Princess Zenaide Yusupov was born in 1861, the second daughter of Prince Nicholas Yusupov, Grand Master of the Ceremonies at the Court of Alexander II, and Countess Tatiana Ribeaupierre.
Irina contacted Crown Princess Cecile of Prussia, asking that she intercede with her father-in-law, but Wilhelm was unwilling to release the Yusupovs; instead, he offered them their choice of one of three country estates for the duration of the War, assuring them that they would be comfortable and protected.
Accompanied by Irina and their daughter, he left Petrograd for the family estate of Rakitnoye in central Russia; Zenaide and her husband quickly followed them, and the family passed a cold, uncomfortable winter in the isolated house, far removed from the tumultuous events that erupted in Petrograd in February of 1917.

 Abramovich Hustles Through Divorce Proceedings - Forbes.com   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Russian oil billionaire Roman Abramovich was a struggling businessman when he married Irina, his second wife, in 1991 and his entire wealth has been built up during the marriage, which should have given Irina plenty of bargaining power in the recent divorce settlement.
Irina has apparently been given cash and property worth between £1 billion ($1.95 billion) and £2 billion ($3.89 billion) out of her husband's fortune, though Russia's secretive legal system means exact details of the settlement aren't likely to be made public.
The privacy afforded to Abramovich by Russia's Byzantine legal system clearly meant a lot to the oligarch, who made his fortune in a series of controversial oil-export deals in the early 1990s.

 Rajan Menon: Russia's Quagmire
Russia’s industrialization had accelerated in the last decades of the 19th century but could not forestall the widening of the economic and military gap between Russia and Europe’s other powers.
Russia’s fragile democracy has been weakened by a political climate pervaded by the fear of terrorism; xenophobia is rising, with Chechens and other groups from the Caucasus its main targets and the police perpetrating, rather than preventing, abuse; civil liberties and press freedoms are being restricted.
Because Russia is telling the story, the terrorism associated with the war in Chechnya is portrayed as senseless violence perpetrated by bloody-minded Chechens against innocent Russians.

Russia's very variety and flexibility was her strongest suit, and with better governmental luck could have helped ease the country into becoming a truly representative democracy.

 Women's WORLD
The dramatic takeoff of women's literature in Russia, in the late eighties and early nineties, was based on considerable previous developments in Russian, Soviet, and post-Soviet culture.
During the Soviet period, women wrote poems, novels, and articles as often as men; in fact, their writing was hardly distinguishable from that of men in its approach and subject matter since both were constrained to follow the letter and spirit of Socialist Realism.
Many older women (in Russia, women, on the average live twelve years longer than men) suffer extreme poverty and beg in the streets because they cannot survive on their tiny pensions.

 "Beauty In Exile" by Alexandre Vassiliev - Scenographer, Costume Designer, Fashion Historian   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-16)
Peter the Great's inquisitive buffoonery at the court of the young Louis XV, Catherine the Great's efforts at pulling Europe toward Russia and those of her grandson Alexander I at pulling Russia toward Europe, the fashions worn by visiting empresses, all contributed something Russian to a west fascinated by the quasi-oriental charms of Slavdom.
Vassiliev's book, for all its inventorying of the effects of Russian culture on the west much of which culture was ironically a reflection of Europeanization carried out in Russia generations before is less a fond backward glance at frivolities of fashion than a sober memorial to the bravery and talents of the Russian exiles.
Still, there was a little happiness for Lud at the end: in 1982, she married a childhood friend, Pierre de la Grandière, and lived with him in the French Alps until her death from cancer in 1990.
