    United States has the same thing, only instead of tents we have trailers, and the people that live in them are called “white trash”. What are these hut-people called in Russia?

    • p1k3y says:

      Those houses are very rare. Only mongol look alike people use them in South of East Siberia. They dont have any special name. Those people prefer to live in their traditional houses. Not just because they are cheap.

      • Boris Abramov says:

        Many white hut peoples in Moscow. Because huts are mobile, I never get tired of living on the same street. I like it much more than my old flat. Now when I get drunk and need to pee, I can just open my door and go.

    • Pacific NW says:

      Yurts are popular with hippies and you can also rent them in certain campgrounds. Sherif is an ignorant to compare people living in a yurt with some beer-guzzling NASCAR reject and their trailor.

  3. Delicious says:

    I have one of these. The acoustics are awesome. My DTS 7.1 surround sound systems sounds fantastic.

  4. Pete says:

    Yo slap a 40″ plasma tv and a hot tub and you will totally be pimpin!

    Get one of those Russian Hummers to pull it and you will be popin bottles all over Siberia!

  5. Chukchi Man says:

    AFAIK this houses named jurt, yurta — nomad’s tent – these days are being used for funerals, etc. as a tradition… OR in the remote/high mountains pastures…

  6. Boris Abramov says:

    I wonna live in one of those huts with Sarah and Texas1.

  7. eye says:

    Yurt is the origin of the English word ‘horde’. As the Mongols moved into Western Europe from the East, the West Europeans were terrified of the sweeping success of the Mongol warriors. Since the Yurts were a symbol of the army moving forward, the Westerners referred to the approaching Yurt which in their minds became the Horde.

  8. Pacific NW says:

    It’s too bad Cheetahs may become extinct because of the opulants that kept them as pets and forced inbreeding upon them.

    • Pacific NW says:

      Yes, I know all about the population bottle-neck. It was caused by opulants that kept cheetahs as pets and hunting animals. Now, members of their species are so genetically similiar that one could take a skin graft from a one cheetah and apply it to another with no rejection whatsoever. Try that with a housecat.

  9. Bullwinkle says:

    What kind of plumbing facilities do these have?

  10. Chingau Wei says:

    I like these little things and they look extremely cheap and easy to build.

    I wonder if anyone has considered starting a project to house the homeless in these things?

  11. TexasTriangle says:

    actually these “huts on wheels” your talking about originated during the Qin Empire in China many many years ago…

  12. R. Sieben says:

    Nothing wrong living in a yurt. Not to far from where I live there is an acreage with a yurt residence. As building costs and real estate became prohibitive, I wouldn’t be surprised to see a yurt community in Canada.

    • Etienne says:

      Learn to read: he said “in Canada”. As far as i know, trailer parks are way more common in the US. I guess the great canadian weather has something to do about it.

  13. rusominimo says:

    Hey there! In Madrid we have the same problem, the houses are too expensive…..this yurtas are very nice, look at the inside paintings of the door.

    I really like your blog!! I´v started a blog with “minimal” russian language classes, and I´ll post your blog into it for my listeners, is that ok?

  14. Doug says:

    I remember reading in a college anthropology class many years ago that cultures with round houses also have a higher incidence of insanity. This same thing holds true for people who lived in round houses in the West or worked in a facility that had round walls. I do not know if this was ever disproven.

    • Bullwinkle says:

      In Russia one must also take into account all of the inbreeding.

      • Washington says:

        In Russia? Come on now, you know a well as I do “Inbreeding” is all the rage in rural south, especially Texas – you should know!

        • Pacific NW says:

          Just look at Jerry Lee Lewis, he married his 14 year old cousin (Which was legal throughout the southern states). Texans and southerners not in the media spolight behave even worse.

  15. Sauri says:

    Come on, I’ve seen those photos already, and its Mongolia, not even ex-USSR!

  17. Boris Abramov says:

    Well, maybe if you were to leave this this country, you woul’d not have so much money :)

    • redwhite&blue says:

      you would have more money if you stopped drinking, comrade!

      • Boris Abramov says:

        I don’t drink, I have enough money and I’m certainly not a comrade lol :)

        • redwhite&blue says:

          are you a new breed of counter-culture Russian? Like those hippies who don’t eat meat?

          • Boris Abramov says:

            YES :)

            • redwhite&blue says:

              go to Estonia you fake Russian.

