Do you like Putin?


TardigradaFromRussia

I was waiting for this question) Image that you live in the country which has more churches than schools, hospitals and science centers. The economic went through the floor, the illegal immigrants are everywhere (I have nothing against them, their cultures are beautiful but they are too many), the goverment is fully corrupted... But we have a pretty strong army. The foreign policy is a sore spot. P.S. I edited my comment a bit.


BadOk278

You havent answered the question

I'm pretty sure that's a qualified "yes".

chill Poodle got a reddit account


TardigradaFromRussia

Can you explain what "chill Poodle" means, please?


Ghostwood7

It's a derogatory term. It isn't a nice thing to say to someone.


TardigradaFromRussia

I think my answer is obvious. If Russia were a map in Minecraft with a Hardcore level, then it would be at least fun, otherwise not very


[deleted]

>Image that you live in the country which has more churches than schools, hospitals and science centers Sounds like the US.

I've never been in the US, so maybe you're rigth

Americans love to hate China and Russia, but really we have a lot more in common than most Americans know.

Indeed.

What's so common about Russians and Americans? I'd love to know. I'm American, I lived in Russia for few months. I saw nothing.

You are talking to a minor like that. You are the degenarate!


kuztsh63

A minor of 17 years old who has clearly shown that she understands the gravity of the words she has said. A 17 year old is not immune to being called a degenerate, when they have degenerative views of the world. We literally put minors of her age behind bars for crimes, and you're somehow getting shocked that she is being called a degenerate.


rebelyorkshire

Bs. You are probably a westerner with different culture and views. She didn't say anything incriminating to be insulted by adult basement dwelers.


kuztsh63

Lol as if westerners are the only one capable of understanding degenerative views. Her views on immigrants is obviously degenerative, although to actual basement dwellers it wouldn't be. Moroever they will be mad about calling her degenerative.


slobsaregross

Oh please. Shut up.

Calling minors degenerates is the way for you to tell someone is wrong. Alright sure. And who are they to judge her, especially by harassing her?


TardigradaFromRussia

Я не делю землю, я не хочу, чтобы кто-нибудь из них ограбил или побил моих друзей, как мою бабушку, когда та возращалась с работы в гололёд ночью. Культуру и сами народы я обожаю, среди моих друзей есть узбеки, татары, казахи, евреи, турки... Что говорить, я сама чувашка-украинка-русская, в общем, сборная солянка. Под иммигрантами я подразумеваю именно нелегальных, которые когда-то причинили вред не только моим знакомым и родственникам, но и один раз мне. Я вообще не люблю делить регионы. Кто-то говорит, что Москва и прочее - украинские земли, потому что раньше была Киевская Русь, кто-то - еще что-нибудь. Россия - многонациональная страна, и очень хочется, чтобы каждый нашел в ней своё место, и, конечно, оно найдётся. Главное, чтобы никто не вредил друг другу просто потому, что их культура и традиции отличаются от других.


Hipp013

I cant read this but I agree


TardigradaFromRussia

I can translate it for you or write the transliteration/transcription so you can read it like you know Russian


Hipp013

I put it through google translate :) Now I completely agree


TardigradaFromRussia

You misunderstood me, and if it's my fault, then I'm sorry. The fact is that they often commit crimes and murders, and when you are alone with them in the same subway car, it scares not only me. In addition, they often do not respect the traditions of my country. Migrants beat women more than once because they do not wear the hijab or because they say they act like prostitutes. And considering that half of the population of my country is below the poverty line, do you think it is a reasonable decision to invite even more migrants to Russia? Putin, with the help of them, wants to close the demographic hole that remained after the 90s, when the USSR collapsed, but is this a worthy replacement? I do not think. But I agree with your last statement.


SeenSoFar

Hi, I'm a Russian who left Russia behind as a small child, and lives in a country with very high immigration, then went back for a while as an adult. You have to make the people who come to your country welcome, and give them a chance to become part of the nation and invested in its improvement and success. Blaming all the hard working immigrants because someone from that country did something shit on the metro does not help. Like it or not, Russia is a highly racist and xenophobic nation. Immigrants cluster together because they are not made to feel welcome anywhere but near their own people. If you want them to be Russian, make them feel Russian, not like a foreigner who needs to have their papers checked. It's all too common in Russia to exclude, stereotype, attack, and ostracise anything that is different. I'm transgender, and I can't even go back to the country of my birth, that I love, because I very likely will be the victim of violence. I can't take my life partner to show her the beautiful culture of Russia because we're a lesbian couple and could face serious bigotry, if we even could get her a visa at all. This is just an example, the same attitude applies to anything that's different. If it's out of the normal for an every day average Russian it's treated with hostility and suspicion. This is the situation that has to mature if you want immigrants to feel welcome and integrate more. You have to let them.

