So, I've noticed a trend over the last few month's in the blog's traffic. The vast majority of hits seem to be coming from domains ending in ".ru".

Of course, these are bots. (I am heartened to see that when you aggregate URLs to sites, twitter, meetup, and datasciencecentral are still close to the top.)

When looking at the geography of the traffic sources, I'm seeing a whole lot of... Ukrain?

Who knew stats were so popular in Ukrain? (Kidding.)

But seriously, this only started a few months ago. I'm wondering if the conflict in Ukraine has anything to do with this. It's conceivable that computers and servers are getting hijacked over there as part of the war. Anyone have any thoughts?