              • Boris Abramov says:

                Ok :)

                • Boris Abramov says:

                  But make shure they don’t put me in a gas chamber or burn me alive. It funny how they brought all the Soviet “criminals” to “justice” but havn’t brought “ONE” Nazi criminal before the law.

                  • RedWhite&Blue says:

                    What are you talking about? The biggest Soviet criminal is the president. HEIL PUTIN! Boris, you would sell your mother out to Putin wouldn’t you? You little Hitler Youth.

                  • Boris Abramov says:

                    Oh I know why, becuse all the remaining nazis are now in Estonian governmemt. Why should they prosecute one of their own? BTW, my grandfather and pleny other Jewish friends who he knew, were killed in the gas chambers similer to those that Estonian “freedom fighters” helped to build for Nazi Germany.

                    You think you’ve done Jewish comunity a great favor for allowing the First ever synagogue to be build after the Holocaust? – YOU HAVE NOT! Jewish comunity will NEVER forget all the atrocities committed by Estonia, until the perpetrators are brought to justice and there will be a public apology from the Estonian government!

                    Go night my Nazi friend, have nice dreams..

                    • RedWhite&Blue says:

                      What are you talking about? The holocaust never happened. Don’t you read any Aryan newspapers? I’m sure you would know since you live in Russia. There are tons of neo-nazis there. Who are you preaching to btw? If memory serves me correctly, I haven’t said anything racist. Btw, Orthodox Jews have their fingers deep into Nazi Putins pockets. I suggest reading this weeks NYTimes article on it. In Soviet Russia, apology comes from you!

                    • John from Kansas says:

                      Please post link (once will be enough thank you).

                    • RedWhite&Blue says:

                      Here is the link, John from Kansas.

                    • John from Kansas says:

                      That says a lot about you. Do you love God?

                    • John from Kansas says:

                      That’s why he frequently changes his name.

                    • Boris Abramov says:

                      I realy hope he is not Texas1. I honestly expect more from him.

                    • redwhite&blue says:

                      don’t compare me with texas1. he’s a liberal.

                    • Texas1 says:

                      I’m not liberal or conservative.

                    • redwhite&blue says:

                      these ruskies think we’re the same people.

                    • Boris Abramov says:

                      No! I refuse to believe! I cannot believe that Texas1 could have so much hate towards Jewish people. Texas1, please tell me – you didn’t make these awful comments.

                    • redwhite&blue says:

                      Boris! I assure you that texas1 and I are not the same. Have faith, buddy! Let’s not start another cold war! I am not an anti-semite or a racist (don’t know about texas1 tho) I don’t know how anyone got that idea. Please don’t sully my good reputation by saying that I am texas1!!! God Bless!

                    • Chaim says:

                      Redwhite&blue/Texas1 your sister has her legs wide open, go attend to her before she chooses her other brother over you. Hurry! Hurry!

                    • redwhite&blue says:


                    • Pete says:

                      Your jewish and in Russia? I thought they all came to America? Just about all the russians that I know here are jewish.

                    • Boris Abramov says:

                      Are you saying there is no Jews in Russia? Now you are being just silly.

                    • redwhite&blue says:

                      there are Jews in Russia. However, a lot of them left for Israel after the Cold War. I see a lot of them immigrating to the US as well.

  18. Texas1 says:

    Boris Abramov said he has one in Moscow.

    • redwhite&blue says:

      Boris’ teepee is tie-dyed into psychedelic colors. It also has a vodka stream flowing next to it.

  19. Bullwinkle says:

    They like to cook on big rock too with big meat things.

  20. wackyruss says:

    Those are NOT huts. They are yurts. Yurts are were used in Kazakhstan by the nomadic peoples therein. They are also found in Mongolia and are known as gers.

    Yerts are awesome! I would like to live in a yert!

  21. Doug says:

    Not to change the subject off of personal insults and vendettas, but do these people ever roll up their houses and put them in a washing machine?

    • redwhite&blue says:

      due to the constant presence of vodka inside and near the huts, no cleaning is necessary. the fumes act as a sterilizing agent.

  22. Noggin says:

    Thats cool looking, if they throw in that anchient looking art style, yan live in it and feel the anchient history in what u r doing

    trailor parks in america is just ugly poverty

    • redwhite&blue says:

      don’t badmouth america, you ignorant liberal. why don’t you and boris go join some estonian hippie commune. my trailor has directv and 3 easily accessible gunracks just in case i see my pinko steppin’ on my property. THE SOUTH HAS ARISEN!

