A Latvian posted a petition pleading Roman Abramovich to buy the country - and over a thousand people signed.
Then again, it's not a first; earlier this year 2000 Latvians petitioned for Swedish occupation.
All of which fits right into a particular Baltic tradition of sorts, in which an "Estonian Royalist Party" once got 7% of the vote, back in 1992.
In case you're wondering, no, Estonia doesn't have a royal family. The party suggested that the Swedish Crown Prince, Carl Philip, or British Prince Edward, would do instead. They politely refused.
