Russia is blamed for launching the war and there are even tracks to Putin.

Interesting description of the attacks and countermeasures that the Estonians took which appear to have been fairly sophisticated. Now that Russia is back in the war business, I think we can expect to see more of this... welcome to the future.

The atlas is available only in German, but this should not be a great difficulty for those who are used to reading maps. Cartographic documents about Islam are scarce or inaccurate. So this atlas will fill in a gap. http://www.euratlas.com/shop/1_islamatlas-gb.html"
