Details: Putin is scheduled to visit Volgograd from 30 January to 5 February, allegedly in honour of the celebration of the 80th anniversary of the victory in the Battle of Stalingrad.

At the same time,  Dmitry Peskov, the press secretary of the Russian president, clarified that Putin would come to Volgograd for one day. It is not yet clear whether the president will take part in the celebrations.

Volgograd-based media report that the city is also expecting a visit of Yevgeny Prigozhin, the founder of PMC Wagner, and Ramzan Kadyrov, the head of Chechnya, as part of the festive events.

The journalists note that the centre of Volgograd is being hastily prepared. It is also reported that from 30 January to 3 February, a ban was introduced in the city on the transit of heavy-duty and oversized vehicles, in particular those transporting dangerous goods.

In addition, on the “initiative” of veterans, 1 and 2 February were declared days off for employees of state organisations in the Volgograd Oblast. A military parade is scheduled for 2 February.


  1. Well, well, well, just yesterday I asked where the little Chechen skid mark is (underwear type skid mark). Now, the Three Stooges are together again. Maybe they’ll play a round of spin the bottle? Or do a circle jerk session? Maybe Mr. Platform shoes will rename the city after one of his heroes, Stalin?

  2. RuSSia lost me, in 2014, 2022, and now more than ever. We need to electro-shock Medvedev’s nipples, castrate Khadyrov, and push Putler out of a window. RuSSia is a lunatic asylum, a neverending sshitshow. Just stop it!

    • Good idea, Mike, but…
      Medvedev will enjoy the electro-shocks, since he’s a lunatic.
      Kadyrov’s balls are too small to find.
      Putler can’t be thrown out a window. His air-filled head would just make him float away.
