Apart from vodka and amusing movies on YouTube, Russia has a lot more to offer the rest of the world than you would think. It is the largest country in the world and ranks ninth in terms of population, with over 150 million people living inside its borders. These days, Russia doesn’t have a very good reputation. But it goes without saying that Russian culture is unique. So, what is it like to go about your everyday business in this enormous transcontinental country? The Russian people are at the top of the list, according to the evidence. Other notable features include chance encounters with bears; high temperatures; ghostly hospitals; and poor fashion choices. Not to mention a slew of other things that are totally out of this world. Continue reading if you dare to find out more.
Russia’s Seasonal Changes Are Extreme
It’s not just heavy rain during the winter or a lot of sunlight during the summer for some countries. There is a lot of snow in a real Russian winter, and it gets extremely cold, freezing everything and everyone. Even during the summer, Russians don’t have it easy. Winter is when she and her family are covered with snow and ice, while summer is when she is covered with mosquitoes.
In either case, this isn’t something we’d like to repeat every year. As you can see, the eyelashes on the left are quite artistic, and we almost consider them fashionable. As you can see, the eyelashes on the right are quite terrifying.
Bad Parking Will NOT Be Tolerated
Russians don’t waste time when they notice anything that isn’t quite right with the world. This individual noticed a parked automobile blocking another parking place with its back bumper, so he decided to get his chainsaw and chop through the obstructing vehicle to create a way for his own vehicle. If only the owner of the white automobile had parked his vehicle in a reasonable manner, all of this might have been prevented.
There was clearly enough space for two automobiles to be parked side by side. To this, we say, learn how to park properly and avoid taking up two parking spaces when you only need to use one at a time. You don’t want to go back into your automobile and discover that the rear end has been removed.
Bicycle Parking Is Not Allowed Here
It’s never a good idea to throw other people’s stuff away. In this situation, it might make sense. You’ll have to learn a hard lesson here, but try not to park your bike on the street. The Russian driver could not park in what looked like a space in a parking lot because a bike was parked right in the middle.
We can understand the driver’s reasoning for throwing the bicycle into a tree since it is hard to find a parking spot. However, we hope that the owner of the bike could rescue their bike from the tree. Next time, they may think twice before putting their bike where a car belongs.
A Guy With A Blank Sign Arrested For Protesting
There’s no getting around the fact that protesting in Russia is a tricky business. As an example, take this man. In the beginning of the war in Ukraine Moscow’s Red Square was filled with protesters holding blank signs. This man probably wouldn’t even care if it was happening somewhere in Europe.
He was handcuffed for holding up a blank sign in a public place—what a shame. Taking a large piece of paper to Red Square is not a good idea when walking alone. It might get you into trouble with the Russian police.
Trains Have Interesting People On Them
Isn’t this just the cutest thing? Another passenger on the train is a blue-haired woman who appears to have drawn inspiration from an anime comic and is seated next to an older gentleman who has fallen asleep in his seat. When they are together, it is nearly impossible to believe they are from the same planet because they each have their own individual style.
One is bright, cheerful, and almost cartoonish, whilst the other is dressed in more subdued hues and appears more realistic in comparison. It appears as though there is truly a place for everyone in the Motherland. All that is missing from this photo is a bear!
No Amount Of Snow Will Stop This Kid
We immediately think of snow when we think about Russia. Snowstorms and freezing temperatures would normally cause schools to close, but in Russia, schools remain open despite the harshest weather. For example, during the snow-covered schoolyard, students were able to play outside.
Snow didn’t stop one student from having fun on the swing despite the weather. We would not see that in other countries, but anything is possible in Russia. It looks fun to go swinging in the snow if we have the right clothes for it.
Combat Knives Can Be A Hobby In Russia
There is a hobby for everyone. Tennis, basketball, and golf are examples of sports. Poets, potters, and painters are all hobbies for creative people. And then we have the Russians. She likes to play with combat knives. There’s no danger once you get good at it, but it isn’t the safest hobby.
When she’s talking about her book, she seems genuinely intrigued. How do you get started with a hobby that involves combat knives? While we do not have the answer, we support this woman and her hobby as long as she keeps her knives away from us.
