>>59824767 1. Yes, I learned it myself 2. English teacher. They're looking for it all over the place. 3. Started in Saint Petersburg, currently in Moscow.
>>59824789 Its a bit difficult, but you'll get a grip of it quickly if you're willing to dedicate time. You get a lot of practice here, cause not everyone speaks english. People don't really think in terms of WW2 by ideology. They're certainly proud of their history, but they don't wanna go back either. They're very conservative here compared to the west.
>>59824870 That would be difficult here, as most people don't speak english. The young ones who do are usually too shy to practice it.
>>59825190 Yes. I had more luck in 1 year, than I have my entire life back home.
>>59825211 The economy is slowing down, but there are lots of opportunities for english-speakers here. You can get a job as an english teacher, earning 2000 dollars a month here, and trust me, thats a hell of a lot for russian standards. Currently in Moscow.
>>59825255 Not at all. I understand this country very well. I took interest in it during early teens and even studied the history, literature and language at university.
>>59825472 I've got a degree, but if you're a native english speaker, all you need is your GED at some institutions. Just do a google search for "english teaching jobs in russia", you'll find all the info you need.
>>59825648 I've got a pretty comfy 2 room apartment not far from the metro right outside the inner ring of Moscow city that I rent. The living standard in this city is comparable to a western capital. The amount of wealth concentrated here is staggering. The rest of the country, with the exception of one or 2 other cities is quite poor, so the wealth gap is huge.
>>59826014 In my spare time, I usually go to the gym and hang out with friends here. There is A LOT to do here, at all times of the hour, so the service industry sort of functions like in american cities. You can eat good food and have drinks at 5 in the morning at great establishments if you'd like to. As a scandinavian, where everything closes early, its quite freeing.
They've recently introduced a high speed train that links the 2 largest cities of the country together, by a 3 hour ride. Both Moscow and Saint Petersburg are amazing places.
>>59826227 Do you ever drive over there? I drove around Samara with a local friend when he was too drunk to drive, and it was scary at times due to road conditions and aggressive drivers. But kind of fun.
>>59825641 How hard was it to learn Russian? And what type of language qualifications does it take to get a job? (in general, not specific to any field) Are Russians rude to foreigners or will they make friends with you if your Russian is good?
>>59827147 Hell no. The traffic is wild. I am a good driver, but I have no idea how I'd manage here. I've sat in cars of russians driving like maniacs though. The other day I had a pirate taxi driver from the caucasus. He was literally driving like we were in a high-speed chase on the highway.
>>59827266 Doable if you dedicate time, willingness and energy.
>>59827535 I can't stand the liberal madness in the west anymore. Here, I crack nigger and fag jokes with super hot girls, and they crack up laughing. They don't go SJW on my ass.
>>59827580 I've replied to this several times in the thread. Russians aren't rude to westerners who show appreciation of their culture and language at all. They can be rude to ethnic minorities though. In general, they're laid back.
>>59828004 Construction jobs here are awfully paid, because the entire country is one big construction site, so they've allowed millions of illegal seasonal workers from asia to come here and work in construction. They get paid virtually nothing, and are forced to leave once the job is done. If you're a native english speaker, you'd make way more teaching english, and that doesnt require you speaking russian.
Ever make any trips into the countryside? I never could get the hang of Moscow, I prefer the slower pace of life in rural Russia (Southern Siberia to be precise). The Altai Krai is one of the poorest regions in the country apparently, but I certainly like it there when I visit relatives in the summer.
>>59828463 It is pretty amazing. I suddenly feel quite normal. Masculinity etc is valued here. Being a normal dude here with healthy values and education is seen as a good thing, whereas at home in the west, the dumbed-down culture makes the worst people (niggers, drug addicts, degenerates) into ideals.
I highly recommend it, I always have a blast hanging out with my cousins and their friends. Sauna and beer drinking/card playing all the time, pike fishing, farm fresh food. Hands down the most hospitable people. I guess Siberia is like the American South in a way.
