Excellent article. Good food for thought.

I was in Moscow and St. Petersburg in 1988 and it was an unfortunate time not only to be a Russian writer and artist but to be a Russian citizen. There was so little food in the stores. You could feel tension everywhere. It took a toll on every aspect of life.

Russia was once one of the world's great cultures and in their own league when it comes to writing. Then it was all squandered for ballet, chess, and rockets. Till this day as Obama says, they produce nothing.
