It is bad and wrong to stereotype people by their ethnicity. I know Germans with a wicked sense of humour. A French guy who is nails and a Cloggie who does not smoke pot. My mate Pete Singh the Brick Dust King does not run a corner shop. He deals heroin cut with brick dust. Hence his name.

But the Russians are getting on my tits.

We had the rich ones appearing in Switzerland and France ten years ago, but now the rest have come out of their box. They have no manners. If you hold a door open they will barge through. If you say "excuse me" because they are in your way they will glance at you and not move. Which means you have to step back then walk through and clatter the bastards which gets you "Was that strictly necessary?" from the bird.

Is it just me or do other people feel the fucking Russians are a bigger threat to civilisation than the Iranians getting the bomb?

Arrogant rude, queue- jumping cunts........ and that's when they're relaxing on holiday.


Then there's their charming habit in the all- inclusives of piling up their plates a foot high with meat, having their photo taken behind it with a knife and fork in their paws, then walking away from it..... cunts.

F*cking horrors!

Was on the west coast of india travelling up to Goa and came across quite a few Ivan's and their horrendous family's in cheap-sh*t resorts. Top tip: Do not stay in a hotel where one of the menu/signage languages is Russian - you WILL regret it!

Only beaten by the Chinese to be honest. A ruder more inconsiderate group of people i have never met. It's the continual spitting you see...

Bet my laptop gets destroyed by a Denial of Service Attack tonight now!

I went on a touring holiday there when it was the USSR, early 80s. Moscow - Siberia - Moscow - Leningrad. The hotels we stopped in the staff were either trying to buy your western clothes - even the ones you were wearing - or if you wanted some sort of help, info or service from them, all you got was a negative answer often accompanied by a sneer. The tour guide we had could speak good English up to the point were you asked an awkward or potentially embarrassing question, then he'd clam up. Miserable bunch of cunts on a good day.

Of all the only countries I've ever visited, it's the only one that felt truly "foreign". A shithole.

Edit, whilst in Siberia, we spent 3 days on the Trans-Siberian railway. Note I didn't say "Express", 'cos it never got above 40mph and would stop for ages in the middle of nowhere for no apparent reason. After we got off the train - stinking as there were no real washing facilities - we spent a night in a hotel in a town the name of which escapes me. The memorable thing about that hotel was the bog seats were made of of the coarsest chipboard I've ever seen, that had had a coat of varnish put on it. I strongly suspect they'd been fitted to the bogs only in the rooms the Westerners were put in.

There was obviously a weekly tourist menu. We flew overnight from Moscow to Chabarovsk and with the time difference, got the same meals for 2 days - and they were shit. On the second week, we got the same meals as we'd had on the first week. I never thought a MaccyDee could taste so good when I got back to the UK.

The hotel in Chabarovsk had the only bar in town and the police came around at 20:00 to close it. Apart from us, there were only 3 or 4 locals in it, all of whom looked distinctly dodgy characters.

Bumping into Spams was bad on holidays but a run-in with that bunch of peasants is the pits.

Misfortune once, in Malta about 8 years ago. They are from the absolute pits of Mordor.

1 reason why I keep putting off a return-visist to Sunny Cypres, apparantly these fukcing Orc's are there as well.

Mutter, oil roubles, mutter, Bolshie buggars, muttter, fantastic birds, grumble...

Not much to choose between them but you're right them Chinese are pretty horrible, they'll just bash into you before walk around you. If you see them you need to stand still feet apart, brace up and give them some elbow.

I stayed in Moscow last year. Russian men, arrogant and ignorant. Women arrogant and ignorant and very hot! They dress very well, high heels, always made up and on the whole slim and pretty. Then I came home and saw the land slugs we have here ...

The Chinese are awful also. We are far too nice for our own good!

ARRSE does nothing but slag off the Cold War Warriors but at least we held the Ruskies at bay. They didn't all come over to the UK on our watch, I can tell you.

No thanks, no medals, we just did our duty free.

I know one Russian, he stays with a bloke I know and picks turnips and stuff like that. He's alright. Apart from the Adidas 2 stripe joggies, Aldi trackie top, Gola trainers and tattoos that look like they've been done by a pissed up toddler. A fucking horrendous mix.

He also has a fantastic looking sister who's on the game, the overly expensive fucking slag.

I took my ex on holiday to Cyprus a few years ago and there was a few Russian families in our hotel, and they lived up to there reputation pefectly. I fucked them off though as I well aware of them after spending around 6 months working offshore from Russia's north coast, crew changing through Moscow and a shithole town called Naryan Mar. I think the Engish equivalent of these towns are London and Blythe, respectively.

I think they just look down on politeness as a weakness and they all want to be alpha males. They liked to give it the bully boy know-it-all atitude on the rig I was working on. Usually made it harder for them though as they generally knew fuck all, and went in a right huff if you had to stop them and show them something. Which was every two minutes with some of the knuckle draggers.

Most of the women out there were on the game, and they were pretty fucking fit aswell. There was a Russian family that had a table next to ours every night at the hotel in Cyprus, and the teenage daughter was smoking hot. The Dad didn't seem to bothered that she dressed like an absolute whore. In fact he probably encouraged it the cunt.

It was fucking great!! I'd say to our lass '' Look at the fucking state of that!!'' which ensured I could have a good eyefull at the same time.