  23. Noggin says:

    culture in russia
    cheap money walmart in USA

    • Boris Abramov says:

      Ha ha, what a dumb monkey. Hey, don’t forget to vote for Bush again :)

      • John from Kansas says:

        Dream on Schiklgruber. Cheney can’t run again because he has alredy served two terms as President.

        • RedWhite&Blue says:

          Good thing there is no rules on Vice Presidency. I hope McCain wins this one and sends Obama packing back to boarding school. Cheney can run the country again through McCain. Why do you hate America, John from Kansas? Don’t you love God? God loves you.

          • John from Kansas says:

            Cheney is President, and I have no doubt that Cheney would run the country through McCain. I have no problem with America, only the phony patriots who are destroying us with greed and coruption. God feels the same way.

          • Noggin says:

            America despises Bush and Cheney and the repiglican party has commited political suicide by having Bush as its head honcho

            Democrats will win hands down, which Democrat is the question

            • Boris Abramov says:

              Lets hope american people will be smarter this time. Just a tip; – keep redncks as far as possible form the ballot papers.

              • redwhite&blue says:

                Unlike Soviet Russia, we allow all citizens the equal opportunity to vote in the US.

                • Boris Abramov says:

                  People like you should be in prison for Hate crimes and denying the Holocast. No wonder they keep people like you in Texas, as far away from civilised population as possible.

                  • redwhite&blue says:


                    Although Kazakhstan a glorious country, it have a problem, too: economic, social and Jew.

                    I don’t even live in TX. If I did I would have a name like texas1. I was being sarcastic about the holocaust. I’m not dat unedumacated.

                    • Washington says:

                      No you not “unedumacated” you are just uneducated. Boris do not don’t steep to his level, he belongs in the zoo.

                    • redwhite&blue says:

                      You’re exactly right, Washington. I am ignorant because of the way I was raised. If I was in a more diverse environment, I would not have turned out this way. Unfortunately for you, I was raised in a zoo. My parents were monkeys.

                • John from Kansas says:

                  But you said you would rig the voting machines to favor the facists. How is that allowing all citizens the equal opportunity to vote?

                  • John from Kansas says:

                    You have defined yourself rather well. What you believe to be sophisticated humor is just sneering, caustic remarks.

    • John from Kansas says:

      What are you snorting?

  24. Bullwinkle says:

    RedWhite&Blue, don’t you have some homework, zits to pop, or a busy street to play in?

    • RedWhite&Blue says:

      Unfortunately, no. Believe it or not, I graduated college and am studying for the CFA exams. I’m part of the Great American Multi-National task force poised to take part in the greatness of globalization. Go Team Bush! What about you? Shouldn’t you be hugging some trees?

  25. John from Kansas says:

    Cheney can’t run again because he has alredy served two terms as President. Dream on Schiklgruber.

  26. Texas1 says:

    Red White & Blue is probably in jail. He definitely didn’t go to college.

    • John from Kansas says:

      But you just said “…I graduated college and am studying for the CFA exams”.

    • John from Kansas says:

      You are talking to yourself again.

      • Texas1 says:

        I wouldn’t slam myself. I’m not RedWhite&Blue. RedWhite&Blue is a neo-Nazi wannabe.

      • Washington says:

        Just shows how pathetic Texas1 realy is. Mind you, I’m not surprised he has conversations with himself. He hasn’t got a job, girlfriend and incedentally life, all he has is his trailer with internet access, so that he could spend every day speaking to himself. I know, we would all feel sorry for him, only if he wasn’t a sick racist as well as smelly trailer trash!

        We don’t mind a dumb redneck on this site, its funny we could all lough at him, however no one wants to hear your anti-Semitic and racist sentiments. No one likes you Texas1, go away!!

    • Pete says:

      Yo I gragitated last month!

      Wit a degree in PIMPIN!

      FO SHO!


  27. John from Kansas says:

    Very unique and efficient dwellings.

  28. redwhite&blue says:

    Hahaha. I’m not texas1.

  29. Dolph Lundgren says:

    texas1… I vil grush ju, ju puny american.

  30. ChyeKyo says:

    OMG! *_* Very COOL and nice *_* My fathers have and caravan but I hate it, I prefer my little camp tend *_* Is the best!

