I wonder how Sandra Roelofs is doing these days. Tensions between what Russia regards as a runaway state and the Big Northern Neighbour rose over the arrest of four Russian soldiers on Friday.
Today Russian President Vladimir Putin called it "a sign of the political legacy of Lavrenty Pavlovich Beria" - carefully chosen words.
Georgia-born Beria was responsible for a number of notorious deportations and political murders under Stalin.
I hope Coen can comfort his previous compatriot. Already looking forward to his reports from the state in turmoil.
