Yes, and I do not believe "pretending" not to know Cyrillic script and Russian is necessarily involved.  The person is most probably much more concerned about the music s/he hears, and ignores everything else as irrelevant.

It might be time to revisit Cassandra by Vladimir Tarnopolski!

It is clear from his many past posts, and the very nature of the links that he constantly provides, that he can read Russian to a significant degree. Definitely more than I can. I am merely familiar with Cyrillic alphabet but can easily make out the address / nature of the Sevastopol concert.

OTOH, the ignore list is always an option.

I think that the author of the latest posts not only understands the alphabet, but also the Russian language. I also think that many of the posts are inspired by Kremlin chauvinistic propaganda. For example, the recent mention of Kabardino-Balkaria. A small Islamic country in the Caucasus, whose population was deported almost entirely by Stalin and brought to the brink of extinction by Putin. Attributing Kabardino-Balkaria music to Russian/Soviet is insulting to say the least. The same with Tuva. Buddhist State of Turkich origin, annexed by USSR during WWII.
