    Well, I posted him in a Latvian people thread on another forum and was kinda sure he was just a Latvian from Latgale and with a weird surname.

    He is also Russian-speaker and fighter for "Russian-speaker rights" in Latvia. It tells that he is one veeery suspicious "Latvian".

    He's really pro communism. I remember an interview with him before the language referendum and he said that he is completely against it.

    I did think of political affiliation as something really irrelevant, even in such big scale like this. Yeah, I know I must be naive, but he did mention him not being Russian himself in some interview.
