  1. 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.
