Weather -
Winter has started. As of today. Cold. -12 where I am. And likely to stay that way for a couple of weeks.
The relatively small amount of snow on the ground is turning to hard snow and ice. What I hate. The true Ukrainian winter has started. Hopefully it will not last too long.
To be honest, December was unbelievably warm. And the first half of January was also super really. But now - real winter has begun.

A 70-year-old hermit who has spent her entire life in the Siberian wilderness has been airlifted to a hospital to treat a pain in her legs.
Agafia Lykova is the last remaining member of a deeply religious family that fled civilisation in 1936 and did not know about the second world war until geologists stumbled upon them in 1978...

One Man's Airport On Lake Baikal [Engl]

Post by Nelson on Sun Jan 17, 2016 3:08 am

http://www.rferl.org/media/photogallery/russia-society-pilot/27487641.html
Through the summer days of the Soviet era, Vladimir Prokopyev was a busy man. On a pristine island in Lake Baikal, the airport manager watched over the arrival of three or sometimes four flights every day. Then it all stopped. ...
====
A second story about the wild east of Russia.
One wonders - with all this wilderness and nothingness out in Siberia - why, oh why, does Putin need Donetsk airport?!!
I have been out to Baikal and in the wilderness there. Such a massive massive area.
Why have 10,000 people been killed so Putin can wave his flag over Donetsk airport? Or what remains of it!
Only one conclusion. Putin is an absolute nutcase.
