- Chas prints an article on ethnic Russians in Latvia by historian Viktors Guscins
Chas prints an article by historian Viktors Guscins on ethnic Russians in Latvia. Mr. Guscins argues that Russians in Latvia are neither diaspora, nor post-colonial minority, because they resided in the country historically. The author believes that because of historical links to the country and the size of their community, ethnic Russians of Latvia could be considered not only as a national minority, but also as one of the state-founding communities of Latvia alongside ethnic Latvians and Latgalians.
