I'm researching several Russia-related and problematic themes at the moment.
Why? I'm trying to figure this out. A solid explicit reason has yet to emerge. 
The themes include:
-Russian history,
-the Ukraine conflict and illicit and warlike opportunism on all sides,
-the Chechnya conflict and others,
-the polonium poisoning of former Russian spy Alexander Litvinenko,
-the assassination and work of Russian journalist Anna Politkovskaya,
-Russian organized crime,
-the Gulag,
-imprisoned then freed Russian oligarch Mikhail Khodorkovski,
-the wealth and holdings ex-Ukraine president Yevtushenko gained,
-Russian literature,
-and others, some yet to be discovered.
 I'm studying the language as well (not easy at my advanced age).
With this, I expect to post summaries of some of that research.
Why again? A solid explicit reason has yet to emerge. Maybe it's the spirit of inquiry with integrity ...

Честность - honesty, integrity
