Natalia Antonova responds [1] to La Russophobe‘s recent post at Darkness at Noon: “Babushkas are soft targets. ‘They’re ugly and they smell!’ ‘They liked comrade Stalin!’ ‘They eat boiled cabbage!’ Please.

And no one, not even La Russophobe, can now judge who was or was not a ‘true Russian patriot’ – considering the full scope of the chaotic meat-grinder that is the babushkas’ history.”
