Latvians recall better Soviet times, by Ruslan Ostashko

The myth of the” Soviet occupation” began to show cracks at the moment when Euro-integration has depopulated Latvia by half. And it’s not even ethnic Russians who are eager to destroy the myth, but Latvians. Recent debates among Latvians on the Facebook were set off by Inara Ballade’s post in which she blames the Latvian “patriots” for brainwashing the population. “It’s disgusting to read this fictional and strained nonsense of

Does Belarus need an independence? by Ruslan Ostashko

Translated and subtitled by Scott Humor Life has once again confirmed the validity of assessment given by a former Polish foreign minister Radoslaw Sikorski.     This long gone former minister once said that the Poles “gave the Americans a blowjob for nothing in return.

Honestly, I always thought this was a literary technique allowing Holmes’ intelligence to shine brighter and brighter against a backdrop of a policeman’s stupidity. After Skripal’s case, not only I don’t think so any longer, but I’m almost 100% certain
