Market study for the import of wood pellets from Russia to Finland:A penetration scheme of imported Russian pellets to Finland Irina Ratkovskaya
The renowned fantasy and science fiction writer China Mieville has long been inspired by the ideals of the Russian Revolution, and here, on the centenary of the revolution, he provides his own distinctive take on its history. In February 1917, in the midst of bloody war, Russia was still an autocratic monarchy: nine months later it became the first socialist state in world history. How did this unimaginable transformation take place? How was a ravaged and backward country, swept up in a desperately unpopular war, rocked by not one but two revolutions? This is the story of the extraordinary months between those upheavals, in February and October, of the forces and individuals who made 1917 so epochal a year, of their intrigues, negotiations, conflicts and catastrophes. From familiar names like Lenin and Trotsky to their opponents Kornilov and Kerensky; from the byzantine squabbles of urban activists to the remotest villages of a sprawling empire; from the revolutionary railroad Sublime to the ciphers and static of coup by telegram; from grand sweep to forgotten detail. Historians have debated the revolution for 100 years, its portents and possibilities: the mass of literature can be daunting. But here is a book for those new to the events, told not only in their historical import but in all their passion and drama and strangeness. Because as well as a political event of profound and ongoing consequence, Mieville reveals the Russian Revolution as a breathtaking story. 1. Language: English. Narrator: John Banks.

Parliament erreicht seine höchste Güte durch mehrfache Filtration. Seit Jahrhunderten ist Vodka die Seele russischer Genusskultur. Parliament ist in seiner Heimat Russland eine sehr beliebte Kultmarke, denn die Herstellung geht auf das traditionelle Urrezept aus der Zarenzeit zurück. Diese Urrezeptur gepaart mit modernsten Technologien machen Parliament zu einem außergewöhnlich reinen und unverwechselbaren Vodka aus erstklassigem Getreide und reinem, besonders weichem Wasser aus der 250 Meter tiefen, eigenen Quelle des Herstellers Urozhay, Moskau. Was ihn außerdem von anderen Premium-Vodkas abhebt, ist der biologische Veredelungsprozess nach der Destillation, die Milch-Reinigung. Diese ist ein Filtrationsprozess, bei welchem dem Vodka Milch zugeführt wird. Dabei wird ein Gerinnungsprozess ausgelöst, der dem Vodka auf natürlichem Weg ungewollte Mikrosubstanzen entzieht. **Allergene: Kann Spuren von MILCH enthalten** Importeur / Distributeur: Borco-Marken-Import Matthiesen GmbH & Co.

The son of Russian expatriates, London-based writer Alex Ostroff longs to publish a masterpiece. But his manuscripts find only rejection - as does Alex himself when London’s literary set unceremoniously toss him from a party. Heeding the advice of his exasperated agent, Alex finally writes about his own experiences. As he mines his childhood for inspiration, he becomes obsessed with finding the truth about his parents. In 1919, they fled the Russian Revolution for France, taking up with a Mephistophelian character named Felix Dumont and joining him in a mysterious import-export business that involved blackmail, betrayal and murder. Alex’s autobiographical novel, Troika, is a success, but the work makes Alex question his memories. And when he unexpectedly encounters Dumont while filming scenes from the book in a seedy bath-house, past and present intersect and Alex learns the dark truth behind the fictions of his life. 1.
