Highly recommend watching this movie to all my friends who ask me “how Russian people feel about what’s going on”. There are English subtitles
Broken Ties – Andrey Loshak’s Movie
Published by Hettie D.
My name is Henrietta (Hettie) Dombrovskaya. I was born in Saint-Petersburg, Russian (actually, back then – Leningrad, USSR) in 1963, and immigrated to the United States in 1996. I love Saint Petersburg, the city I was born and raised in, and I think it’s one of the most beautiful places in the world. Similarly (but differently) I love Chicago, and can’t imagine myself moving somewhere else in the observable future. I have three children, Igor, Vlad and Anna, all adults living on their own, and one (so far) granddaughter Nadia. I also believe that my children are the best thing that happened in my life. As for my professional life, I am working in the field of Information Technologies. When I was twenty, I’ve declared that the databases are the coolest thing invented and that I want to do them for the rest of my life. Thirty plus years later, I still believe it’s true, and still, believe that the databases are the best. These two statements together imply that I think a person can have it all, and indeed, I think so! Keep reading my journals to find out how I did it. View all posts by Hettie D.

Distressingly familiar to anyone from the States who was against the Vietnam war… But thanks for sharing.

Yea, a couple of my WP Russian and Ukrainian friends got these Roscomnadzor notices. And thank you for drawing the parallels to the Vietnam War. I didn’t think it was that close. Not sure whether this is discouraging or encouraging..
