    Your work is interestin, as I watch events unfolding in russia and Ukraine. I am norwegian living in Poland, a country that has her own experience with russian arrogance and contempt. I started a few weeks ago the website (I am i dustrial designer and also a WEB designer) aimed at press freedom and politics generally. And russia in particular, to start with. We would be happy for your views and comments, even artickles for publication? One of our numerous shortages on site are views from Turkey. Maybe specially concerning the Crimean Tatars, a neglected story and a people with links to Turkey historically. But really any issue you would like to add. If you wish we woukd gladly help promote your work.
    Best greetings
