"…It’s the first summer that we are not going to live in Peterhof. We cannot drop our work in the hospitals. It would be distressing to live there and to think that there will be no yacht and no skerries. It’s a pity there is no sea here…"

- Grand Duchess Tatiana Nikolaevna of Russia. 2 June, 1915. (via historyofromanovs)

"I dare complain the least, having such happiness on earth, having a treasure like you my beloved Alix, and already the three little cherubs. From the depth of my heart do I thank God for all His blessings, in giving me you. He gave me paradise and has made my life easy and happy one."

- Nicholas in a letter to Alexandra; 1899. (via godsavethetsar)

Grave with beheaded bodies found on Ukrainian National Guard positions in eastern Ukraine……..

Russia is calling for an international investigation into the discovery of burial sites…….

The bodies of women were found with their hands tied behind their backs in shallow graves. One of the women was found beheaded while another is believed to have been pregnant at the time of her death. It is unclear how long they had been dead for before the discovery but all four bodies displayed signs of decomposition.

+ Latest from OSCE Special Monitoring Mission (SMM) + Weekly update from the OSCE Observer Mission at Russian Checkpoints Gukovo and Donetsk based on information as of 08:00. By the way, if you follow the news from the OSCE you notice that all months the profile of the people crossing the border remains unchanged, no weapons or military. (but who cares about words from the OSCE in these days).