After A Car Crash, Russians Build Snowmen
These two gentlemen were engaged in an automobile accident that made them immobilized till the arrival of the authorities. While they waited for the cops, these guys took advantage of their newly acquired spare time and decided to create snowmen with their friends. It’s one of the sweetest things we’ve ever seen a motorist do after a car accident.
Normally, everyone would be stressed and anxious in this kind of situation, but not these gentlemen. They appear to be having a great time as they construct a number of different snowmen. They also took the effort to design a unique visage for one of the characters. That exemplifies commitment.
Russia’s Cold Water Freezes Seal’s Whiskers
What is the temperature in Russia like? The cold is so extreme that even this seal’s whiskers froze up and took on the appearance of an icy catfish. However, this little guy is in no danger. It turns out the seals melt the icicles once they return to the water.
Seals look as if they’re ready to shed those bothersome ice whiskers and dive back below the surface, where water must be warmer than the cold above. A third eyelid protects the seal’s eyes from cold temperatures. There’s no need to worry about this seal since they’re used to it, and it won’t harm him.
Disturbing a Russian Isn’t Safe
This would only be seen in Russia. An unknown bear appeared out of nowhere as the Russian man sat alone on a bench. Anyone else would run from the dangerous animal, far away from it. Russia is different! The man didn’t care about the big furry animal. Instead, he sat calmly down. How could a bear get this man to move?
According to this guy, the bear was nothing more than a minor inconvenience. What’s happening in Russia is unclear to us. From the time we were small, we were taught to run and hide when we saw big animals. In Russia, it seems that the opposite is true.
There’s No Clear Winner
This Russian hospital is a perfect example of why hospitals can be scary places. White walls, long corridors, neon lights, and one-way doors make a great horror movie setting. Hospitals are, therefore, the setting for many horror stories. We will surely have nightmares for months to come after visiting this Russian hospital.
It is impossible to rehabilitate in this environment. It doesn’t take much to make you feel uncomfortable in a medical setting. Just think how frightening it would be if spirits were to roam the halls of this place. Consider the implications of that. The place was haunted, to say the least!
Accepting Putin’s Offer Of Tea Makes Sense
You should accept the offer of the Russian president himself, Vladimir Putin, without hesitation, in case you didn’t know. In this picture, Putin offers tea to his guests. We hope the diplomats ended up doing well, as they declined politely.
The simple explanation might be that they had already drunk enough tea and couldn’t possibly drink anymore. But maybe they knew something that we don’t. Despite the diplomats’ decline, we believe the Russian president was not hurt. To hurt someone’s feelings, you would have to do more than say no to another cup of tea.
Would You Mind Telling Me Which One It Is?
What do you believe to be the real Russia among these three options? Is it the first option that seems bleak and gray? How about option number two, with its romanticized architecture? In option three, you can play a horror game set in a dystopian world.
Where war is about to break out, which sounds like the perfect setting for a video game. What do you think? Russia seems to be perceived differently by everyone all over the world. We’re sure the residents have some opinions on this!
There Is No Limit To The Type Of Car You Can Drive In Russia
It’s not uncommon to see cars with paint from other cars in Russia. We did a double-take because we don’t think we have seen anything like this in a long time. These retro red cars are what the Russians want. Decorating your car and giving it a makeover without changing anything is such a fun idea.
It probably won’t cost you a lot of money. This paint job is truly a work of art, not only because it is impressive but also because it fooled us for a second. It is a cool car that we would enjoy driving around town.
Driving On An Empty Highway Can Lead To An Accident
There may be other places around the world where it occurs, but it occurred in Russia this time. Two drivers collided when they were on an empty street. The car on the other side tried to turn left but didn’t slow down, which resulted in this accident.
Driving slower and being more accommodating to other motorists could have easily prevented this. Both drivers deserve a speedy recovery, and we hope there were no serious injuries. In contrast to these two, the ideal driver keeps other drivers in mind.
What’s The Point Of Changing When You Can Remain The Same?
Buying a new car is something everyone enjoys. It’s why car manufacturers release a new model every couple of years, to give consumers something to look forward to and introduce fancy upgrades like faster acceleration, safer braking systems, and overall, an improved driving experience. A different mantra is followed by the Russian company that produces LADA cars.
