Well, today, 840401, this is at last the Socialist Union of Soviet
Republics joining the Usenet network and saying hallo to everybody.

One reason for us to join this network has been to have a means of
having an open discussion forum with the American and European people
and making clear to them our strong efforts towards attaining peaceful
coexistence between the people of the Soviet Union and those of the
United States and Europe.

We have been informed that on this network many people have given strong
anti-Russian opinions, but we believe they have been misguided by their
leaders, especially the American administration, who is seeking for war
and domination of the world.
By well informing those people from our side we hope to have a possibility
to make clear to them our intentions and ideas.

Some of those in the Western world, who believe in the truth of what we
say have made possible our entry on this network; to them we are very
grateful. We hereby invite you to freely give your comments and opinions.

Here are the data for our backbone site:

Name: moskvax
Organization: Moscow Institute for International Affairs

Electronic-Address: mcvax!moskvax!kremvax!chernenko

And now, let's open a flask of Vodka and have a drink on our entry on
this network. So:

NA ZDAROVJE!

Re: Now the time has relly come to a world.politics.

Really? Where is Reagan's opener? Does he have a terminal?
(Can he use one? Wargames, perhaps? Encrypted mail?)

As for the real discussions in politics: it was Mr. Chernenko,
not any single member of the Sovjet people, who was allowed
on the net April the 1st. Exactly as one would expect, too.
Let us hear more from you Mr. Chernenko...

Is this for real? Can we have confirmation from someone who is
recognized as being in a position to know?

C'mon, guys. Chernenko on April 1st; as in April Fools' Day;
as in call "Percy Knell" because I don't have the expertise to answer
a question of his.
