Photos of Odessa, Plus Our Valentine’s Day 2017 Playlist

It’s Valentine’s Day and in case that matters to anyone anymore, your editor has put together a playlist of music made by some of our friends in Ukraine and Russia. We’re also throwing in some of our photos of the beautiful Black Sea port city of Odessa, where we occasionally hide out when we’re not in Belgrade. Outdoor dacha party season is right around the corner, and we hope this playlist gets you in the mood — at very least for whatever it is that those of you who aren’t tethered to your desk reading about Moldova’s possible future cooperation with the Eurasian Union are doing tonight. xoxo.
