"I'm watching strictly come dancing and one of the professional dancers Artem just said, "People think I am rude, but I'm not, I'm just Russian!" LOL"

LMAO yeah, people tend to think we are kinda rude or unpleasant because we don’t smile a lot. which reminds me that one time when i went to the foreigners’ office here in Madrid and the guy i spoke to told me he’d never have said i was Russian because i was all smiles. but then he saw the pics i brought for my new resident’s card and said: oh, now i see that you are Russian LOL anyway i think it’s a cultural thing, we tend to be distant with strangers. probably, because we don’t trust them, and there are various historical reasons behind that. but once you have our trust so to speak you’ll see that we are not cold or distant at all :)
