Another attempt to make some kind of sense of what's going on east of the Dniester. Ukraine, Russia and Kazakhstan come in for special attention.

Damn!

I had really hoped that it wouldn't come to this, but the Russian Foreign Ministry informed the British Ambassador today that 4 British diplomats would be expelled.

See: http://www.guardian.co.uk/russia/article/0,,2130225,00.html

While I realise that reciprocity is nearly always the principle at work in affairs such as these, I still regret that the Russians took this step.

Well, as they say, "Tit for tat!"

Was good to see you last night Blair, and hope you had a good one after you parted.

Added a link from my blog to yours...

Or maybe I should say departed...

Have a great weekend and don't forget to listen to Skhidna liha on Continent FM 94.2 tonight at 17:15 or tomorrow morning at 11:15 if you miss it.

Hey Vasyl,

Good to see you too, for some good ol' hockey talk.

I will definitely be tuning in to the show tonight. lOOKING FORWARD TO IT!

So, did you catch our program? What did you think?

I don't know why I missed it! I tuned in, first to 92.4 (memory problems,) then to 94.2 on Saturday morning. It didn't seem to me that I was listening to the right program. I will try again!
