its so weird being in a place where aliya isnt a contender for a worlds spot. like even when she was injured she was still actively training/rehabilitation and she was in the discussion, like in 2015 it was like “aliya is injured but she’s definitely coming back” but now its like NOPE aliya is happy at home with her babby just chilling and it just feels like…….. her absence has a FEEL to it, you know? for so long she has BEEN russian gymnastics, and now shes not (hopefully she comes back and maybe its bc she hasnt closed the door on her career that i feel this way, like her comeback is a very real possibility, so who knows, we shall see)

Never forget that, on the 11th of July 1995, one of Europe’s greatest crimes against humanity-the Bosnian genocide-reached its peak with the brutal massacre of over 8,000 Muslim Bosnian men & young boys of all ages, and the the expulsion of 25,000-30,000 Muslim Bosnians that followed the very same day.

Never forget that this bloody extermination was strategically made with the intention of “cleansing” Europe of its ethnic Muslims, and is an act that modern day xenophobia & islamophobia still echoes.

Never forget that this genocide was part of a greater atrocious and vicious ethnic cleansing campaign that lasted, largely ignored & unrestricted, from 1992-1995. It included unlawful confinement, murder, rape, sexual assault, torture, beating, robbery, and inhumane treatment of civilians. It not only targeted political leaders but also intellectuals & professionals. There were unlawful deportations, unchecked shelling of civilians, unlawful appropriation of real and personal property by the government, the destruction of homes and businesses, and the destruction of places of worship.

Never forget.
May they rest in power.

Some time news from team russia can be sweet)) it's from Alexey Zaytsev and he says that if he (with his team) will win olympic medal, then he will dedicate it to his and Aliyas daughter Alisa :P also some smart words about Aliya etc. rsport(.)ru/bobsleigh/20170702/1122423944(.)html

‘For Aliya and me, the birth of our child is the most important event in our lives, everything’s fine, our daughter is healthy, of course, it’s a bit hard to cope at the beginning, but all parents go through this. If I will win a medal at the Olympic Games in South Korea, I will dedicate it to our daughter. The birth of a child is very motivating. It really gives you strength when you think of the family that’s waiting for you at home.’ - Alexey Zaytev

Aawww, that’s so sweet!