Russian here. Sounds like you've got a pretty good setup going OP. You don't seem to need any advice but I'd just tell you to watch out with the women if you start looking for that long-term thing. Moscow&StPete are full of slags looking for that foreigner just for the money/citizenship/prestige/whatever, be on your guard. Also I don't know what your financial situation is like but if you can, invest in a dacha. There's nothing more based than having a nice hut to just go and chill the fuck out. Go innawoods for some hunting/fishing/gathering shrooms&berries.
>>59828737 That sounds great. I honestly don't get the "le russian culture is shit " meme, I'm constantly having a blast here, in the most natural way, like how life is intended to be. Everythings like, so normal here, in terms of gender relations, people relations, etc etc. It's definitely very real.
I've been told life in Siberia has a lot of freedom, cause of the distance from the central powers in Moscow. Historically, Siberia was a location for either banished criminals, political dissidents, farmers escaping slavery and serfdom, etc. so the attitude there is that of "free men", if that makes sense.
>>59828741 I'm pretty sure you would enjoy it more here than there. So yes. Technically, I'm from the richest, least corrupt western country, but I turned my back on all of that and I couldn't be happier. Some things can't be valued in wealth, like sanity.
>>59828855 Obviously, I support a more conservative approach to politics, but as a foreigner I also know that its not my place. The way the winds are blowing, Russia will get more conservative in the future.
>>59829002 Yeah, none of the girls Ive been hanging with are from the 2 big cities. They're all students from rural regions mostly. I can tell the snakes apart from the pure ones. There are a lot of both of them here. Also, I speak the language without an accent.
I've got capital. Do you know any links I can look at for dachas?
>>59829177 It's basically either, depending on how far out from civilization you have it. Goes the whole spectrum from basically a second house in the countryside to a small one-room old school russian wooden building with no running water electricity or roads. You have one that fits your tolerance of being removed from civilization. Like I said they're pretty based, my fav is a small house with electricity&water and a small sauna out back. Some land to grow a few things and on the outskirts of a forest/river.
There's definitely a lot of poverty away from the city centers, like you mentioned, and some villages do have issues with alcoholism in the community. But as you mentioned, there's just a sense of normalcy about how people go about their lives and society as a whole. In my extended family everyone's popping out kids right now, and just walking around I saw that that was the trend as a whole, nothing but young moms with strollers everywhere you look.
Pic related, village street where one of my cousins lives. Dirt poor, lack of good jobs. But people grow their own food and make due. Again, despite the lack of material wealth, life over there seems more "normal" than the Twilight Zone we've been experiencing in the US.
>>59829445 You're a Russian immigrant to Canada then, or second generation or something?
I read the wiki article and it seems to be a distinct thing from a cottage, though the description of it sounds a lot like the cottage I have which is a bunch of dwellings by the ocean that people go to mostly in the summer but there are some that stay year round.
>>59829266 Actually if you've got any friends/colleagues you know already I'd ask around if anybody's selling. There's a land tax coming online this year and some people will definitely look into getting rid of their dachas. You'd get a better deal if you find one personally. As for sites, the major ones like avito are decent, but I'm not aware of anything specialized. I inherited mine so never had to look. And good choice with the students from the regions, those women are wife-tier.
Economy is slowing down, but the russians are mostly affected. A westerner speaking the local language can actually have a strong advantage, especially in international companies, or western companies working here. Living costs can be low if you know what you're doing. You can find the same product here which is super expensive one place, and cheap another place. Best place to go is to the markets, where you can bargain on goods up to as much as 80% if you know what you're doing.
Quality of life in terms of statistics are worse, but my personal life is much better. I got peace of mind here.
The locals are curious and positive to it. They're interested when a european is interested in the culture. They don't really like the foreigners from asia and the caucasus, but most are impartial. If youre a white man and you speak the local language, youre good.
Women are 1000000 times better.
People dont really give a shit about the holocaust here. Its a non-issue. As for jews, my impression is that they're viewed quite negatively. Its not like outright "GAS THE KIKES" rhetoric, but more like "I don't trust those fuckers" type of mentality.
>>59829541 Exactly. People here aren't deluded with very political stuff. Its a type of realness here that I like. And there is definitely a huge upswing in women having kids here. I see it everywhere.
