I'm going to make this my Pic of the Day. As a photograph it is magnificent but above all, we in "the West" and indeed people all round the world, need to see and know more of this magnificent, vast and very beautiful country and its people - give us more Nikolay! If anyone is in any doubt about Russia, it's only necessary to listen to the wonderful music that has come from there. All doubt dispelled instantly. The politicians are responsible for some appalling mistruths about that country.
