latvia and the baltic russophobes

In a review of the book Sovjet Barnbarn by Swedish/Finnish writer Kalle Kniivilä, the good people at introduced their article with my little panorama of the old town of Riga (Vecriga), Latvia.

The book itself is based on a series of interviews that Kniivilä undertook with first and second generation Ethnic Russians in the Baltic States. It’s intent is to capture their thoughts and feelings since the break up of the USSR in a post-Crimean annexation era, and how they are perceived by the wider communities in which they live.
