Dear Editorial Staff, I am very pleased to say that I try to read your virtual newspaper everyday. Your approach and different point of view from the European and especially American news sites helps me form a more objective point-of-view. Occasionally there are some language mistakes, however it is much better than my Russian. Thank you for making the effort and for being there. As an ex-Russian ex-pat I appreciate reading about the country I lived in and loved whilst I was there. With kind regards, Dirk Ingwersen
