Oh, what a month.
The Ukrainian rallies seem to be so far away now. I stopped following the events there even before Piskun became our prosecutor general yet again. The most important thing is that there's been no bloodshed.
And what a week.
First, Yeltsin. Now Rostropovich and Lavrov...
Lavrov the actor, not the foreign minister; the latter is quite alive, commenting on the situation in Tallinn left and right.
Yes, and now the situation in Tallinn: I've just posted a GV translation on that.
And the week's not over yet.
Chernobyl's 21st anniversary went pretty much unnoticed - by me, at least, because both Marta and I felt pretty ill on that day. Marta is teething; me, I don't know what it was.
An interesting point someone made on Radio Echo of Moscow today: in 1999, there were no Russian billionaires on the Forbes list; in 2007, there are 53.
Just another way of looking at the years of Yeltsin's rule vs. the years of Putin's rule.