What’s the point of changing something that works? The company hasn’t changed its top-selling model at all. They seem to operate under the motto “Perfect From Day One.”. We love the idea of loyalty to a brand, but we wonder whether this is safe. Consider how much safety regulation has changed in the last couple of decades.
Russian Trucks Can Cross Water
It’s not something you come upon every day. This vehicle, which was transporting a huge shipment container, was thrown into the river after being freed. We haven’t heard of any automobiles that are capable of driving in deep water, so we are surprised that this is even conceivable with trucks. Because of his ability to travel on water, the truck driver must have felt like he was Jesus himself.
Consider the first truck driver who was instructed to drive through a body of water. They must have been terrified at first, but they must have felt tremendous relief when they realized they had made it through to the other side.
Pee in Public = Get Famous
Here’s one method for discouraging people from peeing in public places. Those who pee in public are warned that they will be videotaped, and the clip will be put to YouTube as a warning. A fine is normally issued in other nations (in the United States, you may even be required to register as a sex offender).
But in Russia, the punishment is public humiliation in front of the entire world. The Russians are not to be trifled with. Is it the responsibility of someone to film and broadcast these videos on the internet? Is there a place to work? There are so many questions we have.
Don’t Let Putin Sit In Front Of You
The person sitting behind you on the bus will probably make some sort of contact with your back if you ride a bus. In any case, it is an uncomfortable situation whether they kick it, lie on it, or move around.
Here, we have two men who forget they are sitting behind Vladimir Putin, Russia’s most powerful person. There is no hiding their terror from their facial expressions. In all seriousness, it might not be the best idea in the world to kick the back of Putin’s chair.
A Real Russian Life Hack
The sensation of having the handle forced down on your hand, leaving a painful impression, is well-known to everyone who has ever had to carry a bucket of water. This Russian life tip is quite beneficial, so keep it in mind the next time you have to carry a large bucket of water.
It’s also quite simple: simply grab a wrench and use it as the handle for your bucket. We have to recognize that this has the potential to change our lives. We are always on the lookout for new life hacks, and this one is particularly useful. We’re not sure if hauling buckets of water is still a typical occurrence in Russia, though.
But This Isn’t The Happiest Place
Some families enjoy taking their children to Disneyland, where they can ride the rides and interact with characters from their favorite Disney movies. Patriot Park is a popular attraction in Russia. This is a theme park that celebrates the military and allows youngsters to ride tanks rather than rollercoasters. It is possible for parents and their children to fire weapons together.
However, we may have a different idea of what constitutes an enjoyable family activity. Russians should not be trifled with, and we’ve said it before and we’ll say it again: don’t mess with them. There is a way to have fun in any nation, and Russia, being Russia, never fails to astonish us with the delights that it offers. So, have you made arrangements to travel to the Motherland?
Soldiers From The Russian Army Don’t Play With Their Guns
We looked into why this soldier would bring his scary rifle so close to their face, and our investigation led us to this conclusion. It turns out that this is a normal practice for checking the cleanliness of the pistol.
Remove the rifle’s base and barrel, as well as its shooting mechanism, and you’ll be able to see down the barrel to make sure it’s clean almost immediately. The guys at the front, on the other hand, appear to be dressed as youngsters in costumes. A person who holds their firearm in that manner does not strike us as being particularly cool.
Covering News Can Get You Arrested
Whenever problematic issues arise, the Russian government tends to cover them up. This includes arresting those who disagree with the government—our opposition activist reports getting arrested along with other activists like him. We also saw him getting arrested while we were on live television.
You can say whatever you want, but the Russian government is certainly not sitting in its hands. The Russian police must have been working overtime to arrest this activist so quickly. Hopefully, the young man will return to reporting the news soon after he is released.
Funny And Harmless Pranks Are Common In Russia
Russia is known for its pranksters, and this reputation is well-deserved. Most of the time, their pranks are intense and include bodily feats, but this time was different. This prank is as innocuous as it is amusing, but it is also rather disgusting. This prankster placed false shoeprints in the snow covering this car’s windscreen then squirted apple juice on top of them to make them appear more realistic.
