Russia: Notes on the Crisis, Movies

Categories: Eastern & Central Europe, Russia, Arts & Culture, Economics & Business, Film, Labor, Travel

Megan Case writes [1] about her trip to Russia: “Our friends had stories of their workplaces downsizing, several had been given an extra “vacation” (without pay) or received a pay cut. There seemed to be fewer cars on the road, which is only good for traffic and the environment, but a sign of tough times nonetheless. In general, things felt more subdued than when we left eleven months ago.”
