I have some friends who went to Russian and have nothing but praise for the ordinary people of Russian. But the government is -censored-. I pray for the day when the average Russian citizen will be wealthy and living in a democratic state which will care deeply for his/her well-being. I despise the current Russian goverment. If Russia had no nuclear weaopons, it would be a cold banana republic.ReplyDelete