We wouldn’t want to be the ones that have to deal with the automobile when they return. We are aware of the facts, yet to the owner, it appears as though someone has peed on their car. Because no one is injured, it is a joke that we can all get behind. Sometimes the most effective pranks are the ones that are the simplest to pull off.
Jesus Disapproves Of Test Cheating
Next, a Russian student cheated on his exam using Jesus. He had framed photographs of Jesus on his desk to make the exam inspector think he needed heavenly help. But this pupil is a sinner. An iPad is framed in one of the photographs.
An inspector’s gaze could be diverted to another image with exam answers. We are not fervent Christians, yet we think this student did well. It’s got to be one of the most creative methods to cheat on a test. Interesting!
T-Shirts You Can’t Read Shouldn’t Be Bought
Driving slower and being more accommodating to other motorists could have easily prevented this. Both drivers deserve a speedy recovery, and we hope there were no serious injuries. In contrast to these two, the ideal driver keeps other drivers in mind.
It may have originated in a pride parade in a more liberal country and somehow made it to the United States. There would probably be an uproar in Russia if more men wore this shirt. It might also be hilarious!
Visiting A Russian Orphanage With The England Football Team
During their visit to Russia, the England football team visited a local orphanage. A cruel joke was made at their expense by the English press. The England football team does not have a great reputation throughout the world. In this newspaper, it was jokingly reported that a 6-year-old orphan named Vladimir had said it was heartbreaking to see these little faces without hope.
I would have guessed the polar opposite. We must not forget, however, that England advanced to the finals of UEFA Euro 2020, where they were defeated by Italy. In general, it wasn’t a particularly bad year for the English. What do you think about it? Tell us in the comment section.
Avoid Falling Into a Frozen Lake While Visiting
There is no question that there has been some supernatural involvement in this situation. Across the lake was a person driving their automobile in the opposite direction. The weight of their vehicle proved to be too much for the snowy surface, resulting in the vehicle coming to a stop. Fortunately, the driver was able to jump out of the sinking car while still underwater, swim back to the surface, and walk away from the massive gaping hole.
This is what we refer to as a “miracle.” We’re very certain we’ve seen this sequence before in an action film. Or perhaps that is simply the most Russian thing to do. They are certainly well-known as warriors, and they are accustomed to working in the cold.
Bears Can Be Raised As Pets
You may want to consider taking this harmless bear on as a pet if you are willing to take care of it. Despite its furry appearance, this creature seems like a cuddly creature that you’d want to snuggle up with.
Underneath its beastly exterior lies a kind and playful soul, just waiting for someone to love and pay attention to it. What do you think of this bear? We think it looks like it is looking for a tasty snack and someone to scratch its belly. Take a look at how it rolls. We think it’s having a good time!
Russia Is Well-Known For The Russians Who Live There
An example of a game show presenter asking a contestant what Russia is famous for may be seen in this video. The contestant’s response was succinct and to the point: Russians. In terms of technicality, he is accurate. Our best guess is, however, that the host was not prepared for such a response. Also, we appreciate how the competitor maintains a serious demeanor while he responds, indicating that he is confident in his response.
We can assure you that if you travel to Russia, you will come across Russians. They will be present in every region of Russia, no matter where you are located. Many other things in Russia are well-known, including winter sports, borscht (a type of soup), vodka, the Kremlin, and Putin, to name just a few examples. Unexpectedly, Russians were not the first thing that sprang to mind while thinking about the country.
One Thing Never Changes In Russia
It doesn’t matter how many times Russians attempt to repair their LADA automobile, they always discover that something else has to be fixed. This man has been attempting to start his automobile virtually every season for the past many years. This man understands exactly what he needs to do no matter how chilly or rainy the weather is outside.
Every time, he opens the hood of the automobile and begins working on the engine. We were going to give up at some time. This individual, however, is not one of them! The Russians are tenacious. For as long as they are able, they will continue to work on their automobile, and given their devotion to the Lada brand, we don’t expect them to give up on it anytime soon.
People At A Russian Party
This unusual gang of Russians should be the subject of their own reality television program. We’d be interested in seeing it. In preparation for a night out in the Motherland, each of them has developed a distinct appearance and characteristic stance as they stand for the camera.
