Saw a Russian news article reviewing the article published in an Australian paper by an Australian writer/journalist who recently visited Moscow. Not sure why exactly the Russian media decided to retell the contents of that article, but a couple of phrases in it caught my eye:

> (on GUM in early 1980s): Weary women clutching "perhaps-bags" would wander desultorily along its dusty corridors.

> Russian patriotism and nationalism combine into a heady brew, but one built on narrow, brittle foundations.
