February 27, 2015, at about 23:30, in the center of Moscow near the Kremlin (Bolshoy Moskvoretsky Bridge), one of the leaders of the Russian opposition, politician Boris Nemtsov was shot and killed. We express our condolences to the family and friends of the deceased. In 2014, Germany bought 12.6 mln tones of Russian coal (over 25% of all deliveries from outside the country), the largest amount in the last nine years. Russia sells coal mainly to the EU countries and the Asia-Pacific region (24.1 mln tons in 1994, 153 mln tons - in 2014). "Leviathan", a Russian drama film directed by Andrey Zvyagintsev, won the Golden Globe for best foreign language film. It happened for the first time in almost fifty years! Probably, it can even win an Oscar in the same category. Good luck to the creators of this film! As new year is round the corner may your pockets be heavy and your heart be light, may good luck pursue you each morning and night! Happy New Year 2015 ! Tonight (December 4, 2014), the city of Grozny experienced the most massive attack of militants in recent years. During the battle, the Press House, one of the city's schools, and several other buildings were severely damaged. Nine militants and ten law enforcement officers were killed. More notes from Russia »
