I would ask how they are coping with the sanctions and if they really are turning back to religion ( Orthodox Christian)

Did you see a black person or other minority?

How is the internet and is it totally controlled?

Is the media really free, what were the headlines?

This could have been an interesting thread.
Funny how 'social security' has a shortfall...but never WELFARE!
Gimme a break.
Somehow, we can always afford ALL types of welfare (even for millions of illegal immigrants!), plus billions in foreign aid to nations that hate us...BUT...social security is a "problem".

Nah, the problem is the goobermint...Unknown AC.

The election of Donald Trump didn't cause the hatred displayed by the progressive liberal left and democratic party. The election of Donald Trump exposed it.

How unwilling to smile back they were, and able to go into deeper subjects quite quickly, and there is a poetic beauty of soul in them, somehow, and they ALL dress well.
In the cities that I visited anyway, St.Petersburg and Moscow.
The Moscovites were the more friendly.

I read the Russian classics as a girl, 'War and Peace' and 'Crime and Punishment' etc. so I've always wanted to see what they saw, and I was curious about how life was there, after communism.

Don't think so, although we stayed in airbnb places.

I was expecting more heavy officiousness than we got, though there certainly is a fair amount of it, crossing the border on a train to Finland, the Russian border security guy took ten minutes or so to scrutinize my friend's Australian passport, confer with a colleaque, and the Finn came in making a friendly joke, the difference was striking.
I didn't see any of that blue light b/s either.

 Quoting: Anonymous Coward 68493300


Anti-American - not in any obvious way, more like a pronounced confidence in their own culture, an unwillingness to speak English, even to cater to tourism with their signs on public transport being usually only in cryllic.
To me it seemed they couldn't be bothered to speak of Obama or Trump, or even Putin, or maybe unwilling to talk politics with foreigners, I don't know. We mainly spoke to taxi-drivers, anyway.

It really was great, thanks :)

The highlights were the opera in St. Petersburg, a jazz bar called 'The Hat'
the ballet in Moscow, cocktails at the Red Square, the Kremlin and the stupendously magnificent architecture, especially the churches.

Russians don't smile. At any rate there is not such a thing as pro forma etiquette.

No there isn't, the amount of smiling most Westerners do is quite nauseating, especially if it's not genuine. Russians do smile, it's rarer, but twice as close.

Moscow was very cosmopolitan, all races, and yes, rap could be heard on the streets.
Some homeless alcoholics, but no thugs, it was very safe to walk around at night.
