As you know, I have worked for very short periods in Russia, and had a neutral impression of Russian people. However, I am afraid that the behaviour of Russia in general, as a nation, in waging this war, and of Russian individuals in targeting civilians with murder and rape has removed any positive thoughts I may have had. What makes it even worse is people like you who pretend to be civilised and educated defending these actions.I fancy that similar remark about Afro-American or about representatives of LGBT community would not be tolerated here.
As for the Russians then why not...
Have you indeed worked in Russia? How had you came to the country with such a population (as you describe it)?
I will certainly not be travelling to Russia again in my lifetime, even though I had hoped one day to visit St Petersburg and the Hermitage.
