Word for today: Опричник, oprichnik. I will learn the suffix -nik, ник, and apply it in English. I will learn to spell: noodnik, refusenik, vatnik, and other -nik words. I will discover the relation of -ik (Bolshevik, etc.) to -nik. Inspiration: Sorokin, Day of the Oprichnik. And there is also мобик, mobik.
In other news I seem to have a lot of disagreements with people. I am for the Russian visa ban, especially in the Baltics and places that really feel they need it. I am not willing to say all Russians are “Nazis.”
