My dismantled London home (in a van driven by trusted Estonian friends) should by now be rattling through the Baltic States heading for Tartu. I am selling my UK property but I must remain camped out in my empty house until at least mid-November until the paperwork is complete. Taking a chance that Magna Ursus Putinus (the Great Putin Bear) remains east of the border, I am settling for good in Estonia. I could never be called a "fair weather friend." I am glad the President of the USA came, quoted Marie Under, and assured us that we are not alone. My decision, however, is based more on sociological research. The Levada Centre is a Russian non-governmental organisation whose expert opinions appear in both the Russian and foreign media 2014 Levada polls on the Ukraine are based on 1,600 questionnaire responses from 46 regions. The March poll shows 36% of respondents saying they would "definitely" support direct military intervention in Ukraine: the August poll, however, shows the number down to 13%. The Russians have noticed that soldiers are coming back in body bags. This is a political development that even Tsar Vladimir cannot ignore .
