This Favorite WW2 Song Captures Russia's Ability to Suffer and Fight (Ahh the Roads - Translation)
by The Saker (The Saker)

Ekh Dorogi is a Russian popular favorite to this day. It was written in 1945. The famous Russian baritone Dmitry Khvorostovsky frequently performed it, so Western readers may find it familiar. The title means 'Ahh, the roads'. Translation below.

Dear friends,

Over the past few years one of my main efforts was to try to convince as many people as possible that Russia was preparing for war.  I also tried to caution about the completely misguided notion that because the Russian people feared war (they do!) they somehow were not ready for it (they are!).

Tory quarrels determined UK’s post-Brexit future, says Barnier

Revealed: EU chief negotiator’s diaries, The Great Illusion, give blow-by-blow account of moves behind UK’s departure

Britain’s post-Brexit future was determined by “the quarrels, low blows, multiple betrayals and thwarted ambitions of a certain number of Tory MPs”, the EU’s chief negotiator has said in his long-awaited diaries.
