Hello! I meet with a lot of people from China, USA, Australia, Germany, Iran, Iraq, Afghanistan, Italy, Austria, Argentina, etc., and visit some of these countries. And sometimes my family was a host for foreign tourists.
So, I understand, peoples the world are not much so different as we hope. Russians believe in their exclusivity, and sometimes we have the right to say that, but actually it’s from the fact that many have never been to other countries.
But it’s better to be prepared for our features, especially without Russian speaking guide. Because this country can surprise you whenever it is least expected.
