Hi. My name is Dimitri, I'm from Samara, Russia. Thought that the day when the Curiosity rover took us to Mars might be a good day for my curiosity to bring me here. Especially considering that Atlas V rocket are equipped with Russian RD-180 engines . I am really curious about how people live in other countries and what makes us different.
Politically mostly indifferent but with natural disgust to oppression. Actually, political systems are mostly irrelevant, in my opinion. Political issues, though, are not.
I like history and until some time ago I ran a blog on Russian history (De Rebus Antiquis et Novis). Would be glad if I can answer your question
My English may sometimes look awkward, so, please, bear with me...
