The Russian Embassy in Spain released a video on Friday mocking the West and its sanctions imposed on Russia.
The clip published on the embassy’s Twitter account, called “Time to move to Russia,” promotes Russia’s cultural values.
“This is Russia,” a narrator speaking English with a Russian accent says in the ad.
“Delicious cuisine, beautiful women, cheap gas, rich history, world-famous literature, unique architecture, fertile soil, cheap electricity and water, ballet, cheap taxi and delivery, traditional values, Christianity, no cancel culture, hospitality, vodka.”
Russia’s economy, “can withstand thousands of sanctions,” continues the voiceover.
“Time to move to Russia. Don’t delay, winter is coming, ” the ad concludes.
Time to move to Russia 🤍💙❤️ pic.twitter.com/4CZL1Nt4Gi

Fascinating sinister self-satire. But the punchline: does “Winter is coming” mean they might stop pumping gas to Europe (or otherwise spread more misery), that in the U.S. liberals are about to make life intolerable for good white Christians, or did they just want to meme it up? https://t.co/KtmOsw8twJ

The Gateway Pundit reported:
The ad’s reference to winter is also seen as a veiled threat to the West given Russia’s control of much of Europe’s gas supply.
Russia supplied the EU with 40 percent of its natural gas and 27 percent of its imported oil in 2021.
In June, Russia announced it would reduce natural gas flows through a key European pipeline by 40 percent in Germany.
On Monday, the Russian government double down, announcing it would cut gas to Germany and Europe by an additional 20 percent. As a result, Hanover, Germany turned off the heat, hot water and electricity in public buildings across the city.
The German city of Hanover has turned off the heating and switched to cold showers in all public buildings because of the Russian gas crisis.
It’s the first big city to turn off the hot water after Russia dramatically reduced Germany’s gas supply.
Germans have been told to expect sweeping gas reduction measures and extra charges on their energy bills.
And the EU has agreed to lower demand for Russian gas this winter by 15%.
In a bid to save energy, Germany’s northern city of Hanover has decided hot water will no longer be available for hand washing in public buildings, or in showers at swimming pools, sports halls and gyms.
Public fountains are also being switched off to save energy, and there will be no night-time lights on major buildings such as the town hall and museums.Mayor Belit Onay said the goal was to reduce the city’s energy consumption by 15% in reaction to an “imminent gas shortage” which posed a significant challenge for big cities.The rules apply to heating, too. Public buildings will not have any heating from April to the end of September each year, with room temperatures limited to a maximum of 20C for the rest of the year – with some exemptions.
