The sad post: Nuori Karjala closed

Sad news came today: Republican youth public organization "Nuori Karjala" ("Young Karelia") stops its activities and closes.

The reason is a court hearing which 7th of September declared "NK" to be a "foreign agent" organisation (=saboteur?) in Russia.

It's even sadder 'cause "Nuori Karjala" is one of the very few communities in Karelia that really cares of national matters - others just chat, "NK" does the job. For example, some years ago "Noid" managed to record and issue its first CD "Kukirikku" with the financial support of "Nuori Karjala" (it's indicated on the CD cover). And you can find a lot of people here it helped.
