  1. Attached is photo of the Russian cemetery at Fort Ross, California, Pacific coast, established in 1812. It was the most southerly Russian settlement in North America. Today the fort is a California State Park.

  2. Shame! Why do you so much like turning places of rest into dumps?! No wonder no one wants to travel to the Igor-n-Natasha land. Want our business? Clean up. Starting with your hearts if you have any of that left. And your brains, that you obviously have (witness the skillfully orchestrated Crimean takeover) but they are bent on evil.
