  1. Neil Blonstein says:

    The Esperanto community in both Russia and the USA would be eager for your interview. As things deteriorated in Eastern Ukraine in 2014, dozens of Europeans, Russians, Ukrainians and a handful of Americans debated the crisis in Esperanto. I could not imagine having a similar dialogue (not all agreed) in English. The essence of the Esperanto movement remains one who believes in the message of Zamenhof. International friendship, at least via correspondence, if not face to face will proceed a stable peace. Did the Cold War really ever end?
