Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
off-topic: it was surprise to me to find you had been discussing 2 days ago me and my ethnicity with lana.

Barring her usual insults she mentioned izvestia article calling it shocking. actually nothing shocking in it except subheadline - "Ethnic Russians have been living under local nationalism". But in article itself there are no facts confirming ethnic discrimination even President of this republic is ethnic Russian. Then journalist used highly questionable sources like Mr Yurkov who is known as scandal-prone figure and delighted to have any publicity saying anything to anybody what is needed. By the way there was lively discussion in forum under this article where overwhelming majority dubbed this article which lana seemed to believe and other articles in Izvestia (and many other Moscow-based media) as biased and unjustified.

But what lana has to explain is the reasons behind the rise of ugly racism and nationalism in Moscow and St Petersburg - just last month yet one more young man from Yakutsk was murdered in Moscow by Russian fascists (the text in Russian):
The murder caused widespread outrage and even demonstrations were held.

Obviously lana has no case and her posts do not deserve even troll marks.
