Why did Moscow welcome its enemy Nuland?

Wednesday 13 October 2021
Moscow should not have welcomed Victoria Nuland as a negotiator. This is a bad sign, but there are also good ones. Nuland is Russia's enemy Victoria Nuland, US Under Secretary of State for Political Affairs, spent three days in Moscow (October 11-13). Mrs. Nuland was a key figure in the 2014 Ukrainian coup. She distributed posts in the new illegitimate government of Ukraine and defined its anti-Russian decisions that caused enormous damage to Russia. It is unlikely that Nuland's position has changed. Why did Moscow welcome her as a negotiator? The US could have chosen someone else, after all. However, Russia put herself in the "whatever you please" position. It is gratifying that the results of Nuland's visit refute this conclusion.

Why not call air passengers comrades, if they can no longer be called ladies and gentlemen?

Tuesday 12 October 2021
Those who fly British Airways will no longer hear "ladies and gentlemen" in announcements. Pilots and flight attendants will use gender-neutral greetings instead. The announcements that one hears when on board an airplane are to "reflect the diversity" of those who travel by air. Unlike the English language, the Russian one has a strong presence of the category of gender. The exception, perhaps, can be made in relation to the genderless word "comrade", which equated representatives of the two sexes. Such a lingual innovation infuriated Bulgakov's Professor Preobrazhensky, but a series of Russian revolutions could serve as an excuse for such a speech pattern. Yet, the Brits did not stop to do nearly the same in peacetime.

Russian elections: Boycott or accept

Monday 20 September 2021
The elections in Russia have gone without any serious incidents or sensations. However, the current election campaign differs from all previous ones. One of these differences is about the attitude of a number of international organizations, which decided to find the results of the parliamentary elections in Russia illegitimate, in advance, even before the results would be announced. First and foremost, it goes about the European Parliament. On September 16, the European Parliament adopted a resolution that recommended EU member states how to treat Russia correctly. The resolution particularly says:
