SPIEF DIARY: Back in the USSR — a surreal tour of the St. Petersburg forum

  • I found myself humming ‘Back in the USSR’ by the Beatles as I ambled through The Expoforum, my mind a jumble of Cyrillic letters
  • There was a media industry corner (not to be confused with the media center), where TASS, Gazeta, Sputnik news and RT nestled closely together as if for mutual support
