    According to an article published in Thursday's edition of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo, Russia would benefit substantially from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's victory in November presidential election in the United States.

    MOSCOW (Sputnik) Russia would benefit substantially from Republican presidential nominee Donald Trump's victory in November presidential election in the United States, an article published in Thursday's edition of the French satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo reads.

    “It is insufficient to say that the Kremlin took its side [of supporting Trump]. If Trump becomes president, Russia will get a serious gain. Trump, a big fan of [Russian President Vladimir] Putin, will rush to lift sanctions against Russia and to recognize the annexation of Crimea,” Charlie Hebdo journalists wrote in their article accompanied by cartoons depicting Putin and Trump together.

    During his election campaign, the Republican candidate has expressed willingness to have good relations with Russia. Moscow, in turn, has repeatedly stated that it will not interfere in the election campaign and will work with the candidate chosen by the US voters.

    Crimea rejoined Russia in 2014, after an overwhelming majority of voters supported the historic reunification in a referendum.

    Charlie Hebdo magazine became famous after two Islamist gunmen had burst into the editorial office of the satirical magazine Charlie Hebdo on January 7, 2015, and opened fire for publishing controversial caricatures of religious figures. A total of 12 people were killed in the massacre.

      Well, Charlie Hebdo is, without question, one of the trashiest publications in the Western world.

      It has a long record of making nasty fun of other people and their beliefs.

      The only topic it studiously avoids is making fun of Jewish beliefs.

      I wonder why that is?

      Could it be that the owner is an important supporter of Israel?

      Now, it is exactly such people - Neocons and members of the Israel Lobby in America - who most vociferously oppose Trump, and indeed to the point of uttering really hateful stuff.

      They, of course, all support Hillary, faithful servant to the Neocons and their ugly wars.

      Charlie hebdo is best used as toilet paper or to light a fire in winter time. They insult whole nations and religions on a regular basis. They have got the worst president in the history of French republics next door to their office, yet they decide to earn a living satirizing religious leaders, earthquake victims, and starving children. The Globalist Establishment calls that "freedom of speech", yet if you criticize "Le grand remplacement" you get fined or worse. A once great nation going down the sewers.