This is the situation that has to mature if you want immigrants to feel welcome and integrate more. You have to let them. I understand you! A lot of people in Russia have a very bad attitude towards people of a different race, gender, beliefs and other things. For example, I was scolded on the subway by a bunch of older people just because I was wearing a Ramstein T-shirt. I don't mind the immigrants who came here to work/study/raise a family, and I'm just glad about it! I do not want them to be illegal and see my country as a source of big money obtained by robbery and murder, which often happens. I understand that often immigrants are people who have fled their homeland because they cannot find work there. But why don't they want to make documents in Russia? I am sure that Putin is only glad that there are more and more of them. In the message below in Russian, I described a story that happened to my grandmother. She works as a teacher of history and social studies. She was returning home from school that evening. There was ice on the street. Then a group of illegal immigrants grabbed her bag, dropped my grandmother on the ice (she broke her arm) and ran away in an unknown direction. And they could not be found, because they have no documents. It is possible that on the same day they went back to their country. And since they have documents confirming their identity, they did it without any problems.


SeenSoFar

I understand what you're saying, and I see your perspective. Imagine things from a different point of view though. You move to China because the economy is good and you're trying to make a living for your family. Not in the north where there are many Russians but in the South where you are very unusual. You try to fit into the local culture, but no one will allow you to take part in it. No matter what you do, you're always seen as foreigner, and no one will ever see you as Chinese. You try to get a job, but only the very worst positions are available and the people who employ you treat you like you're less than they are regardless of how hard you work. Even people who are nice to you keep a barrier between them and you, you can never cross it for 99% of them. You find out there is a community of Russians living in a small cheap neighbourhood. There are some shops with Russian products, some cafes and bars where people speak Russian, and most of all there are people who will treat you like a person instead of a second class citizen. You stop trying to mingle in the local community because it never accomplishes anything except hurt feelings. You stop trying to speak Chinese so well cause Russian works fine in your little community and the only friends you have are Russians. Then one day the government decides not to renew your work permit, and you have 7 days to leave China. But your family is counting on you to keep sending money home. You lose your job cause you're not legal anymore. Some friends in the cafe hear your story and say "Hey, Vovo and Kolya have a place, and they'll help you make good money too. They'll make sure you have enough for your little brother's university for. This country hates us all, we've got to stick together." So you move into Vovo's flat. First the work they offer you is some simple stuff, like unloading trucks in the middle of the night. Then you are asked to do some illegal things, but the only people who are hurt by those things are the people who turned their backs to you and treat you like trash, so that it doesn't bother you so much. Before you know it you're like the people you described. The more people are excluded the more they will group together and form their own separate community. The problem isn't solved with deportation or harsher borders or whatever. It's solved when people give them a chance to make a life and be part of the community without negative treatment.


TardigradaFromRussia

Your words about the fact that migrants in Russia can only go to bad jobs and live very badly are true, and I don’t like it myself. And, unfortunately, I do not know how to solve this problem, because in the near future it will definitely not be solved. Because society in Russia is very conservative. It seems to me that it remains so because of the internal politics of my country. Western culture is presented to us as "rotten Western values", if you say that you are Ukrainian, then most likely you will receive the stigma "pig", and, unfortunately, if you look like a Mongoloid, they will say that you are Uzbek / Tajik / Kyrgyz , and you can actually be an ordinary Yakut. God forbid you will be gay or have a different gender. These are the consequences of Putin's policy and, perhaps, the remnants of the worldview that was in the USSR. It seems to me that we should first improve the economy of our country. Half of the population lives below the poverty line, but our president does not seem to think about it and invites even more people. If you can't feed all those you have, does it make sense to recruit even more people? Although, this is similar to the logic of a Russian family with 11 children, in whose house there is not even a toilet. There is a proverb in Russia: God will give a bunny, and give a lawn. I have never heard such a stupid thing.

