Russia Blog Roundup – October

If you’ve not been keeping up with the Russia blogs recently, this is your chance to gorge yourself on some of the best writing about Russia you’ll see.

This month’s roundup of Russia blogs is likely to be the last epic monthly roundup.  It’s far too much hassle to compile all these links in one go, and probably quite a lot for you to read in one go. 

So, instead, I’m going to experiment with shorter, weekly roundups from now on.

Blog News

First up, some gloomy news – Rubashov may have posted his last at Darkness at Noon.  But, if you really must finish, you can’t go out on a higher note than dedicating your final post to Kvas: Magic in a Bottle.  Rubashov loves Kvas so much, he even writes poetry about it.

????, ????!
??? ????? ? ???!

All I can say is: don’t leave us Rubashov – the world cannot survive without poetic talent like yours!

In other blog news.

Blog posts

Moving on to the real reason I write this post – to highlight the best blog posts about Russia that I’ve seen over the past month or so.

OK, that’s it for this month. Back soon with a weekly roundup.
