This is what you need to know about me:  I blog under the nik “yalensis”.  I am NOT a robot, spambot, or any other kind of bot, I am a real person, I have a real life and a normal job.  (No, that is NOT me on the horse, that’s Peter the Great, I don’t even know how to ride horses).

Anyhow, I don’t get paid for blogging, translating, or any of the other things that I do.  (Except for my real job.)

I hope you enjoy my blog, I intend to provide interesting content for this small but growing niche of readers.

  4. I have NO IDEA how your BLOG ended up on my desk. But this is a good thing. Just know this. The Spiders that run the place are NOT the same people who live peacefully under its flag. I extend the hand of friendship to my Russian (private citizen) enemy. No collusion please?

    Interesting site. Can you give me links to some Russian blogs written in English like yours. Unfortunately Cyrillic alphabet isn’t easy to read so I’m looking for blogs like yours, where Russians are writing about they culture and history in English, and they are NOT editors of big magazines, but ordinary citizens like you (I believe) with moderate/central point of view. Thank you.

    Did you get my comment I emailed to you? I have read about the outright criminality under Yeltsin and hos Union dissolution was so that assets could be stolen.

    My diploma says that I am a graduate of UNIVERSITAS YALENSIS…..YALENSIS is either an adjective describing « University » or the genitive « of Yale »

    So may I presume you are a graduate of Yale?