Summer property to get away from the apartment in the spring/summer/fall. Traditionally the purpose of the dacha is primarily to grow produce, fruit, and berries to supplement the family fridge and pantry (canning is huge there). Things are kind of transitioning where the dacha is more so just for bbqs and relaxing these days, for the wealthy the dacha house is a nice modern building. Pic related is my family's dacha, built from scraps in the 80s, since we moved to the US it's mostly been used by our relatives just as a place to hang out, although they do still grow cucumbers and some berries.
and when the war comes, do you have any idea what the Russians might do to you?
You are fucking their women, after all. And, well, you're from a NATO power. Stalin and his comrades killed tens of millions of his own. Russians burnt their land and 3/4 of Moscow to defeat the French. They won't think twice about you.
A funny anecdote from the sauna: the bros and I were discussing nightclubs, and my cousin said there were just 2 in the nearby city of Biysk, and one decided to have a "Gay Night" once. Word got out and people refused to ever set foot in there again, it went out of business with the quickness.
>>59829992 We really have absolutely no issue with westerners. Russians are always interested in finding out about culture, we read voraciously and will go to see obscure portugese classical music concerts. As long as you're respectful of our home, you're fine in our books. My grandparents went through occupation (great-grandfathers all died on the front) and what amazed me most was that they never said anything bad about germans. At the end of the day it was the government they fought and defeated and the people were just the people. Same for americans or whoever. Plus OP speaks the language so he's guaranteed to be viewed above average right off the bat, and if he's not a sperg he'll be accepted easily.
My one cousin just had her third kid this summer, another's wife just had his first this fall, yet another cousin's wife gave birth to their second son last month. Like I said, anecdotal evidence from my travels to Siberia this summer suggests that people are fucking like rabbits over there, sanctions be damned lol
>>59829992 I'm not here as a hostile threat, I'm here as a friendly ally.
>>59830172 Depends on what you wanna do. Moscow is quite expensive, but still cheaper than Holland: https://www.expatistan.com/cost-of-living/comparison/
>>59830194 Lol. What Russia is going through now is a walk in the park compared to what they've endured in the past.
>>59830196 Lol. Totally in line with what I believe would happen here.
>>59830210 If anything, russians seem to have an admiration for western culture(traditional one, not contemporary SJW madness). In general, I feel like I get considered like a distant cousin here or something. I certainly get treated much better than the average azerbaijani.
>>59829541 >But people grow their own food So theyre not really poor. If you have a shitty car, a tiny little house (thats decorated by Russian women to make it comfy) and grow youre own food somewhere out in rural Russia; youre not really poor... I mean, its like saying that those saami who still herd reindeer or mongols who still are nomadic are poor - technically they are but you have to admit its different because they are self sufficient in a very fundemental way
I hear ya, I know it sounds silly but sometimes instead of my good paying job, college education and fiance entering residency, I kind of wish I was living near my kinfolk in a simple house in Siberia, with my pregnant wife canning wild apples in the summer kitchen. That's my cousin's life basically. Conscripted at 18 and did his year in the army, finished a technical school to work at the rail yard, and now has a wife and kid at 24 years old. Rough upbringing with an alcoholic dad (same story for his wife) but it's scrappy guys like this that hold the country together.
>>59830716 For å være helt ærlig, har jeg lyst til å flytte til Russland. Jeg var fodt i Kaukasus men kom hit pga krig, men noen ganger foler jeg at jeg burde dra tilbake til hjemlandet mitt. Jeg er ikke sikker, fordi jeg har hort så mye negativt.
I agree fully. In my 2 weeks there, I was eating incredible freshly picked veggies, fresh milk and pork, fish that we caught ourselves. Spent time helping with the potato harvest. Awesome nature all around, got plenty of exercise walking to all the good fishing spots. There are almost no overweight people over there except for old babushkas (the ones doing the amazing cooking). So living over there I wouldn't have material wealth measured in dollars (a nice car, a high salary), but the "wealth" of healthy living and a healthy state of mind is prosperity of a different and no less valuable sort.
>>59829956 >English Teacher....Demand and supply, thats what capitalism is all about.
