Google fails because it substitutes a term in my original query with a synonym, without asking me first (or even informing me)

When I searched for the lost day, I was looking for a documentary related to Russia. But Google seems to apply its own brain, and it also showed me results for the missing day. The result is that the SERP is utterly useless.

Only one algorithmic result visible on the SERP without scrolling. Rest is all ads. So much for "...we expect that advertising funded search engines will be inherently biased towards the advertisers and away from the needs of the consumers."
