  • HOW do you move to Russia from the U.S.?

    Best answer: The only negative is money. You won't coin $100,000 yearly in Russia. But internet is $3-4, electricity is $3-5, labor is cheap. We are 750 miles from Moscow and 100 rubles will get a taxi most anywhere in town. Airport to train station, 1 - 1 1/2 hours by taxi in Moscow is $16-17. Used to we took the bus,... show more

    Russia is wonderful, a lot different than USA. Don't think of designer clothes, handbags, etc. Most are Chinese copies. MK bag for $7 but my Russian wife could care less. All the designers are not so popular anyway.
    I am trying to get a dacha myself. $20K separates me from my 1/2 acre (or so) and the house MAY be unlivable. I can have a house built for less than $30k MORE. A flat is $19,800 for a two room. Living room and bedroom. Kitchen, toilet and bath are there, but not called "rooms".
    Food is excellent. Fresh, smoked, canned meats are aplenty. Fish, from shrimp to filets to live, just-caught gaping carp can be bought anytime. New Year makes the shops look like a 10 day hurricane is coming as not water, but all food is stripped from the shops. It is the party and shopping orgy Americans have made Christmas into. Here, Christmas is a HOLY day where we go to church Jan 6 at 10 or 11pm (22.00 or 23.00) and stay until 2 or 3 am. Easter, too.
    Bread is unbelievable. Once I counted over 65 different breads in one store.
    So IF you can move, that is some of what you are moving to. Oh, yes. Snow covers the ground from Nov to Mid April. When it melts away, you work the dirt at the dacha to plant tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, carrots, flowers, etc. Tomatoes you start in the window in March or so and put them out in June and HOPE for no freeze! (cover them...)
    Final thought... If you have marketable skills, physics and engineering, Moscow or some industrial city may have a need for you. THAT can make the imminent marriage unnecessary to live here. Contact Russian companies, Russian Railroads, Aeroflot, Avtovaz, Severstal, Norilsk Nickel, many hydroelectric plants Rus hydro, etc with your skills and degree. Perhaps one will invite you to work here. Many are State Owned facilities.
    EDIT working for multi-national corporations looking to hire native speakers. NGO's or Russian companies that operate in energy, finance and construction sectors may also present opportunities.

  • Why Russians referred their country as female?

    Best answer: Because of a grammar. Slavic languages always use female gender for names who finish at "a".
    So, Rus, for example would be masculine, but Russia, Ukraina etc. are always female.
    Learn something, Slavs are majority in Europe.

  • Why there are three variations of saying who in east Slavic languages?

    Best answer: Хто - means "who" in Ukrainian and Belarusian что - means "what" in Russian (it's "що" in Ukrainian and "што" in Belarusian) кто - means "who" in Russian Some of those can coincide with other languages of Slavic language family (South Slavic etc). To... show more
    Best answer: Хто - means "who" in Ukrainian and Belarusian
    что - means "what" in Russian (it's "що" in Ukrainian and "што" in Belarusian)
    кто - means "who" in Russian

    Some of those can coincide with other languages of Slavic language family (South Slavic etc).

    To answer you question "why?"... well, they evolved from one proto-language just like, say, modern Dutch, German, English, Swedish and other Germanic languages also evolved from their proto-language.
    So it's kind of like "vad" in Swedish, "was" in German, "what" in English.

    From an outsider's point of view those are petty differences, but for some reason once upon a time people started to accumulate millions of them, and created their own languages. Perhaps some thousands of years ago we all spoke the same "pre-proto-language" and maybe, just maybe, it was much more convenient...
    I personally find Runes (which ancient "Slavs" used too, not just Germanic folks, it's just this fact is not taught in most schools) much more logical than Latin and Cyrillic alphabets. But that's another story.

  • Is the soviet union flag (Hammer and Sickle) offensive?

    Best answer: As far as I'm concerned it's no different to the swastika.
    It's the flag of an oppressive state which killed millions, and was purposefully sexist, racist and homophobic. Also the killing millions thing.