Sure - there is plenty of demand for English teachers. They need people willing to work shitty jobs for crap wages. Even in rich foreign countries, it's only losers who come to work as English teachers.
It's mostly fat, ugly, bald, and socially retarded guys who could never get a good job in their home countries. The quality of English teachers just gets worse as the countries get poorer.
>>59830884 >Material wealth is not the only type of wealth. When it comes to regular life, Russia is much richer than the west.
Sounds exactly like the kind of thing that a loser who went from a first-world country to work a low-paying job in a poor country would say.
1. Are Russians more honest, trustworthy and reliable than Westerners because of that whole communist thing, or the total opposite like the image /pol/ tries to portray? Are the guys more or less beta than in the west?
>>59830926 Nah man I've been pro-Putin since before the meme days. Been shilling pro-russia ever since I moved abroad. Definitely going to go back someday. For now I've got some commitments here for at least 2-3 years. After that we'll see.
For everyone who want to know about dacha. It can be translated like "given thing". Because Soviet Union gave about 600 m2 for free. In 90-s many people not died starving thanks to this little area. Now dacha is fishing, shashliki, banya and sacred ritual of alcohol consumption for young man. But penshioners (they like dacha) grow vegetables and berry. Pic is river about 200 meters away from my dacha.
>>59829266 Nice bro. A dacha is what you need, great place to grow veggies and have parties with friends. Reminds me of my childhood growing up in Ukraine. I also love Russia. Maybe I will immigrate there one day. Just love the culture so much. Its sad how people look down on us because of the years and years of anti Russian propaganda. Unless you know the language or lived in Russia you won't understand.
>>59832107 -Not at all, sure there's a meme block of a torrent site or a pornography site but vpn takes care of that easily. -Depends, in my experiences (granted I live abroad and only venture back now and then) it's gotten miles better. Unlike 90's/early 00's you can actually get shit done with 0 bribes. However Russian bureaucracy is absolutely byzantine-tier slow and complicated. Example: back in the day I got a foreign-passport done super fast in a week with big lump-sum payment instead of waiting for a month. Only evidence was that my passport was stated as issued by the ministry of foreign affairs and not a local office. Never had a single issue till it expired. -Been answered several times. Don't be a sperg and respect the local culture and you'll be fine. Also, don't be a fag, or if you are don't be an obvious one.
>>59832431 but im catholic but am completely willing to convert to orthodoxy since they are very similar and most differences are political. So I would be a White Orthodox Christian... pretty sure I'd have no problem
>>59829992 >Stalin killed bla bla So did the kings. Plus all that stuff was made up during the cold war >camps for for foreigners Like the camps for the Japanese during ww2? >burned Moscow for the French It was made of wood mostly, was burned down several times from fire
Its too much too ask that you learn our language and live there. But without it you won't really understand the good things about the country. So just reserve judgement, unless you want to look foolish
>>59832945 This is what westerners have trouble understanding. We may absolutely despise alliances, countries and governments, but we never hate the people. We judge the people based on our personal encounters with them and everyone gets a chance when we first meet them. See higher up my example about the war generation and their view of germans.
>>59831353 No, religion is making a huge comeback here. Everywhere you see people wearing crosses. How much of it is genuine is uncertain, but at least there is social pressure here to show off that you're a christian, which is the opposite of the social pressure to be an atheist degenerate back home.
>>59830972 Well, that depends. Women here are traditionally courted by men. They hold doors open, take your coat off etc. So you'd be treated like 1950's australia. Wether you'd like that or not is a different question.
>>59831633 Lol. Japan's not even on my radar, so just calm down, my small-dicked yellow friend.
>>59832015 1. People aren't in general more "trustworthy", but they're more brutally honest. So its easy to maneuver yourself. The guys are way more alpha. There are no skinny-jeans wearing Bieber-lookalikes here. They're all wearing black leather jackets and black boots.
Havent encountered any asian women. Ive seen them, but Ive only been socializing with the white slavic ones.
>>59832107 I havent noticed anything at all, except for the fact that I cant access full-chan.
