    In Forgotten Karelian Village, Frustration With Moscow Runs High

    VEGARUS, Russia -- The stream bounces gaily on its bed of pebbles as it passes through this tiny village in Russia's republic of Karelia, some 70 kilometers from the Finnish border.

    Up until 1939, the pristine, wooded area was part of Finland.

    Today, despite its proximity to one of Europe's most affluent countries, Vegarus is one of the myriad villages dying a slow death in Russia's provinces.

    Russian authorities are unpopular here.

    How about we bring Russia back to 1991 borders?
