Surviving the Soviet break up!

Author and journalist Helen Womack was at Clare Cottage, Helpston last night...

Helen has lived in Russia for 29 years and has lived through Gorbachev’s perestroika, Yeltsin’s reforms and Putin’s return to order and her account of how Russia has changed and survived was superb and well received by a large audience.