  31. Boris Abramov says:

    Where is my beautiful Sarah? :(

    • Sarah Abramov says:

      here i am, sweetheart!

    • Texas1 says:

      Where is your sister? Is she ready for the sexy time?

      • Boris Abramov says:

        I don’t have a sister. Texas1 did you realy make these awful comments about the Holocaust?

        • redwhite&blue says:

          omg. I can’t stop laughing at what is being written on this forum. texas1 and I are totally different people. I think it is hilarious that people think we are the same.

          Boris, you didn’t answer texas1’s question though… Is she ready for the sexy time???

          Boris: This is Sarah. She is my sister. She is number-four prostitute in whole of Russia.

        • Washington says:

          Boris really, for a Jew you seem to be a bit naive. Just look at the time sequence, language and the general objective of the comments made by Bullwinkle and redwhite&blue. Texas1 IS Bullwinkle and redwhite&blue.
          He used these names to express his true HATEFUL RACIST opinions! If I were Jewish, I would be truly offended.

          • Boris Abramov says:

            I am offended. And it just proves that my preconseptions about Texas1 and rednecks in general were right. I guess I was a bit naive..

            • Texas1 says:

              Boris, I am offended that you don’t believe me. C’mon, does this person even write like me? You should know my writing style by now. Also, I think this person posted a few weeks back in a post section and I told him to get lost then. Usually, I don’t attack anyone without first being attacked. In addition, I’ve always included enough absurdities that a normal could not possibly take my comments seriously.

              Anyway, I have suggested to methods to show that this person isn’t me. So either provide some proof that it is me or stop blaming me.

          • John from Kansas says:

            The proof is in your comments. Would you care for some crow?

        • Texas1 says:

          No! I would never make such comments. You run this site. Look at the IP’s and do a trace. My guess is that they aren’t even from Texas.

  32. EliseiZorine says:

    well .. i cant i dont speak russian & so doesnt texas1 & most of us; by the way texas1 does look like eblan!!

  33. Washingotn says:

    You sound like a rally naive little boy who watched far too much Fox news. You have never been in Russia, have you?

    Ok, why does Russia under Putin keeps “Falling and Falling”?
    As far as I’m concerned the avarage salary keeps on increasing and increasing, GDP per capital has increased dramatically form the Yeltsin years, foreign investments are increasing every day, russians are much happier under Putin then they ever were under Yeltsin, mafia and corruption of the 90’s haS virtually disappeared, Russians are enjoying foreign holidays, foreign cars, fashion, etc, russian people can start up enterprises without the fear of the mafia and the need to pay protection rackets. Also, if you have some initial capital there are great undiscovered business opportunities.

    Honestly man, if you go to Moscow or St.Petersburg you will see the bigest amount of luxury cars, apartments, designer shops you ever seen in any city of the world. Modern russia is not about Putin of fake western democracy, it’s about MONEY MONEY AND MORE MONEY! If you have a brain in moderen russia, you will go very far, and that’s what I like about this unique country.

    I suggest, you finish school, ask your dad for some money and go see what russia is realy like, and speak to some people before making totally groundless and childish comments.

    Don’t forget to finish your homework – its bedtime soon!

  34. Texas1 says:

    I think it is Borris/Pacific NW/John from Kansas and FAO. He couldn’t find anything new and interesting to post so he decided to create this drama.

  35. John from Kansas says:

    You can distribute your photo tomorrow. You are tired and need some rest. Have you poured that shot yet?

  36. RedWhite&Blue says:

    you must be texas1.

  37. wstm says:

    They are probably Yakut Turks of Sakha Republic, North-East Russia… These yurts were so common. Many Central Asiatic nomad nations (Turks, Mongolians and others) used them in past…

  38. Zinn says:

    You are totally wrong here. These pictures are taken in the capital city of Mongolia, Ulaanbaatar.

  39. VIKTOR says:

    Russian huts?? Who the hell provides all this information??
    Those are typical mongolian huts, used by most asian countries. I mean even look a the picture, they all look asian! God I hate this website..

  40. sancho says:

    eeeeey!!!!!!!! you must be kidding! its not russian at all. its mongolian “ger”!!!

  41. nk says:

    Hey guys those white homes called GER …its a world number 1 movin home. very comfertable easy to built and pack …warm and everything

  42. nk says:

  43. Once your business is launched it is only a matter of imagination as to how far you can go! If you need money now, like I mean in the next hour, try what I did.
