  1. yesterday was the 60th anniversary of the March deportations. wiki article: http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Operation_Priboi

    Hence also the Nashi stakeout in Finland that you reported a few days back – they were presenting some materials linked to these events.

  2. Well, it looks like the repatriation plan was a bust, not a lot of interest in returning to Putin’s paradise.

    The government plans to slash spending on a program aimed at attracting Russians home from abroad due to a disappointing response since the first people started to return in 2007, the Federal Migration Service said Thursday.
    ——-
    Officials at the time expressed hope that the program would entice 300,000 workers to come to Russia by 2009, thanks in part to a fast-track naturalization process.

    The lower-than-expected return rate is behind the decision to reduce the program’s funding, not the financial crisis, Poltoranin said.
