Hi Antonio, I am not wondering. Have been living in Russia for 26. Spring isn't happening anytime soon in my view. It's lust going to be a long end-of Winter before Spring starts--when everywhere is melting, the frozen earth is a muddy field and at any minute the rain can turn to freezing or another snow storm. Take a look at some of my essay's about Russia. "Lesson 3: My Czar, My Father" contains them all. But, nice analysis of the region. Does hint at 1992-93 all over again.