People are correct and upfront. If you're respectful, they are too. Out in the public(at bus etc) its every man for himself though. Dont get offended when people get pushy in the subway. They're just standing their ground, and so should you.
>>59832478 Lol. But I'm from the land of Rurik, not brazil or australia. If you saw me on the street, you'd never think I was foreign.
>>59831633 you don't know what you're talking about
It doesn't matter if you make 100k USD a year if you are commuting 3 hours a day and spending 1k a month to rent a shitty tiny apartment. Quality of life is something that isn't determined by how much money you make.
>>59832736 Russia's population is about 1/5 Asian and that figure is steadily increasing because of immigration. In certain regions, Asians are ubiquitous, like the far north and some of the Tartar provinces.
>>59833043 Huge lol? I don't want war, nobody wants, we had a huge war 70years ago, wasn't fun. But we expect that at some point some of you guys will decide that it's that time again when you should attack Russia.
Are you fucking retarded? You lived in the best country in the world (assuming it's America) and you moved to Russia. There's a reason people like my family fight tooth and nails to get the fuck out of there.
>>59833381 >You lived in the best country in the world (assuming it's America) Yeah man. I fucking love living in a country ruled by the most evil government in the entire world, starting war after war after war.
>>59830566 >In general, I feel like I get considered like a distant cousin here or something. Crazy to think one of their most famous actors is a Finn. No-one back home would have recognized his face when in Russia he was already a household name.
>>59833129 Got a pretty good degree too though. And enough money to have it pretty good.
>>59833138 >>59833178 Its getting more liberal. They recently made some law changes that liberalized gun ownership.
>>59833188 The tatars are so mixed that many of them look whiter than many norwegians. Also, the immigration isn't a measure, because it swings all the time, as most guest workers leave after 5 months, to be replaced by the next batch of seasonal workers. Its basically USA-style illegal immigration, without welfare, amnesty-talks, La Raza and sanctuary cities.
>>59833347 Dont know. Probably not. To me it seems like french is spoken as much as english here. Lots of russians learn it in school.
>>59833381 Yeah, cause its so great living among niggers, trannies, LGBT's, feminists and liberals.
Moving to Russia isn't for the weak-hearted. Yes you get rid of degeneracy and have a chance of getting a 10/10 traditional wife (westerners get a shit-ton of pussy in Russia if they're not total spergs), but to actually live there you'll need to deal with the downsides. Some of them: -You have to know the language, if you don't you're fucked. As a tourist you can survive, but as a local who needs to get documents from local offices you're totally fucked without at least mid-grade Russian. -Speaking of that, it's a byzantine system. You'll be waiting in lines to get tokens to wait in other lines. You'll be getting one set of documents just so you're issued another. -Lower quality of life. Russia isn't a rich western country, it just isn't. The two capitals have all the shit you need and some of the smaller cities are decent (Kazan, looking at you) but you'll have to be willing to trade down a comfort level. -Medical care is shit. Ok, it's not complete shit and Russian surgeons work fucking miracles but if you want any decent service you'll have to pay the fuck up. Then again if you have money you'll be fine, or you'll just go abroad for any major problems. -Drivers on roads are fucking nuts.
That a few things. Yes life in Russia has many advantages, but it's not perfect.
>>59833521 Not him, but here's the basics: - no handguns - no full auto on rifles - only up to 10 shells in a magazine After getting 'hunter's card' you can buy smoothbore guns (i.e. shotguns). After 5 years of having the card you get to buy guns with rifling. Semi auto is ok. Kalashnikovs and it's variations (Saigas and whatnot) are too though they'll have the 10 shells + no full auto restrictions.
>>59833895 >live state and/or city is filled with niggers, trannies(which I have never seen and I live in California), LGBT's, feminists(again never seen or heard), and liberals. >Move to a state without them
>>59833895 Oh good! Glad to hear they're getting better for gun ownership. I don't suppose you know very much about the details of the firearms market there, but would you happen to know what their process is to purchase a weapon?
>>59833996 Not fazed at all. Imma move back someday. Just got citizenship here (basically visa-free for the whole planet now) and once I've tied up all the knots I'm moving on. Trying to see a bit of the world before I settle down essentially.
