Hello: The Cold War is over, so why does Pravda continue to express hostility towards the United States? Is it because we embarrassed Russia throughout the whole Berlin Wall being dismantled? Maybe. I encourage Pravda to continue to provide Americans with valuable information about the United States from a Russian perspective, but please...please...stop the animosity. Thank you,
