Russia Holocaust in iceOn Sunday night, viewers of Russia’s state-owned Channel One saw a dance performed by an Olympic champion in figure skating Tatyana Navka and a well-known actor Andrei Burkovsky. The dynamic dance routine featured spins and jumps and other complicated moves. A few times both dancers shined smiles at their audience.

Fidel Castro diesCuba's former president Fidel Castro, one of the world's longest-serving and most iconic leaders, has died aged 90.

His younger brother and successor as president Raul Castro announced the news on state television.

Castro toppled the government in 1959, introducing a Communist revolution. He defied the US for decades, surviving many assassination plots.

His supporters said he had given Cuba back to the people. Critics saw him as a dictator.

TVNL Comment:  Do your own research.  Look up Fulgencio Batista and learn the role of the US in supporting the worst dictators of Central and South America.  Learn about the repeated attempts to assissinate Castro by the US...and why Castro turned to the Soviets.  Long story.  Worth hearing the truth.