Several people are in this picture, including a female bodybuilder, a man with a robotic hand, a model, albino twins, a huge, shirtless tattooed man, and a woman dressed in a more informal way than the others. Honestly? We would welcome the opportunity to join them. We’re interested in seeing where these folks go to have a good time. What nightclubs do they frequent? We’ll confess that we’d want to be their buddies.
Protesting In Russia Is Difficult
This is absurd. We all know the Russian government’s stance on protesting. Sadly, this is hardly an exception. A group of Russian activists tried to stand up for their beliefs. The police responded by forming a circle around them, preventing them from leaving or being seen.
All that effort on the part of the protestors? We believe that the police can be more useful in other areas. The police should be there to serve the public, not the government. We hope that no one was detained and that everyone returned securely and peacefully to their homes.
Illegal Activity by Russian Bears in Backyards
What really is happening in Russia? What is it about bears hanging around in people’s backyards that gives the impression that they are plotting something? Imagine waking up in the morning and discovering something like this in your yard. As frightening as it may be to have two bears so near to you and your family.
These bears appear to be friendly from a distance, and they appear to be just interested in one another. When there are bears on your property, who do you call for help? Is this a recurrent occurrence in the Russian Federation? I’m not really sure what these bears are doing here in the first place.
Knock-Knock. Who Is It?
Despite the fact that they were right outside their door, this friendly bear decided to pay them a visit. They don’t appear to be afraid at all; rather, they appear to have decided it would be okay to snap a photo with their uninvited guest. It appears like this bear was looking for a warm location to spend the night, and by the looks of things, he or she has found it.
It’s the Russian Federation. Even bears have to bundle up when it gets cold outside. It is incredible to witness someone become friends with a bear without being terrified for their life. We believe that everything is possible in Russia if you only open your eyes and look around you.
No Protesting. No Exceptions. Not Even For Greenpeace.
In spite of the fact that it seems strange, Russia’s anti-protest legislation includes demonstrations for a greener Earth and recycling. In most nations, this is not seen as a form of protest. For the most part, this involves raising awareness and disseminating information about recycling your rubbish or doing good for the environment. As we all know, things run differently in Russia than they do in the United States.
These officers were tasked with picking up the unfortunate individual who was hiding behind the disguise and transporting them away. This individual is undoubtedly having a horrible day. Not only are they dressed in garbage can costumes, but they have also been apprehended by not one, but five police officers, who physically drag them away from the scene.
Do Not Mess With A Bomb-Cleaning Babushka
A Babushka, or grandma, is the only place you’ll see someone sanitize a real bomb as if it were nothing at all. She is cleaning the bomb with an ordinary mop, which is making us a little uncomfortable. Is it worthwhile to put your life in danger when cleaning bombs? It’s one career that we’d be happy to delegate to someone else.
We choose occupations that keep us safe and provide us with a dental insurance policy. Okay, so we don’t require a dental plan, but we can’t disagree with the importance of safety. It is the first and most important priority. We have no sympathy for someone who is using cleaning bombs for the first time.
Russian Cop Chased By Wolves On Road
In the course of doing his work, this Russian police officer was attacked by a pack of wolves that emerged from nowhere and pursued him away. We’re guessing that the only one who took pleasure in this circumstance was the driver that was pulled over by the cop and then had to flee for his or her life.
It has to have been scary for both the motorist and the police officer to be in that situation. When the wolves noticed the automobiles’ lights on the vacant road, they were most likely going about their business as usual. We hope that the officer was able to return safely to their patrol car following this terrifying incident.
What’s Up With The Emergency Situations Ministry?
You may not be aware that the Russian Ministry of Emergency Situations has launched a TikTok account and has been uploading some really fascinating videos on the platform. A ministry employee is on hand to demonstrate what to do in the event of an emergency situation. Unfortunately, we are unable to predict what situation might cause us to perform a delicate balance on two axes.
However, we have to acknowledge that this is quite an accomplishment. On occasion, we are unable to stand on our own two feet. Prior to joining the ministry, did this individual have a job in a circus or as a professional athlete? If we want to find out more, we’ll have to follow their TikTok account, we assume.
