When the whole world looks at #Russia in light of #MH17 reports, what do they do? Show off their missiles, of course.

There isn't going to be a Dzhokhar Street in Boston. But Yeltsin & Putin's Russia invaded Chechnya. Twice. #Tsarnaev

But the reality, the truth is in the old books, not in some TV drama or reinterpretation.
Russia may not be a reading list, but it can only be understood by long and intensive reading.
I would argue the reverse - that Russia has not changed since the 19th century, and can only be understood by reading its Russian literature
#Nationalism, though unavoidable in some historical situations, is not an ideology to be proud of.
From the Twitter silence, apparently not - in the sense that #Pushkin and #Russia are the same.
Now, would anyone argue that the converse is true - that #Putin and #Russia are the same?
For me, being opposed to #Putin is not the same as being opposed to #Russia. They are fundamentally different things.
It's maybe partly why I've been absent from Twitter for so long - I can't "take sides" where Russia/Ukraine, Russia/Baltics are concerned.
I'm a firm supporter of an independent #Ukraine, but there really is a lot of #Russophobia in some of the pro-Ukraine commentary.
