Hi Dong Bei,

I've bookmarked your site, great shots and wonderful mindset, but am baffled by the linked shopping site for the Birds of Dalian. There is no option for English that I could find and my...

I think the Ukraine story is a fiction, a legacy of Khrushchev, a native of the Ukraine, granting the Crimea to the Ukraine while the Ukraine was a part of the USSR. So I do not see that situation...

Good on you for caring!
