WEDNESDAY JUNE 30 CONTENTS
NOTE: Several months ago we noted the 2,000,000th visit to this blog, as measured by the counter on our previous Blogger-hosted blog and the one on our current WordPress installation. Last Saturday, the counter on our current blog rolled past the 2,000,000 visit mark all by itself. We have now welcomed over 2.3 million visits to our blog, far more than has ever been displayed on the public counter of any other English-language Russia politics blog. We are also soon to publish our 50,000th comment, many times more than any other English-language Russia politics blog has ever received.
