You seem to know english better then most Americans here. You sure you are from russia?

As sure as I can be. It's difficult to think of a way to prove it to you though... Is it convincing enough?

I think, my level of English is mostly thanks to reading books. Because I can't remember a day when I studied it seriously.
 Quoting: Tamonten


Hey man. Thanks for the reply. I kinda was pulling your leg on this one ;) but thanks again for the confirmation.

I do have a question for you.
as ive seen many vids of russian people they come across like harsh and tough people.
How do most russians stand on immigration?
I mean how do you treat those people? I dont talk about muslims. But what about dutch people
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 70903740


Well, that's my way of dealing with jokes too. If it's inclear how to react, react in full seriousness. Even if you'll look stupid as a result, it's still better than not reacting at all. :)

Actually, it depends on region mostly. Obviously, the further you'll get from the capitals the more people there are suspicious of strangers - especially of foreigners. But, as far as I know, you'd rather have harder time with officials than with the common people.
You'd be expected to learn Russian language and some common sense rules though. That's one of the reasons we don't have immigrant ghettos some Western cities acquired lately.

Here's also reaction of one of my favorite pundits, Mikhail Leontyev on the similar question I asked him:

@ OP:

What is the average Russian person's opinion of "long legged macdaddy" Obama? Is it negative or positive opinion?

Over here in America most INTELLIGENT and SANE people have had "just about enough" of this joke of a monkey.

Of course the low-IQ and leftist types continue to worship Obama their master, and there is no doubt his moronic followers still make up majority of dumbed-down American population.

It seemed a right things emotionally then, while being a complete nonsense logically - and a personal disaster for many people who were forced out of their houses as a result. That's my personal opinion.

I also see the whole project of EU as some twisted Forth Reich and an attempt to covertly restore some of what Germany was before. But, due to American influence mostly, EU is impotent in many matters.

BTW, in Yuriev's futuristic book "Third Empire" a curious scenario of WW3 was presented. That after NATO and Russia entering the state of war Germany left NATO and entered a union with Serbia and Russia. I deem the book quite ridiculous in many aspects, but author does regard only those two nations in Europe to be worthy of respect.

Why haven't you guys ever built a decent or at least fairly cool car?

Every Russian car I've ever seen is block-like with almost zero style. Where's the Russian version of a Barracuda, Charger, Camaro, firebird etc etc.?

Because "The car is not a luxury, but a means of transportation" was the philosophy of Soviet car-makers.
It works? It's easy to repair? Then it's fine.
This - and a general lack of competition. In SU there was only one car of every class at a time. Some of them - as Lada Niva for example - were the best at their time... but were still produced even 40 years after that.

New Lada Vesta though looks fairly good IMO. Now that we have a foreign designer.

Here's the map of Russian regions. Red are regions that give money to Federal budget. Blue are regions that receive money from Federal budget.
For some recipient regions there are two numbers: light blue - amount of money do region receive per person (in 1000s of rubles) and dark blue - amount of money region receives as a whole (in billions of rubles).
The greatest recipient "per person" is Kamchatskiy Kray - 6 times more than Chechnya.
The greatest recipient in absolute value is Sakha Republic (Yakutiya) - 3 times more than Chechnya.

Paying off Chechnya? Another popular myth, huh.

Does that ever piss you off and do the regular Russian people resent that?

Well, we have to start from something, isn't it? Vesta is a good start.
Apparently, there's also a project named "Kortesh" ("Cortege") by GAZ with Porsche involved. They are engineering a special cars for Russian president and ministers. [link to www.autonews.ru]
There will be a civilian variation too.


Well, the whole matter is working on a pendulum principle. Even here the same can be seen: there are housewives that'll do a full makeup to visit a grocery store, men who'd rather not eat properly, but will buy another premium whatever... but it has declined lately, people are getting calmer and more self-sufficient.
I personally have three universal sets of clothing (one for a season) plus three demisesonal ones - it concludes my wardrobe. Well, except of the special occasions.
My family uses simple cars - Opel Meriva and Suzuki SX4 at the moment - because they are comfortable and easy to drive. All while being able to buy more expensive car... but we just don't need that.

Actually, I just thought of another reason why we don't have cool cars. Russian roads are quite a picture by itself. It's actually easier and cheaper for every Russian family to have a Jeep than to build and repair all Russian roads into something passable.

Re: I'm Russian – ask me a question. Be it about Russia or a personal one.
I’m on GLP for more than a year and quite tired of a bunch of popular misconceptions and myths you people have about my country. That’s aside from clear propaganda and some trolls (or shills – whatever).
So, I’m willing to answer some questions regarding my country to have a page to where direct all the recurring rubbish I encounter here.
As a short summary – I studied history (mostly Japanese though) in university-level college. Before that I was interested in programming. So, I can answer quite a wide variety of questions. Don’t expect however me having a lot of “special” knowledge. There is some of that too, but quite outdated and not that interesting.

BTW, I’m not tolerant at all. I’ll block for excessive swearing and trolling without any hesitation. I’ll answer any questions I can - even if I don’t like them - as long as they are asked politely. Don’t expect to like all of the answers though.

