Mike: Russia deserves its place in the world

Dear editor,
 
My name is Mike, I am from Romania and I found today your website. I read the today's edition and I tell you I was very pleasantly surprised. I like your approach on foreign politics and I admire you for not being ''politicaly correct'' (that is to not coping to the lies told by the international media who think all the inhabitants of this planet are morron). The truth must be told even though it hurts as usual. It is also interesting for me to find in your newspaper news about Russia. In my country Russia comes in issue only when something bad happens. Otherwise you country is completely ignored as if it were Andorra or something. I think that is both incorrect and unprofessional. No matter how many mistakes Russian politics have allegately made in the past, Russia deserves its place in the world, a place granted by an extraordinary culture, a huge geographical size and the millions of martyrs of the 20th century, killed by an ideology that was not Russian blend.
I am looking forward to read your articles daily.  I would also be more than pleased if someone in Russia would be interested in writing me and exchange opinions on every subject (I am mostly interested in the political situation of your country).

Thank you for your time and keep up the good work.

Sincerely yours,
Mike
