"It’s interesting that the government is showing no obvious signs of life. It is difficult to tell where the government is, or who is even in charge. This is something new. It’s as if the Prime Minister (I can’t even remember for the moment who it is) has died at home in his apartment."
Zinaida Gippius, Russian poet, playwright, novelist, editor and religious thinker, one of the major figures in Russian symbolism.
