      I should know something about it - Poland is my birth country. ;)

        1. Wow !

          That sure justifies the invasion of helicopters, APC's, and armed and masked Russian " tourists. "

          1. What are the wines of Crimea/Ukraine like?

              never had them, but i've loved wines from both Georgia and Azerbaijan, so perhaps they are/can-be good...

              1. Unclear whether this initiative is to anesthetize Crimeans from from day to day doldrums, or to create a legitimate export market for quality wine. Time will tell. New vines and grafts take a LONG time to produce good grapes.
