Any russians here?
How does this pic make you feel?
What do you think about Putin and Medvedev?
>How does this pic make you feel?
got used to it.
The life didn't really changed 2bh. It's just that it's almost impossible to buy anything (because of it's price) that was imported.
of course it's getting worse. Rubles value is still dropping since that krimea shit. Since i live here the prices for everything were only rising.
imho, the things here only will change here if our president will be some pro-american shitbag. If the president will have the same ideology as putin then... our government will still be trying to prove that we are very strong and shit and people will be suffering from it.
IMHO DON'T JUDGE ME, RUSSIANS.
And Putin could have developed those things between 2000-2015, but he didn't. He chose to develop the country into paranoid authoritarian regime which annexes land and does almost nothing useful other than petrol.
The reason that is because the currency is devalued, so you cant afford anything done in other countries. Like electronics, vacationing, a good car, good food
You should know things like this...
>le Russia is only gas meme
] Russia has an abundance of oil, natural gas and precious metals, which make up a major share of Russia's exports. Russia have signed a cooperation agreement in the energy sector with Lebanon. As of 2012 the oil-and-gas sector accounted for 16% of the GDP, 52% of federal budget revenues and over 70% of total exports.
>another month where /int/ will talk about Russia all day because Russia is powerful, strong and relevant and not even mention Brazil because Brazil is poor and irrelevant
I earn money in $$$ through advertising all kinds of shit online
it's all good senpai
When 70% of export is oil/gas, it's not a meme, but a reality.
And metals are additional 10+%, just natural resources..
When did you last see or hear of a Russian product? Compare to Germany (cars etc) for example. Note that Germany has 57%!! population of Russia.
Honestly have you ever been to Russia? Literally significant part of Russians still live like this. Russians men barely live to 60 years of age.. That's half way between civilized world and Africa. Think about that you dumb fuck.
They have all the resources you could ever need for a economy, but they have none. How did it come to this? Ask that of yourself.
>When did you last see or hear of a Russian product? Compare to Germany (cars etc) for example. Note that Germany has 57%!! population of Russia.
Moreover, non-resource export from Russia is about 50 bil. $, while export from the fucken Israel is about 80 bil. $
meah. it was kinda scary in late 2014
the second time around it's okay since we basically know what it does to our lives
basically, cars, electronics and vacations are going to get a little more expensive still
but you don't buy those things every day, so it's not VERY noticeable on day-to-day basis
you are so fucking stupid you probably would say same when Hitler tried to destroy Russia "why can't we be friends" "muh political elite"
Reality is that average cunts voted and support this
No, Jonne, you are the one who is stupid.
Jokes aside, if you, i and a russian from the same basic background sit together we could have some fun and wouldn't care that much.
Universial brotherood of man and shit.
>Except uneducated arseholes from the middle east,sorry.
yeah I got it, you have a nigger level IQ and therefore talk like a nigger too
Maybe that's true, but you are still too stupid to realize we can't be friends with someone annexing land. Really stupid that is.
Also I wish for peace and prosperity as well, who wouldn't.
>Russia has an abundance of oil, natural gas and precious metals, which make up a major share of Russia's exports.
All of which are priced in dollars (as is the equipment you need to buy to extract them) and none of them are in any demand.
Lada Granta is the most sold car in Russia. And with ruble falling like this, Lada will dominate the market permanently.
Lada will rise again.
During USSR times Finland was one of the bigger Soviet car importers but nowadays none of the car dealers even sell Ladas or any other Russian cars in Finland. Maybe that tells you something about how ardent western consumers are for getting Russian cars.
>Lada Granta is the most sold car in Russia.
Due to there being no competition within the price point. Again, given the choice no one would choose one because modern Ladas are complete shit.
Hi. Russian. Live in Siberia.
I want to give you a short lecture about russia and it's history.
1861 - end of slavery of 80% population
1917 revolution - war
1935-1940 Stalin - repressions
1941-1945 - WW - 25-26 millions died
1945-1953 repressions after war
so. A HUGE part of clever, health population died
150 years ago was slavery
idea is simple
society build government
our society is ill, 4-5 generations of Russians lived without politics everything in politics
and now we only have hope, that if we try to connect in some sort of society, try to make our children better than we make better country
This is why keeping the Russian population poor is important. Putin is a master tactician.
And the only important part of it is Chinese like every other small brand smartphone.
Yota should just keep the Nokia employers on a leash or they might sink Yota just like they did with Nokia.
I mean, people in Russian are not evil, we are stupid, we don't have any mechainisms of autoregulation, labour union in Russia is fake it doesn't work, and we all afraid that 1990-1998 will repeat so - Putin play this card everytime. He say "USA\Ukraine\Turkey against us" and everybody trust him
And, Krimea. I'll try to explain.
Russian=USSR in Russians mind,
1990-1998 - years of our shame, our counry was ruined, 2000% inflation, USA wins in cold war.
Every russian takes it close to it's heart. It's a shame. We lost almost everithink. People was in depression. It's a trauma. And everybody think that Krimea is "ours". It helps to feel like we live in proud and strong country. It's stupid, but it' real
My mother was an engineer on a plant. 1994 - clean worker in school, then bookkeeper. My grandpa died in 1995, my grandma in 2000, they bouth was ill - canser. For me it's a time of death and sorrow. And for all my friends. If you father was a general of some sort of big snot - so, your lucky
i don't know, i remember only crackers. I was 5 years old, my mom tells me this story.
Then was 10kg apples and 20 kg of oranges. And one time it was a horse (but my father pity this horse and don't gave it on slavery, he gave it to one man, he promised he will take care about it).
What's your financial position nowadays, has it improved significantly or not? Do you fear that you might have as rough shit ahead of you or if you've climbed to better social standing, are some people going to be in a similar position if the bad economic situation continues? And if yes, will people riot?
not slavery - slaughter (my bad english), sorry
I try to say. Don't think that all Russinas are beasts or nonhumans. I love my country, love people around me, i want to stay here (it's hard, but i try to explain to people that we have to take our lives in our hands) I'm a teacher And this is my path.
>Don't think that all Russinas are beasts or nonhumans.
No-one prob thinks this except for bants.
>we have to take our lives in our hands
Is that possible in Rossiya?
It was the time when hierarchy got restored:fools suffered and the smart thrived.
There will never be times again when you could've bought land with a house in jurmala for 500euros. My grandma was a fool (didn't even sell zhiguli) those who knew whats up now don't have to even work.
