Kaliningrad cosmopolitan Kant controversy.
Writing for a pro-Kremlin website, Andrei Kolesnik denounced the 18th-century German philosopher Immanuel Kant as a “Russophobe” and railed against a plan to name the Russian enclave’s airport after him. This is not the first time in recent years that Kant has inflamed passions in Russia. In 2013, a dispute over the correct interpretation of his philosophy was brought to an abrupt end when a man from Rostov-on-Don shot his interlocutor with an air rifle. So much for what Kant called “perpetual peace”.
