Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
well, home is russia, of course. I stayed for a couple of years in moscow and generally it was ok. there were very cases of discrimination or abuse and i had many many friends of all nationalities. in far eastern city of Yakutsk where i was born situation of course was different, no discrimination at all. in fact after period of trouble in 1990 many ethnic russians and other europeans left this place and much more ethnic minorities moved in. so it became thoroughly asian city where local speech is more often spoken than russian.

the concept of home is good idea. maybe some more experienced writers than I can handle it. I really feel more at home here than in my birthplace, let alone moscow.
