Quote Of The Day
“One consequence of the elevation of the second world war victory to a quasi-religious narrative is that it has made it easier to transpose the events of the war years on to modern-day Russia. Instead of looking to Vitaly Mutko or other officials for an explanation of how the country got into this mess, many Russians instead see their country as heroically standing up to a monstrous external aggressor once again, whether it is on the battlefields of eastern Ukraine or the ski slopes of Sochi.”
