Today is March 8, meaning it’s International Women’s Day in the former Warsaw Pact nations. It brings back mixed emotions–gagging, for starters, just remembering the revolting cheesiness of those fat, vain Russian TV hosts showing off their toasting skills in honor of women they could give a fuck about…and the Russian women in our lives who were mortally offended if you didn’t partake in the whole offensive ritual.

But then there was the other side of Women’s Day that makes us a bit nostalgic: Russia’s devushki. An abundance of devushki. So many devushki it gave you a headache. As this recent Komsomolskaya Pravda story on the “Girls of the Siloviki” shows, even the scariest devushki had a certain tantalizing “Amateur Hardcore MILF” quality about them that made it hard to think responsibly. (If you want to know more about the siloviki, click here. Would you like to know more?)

So here then is a March 8 photo essay showing off Kremlin Femdom at its best: The Girls of the Silovki:

    I want my old life back. Such great memories…sigh…

    Please God, don’t ever let Russian “integrate” into the West. Don’t ever let her succumb to the desires of self-hating Russian liberals and join the EU. Let Russia be to the female sex what the great game parks of Africa are to wildlife: a pure, sheltered, oasis of snapper.

    reminding us once again why the exile rocks

    Let me be clear – although there’s been a recent elephantaning of Russian dyevs in the cities due to the rise of the office culture and the availability of automobiles, the dyevs shown above STILL represent what I would consider a cross-section of totally average women for provincial Russia. By American standards they are amazing creatures – feminine, soft, long-haired, gazelle-like. For Russia these are a dime a dozen. Yes, it really, really is a paradise of female beauty. C’praznikom, dyevuskiy, and remember to walk to the office now and then.

  • 7. adolphhitler  |  March 9th, 2010 at 7:24 am

    yeah, this site needs more snapper

  • 8. Rubicon  |  March 9th, 2010 at 9:53 am

    Lawd o mercy! Babes with knee-high boots, guns and martial arts training. It’s like some kind of B&D fantasy land.

  • 9. Paddy O'Leprachaun  |  March 10th, 2010 at 1:32 am

    God, I wish I was in Russia right now. I’m stuck in Dublin where we have the ugliest women outside of Africa or Sri Lanka. Click on that link above and see what I mean. It’s no wonder the farmers here fuck their sheep.
    That site’s run by some faggot named Wayne Cronin (only a faggot would go by the name Wayne) who obviously has no concept of female beauty as long as they wear expensive ugly clothes.

  • 10. FrankMcG  |  March 10th, 2010 at 11:34 am

    I guess all your civil authority positions HAVE to be filled with young beauties when no one lives past 40.

  • 11. Ian Gilbert  |  March 11th, 2010 at 5:38 am

    If any ANY of these women are reading this, will you marry me? I am a British citizen with a US Green Card. Did I say ANY???

  • 12. jimbo  |  March 11th, 2010 at 8:10 am

    In some countries a real fat woman would be looked upon in the same way as an alcoholic someone who has a problem controling their impulses and hence an unreliable bad job prospect but in America you’ve got all these heifers in management positions who take out all their personal problems on their subordinates. American corporations overseas and the US embassy is the same way. Everytime you’ve got to deal with them you find yourself face to face with some repulsive sow.

  • 13. nampa1  |  March 15th, 2010 at 10:04 am

    jimbo, I’ve been trying to break into “corporations and the U.S. embassy overseas” for years, work-wise. Do you have any info?

    That was one good thing about ESL: if the fat chicks couldn’t hack it, they disappeared, back to the USA.

    The phases were: first, new in-country, thinks she’s how stuff; second, starts to get anxious and browbeats the guys for attention; three, after being ignored, she tries to shame guys for attention; four, disappears in sullen silence.

    In a real job, I can only imagine the happiness sabotage that these women would pull on subordinates.

  • 14. Mark  |  March 16th, 2010 at 10:39 am

    Nampa: sayyyy….. are you talking about that twitching psychotic who runs the La Russophobe blog? I mention this because she seems to be in all three of the first phases at once, and I’m anxiously awaiting the onset of phase 4.

    Seriously, what a nutjob.

  • 15. tim  |  March 17th, 2010 at 12:40 pm

    You mean ESL is not a real job?!
