As the project takes its bow, Vladimir Lenin, Tsar Nicholas II, and others wish you a happy 1918!

Living here and now, we know it will be bloody and dirty, filled with crime and misery and hatred as Russia plunges into a civil war. But the country will endure and see greatness and strife, and hope for a better tomorrow.

And a happy 2018 to you all! May it be better than we dare to hope.