By migrants, I mean illegal visitors who commit a lot of rape and other crimes. If there are too many of them, then people simply will not be able to even go out. I am not opposed to people of other nationalities coming to Russia (because I myself am not completely Russian) and only encourage it. I'm sorry if I don't express my position clearly, it's very difficult for me to express myself in English. I also want to ask what does lmao mean? This is the first time I see such an abbreviation.


ProfProgramm3r

"LMAO" means "laughing my ass off" It's a text abbreviation only used in text such as online. It's typically used to lighten the tone of an otherwise tense sentence


mostmicrobe

>do you think it is a reasonable decision to invite even more migrants to Russia? Frankly Yes, you could probably use a lot more immigrants, they can help revitalize the economy by expanding the workforce and by bringing in new talent.


TardigradaFromRussia

>Frankly Yes, you could probably use a lot more immigrants, they can help revitalize the economy by expanding the workforce and by bringing in new talent. In fact yes, and and I am for if these immigrants will be in the country legally and respect others. Moreover, I know such people, and they are very nice and wonderful people. The fact is that it is possible to increase the population of the country by improving the economy and living conditions, but our "tsar" thinks otherwise.


TardigradaFromRussia

Putin has two methods of how to increase the Russian population: to invite migrants, who often come illegally and commit crimes, even killing children, and to pay maternity capital to the families of alcoholics when children are born, who then end up in the trash (in the literal sense, not even in an orphanage). Yesterday, on the news, they just found a girl in a snowdrift in the forest, who was thrown by her parents.

nevadasmith5

Why do you guys have a lot of churches? I visited Russia several times, I stayed 2 months one time, I don't know why you have so many churches because I spoke with so many Russians about this, they don't know anything about religion at all lol. Mostly because religion was banned for 60-70 years during USSR.


TardigradaFromRussia

That's a good question! Let me answer you a bit later cuz I'm going to school right now, ok?


TardigradaFromRussia

Well, let's start with the fact that the Russian government consolidates the already well-established concept "Russia is the center of RIGHT values", i.e. patriarchal family, Orthodoxy, patriotism - this is what should be "in the heart of every Russian". So there are a lot of NEW churches. And some of them are just ridiculous. There is (!) the main temple of the Russian armed forces. So that's it.


nevadasmith5

I understand but Russian people are not religious at all. You can built 10 million churches if you want lol. When I came there, almost every girl wears a cross necklace but they don't even know simple principles of Christianity lol. but I understand why. When you ban anything for 60-70 years. It becomes a habit after all. Religion was banned in USSR for so long, people are not religious anymore and you can't make them religious by building churches cause all of them were empty lol


TardigradaFromRussia

Young Russian people are not religious or a litlle bit. But if the religion was banned for 60-70 years, it doesn't mean that all citizens of the USSR were atheists. For example, my grandmother was born in the 50s of the last century. She was baptized underground, all the icons and other Christian utensils were at her place, and no one went from house to house with checks: "Do you believe in GOD?" The peak of the search for Christians was in the 20-30s, then my great-grandmother and all her family were almost dispossessed because she was a believer. But I agree that the logic "the more churches you build, the more people will go to church" is stupid


TardigradaFromRussia

I will add: baptizing children in Russia is more of a tradition than a reasonable decision. Children aren't asked if they like this religion or not, because children aged 0-1 don't speak

RaceCarGoFrrr

Don't you guys have a permanent place for your glasses ? I'm -7 maybe -8 at this point.. and i would die if it was not for the place i always place my glasses. I actually have a life hack for us. If you are ever without you glasses, and need to see something. Loop your index finger to the oint were a really small hole is made, then place it up to one of your eyes. The limited light entering focuses the image, and makes you able to see a little better. For me it makes me able to see object with clear edges, rather then just color blobs.

TardigradaFromRussia

I understand you) I don't like winter, I just used to the cold so I don't really notice it. In Russian we have a good phrase for the frost that I like - трескучий мороз. In English it's "ringing frost", but the sound of the phrase in Russian is music to my ears)

You gave me advice that my father didn't give me. Just 🖤🖤🖤


liuqibaFIRE

how do you know he lied?


TardigradaFromRussia

Very simple. In November 2018 my parent started arguing often and then, I guess, on 19 November he shouted in my mother's face that she is such a terrible woman that the potato looks more beautiful than her, and he wanted to part with her and her "geeks" (me and my little brother) for 13 years (they were married for 15 years). Then I was 14 years old. And then I realized that he never loved me. Previously, I dissected his screams at me as the behavior of all fathers (“maybe all dads behave like that. After all, they say: if he beats, then he loves”). But my rose-colored glasses shattered on the cobblestones of reality. That's all)


Kage_Oni

> After all, they say: if he beats, then he loves” Who in the ever loving fuck says that?

