I am wondering if Pikker humor magazine in Estonia is still around. One interesting thing about Estonia is that the language there is very similar to Finnish. Hungarian is also related to Estonian and Finnish. Go figure.

Do you happen to know why and when Krokodil folded? Has anything replaced it? Commercial reasons? I imagine it had been subsidized by the state if it wasn't profitable (although with 10 mil copies, why not?) and the new state won't subsidize it. We've got to remember that in the Soviet Union there was little if any advertising, and probably none inside Krokodil. Ah, the joys of subsidized satire! Only in paradise!
Super interesting story. Thanks for sharing it.
