Thanks for sharing! The situation in Russia did hardly improve over the last 100 years.

Regards,

Edwin

Agreed, one of the great historical tragedies. Their 1917 Revolution just gave control to another minority group, "the vanguard of the Proletariat " a communist nobility with it's own ruthless dictator. Stalin slaughtered millions more than Hitler. Always dictatorship and even now, they have the little man who kills anyone who criticizes and gets his picture taken like Mussolini with his shirt off, riding on horseback. God help the long suffering people of Russia.
