. And this can be done through art.

August 3, 2011, Chicago, IL, Kontinent Media attends president Obamas 50th birthday celebration with friends and family. Over 1,700 political friends were in attendance at the Aragon Ballroom reported our correspondent. Those invited to attend enjoyed concert with Jennifer Hudson, Herbie Hancock and OK Go. Same serenaded the president with Happy birthday Mr. President as Obama took the stage to address the crowd. The event was also attended by many prominent politicians such as Dick Durbin, Jan Schakowsky, and Mayor of Chicago Rahm Emanuel. Mayor addressed the crowd prior to the president taking the stage.

Just days after the debt ceiling crisis (seemingly) resolved, the Obama administration kicked off its fundraising campaign for 2012. It was reported that 100 backers contributing $35,800 each for an opportunity to have dinner with the president.

Obama in a lighthearted manner joked with the crowd about receiving an email from the AARP membership urging him to contact the president. He went on to say that "[o]bviously, I've gotten a little grayer since I took this job, but otherwise I feel pretty good," the president said. "And Michelle, you know, says that she still thinks I'm cute and I guess that's all that matters, isn't it?"

Obama made a point to address immigration issues and his willingness to work to get it done.
Obama is among the youngest of presidents. Only six others have turned 50 on the job: James Polk, Franklin Pierce, Ulysses Grant, Grover Cleveland, Theodore Roosevelt and Bill Clinton.
Leonard Mogul for Kontinent Media concluded that it was an honor to be invited to celebrate Obamas 50th birthday. It was an incredible feeling to stand among other mainstream press representing my Russian-American community. The event was also attended by ABC, NBC, Sun-Times, Tribune, Fox, WGN, with select few media outlets accredited for this special event.

Well-known far beyond the borders of Illinois, Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating has opened a new office in the northern Chicago suburb of Waukegan. Our special correspondent Irina Tsesarskiy attended the grand opening event.

In a cozy room of the office building located at: 2504 Washington Street, Suite # 200-I, Waukegan, IL 60085, Suzan Lakhovsky, new distributor Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating, her loyal assistants, and of course, the founder of and guru behind Seattle Sutton's Healthy Eating, met up to mark the occasion.

A Protest to the Metropolitan Opera over the intent to renew staging of the anti-Semitic opera Death of Klinghoffer and its world-wide dissemination

A protest has been inspired by the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East reporting in America, see attachment.

With that opera Mr. Adams demonstrates a stupefying ignorance over the history of the Israeli/Palestinian conflict.

With that opera Mr. Adams demonstrates insensitivity to the Jewish people in general and specifically to the hapless victims of the Palestinian terrorism, a disabled Mr. Klinghoffer, and his family.

With that opera Mr. Adams has fallen into the abyss of a moral misjudgment in his naive attempt to find a moral equivalence between a wheel-chair bound Klinghoffer and blood-thirsty bandits.

With that opera Mr. Adams plays into the hands of those who perpetrates horrific crimes, and justifies their further crimes.

With that opera Mr. Adams never can feel himself exonerated from a reproach that it was his opera that contributed in beheading of a journalist Daniel Pearl in 2002 and kidnapping of three Israeli teenagers just recently.

With that opera Mr. Adams and Metropolitan Opera present themselves as profiteers of the artificial ambiguity created by the opera.

One cant help asking why would the Metropolitan Opera wanted to disseminate such an obnoxious art.

Stop staging the anti-Semitic anti-human anti-historic opera!
