Your mission, should you chose to accept it, is to listen to Les Filles talk about spies and espionage in movies and TV.
Spies are sexy (at least in movies and on TV they are) and they have cool gadgets. What’s not to love?

IT’S BREAD DAY EVE
HAPPY BREAD DAY
FELICEM DIEM PANIS
Dies Internationalis Panarius mihi valde placet!
Disclaimer: I have some knowledge of The Silence of the Lambs and Hannibal plots, but have not read the books or watched the films.
I greatly enjoyed the turducken episode. Maybe even too much. (Just kidding, we all know that feeling glee at watching a lesser murderer crawl out of a horse only to run smack-dab into a true murder wizard is perfectly normal.) That said, I am feeling some… apprehension.

Really seriously flabbergasted and concerned about this.
This is terrifying and very important.
I thought this would be some sort of extreme shit or parody but
I started giggling because the sheer horror I felt looking at this meant I either broke down or laughed
This is terrifying.
Happy FUCKING Passover >:(
THE GOVERNMENT OF DONETSK IS NOT ASKING JEWS TO REGISTER.
Just wanted to clear that up (boy, am I going to regret wading into this).
Yes, these leaflets were put up at a synagogue by three masked people.
Is the government of the region actually asking its Jewish citizens to register? No.
Was this purely born of anti-Semitism intending to scare the local Jewish population and not done for political reasons? Possibly.
Was this an attempt by the pro-Russian faction to provoke the local Jewish community into a violent response thereby justifying their own violence? Possibly (this is what the community itself believes).
Was this an attempt by the anti-Russian faction to make the pro-Russian faction look bad in the media? Possibly (less likely, in my own opinion).
Is it some combination of number 1 with number 2 or 3? Almost certainly.
So, is this a hoax? Yes and no. Yes, in that there is no actual government mandate. No, because the story as reported is true, these leaflets were put up at the Synagogue and this was an anti-Semitic action.
Tl;DR: racism in Russia and its neighbouring nations is as fucked up as… well everything else in Russia.