>>59833911 >You'll be waiting in lines to get tokens to wait in other lines Lol, it is changed about 7 years ago. Last time I wait about 10 minutes to change pasport. >Medical care is shit Wrong. No comfort for free, but they will heal you. About 4 man in one room, simple but good food. If you want to pay it is cheap.
>>59833948 Thanks, much obliged. While that isn't as good as what I'm used to, that's not terrible. I think I understand the logic behind that system. Prove you're law abiding and responsible and then you can have the fun toys, right?
>>59834159 Yeah I know. I remember going back to redo my internal one a few years ago and the experience was so fucking amazing. I basically got to see the same official as when I first got it when I was a kid, but this time everything was handled instantly and the dude was nice instead of a dick. A lot has definitely improved. Some family members had some dealings with recovering lost funds after their banks failed and I was very impressed with how things were handled. They got assigned to a local Sberbank branch and got all their money back two weeks after the bank collapsed. No hassle, no nothing. Still we both know there's some of the old shit left here and there.
>>59834345 The only people at war with western people are the western governments themselves. If anyone are whiping out western culture and people, it is the western political establishment. Russia is ironically acting like the vanguard of traditional european christianity.
>>59834345 >nukes are 70 years old Psychological projection, also known as blame shifting, is a theory in psychology in which humans defend themselves against their own unpleasant impulses by denying their existence while attributing them to others. For example, a person who is rude may constantly accuse other people of being rude.
>>59834345 Dude, look if you're really that paranoid and not just fucking with us I seriously suggest taking a vacation in Russia. Don't just do the week in Mosow bullshit, go see the smaller cities, have some fun, meet some locals. Every person I know who has visited Russia changes their view of both the country and its people.
>>59834501 Okay. Sorry if I seem a little inquisitive, I'm in Poland and moved here 5 years ago for probably the same reasons as you. I'm preparing to move to Russia, but not Moscow. Do you work full time?
Is protected by a cossack horseback patrol. People in the dacha community pay a small fee and these legit Cossacks ride around looking to catch petty thieves (stealing pipes and other metal to buy booze). Our neighbor has seen them catch a guy, tie him to a post, and give him two lashes with a whip. He was screaming bloody murder that he was going to sue and go to the police etc. they just told him next time they'd give him enough lashes that he'd never walk again. Brutal but effective, very low recidivism rate, that's for sure.
>>59834159 Forgot: Medicare is still shit in smaller cities. A family member died from cancer recently and the amount of shit we went through trying to schedule appointments, second opinions from non-retarded doctors and getting the right meds was just insane. It's good if you're in the large cities, but if you're at anything sub 150k you'll start hitting problems pretty quickly.
>>59824347 How easy is it to pick the non-gold digger, beautiful, Russian women? How I wish I could go with you. Also, is there any engineering jobs in Russia? I'm tired of America and its SJW mentality.
>>59834721 Old new year is a old new year It'll be january 14 and not this wednesday because today is january 2 >>59834759 Well yes, i assume that it's hard to be redpilled on west Atleast they have decent level of life so if you close your eyes on all the shit you can live happily until some niiger stabs you in the back
>Its too much too ask that you learn our language and live there. But without it you won't really understand the good things about the country.
I am aware of many good things about Russia. I played chess with an old Russian in the square in Christchurch. he was friendly enough. sometimes glamorous looking younger russian couples (no children, of course) would come speak with him. I've seen similar types here in Colorado Springs.
You have Grigory Perelman. You have Dostoevsky.
but the things, supported by numerous links, I have posted in this thread are true. You are free to address any of them specifically. So far you have been unwilling or unable to. Putin is on an apocalyptic collision course with the West.
>>59834339 >Prove you're law abiding and responsible and then you can have the fun toys, right? Yeah, guess that's a part of it. The government basically tries to de-criminalize them as much as possible, sometimes getting too far in some measures which the gun community actively scorns, but never actually upsetting the industry for good or harming the market. It mostly makes sure you can't carry them unnoticed (the whole ban on handguns, also why sawing off and generally modernizing rifles is strictly outlawed), and can't make an effective mass shooting with gun's limited firepower. Generally, I see our gun laws as a kind of middle ground between American full liberty and, say, hyper-regulation of Japan and some European countries.
