New Feature: Мы говорим на русском языке

Today La Russophobe is pleased to announce a new feature, bilingual columns. We offer three such features today, first from Ethan Berger of Georgetown Law Center and the American University and then from Andrei Piontovsky of the Hudson Institute, both scholars in Washington DC, and finally from blogger David McDuff of A Day at a Time. Following the English text of each column is a high-quality Russian translation. Berger addresses the killing of Anna Politkovskaya, McDuff addresses the killing of Alexander Litvinenko (translating KGB defector Oleg Gordievsky) and Piontkovsky looks at the big picture of Russia's "paranoid style" of governance.

Such material is not always available to LR, but when it is we are happy to make this a bilingual blog. Comments in Russian are always welcome on any post and Russian submissions for publication are happily considered, translation provided.

Also note that we follow our scholarly hat trick with yet a fourth such analysis, from the Carnegie Center's Nikolai Petrov, who offers a case study on Russian corruption. Unfortunately a Russian version does not seem to be available.

It's nice to see this blog widen it's outreach. Maybe you should get your own domain name.

END: Thanks! We are pleased to be honored with content from a scholar like Professor Burger.

We find the idea of a domain name interesting, but intimidating. It seems it would require somebody to design a new blog and then to transfer the content from this one, and we have no idea how, much less the time. If you know of anyone who can help please do let us know. We're not very technological and highly pressed for time.

One of my friends might be able to help out with the technical aspects of a migration to a domain. I'll look into it...
