NOTE: On Friday, two months shy of our third birthday, this blog passed another milestone, having by then been visited by three quarters of a million people since its founding in April 2006. The 5,000+ web pages created by this blog have now been opened well over one million times, and we have published over 15,000 comments, more than any other Russia politics blog in world history. And you ain’t seen nuthin’ yet! As we have said many times before, these statistics are as much the accomplishment of you the reader as they are of those who produce the content, so pat yourself on the back but don’t get complacent. Instead, redouble your efforts to publicize our content by using services like Digg and StumbleUpon. Remember: The KGB still rules Russia.
Great news. Your blog is of invaluable insight into Russia and is far more informative than the candy coated Western media who can not say a bad word about any nation who opposes their true enemy – America. (I’m not American but might as well be)
Something occurs to me… If Russia ever wised up and managed to de-thrown king Putin and actually started to reform its economy, society, political structure and such, would you change the name of your blog to “La Former Russophobe” it does not have the same style as “La Russophobe”. Fortunately (?) Russia shows no signs of forcing you to make such a decision in the near future.
Congratulations! Keep up the great work!
