10 Reasons why Russians do not smile

Reasons why Russians do not smile

Posted on July 20, 2016 by Andrey

Everyone has certainly heard at least once that foreigners believe the Russian are very harsh people because, in their opinion, the Russian smile little. Well, the residents of Russia have a reason for this.

What smile can we talk about when you grow up in such harsh environment since childhood?

There are tanks in the street, next to the slides and swings…

…and sometimes there are planes.

If normal toys suddenly appear, they look like this. That’s for serious.

However, adults then have exactly the same problem.

Ask an American between this and then whether he would smile a lot if his staircase looked like this 9 months a year?

And if he had to get to work every day not in the personal SUV, but on a bus, would he also be light with a smile?

Particularly together with a Russian bear.

Generally, the transportation in Russia is poor. Vehicles work only with the pusher. This applies not only to cars. Unsmiling Russians also push taxi buses…

… And trolleys…

… And tanks because they can’t make long trips on such roads…

… And even airplanes.

    I live in USA:
    I know Russians in several Russian Federation cities and they smile and laugh all the time. I suppose there are some sad and depressed people in Russia but that is not everyone.

    Yes there is a fatalistic and realistic side to most Russians but they do have a soft, sweet side also. Want to know some nice people…get to know some Russians….wonderful people.

    Made me smile. Ivan19th is obviously not smiling, but – it’s a joke, see Ivan? But I guess you need a sense of humour to know that.
