From Deutsche Welle. Russia is trying to require passenger data for everyone entering Russia, a violation of EU law, if not others.

From France 24. At 91, the director of Russia’s Pushkin Fine Art State Museum is still plugging along.
From France 24. Good wine in a can is sweeping the globe. A French start-up wants to do the same with only AOC quality wines. Sounds good to me!
From London Independent. A new whiskey distillery in England’s Lake District to produce single malt, possibly by the end of this year. Happy Christmas!
