Ooops! Is Pravda for real?

    In a recent post I offered this URL:

    which is a short blurb on Putin's attitude towards Islamists.

    Yet after reading the next three stories, I think I'll re-consider this as a source of reliable information.


    Is this *the* Pravda I've heard of before? I'm not used to reading Russian sources, but the above articles seem a tad far fetched to be taken seriously. I'm not sure how to evaluate the article on Putin given these articles. Grain of salt time I suppose.

    If this is *the* Pravda, it might be interesting to read just as a cultural comparison with some of our supermarket check-out line tabloids in the US.
