Of course they’re not the EXACT SAME people, but they are similar. Belorussians are more similar to Russians than they are Americans or Portuguese, so it’s not completely offensive to say that they are the same kind of people, because they are. Not completely, but still very similar in relation to the rest of the world.

There is no need for anger over this subject. Nobody was talking about governments and politics, so there is no need to bring it up to fight over it. Everyone is a patriotic for their own country; this is the internet though, there is no need to bring it up constantly.

Why can’t everyone just sit back, relax, and enjoy the beautiful pictures of Belarus? Why ruin it with arguments…

They just don’t get that there is an actual difference even though our nations have the same roots. But we took different ways a long time ago – the thing which you can’t understand. You always think that we have the same mentality, the same traditions, even some Russians think that for example Ukrainian language was “invented” after the collapse of the USSR. This is incredible, I heard it myself. Anyway, what I’m trying to say, that Ukrainians are not Russians and we are fed up of hearing that we’re your little brothers etc and I hope that Ukraine and Russia will never unite again. We have already 70 years of horrible experience being in the USSR. That’ more than enough. But what make’s me laugh is when I say that I love my country, Russians tell me that I’m a nationalist, when a Russian says that he loves his country – he’s a patriot. Unfortunately (for you), that will never change in your minds.

People in these countries are similar. I’ve been to Belarus, and everytime i was talking to locals and i could not understand who was before me: russian or belorussian. Maybe it because of that everybody there is speaking russian good.

So why do 18 year old boys have to be chased on the streets by army recruiters – well, they do not want to be a part of the ‘effective’ Russian army, which in reality means digging ditches, building datcha’s for their commanders and doing other meaningless things for two years. Firing a gun is hardly practised, as hard to believe as it might be.
In Georgia the officers even had to use their private cell phones to report to the base camps because the communications infrastructure is outdated at least 20 years.

The Russian army is not up to modern warfare and needs enormous financial injections. So save the rhetorics for your next Nashi meeting.

Homelessness is not a problem and there are a lot of people who take advantage of the system they don’t work ect and have a place to live basics provided for them. Most beggers I have seen hang around the public parks. You will see invalids on the trains, deaf people mostly selling books of word games and old magazines. I always buy a couple from them. I have never seen criminals, I hear their lot is bad. N ot undeserved either IMO.

And people recognize themselves as Europeans, not like in Russia…

Otherwise, this city is unreasonably clean like the capital of North Korea, I guess. However, I would love to visit there! :-)
