Do you desire to explore new frontiers, splash in shared ideas, fill your belly with the refreshing fruits of inspiration, and bask in the gentle rays of fond reflection?

Well, you can fuck right off. This, my friends, is not that place. This place is... The ShadowLands.

Reliable partners

2005:
“Russia is the most reliable partner of the Islamic world and the most faithful defender of its interests."
2009:
The Russian army has fought a three-day battle with insurgents in the Russian republic of Dagestan in which 20 people were killed. Dagestan, which borders on Chechnya, is a predominantly Muslim Russian republic in the Caucasus region. Various rebel groups are active there, often religiously inspired.
(BTW For our international readers, a primer as to why Australians love the name Dagestan.)