>>59835063 The western world is literally insane. People start visibly shaking and have problems breathing when you say stuff like: ''I want our race to continue to exist.'', or ''I don't support multiculturalism'', or any other innocent thing like that
People are LITERALLY insane and fucked in the head.
>>59835459 I see. Is open carry of your rifle or shotgun permitted? America may have full liberty of purchase, but not carry. For instance, my state, South Carolina, encourages concealed carry of a pistol, but open carry of any sort is illegal. And laws are quite different from state to state. Is Russia this way too or is it all the same regulations nationwide?
>>59835733 Well there's literally no jobs in Sweden so saving up money will be hard. Unfortunately we're also not taught basic things in school to allow us to function in modern society, so I ask you /pol/: How the fuck do I find a job in a country I'm not in and not a citizen in?
>>59835797 Honestly, if I was black, I would avoid this region all together. The locals here arent big on political correctness. I was at a football match not too long ago, and witnessed supporters hurl bananas at black players.
>>59835909 Unfortunately, this penetrates every level of society now. Speaking your mind will most certainly get you in trouble wether its in your job, or even among friends.
Another fun anectode about blacks in Russia: I was on the black sea coast last summer dealing with family affairs (black sea coast is where our beaches are) and there would be black people that businesses used to draw attention. Niggers dressed up in costumes and handing out leaflets, shit like that. One restaurant had a singing black guy and people would quite literally say "hey dear, look at that they have a singing nigger". Hilarious shit, especially after living in dude-weed lmao country for some time.
>>59836249 This was in Moscow. I expect Kiev to be much worse. While russians are very nationalistic in nature, Ukraine is currently surfing on a wave of the militant type of nationalism. It was existant in Russia too some years ago, but law enforcement had to crack down on it, cause it was getting out of hand.
>>59836517 >you say western governments are the threat yes it is, to its own peoples. are you even aware of what the fuck is going on in the western world you fucking antiwhite?
>your air force is doing mock bombing raids of Scandinavian nations american warplanes were the ones that violated swedish airspace illegaly the most throughout 2014, stop this ''RUSSIAN AGGRESSION'' meme you fucking antiwhite
>>59836516 Plenty of swedes in Norway. I'd recommend you get a job at the norwegian airport as a ramp agent. Its very physical(you carry luggage into the planes all day), pays alright, and you can live cheap in the local area. Oslo is just 15 min away. LOTS of swedes work there.
>>59836635 Alright I will take this into consideration. I've asked these questions to enough people by now that the two most common recommendations are: ''Work in Norway'' and ''Learn russian''. I think I have a pretty good idea of what I have to do.
What now remains to be seen is how my ongoing ''''''''''''''education''''''''''''' at university in Sweden will go, if it goes to shit then I'm off to work in Norway, if not, we'll see.
>>59836517 At this point I'm writing for lurkers that might want answers to some of these points. Moscow is like New York, it's high pace, crazy and rude. That's why if you want to see the real Russia you need to see smaller cities where life is a bit more relaxed and the people aren't as crazy. Moskvichi are a breed of their own, and not the best breed. The capital is great for fucking around and seeing famous shit. Also if you have a military hard-on like me go see Kubinka and Monino (kubinka is patriot park nowadays), that shit is cash.
>>59836517 Show me your tinfoil hat. My original post was >>59830994 what is completely true. And somehow now you are replying me something about weapons grade plutonium. Dude, you have some serious problems even by /pol/'s standards.
>>59835831 Guns laws are nationwide as much as I know, the state doesn't tolerate Republics and territories going on their own in topics like that.
Concealed carry is a definite no, but open carry is permitted if you have the papers on the gun. It used to only be allowed for hunting, during special sport arrangements, training shooting etc. but the recent law also added self-defense purposes in the list. Not sure how a rifle is supposed to be carried all the time for that though, so perhaps a traumatic pistol would serve better. Transporting guns in a car is also allowed.