Well, the result in that book is quite interesting: [link to www.odnako.org] - a huge Russian Empire with Orthodoxy as state religion...

But yeah, the union between Germany and Russia is quite more natural thing that what's happening now. Pyotr Durnovo was telling the same a century ago. Also he predicted revolution and many other things that happened as a result of unnatural union between Russia and Britain: [link to www2.stetson.edu]

Whether it be royal background or not, I truly wish Germans in particular and Europeans in general to find a true leader. Because in such period of history the side without strong leadership is bound to be played by others. Also I wish that this time Anglo-Saxons to fail in making us fight among ourselves.

Actually, we do know that. And that's the reason why we didn't blame common people of Germany. Goebbels did his work well...
But, of course, it doesn't justify "Ost" and other performed and planned atrocities. Hence de-nazification policy after the war. Though it was corrupted by the fact that Allies were split then, which resulted in dragging out some of the Nazi criminals and using them against each other.

I don't think that in the modern state of the world there's a meaning to classical imperialistic (meaning "colonial imperialistic") policy. I'd say that the main faulty of what Germany tried to do during both WW1 and WW2 was that your ancestors tried to use British model of empire-building. The second mistake was bringing this policy close to your borders. Actually, the colonial policy only works if metropolitan and colonies are far from each other.
If you want to build a continental empire, you should behave like Russian Empire did - chip out small parts along its border, integrate them and then repeat the process.
In this sense the policy of economical integration of EU is much more perspective, I think. Though, introducing "liberum veto" into it and allowing Eastern European countries enter and to have a vote in it was surely a huge mistake.

What do you think of Texans? I've never been ugly to Russians. My dad stayed at a hotel w Russians in TX and brought home so many neat things they gave him. Plus they took care of him when they drank him under the table. And protected him fr a group of nondesirables who came to rob him. I still speak highly of them and only wished I knew them to thank them.
 Quoting: CountryWise


Well, in general Russians don't see any difference between different states of US. Most of us has never encountered any US citizens - let alone from different states. Just like most of Americans can't differentiate between people from Moscow, St. Petersburg and, let's say, Tomsk or Vladivostok.
Those who can claim some knowledge about US tend to have more sympathy towards South with its more traditional standing.

As a rule we tend to differentiate between government and people most of the time. Here's Dugin's insight on Russian disposition towards US and Americans: [link to klou.tt] He's not quite mainstream, but in this particular case he's right.

Your English is impressive. It is hard to fathom that you have never lived in US and can use English so well. I am originally from Belarus, was born during USSR and have been living in US for 14 yrs. You are very well educated. I am a female. Have you noticed that our people ( I still look at all the Soviet countries as one LOL) are more serious and not as outgoing/cheerful as westerners? I am married to an American and even though I am more outgoing than an average Russian person, I still get comments about me being too serious. Sometimes when I work with someone who associates with Americans only at work and comes otherwise from Russian family, even I notice that that person can be too straightforward, borderline rude, and unfriendly from first impression. I do not mean to say that our people are bad people, just that they sometimes lack social skills. Have you ever noticed that? Even my husband asked me visiting Belarus, why everyone looks angry. I never thought that way and after that comment I started watching it and noticed we do not smile as much as westerners. What do you think about this?

Re: I'm Russian – ask me a question. Be it about Russia or a personal one.
Have you ever driven across your country? Some people do that here in North america, one end of the continent to the other. Russia much much bigger though.
 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 62103152


There are two factors actually.
You are right, Russia is bigger: direct line between New York and San-Francisco is 4000 km or so, while the one between Anadyr and St. Petersburg is 6500 km. The real distance on earth is 9000 km or so.
And the second factor is the quality of roads. It's almost impossible to go all this way on your everyday car. You'll need a real Jeep at the very least. And roads are in this sorry state mostly because of the climate. Note that even Moscow is a bit further to the north, that Hudson gulf's southern edge. Roads are destroyed by the weather alone here.

But answering the first question... Well, the farthest I went from Moscow on a car in Russia is probably 300 km or so - Yaroslavl, Vladimir. But I've been in all even remotely historical places in this radius.
Also, I've traveled to St. Petersburg and Saratov by train and to Voronezh by plane. That concludes my travels inside Russia for now.

Thanks for replying. =) Watched a few videos of roads in Eastern Russia, yes they do look a little rough. The road to Yakutsk looks so cold and alone!

You need to work harder on it, I hate seeing any race of woman with a negro unless she is a negress. It's nasty and unnatural. I'm from Argentina originally and women there no not to associate with blacks, ecspecially those from the US.

Re: I'm Russian – ask me a question. Be it about Russia or a personal one.
Hello Tamonten,

I am the one from this thread "maybe the russians like to stay in germany after all.."

There is a specific question: what if I actually would welcome the russians to come to germany, as I think this is the only way left to clean the garbage of the country away...

Now, may I ask you, how could I possible let these russian soldiers know that in our house they are welcome for food and rest. Could I possible put a sign outside that says "welcome russian friend" or "finally you have come"
- in russian?

Anything to make them understand we are happy that they have come? But not in a frivolous manner, but really from the heart.

What could we possible do?

Please advise us.
Thank you.
