The great thing about individual one-to-one lessons is being able to tailor the classes to the needs of my research and focus of my work. Its been a stimulating couple of weeks, though the challenge of dates and academic language as a couple of the key topics covered has required some serious mental effort on my part. It was nice to end on something even closer to home, Katya having pulled out a political-history discussion program from YouTube that featured a debate over the events and historiography of the Soviet-Finnish War.
Time allowed for only a short dip into the full duration of the program, so I've posted it here for future reference and the hope it will be a useful resource down the line for hearing - and not just reading in the archives! - aspects of the war from the perspective of Russians today.
