I had a such good cruise on the Volga dream ! I will remember for ever and I enjoy your videos. It is like the cruise still continues. Hope you cope with Covid-19. Take care. Thank you .

Nice to remember that the countries actually used to get along with each other for most of history. I wish our politicians worked more on restoring good relations between our nations!



It is a fascinating fact which almost none is aware of in the West – Russia abolished serfdom 4 years before US stopped slavery. Thanks for the video, Ludmila.
