1. Pogrom against the Jewish population.

Re: Promoting Family Values - The Russian Way

I'm all for bringing back the Emperor (whoever the family decides that is now) but I'm not such a big fan of the "Send a Jewish Russian Family to Israel" advertisements on US TV.

Re: Promoting Family Values - The Russian Way

The whole idea is "страшно и смешно" type, but I got a feeling that an author of the article shows a bit of an ignorance here, when it comes to "Cossacks".
