The purpose of this site is to provide breaking news on Russia, the former Soviet republics, and Eastern Europe. In other words, the territory once ruled by the tsars. We are not pro-Russian or anti-Russian, nor pro-Ukrainian, or anti-Ukrainian. We are pro-truth.
We do not support dictatorship but simply are attempting to provide information on the area, especially to the West, which we see as vastly uneducated on these issues. We present opinions from all sides. Readers can make up their own minds. Contributions are welcome and will be considered.
We are building out the site to provide information on breaking news, culture, travel, opinion, and analysis of the region. We have reporters in many former Soviet, Eastern European countries and are adding more every day.
As you can see, we are not into lots of graphics and bells and whistles that slow down the site. We are into presenting a lot of information in a simple, elegant way. The styling may change over time but that basic philosophy will not.
