Russians may have been the people in power. But the troops did not only consist of Russians. So they were Soviet troops.
In my home area, for expample, mainly Byelorussians were garrisoned...

Many non-Russian former Soviets feel insulted when they are put on the same level with Russians.
Some years ago on a party, I experienced how an Ukrainian woman (after some vodka) went for somebody's throat after he had accidently called her Russian. There was more than only one man necessary to hold her back. It was a formative experience.
I guess, you would think different and put more attention to those details if you had experienced something similar...

That was correct, the citizens of Soviet-Union differentiated the Russians and other nations, but for the rest of the world it was very much equal.

Russians were not the people in power for most of the time. Check the nationality of Soviet leaders on Wikipedia :)
Anyway, I do not find it very relevant to PIKO interview :lol:

Agreed. Let's discuss models, not nationalities.

I simply tried to point out the shallowness of some of Mister Wilfer's statements.
Such details are often good indicators for the seriousness of articles like this.

This is nothing special, look at diverse newspaper articles or model tests, very often far from the reality and far from the facts. Who knows what Wilfer really said, the editor has always the final words, maybe he removed also the TT portion - or did not even asked for. Did Mrs. Elisabeth Dostert know that Piko is active also on TT and recently also on N field? Probably not, but she goes to talk to a manager of that company...this what is generally shallow in today's media. This should make us more head-ache....

Yes!
It's a shame. But you're unfortunately absolutely right.

Recently?
In GDR, Piko was the only N-scale manufacturer. They discontinued their entire range of N-scale products after the political changes. What they've recently done, is to reactivate one of their traditional fields of activity.

I know, I have several old Piko N models, but after a long brake they just introduced the N- line. ( Wilfer has nothing common with the old production.)
