The myths behind Crazy Russians
Most Russians unluckily often become misunderstood spil well spil regrettably misconstrued ter Película del Oeste Filmrolletje and Media. This misrepresentation usually occurs because not many people have a greater understanding of any Russians to challenge this perception. Yet Russians do travel via the world. Spil the Russian economy proceeds to expand many more will travel ter the foreseeable future.
The world will see two big sporting events that will open Russia up to the world stage вЂ“ The Winter Olympics ter Sochi te 2014 and The Football World Cup ter . Both thesis sporting events te Russia will help promote Russia o the surplus of the world which remains an interesting uitzicht.
And thesis sporting events remain a good thing for the good of all sports spil well spil Russian culture. It will help widen the worlds understanding of thesis proud people. Te addition the potential entertainment of visa requirements for traveling to Russia will help people loosely travel to the country. Albeit spil yet it’s unassured if this policy will become widely accepted te connection with the sporting events ter Russia.
However firstly it’s necessary to consider what a myth is particularly when applied to Russian culture? A myth functions te a similar way to a stereotype. A myth exists spil a shortcut to non-thinking. It helps people sort, spil well spil organise the many sources of information experienced ter every day from various sources including digital photos, social media and newspapers. Despite being predominately negative myths also have the slight chance of a positive outcome, te that a petite portion of a myth may ter fact be true! Ter this case it’s significant to consider the Russian myths that surround the perception of Russia, spil well spil its people.

Russians and Vodka
вЂњAll Russians Drink VodkaвЂќ
Yes Russians do drink Vodka. It’s their national drink. It literally means вЂњLittle WaterвЂќ. Drinking te many cultures is seen spil being part of a celebration or connected to genérico festivities. A similar myth or stereotype could make the same assumption that ALL French people drink wine. While undoubtedly some do, not ALL do. The same remains for Russians. Some Russians drink Vodka but not all do.
To drink to feast remains acceptable and often marks special events ter Russian culture, whether it’s Holidays, Fresh Years, Birthdays, Marriages, and normal partying. Drinking beyond the realms of celebration exists spil a cause for concern for all cultures spil it leans more towards alcoholism. Problems of alcoholism remains the same problem for Russian culture spil it does for all others.
On the other mitt vodka or rather purer wijngeest also gets used ter some medical treatments ter Russia. Often it’s heated and placed on a towel which is then packaged around the neck to treat colds and mouth infections. Vodka acts spil the colchoneta for the instillation with Fly Agaric (Amanita muscaria) to treat muscular back problems.
What is Kumis? Well Russians drink Fermented Pony Milk
Yes it is true Russians drink a low drank drink called Kumis which is made from fermented pony milk – ideally fermented mare’s milk.
Beaware of the Russian Mafia and other Crazy Myths
The existence of the Russia Mafia is not a verrassing. Criminals exist te all societies and so does organised crime. Spil Don Corleone would Say вЂњIt’s nothing private just business.вЂќ Each country has high levels of mafia if you scrape underneath the surface.
Russian Winters – so cold I will freeze!
Yes winter te Russia remains bitterly cold (-65 В°C wasgoed the lowest recorded) however the media winter temperature is -20 В°C. With adequate clothing and thermals winter becomes actually very pleasant. During its winter Russia receives very little precipitation, and therefore many days, despite being cold, have brilliant sunshine and very little humidity. It winter remains like a dry-cold temperature with very little dampness.
Also it’s worth noting spil a counterpoint that the two invasions of Russia by Napoleon ter 1812 and Hitler’s Operation Barbarossa te 1941 were both severely hampered by Russian winters.
вЂњAll Russians are crazy!вЂќ
No they’re not all crazy. The expression however does come from Submariner warfare, when to check if a Russian submarine wasgoed being followed te its vensterluik spot by an American submarine. The Russian sub would turn 180 degrees very quickly and head straight back along its innovador path. Heading towards any following submarine would force the other sub to take emergency deeds to avoid a collision.
Russian Women will steal your passport and take your money!
This plain myth remains untrue. However unluckily spil mentioned above criminals exist te all societies and if you mix with bad company, expect bad results. Russian women are very proud of themselves, their nation and their family. They are slim and always strive to improve their outlook to all situations. They are normally well educated, respectful, and dedicated.
Do I need a Visa for Russia?
Unluckily this is not a myth and it is true – yes you do need a visa for Russia. I attempted the London Embassy but found they closed the queue after 12.30pm. So I used a reputable on-line company. You will need to register your Russian Visa when ter Russia. I suggest you ask or check if the hotel can do it, spil it is a lengthy process to do it yourself. Also the visa registration paperwork will only be ter Russian and has to be 100% onberispelijk!
Russian Car Crashes Welcome to Mad Max
Having witnessed hundreds of Russian Car Crashes, and I do mean hundreds during my time te Russia it is fair to say that the rule of driving equates to this:
The very first rule of Russian Driving is that there are no rules!
Usually typical crashes involve fender-benders and are not high speed crashes вЂ“ however part of this crash style is caused by the lack of rules, road markings and indeed the need to get everywhere at speed. Russian drivers generally do not queue and will after look for ways to get past other slower motorists. Te essence this creates a Mad Max style of driving which literally appalls mij!
After a crash the vehicles remain stationary until the particular police come and pack ter their reports, for insurance/court claims. This means that any minor crash results te the road being blocked until further notice. A minor scrape te essence causes a greater traffic jam. This has resulted ter a fresh law that means you can ter fact stir your car and the insurance/court punt is dealt with zometeen. This is designed to help speed up Russian traffic. However no one believes this and so they vehicles still remain stationary until the road police arrive.
Pedestrians also have to reminisce that a Green Crossing does not necessarily assure a safe crossing. With so many lanes Russians have to be aware of all traffic directions and to not trust the green crossing. Visual checks of oncoming cars and cars injecting from pedestrian vensterluik catches sight of need to be factored te crossing the road. Pedestrians crossings (unlit are generally disregarded, so cross at your own peril!). More consideration shows up to be given to parents with puny children вЂ“ I have witnessed drivers zekering (normally they would have not) when crossing the road with a petite child!
All of this apparent peril with car crashes (think of a Russian and his Waterreservoir) and lack of consideration to pedestrians truly does make you wonder are all Russians Crazy? The reaction is very likely no, there is just a different sense of order or puinhoop that prevails modern Russian today.