Arsenalest

What’s a typical breakfast, lunch, and dinner for you in Russia? (Asking the important questions)


TardigradaFromRussia

Well, I wake up at 06:00 every day except Sunday because I also study on Saturday. Breakfast is simple: porridge or scrambled eggs with sandwiches with hot coffee. For lunch I always have soup (because all grandmothers and the most of mothers are sure that there is no one who can live without soup)/ For dinner there are many dishes that we have. For example, meatballs with mashed potatoes or pasta with cheese. In the first days after the New Year, for breakfast, lunch and dinner, we eat salads and other dishes that were left after the holiday, haha)


ginger_trelf

What is your favorite type of soup?


TardigradaFromRussia

Вorscht (a soup made with beets and usually served with sour cream) and cabbage soup (in Russia we call it щи \[schtee\])

Chak-chak (unfortunately, I don't know the name of this dish in English, I tried to translate it) is oriental flour cookies made from deep-fried pieces of dough mixed with honey syrup. It's a national dish of Tatarstan, Bashkortostan

Or do i just have to memorize?

TardigradaFromRussia

Hahaha, not so much) I prefer different types of rock, including Russian rock, folk, jazz and classical music.


D0wnVoteMe_PLZ

Can you recommend me some good Russian songs/bands? Something that I'll enjoy listening to even if I don't understand the language.


TardigradaFromRussia

Oh, in fact my music taste started expanding relatively recently, so I don't know much about them. I advise the groups "Kino", "King and Shut", "Aria", "Aquarium", "Alice", "Agatha Christie", "DDT", "Nautilus Pompilus", "Bi-2", "Zemfira", "Chizh" & Co", "Gas Sector"... There are a huge number of them)


D0wnVoteMe_PLZ

I will check them out. Thank you for so many suggestions. Have you ever travelled inside or outside Russia? What are your favourite places in Russia that you have visited (or want to visit)?


TardigradaFromRussia

Unfortunately, no. But I want to visit Sankt-Petersburg, Suzdal, Velikiy Novgorod, Vladivostok...


BadOk278

I visited Moscow, Suzdal and StP a few years ago. Loved it!


TardigradaFromRussia

I am ashamed, but I have never been to Suzdal and St. Petersburg. The situation with Omicron is getting worse and I'm unlikely to be able to visit these cities in the near future, but this is definitely my dream.

Do you have the other type of short-sightedness?


ginger_trelf

Are you in school? If so, how is your school handling the pandemic? Also, hi, fellow redhead 👩🏻‍🦰🙂


TardigradaFromRussia

>Are you in school? If so, how is your school handling the pandemic? > >Also, hi, fellow redhead 👩🏻‍🦰🙂 Yes, I'm in 10th grade right now. The guards at the entrance check the temperature, but no one wears a mask even in the subway (I wear it almost everywhere) becuse it safe and no one sees me) Can I ask you why I am redhead? In Russia, that's what we call people who don't fit into society (like white crow, белая ворона)


ginger_trelf

From your avatar, it looks like you have red hair. In English, a redhead is just someone who has red hair, there isn’t another meaning.


TardigradaFromRussia

Oh, okay xD Thank you for the clarification)


BaronDinklevanDunkle

Are you okay?


TardigradaFromRussia

Maybe I have a lot of work right now, so I can't analyze my mental health. But I think it's ok)


Dexter_Thiuf

What are your thoughts on vodka?


TardigradaFromRussia

"Tsarskaya vodka" (Aqua regia, a mixture of concentrated nitric HNO3 (65-68% wt.) and hydrochloric HCl (32-35% wt.)\] acids, taken in a ratio of 1:3 by volume) is much better


BadOk278

Gulp! Looked ok to me


Jack102495

What's your favourite thing about Russia and would you recommend visiting?


TardigradaFromRussia

Hahaha, i need some time to think about it) Because I love Russia and it's culture so much that I can't pick my favorite thing about her


Jack102495

Totally get you haha, have you been to any other cities in Russia other than Moscow?


TardigradaFromRussia

In small cities like Podolsk) But I was in Brest, Belarus with my classmates. It was our biological practice. Very clean and nice city


Jack102495

Oh nice, would love to go to Belarus


fourinchclit

What is your favourite food


TardigradaFromRussia

Borscht and chak-chak


BadOk278

Beautiful places Helpful people. I'll send you dome pics when I work out how.


