As an interesting side note, traffic to this blog from Russia has soared again. I wonder what the attractions is - not. Normally, after the USA, which is always the highest in readership, France takes second place in the number of readers, followed by other western European countries. At the moment, however, Russia is a close second to USA readership. Bizarrely a few weeks ago, Russian readership actually exceed that for the USA. It seems comments and stories about Trump/Putin ties and possible treason on the part of Der Trumpenführer is of high interest in Russia.
