    Re: What does it mean "tropicalized"?

    Dear Ken,
    and other list members,
    I want it to be known that I am not a "Russian" in any sense:
    except that I am fluent in Russian language.
    
    I was born in Ukraine, and lived in Ukraine until I moved to the US at the age of 36.
    I have not spent in Russia more than 1 month altogether in my life (much less than
    in Germany, England or Turkey).
    
    I know that for most Westerners Soviet Union = Russia,
    and that most did not notice that SU dissolved into many states 23 years ago,
    and I did not care about this lack of knowldege much until 2014.
    
    But now, when Russia invaded my native country, I don't want to be called "Russian"
    anymore.
