Thank you for a very interesting post Helen. I think it very frustrating that Russia is in pretty much the same state it has been for the last 100 years or so. What a shame there has been very little if hardly any progress
:(:(

P.S Helen, don't fret if you make some people angry for having said all that, i'm sure you won't, they are your opinions and you are entitled to them!!  :) :)

Thank you

Jim i agree with what you say about it being widely known and accepted that the vast majority of Russians lived lives of squalor, slavery, deprivation, and abject poverty during the reigns of the Romanovs, but the fact is there still is milions in the same positon today! they got rid of the Romanovs but i can't see it changed much if anything made things worse (i.e. Stalin) but that's not for here.

I'ts ridiculous to say that Nicholas and Alexandra didn't care about the homeless etc etc. It's awful but what radical changes could you expect from them...?

At the end of the day they were not perfect, no one is and they made mistakes just like the rest of us.  

And to me having read and researched so much on the Romanovs they are more than just figures from history to me!

Thank you  :) :)
