From Russia… With Indifference (2019)

My Original Letter to Progress Book

I was hoping that a kind of ‘time-travel’ scenario would develop when I recently sent this letter to modern (capitalist) Russia, and that I would receive a response from the Soviet Union! Alas, it was not to be. It appears that the modern Russian Post Office intercepted my letter without delivering it to the intended address. It was opened and my return address acquired. I did not even receive a response from the current owner of the propery, or an explanation of what had happened to this office of ‘Progress Books’. Although I am not sure, it seems that modern Russia is set on denying its Socialist past and carrying-on along its path of its capitalist counter-Revolution. What a sad loss to the world the collapse of the Soviet Union has been!