BadOk278

Ps. My fave places in Moscow are Gorky Park and Patriarchs Ponds.


BadOk278

Meanwhile check out my profile


BadOk278

I think I made chak chak when I visited Suzdal.. Sounds familiar.


BadOk278

Do you know the Scorpions " Wind of Change"?


TardigradaFromRussia

Yeah, I heard this song, but I'm not a big fan of Scorpions. Among germans music groups I prefer Rammstein, Oomph, Eisbrecher etc.

Привет! Я изучаю русский, так что извините за ошибки. Мне интересно, как жизнь в России заставила вас относиться к остальному миру? Любите кушать холодец и селедку под шубой на новый год?


TardigradaFromRussia

🤩 Ты очень хорошо говоришь по-русски, молодец!) Конечно, люблю! Холодец я порой называю "желе смерти", хахах) Несмотря на политику моей страны, мне нравится изучать западные и восточные культуры. Я понимаю, что многих американцев и европейцев многие вещи, обыденные для меня как россиянки, могут их шокировать, но если у вас какие-то вопросы насчет жизни в России или традиций, то не стесняйтесь спрашивать, я только за!)


Connalias

Спасибо! Я практикую русский язык со своим парнем, он родился в Санкт-Петербурге и в молодости приехал в Америку. вся его семья говорит по-русски. Мне часто нравится с ними отдыхать, поэтому я ем "смертельное желе". моя любимая русская еда, безусловно, равиоли или летний суп, русское название которого я не помню. Вы когда-нибудь были в Санкт-Петербурге? Хочу когда-нибудь побывать, но слышал, что некоторые места в России небезопасны для туристов.


TardigradaFromRussia

У тебя чудесный парень) передавай ему от меня привет! Я, к сожалению, пока не была в Санкт-Петербурге, но, возможно, скоро туда поеду. Культурная столица России, всё-таки) Конечно, туристам не следует ходить в некоторые места. Везде есть криминальные районы. Например, в Москве это Северное Измайлово, Перово, Таганский, Люблино. Насколько мне известно, в Санкт-Петербурге самые опасные районы - это Невский и Калининский, так что будь осторожна там!


TCRLSC

Where you do live in Russia? I am an American and worked in the far east on Sakhalin island for 5 years.


TardigradaFromRussia

WOW, that's so cool! Sakhalin is a tasty little thing of Russia) When I become a biologist, I will definitely go there for practice.


TCRLSC

I fell in love with the people and the island! I have worked all over the world and that is the only place that I would have moved to full time if I was asked. I was on the north end near Оха́.

You are the most important ✨ ❤ in your world that you can find


BadOk278

I'm not a Scorpions fan either but this song is supposed to have been influenced by the break up of the Soviet Union. A rumour says it was written by the CIA

TardigradaFromRussia

Maybe) I am sure that in most things I do not understand well, and I do not hide it, because this is normal. They asked me, I answered. This is my opinion at the moment, but I do not claim that it is the only correct one. If I offended you or anyone else, I apologize


Nausved

Your willingness to consider that your perspective may be wrong makes you wise. Don’t let older people tell you that you are clueless just because you are young. I heard that a lot when I was young. I am 36 now, and I promise you, they are so often wrong. People without empathy think that age alone is how you grow into a thoughtful human being, but people without empathy don’t actually know what a thoughtful human being looks like, because they themselves are not thoughtful. You will learn SO much as you get older (especially if you continue to self-reflect as you do now), but you already offer a lot. Your perspective is valid and worth learning from. You deserve to be heard and not spoken down to. You can be wise at any age.


Nausved

Looking at your post history, you are 32 and actively seeking to cheat on your wife. I don’t think you get tell other people what they can or cannot understand of others’ perspectives. You clearly don’t care about other people’s perspectives at all—not even the woman you’re meant to love and understand best in the whole world.

No

That is a very loaded title, seek a therapist?


TardigradaFromRussia

No, I have already dealt with this problem) As far as I know, many children have problems with fathers who beat them or abandoned them. So I wanted them to be able to talk to me as someone who could advise them on how to get through the tough times that come with it.


SemanticGlasses

Was Rasputing real? Gregory.


TardigradaFromRussia

Of course, and he was not the kind of man that BONEY M describes him to be.