When our family wants to shoot some targets, we just grab the guns and the necessary licenses/documents, ride outside of the city to an improvised shooting-range and waste some ammo on bottles/targets/etc. All of that is legal.
see above. russians practiced nuclear bombing raids of stockholm. you would be killing swedish civilians, you realise that?
when your Russian colonel sells bomb grade plutonium to Jihadists, they will use the bomb on a Western city full of Western civilians.
the implications are unavoidable. and for the record I am a traditional conservative. I oppose the degenerate liberalism in my nation and in Europe too. degeneracy accompanies collapse. Putin is an avatar of Shiva, perhaps. selah
>>59835831 I don't know much about carrying, but be warned, that there are no stand-your-ground laws and you have to prove that you really had no other choice but to use a gun. So it's probably better to carry a traumatic weapon, penalties for murder are harsh and you don't want to be in a russian prison.
>>59837199 What the fuck are you talking about? >NATO is not a country. NATO is the countries that form it. Yes, I know. And I'm against NATO. >The head of NATO is Norwegian And OP hates him, just like OP also hates the EU and NATO. Justl ike I do, just like 99.9% of /pol/ does.
>you're just talking out of your ass >considering /pol/ is predominantly populated by NATO members, I'd be willing to bet the truth is closer to the opposite /pol/ is made up by nationalists, nationalists naturally oppose both the EU and NATO because they are comitting white genocide
>>59837392 I doubt russians would know enough about american politics to associate that hat with Trump, they'd rather associate it broadly with the US and get upset by it, as would I if I didn't know better.
what is it like for women in general? I've heard it's pretty...not female friendly...compared to america but I'm not gonna immediately believe what is told to me i learned a little russian when i was young and was pretty involved in russian culture at my school where i learned it, and there was a little part of me that wanted to visit or live there. but i don't know what it would be like living there as a woman. thanks if you answer
nice try. fact remains a Russian colonel has worked to smuggle nuclear weapons into the West via Jihadis
fact remains 80% of Russians view NATO unfavorably, and an even higher percentage support Vladimir Putin. Russian military has become increasingly militaristic; examples have already been posted ITT for all to see. You are feigning ignorance or maybe you just are. those who have eyes can read the links I have posted for themselves and see the truth
>>59837922 >Russians know plenty of English No they don't. What makes you think you are more informed on this topic? Even those who do are shy to practice it so can't understand spoken language well. You don't think that there is some correlation that unfriendliest cities are in USA and Russia: countries that are well known for being monolingual?
>>59837575 Russian men are a lot more sexist and harsh towards women than western men. And I'm not even talking about beta faggots out here, I'm saying in general. In Russia if you're a woman you're expected to have kids, do the household chores and cook. Basically a traditional wife. It's not middle-east tier but you're definitely looking at having to live up to some traditional expectations. Also, get married before you come to Russia. Russian men are generally not great (I include myself). A lot of us are heavy drinkers, we're not the best lookers and we are pretty sexist. There's good things though. Women in the workplace are more equal in Russia than women here dream of. Non-degeneracy is a plus and if you're into orthodoxy women are the most churchgoing people in Russia. Some great communities there.
>>59838167 Forgot to add: Women in Russia can't dress themselves for shit. Like they'll spend thousands of dollars on expensive clothes and still look like a kid that got into their mother's closet. If you can dress yourself semi-decently you'll be the best-dressed woman around. Russian women are hot as shit and there are waay more women than men, so to expand on my previous point, even if you do find a good Russian man he'll have a massive amount of choice.
>>59838705 Yeah but it still holds up. Look at your average Russian couple in their 20's: 8.5/10 aphrodite tier with a 6/10 manlet. I'm exaggerating obviously, but as a sub-tier looking man you have much better chances in Russia. >>59838737 It's even worse when they get into their 30s and 40s and decide they want jewellery. They buy the tackiest shit, it's just bad.
>>59838705 It is, he's taking it out of his ass about "waay more women than men". That's just grannies out-living grandpas for almost 15 years nationwide that make most of the gap. An average Mr. Everyman doesn't feel any of it and needs as much work finding someone as anywhere in the West.
