Each year on 25–28 March, the Republic of Latvia has been in a state of sombre reflection. In every town and city, the oldest flag in Europe has flown at half-mast. It is not possible to stroll down a country lane, pass a church or government hall without seeing this symbolic national sense of pain.

In a stunning reversal of EU migrant policy, which favours the world’s least qualified benefit-bandits, Russia is set to relax immigration rules to favour the most talented immigrants.
The initiative will attract the educated elite of Ukraine and other European nations like the Baltic States. Most are in the EU sphere and are NATO hostile to Russia. The move will provide Russia with a stream of talent whilst denying their tormentors their best human resources.
NATO, an American army dependent upon European mercenaries, is aghast after a Russia-friendly party won the most votes in Latvia’s parliamentary elections, ahead of two populist parties.
