Moscow's preparation for its New Year's Eve celebrations was captured by drone footage, on Tuesday. Pushkin Square was illuminated with festive decorations, Russian Yolka trees and light tunnels ahead of the countdown to 2016.
The decorations are part of 'Journey to Christmas,' a festival which started on December 18 and will run until January 17 in the Russian capital. Moscow's city centre, including Red Square and the Kremlin, have been adorned with Christmas markets and ice rinks as part of the continual celebrations.

It's just a few days before the New Year. The celebrations in Moscow have already begun and will last until January 13th. In 2018, Moscow won the World Festival and Event City Award, a prestigious international award. It was awarded for developing event tourism at an explosive pace, that's the only word for it.

Siberian Coca Cola lawsuit activist demands Putin ban Western Santa Claus & force foreign firms to use Slavic rival ‘Ded Moroz’
RT.com 14 Dec, 2020 16:02
A Siberian man is suing Coca-Cola for “imposing” the Western image of Santa Claus on Russian society, instead of the Slavic ‘Ded Moroz’ and his granddaughter ‘Snegurochka’ which are traditional in the country.
Denis Amosov, a resident of Tomsk, explained that Coca-Cola is responsible for displacing local characters Ded Moroz (Grandfather Frost) and Snegurochka (Snow Maiden) in the mind of Russian people, and they should be punished for it.
“There is an association among children and adults that a happy new year is only possible with Coca-Cola and Santa Claus,” said Amosov in an Instagram post. “Russian traditions and centuries-old history are being lost.”
In his speech, Amosov, a specialist in marketing, noted that the holiday season no longer “gives him the same pleasure” as before, due to the “endless advertising in the run-up” and the constant appearance of Santa.
The lawsuit, for a whopping 30 million rubles ($411,000), has been filed for “compensation for moral damage” and “the creation of an association to protect the image of the Russian Snow Maiden.” Amosov also appealed to both the president and the Ministry of Culture to restrict the use of Santa Claus in the country, and wants to force Coca-Cola to use local imagery in the future.
Last month, Coca-Cola Russia released their 2020 Christmas advert, with the theme ‘Be closer like never before’. Like previous years, it includes the trademarked bright red truck, this time being driven by Santa Claus himself.

Gopnik: from leader's POV, i'd say Kim Jong Un as in north korea he is not forcing any pics of himself nor making a shit ton of songs praising him unlike his dad and grandfather, but instead he is attempting to get the nation out of the shithole it is in today.
