Belgian Royals Meet Russians
On 8 December the King Albert II and Queen Paola were happy to meet President Dmitry Medvedev and First Lady Svetlana Medvedev of the Russian Federation on a visit at the Royal Palace. There are reservations I have about the current regime in Russia but certainly it is a better creation than the Soviet Union was. In the past I have commented on Belgium and the Russian Empire which had a close relationship. SM King Leopold I served in the Russian Imperial Army against the France of Napoleon and of course King Albert I and Czar Nicholas II were put in the position of allies during the Great War.
