Re: Photo Thread: 2013 to Present

Someone's looking young, free and single again. In Sochi last night (Thursday) at a birthday party. Get a room, guys ...

Monkey, you're the best!!! Thanks for all the time you spend to keep Marat's forum fresh and updated. It's good to see Marat having fun, just wish he would get out of politics.

Re: Photo Thread: 2013 to Present

I see only empty shadows..... then he picks up a duckling in the street - takes it home...and sends Dinara pics of his bemused cat(s))looking at the poor thing(which naturally she tweets..) seems he now has two cats...I just hope by now he realises he needs to take the baby bird back to Patriarchy Ponds and hope it's mama can find it......or better still give the bird to a proper carer....although I dunno if there are wildlife rangers in Moscow,,,hope so.

Unfortunately, I have a feeling he's in it for the long haul, but I hope I'm wrong. The birthday party in Sochi was for another United Russia Duma deputy, Sergei Krivonosov.

Yes, I think Dinara got a second cat for him at a cat exhibition a couple of years ago.

As for the duckling (a mallard, by the looks of things) Marat will be buying "duck diapers" for the next 20 years. Ducks aren't house-trainable. This is assuming he doesn't wake up one morning to find his cat with a mouth full of feathers and an innocent expression.

Dinara said on Instagram that Marat found the duckling "in Tee Street" which I assume is Tverskaya. Must have waddled quite far from its mother on Patriarch Ponds. He should really return it.

He's not the Messiah, he's a very naughty boy.

Oh wow, quite an interview. I understand you've google-read it and would take a lot of time to translate it all. He speaks about women in general, very vague about his own private life and yeah nothing about Anna.
Just that when a guy is very kind/good-hearted many women want to use it. Guess he's had some experience.

Thanks so much. I thought maybe I had missed something, because Google translate is usually so accurate, isn't it?

Well, wouldn't it be refreshing one day to read an interview in which Safin addresses his own imperfections, rather than highlighting the deficiencies in women's "education"? Also, he's an adult now, so he cannot be taken advantage of without his consent. Women want him predominantly for his body, not his money or goodwill.

He needs to chill out and watch "Gentlemen Prefer Blondes".

LOL great movie btw.
I'm one of those who'd want him for his body too so I better keep quiet. But we know he's a softie.

Re: Photo Thread: 2013 to Present

interesting that has taken him so long to declare publicly that he never really cared for tennis - because he IS competitive in his own way, but actually always wanted the 'protection' of a team - where he can "follow the chain of command" and the effects of defeat are diluted....Guess he must feel very comfortable in the Duma, because all he has to do is keep pushing the buttons according to the Party line...I suppose its unfair to say he's completely delusional because it may well be the case that in some way he can feel that he DOES accomplish something to 'help' some people in his constituency at least... (although the Tatars of the Crimea may have something to say about that...) he never seemed well adjusted to tennis emotionally anyway - and for him it always was "just a job".
As for the rest - nothing new - his cynical misogyny appears to have become even more overt - if that was possible - his view on what constitutes "independence" must be extremely narrow and does NOT appear to include "INTERdependance" which I guess is cornerstone of any long term monogamous relationship....looks like he is incapable of maintaining an intimate relationship beyond 4-5 years which again doesn't surprise me-I always suspected he is fundamentally unsuited to living in a long term monogamous relationship - and of course in the current climate in soviet society its simply too easy to deflect his slightly unconventional singularity by making his rather confused references to 'real men' and the problem with women ...why can't he just marry his blonde and have his mistresses like all the others? ...maybe because the blonde is actually NOT that "stupid" .... dunno..... this latest drivel merely confirms my worst interpretation of him in that regard - he may be a 'softie' in some ways - but a deeply sexist one. :-(

En route to Nizhny Novgorod today, via Kafelnikov's Twitter. Apparently the plane broke down.

With the ever adorable Yuri B. and his children, uploaded yesterday to Facebook. I think this might have been taken at Academy Café on Bolshaya Bronnaya in Moscow.

this sounds quite accurate sadly most of the time his body makes us blind or made us blind. And I like how you point out that his misogyny has become more overt because actually I don't believe he did much to hide it anyway. He just needed his fan base to be strong for the sponsors in his tennis days. I don't mind that he saw tennis as a job but he shouldn't p$%s all over those who cared about his results.
At this point I don't see any redemption in sight.
About marriage or whatever although he is very caveman in his views he still probably fancies himself as a rebel or excentric.

That's all I have to say.

Oh and before someone takes ofence don't feel included if you believe you were always rational about Marat as a person I know people took ofence before about insulting inteligence. Is just a way to express how I feel and maybe one more person out there because I can't believe though that I am unique.

In the middle of difficulty lies opportunity. (Albert Einstein)

I would love to see that!
