  • Most of the Russians I've known have been very nice, generous, kind, welcoming, etc. I've known a bunch, too; Russian was my first foreign language. :) There are exceptions in every society and culture, of course.

    As in the USA, but in a different way, Russian social and cultural life is these days being shaped (negatively for the most part) by very biased, propagandistic media. This is unfortunate and will continue to stand in the way of more open-minded engagement with the outside world, for both countries, I think.

      "Also a lot of countries have gained independence while under the control of other nations"
      I am pretty sure 100% of them did. You can't get independance if you are already independant 😊

    • @JuicyBrain I meant countries that weren't controlled "gained independence while under the control of other nations."

      I'm not sure the exact term for the country while under Russian rule but they were a country before and after from what I understand. I think Russia kind of occupied it like eastern Germany.

Have an opinion?

  • I have to live with Russians and I'd say that mostly they're fine people. Friendly even. They have a sense of comraderie. But some of them, urlas we call them, can be the worst scum you'll ever meet.

    Oh and Eugene don't bother answering please. I ain't got time for your bigotted shit.

  • Nice when you get to know them.

    I'm Eastern Orthodox and so spend a lot of time around Russians. As an outsider being a Mexican-American, I've found it interesting to observe them and learn about their culture. The impression I get is that they seem to be very clan-like--close to those within the clan but wary of those outside it. Despite being different, I think I've made it into the clan and thus I can say they are pretty nice people. Again, they're just wary of outsiders after years of the big-brother-is-watching Soviet culture that they suffered under. The Cold War stigma toward them in America hasn't made it better either.

    • yeah most russians are racist. but im one of those russians that is more open minded and get along with black people perfectly (:

  • I really can't say I know some like some of the people in their government are quiet bad but Russians as a race or people *shrugs* no clue I've never met any in real life, don't know if I ever will or not.

  • As someone whose studied Russian for the past 2 years from Russians, they can be either like regular people. Most people just think they're mean because they don't show emotion that much, but that doesn't mean they don't feel

  • I met Russian girl and she was really nice, she tried to teach me how to write some words in Russian but I failed completely.

    I've always they are very strong, very crazy and good drinkers. I didn't know about their patriotism until I met Eugene, Russian gager.

    I don't think they're bad or good. Because some are good, some are bad, same with every country in the world.

  • Really depends on region and age.

    I've met some fellow Russians that I absolutely despised while others were lovely.

    I grew up to be very "unRussian" in a lot of ways, so I'd probably be a bad example. But if you wanna have a poor opinion of us, you're welcome to read some of my comments on GAG.😉😂

  • I am Russian and I would say compared to some other nationalities some Russians can be very rude. I wouldn't say all because everyone is different here but typically its normally the men who can be very rude, Russian women can be rude too of course but a lot of people from other nationalities have felt that Russian men was less friendly and easygoing compared to Russian women

  • im mostly russian, and yeah some of us are really nice, but honestly most are racist aff. and the older generation is too traditional. yeah we love vodka, thats not just a stereotype, but we're also hardworking people. i love being russian but honestly i can't STANDD some russian people, especially guys. but we all do have like some kind of special bond, russians usually stick together.

  • Well it really depends on the person not the country. People think Russia is bad from the movies and games and Putin. But just because Russia has a president that other people call mean does not mean all the people will be. Thats like saying if Trump became president people would say "Is everyone in america rich and crazy?" No.
