The term Russian winter is often used to describe situations of prolonged dreariness, bitter cold, and extreme hardship. And yet, people endure. Within themselves they discover a secret strength. Or perhaps there is some reward that makes it all worthwhile, like bracing the snow and winter winds just to share a warming kiss.
After surviving many dreary decades under Soviet oppression, Russians are experiencing a new wave of anti-protest and anti-gay laws that seem poised to send their liberties and new freedoms back into the deep freeze. But love can't be stopped by the laws of small minded men no more than it can be stopped by the force of a Russian Winter.
