Russia Today gave a statement to HuffPost UK:

"Contrary to the popular opinion, RT doesn't beat its journalists into submission, and they are free to express their own opinions, not just in private but on the air. This is the case with Abby's commentary on the Ukraine.

"We respect her views, and the views of all our journalists, presenters and program hosts, and there will be absolutely no reprimands made against Ms. Martin.

"In her comment Ms. Martin also noted that she does not possess a deep knowledge of reality of the situation in Crimea. As such we'll be sending her to Crimea to give her an opportunity to make up her own mind from the epicentre of the story."

Sometimes, you just see the perfect parking space. In that moment, nothing else matters. There are no other cars on the street. There are no other spaces. Only one lonely space waiting to be filled. Will you fill it? Will you be the one to fulfill this space's one dream in life? NOPE!

That lady just snatched it away from you. She felt the same way about the space, but as we all know, there is only room for one. Accidentally on purpose wins this round. Good luck next time.

A house is on display at the All-Russian Exhibit Centre in Moscow that has been meticulously designed to be just like any other typical house except for one small factor—it's upside down. Every item in the house has been placed upside down, and visitors even have to climb a staircase to enter through the front door. Those who enter will find themselves feeling as though they are walking upside down when, in truth, it's the objects in the house that are objects that are breaking the laws of gravity.
