“Damascus is the “Stalingrad” of Russian diplomacy. After years of geopolitical withdrawal, Moscow has chosen Syria as a way to revive its image of power in the world. “Not one step back” is the Kremlin’s new strategy, as it was for the Red Army along the banks of the Volga river during World War II.

The undeclared objective is to prevent the West from establishing a no-fly zone or a naval blockade of the regime of Syrian President Bashar Assad, as was done for Moammar Gadhafi’s Libya.

A 33-metre Foucault Pendulum, which demonstrates how the earth revolves, has been installed in Torun, birthplace of astronomer Copernicus, the discoverer of the heliocentric universe. FoucaultWikipedia
