If someone says to you that Russia is a dejected place with dull people and a variety of problems, take a closer look before believing everything you hear. Look carefully, Russia is different.
Her critics will point to the political instability, economic inequalities and probably even throw in alcoholism (vodka is in their blood, huh?). I won’t deny, there are certain problems, but there will always be, no matter whether we are talking about Russia or any other country in the world.
But the most amazing thing about Russia is the people who live there. The people of a nation raise hope for a better future.
Some time ago I read a story about Muscovites, which ended up concluding that “Moscow is for the sad”. I do not agree with this author, as every time I visit Russia, I meet friendly, cheerful people, who are open-minded and ready to help.
