All that comes to mind is HOLY CRAP
These photos make celibacy look pretty good…
I don’t think I’ve ever thought “What the ****?” as many times as I did here EVER while reading one of these time-suck articles.
You are an apt observation a list. No kidding.
u blind bro! :P
What’s with the carpets on the walls?
Insulation. Helps with soundproofing too.
Rugs cost a lot (handmade rugs can go for tens of thousands) and many times theyre special (from dowry, wedding gift, etc) and people hang them to display them.
But.,.. seriously… thats what you found odd about these pictures?
lol that was my first thought too! Seen enough weirdos in my time to think that these pics are nothing special.
It is great Russian tradition to take photo with carpet. According to the legend photo with Russian style carpet will help to find partner and love.
Houses are old so those are for keeping it warm
for russians having carpet on the wall thats a symbol of wealth, not every russian can afford numerous carpets as they are quite expensive for russian avarage standards, taking a pic with them to have a proof that he actually can affrod
I thought the same thing about the rugs…
Horrible, but we want to conquer the world!!!
Every single thing about these pics is just wrong (except for the face on the hot guy holding the the weird butterfly/rose)
Comments appear here. Now that that’s sorted, these Russian comrades of ours aren’t all that different. If you compare them to the poor of the Usa , you’ll realize we have plenty in common with our overseas comrades.
Absolutely agree with you (
probably they find good matches in the millions of hillbillies in the us of a :)
Oh my…that can’t be unseen…the banana one is by far my favorite..so awkward
My eyes are burning…
Girl with banana from Ukraine)
The guy with the huge forehead and stupid fringe (bangs) also showed up on the Russian wedding pix too. How and why is he on both dating site and wedding ´found randomly´pix? Are these guys all actors for the U.S propaganda campaign or what? That´s weird, explain it someone please.
As a citizen of Russian Federation I can reassure you that both posts are pretty much relevant. The gopnik style bangs with no hair ‘dos used to be popular back in 1990’s, but for some places in Russia, 21st century never really came yet.
At least one of the photos is from Ukraine. Look at the newspaper near the girl with banana. Stupid peasants
My friend, do not call the whole nation “stupid peasants.”
I myself Russian and Ukrainians my brothers by faith and spirit.
P.S.Sorry for my english;)
Well, give russian enough time and they will be from Russia soon :D.
It is soooo… weird I mean it relly good pics but they are weird.
That girl on the 10th pic from the top (left) is pretty hot, by the way.
she has a mask on
Wall-carpets – should be used to cover up the graffiti by her kids – nice lady, but what for baggage? Learn to read the signs!
And what’s with trashing the countryside on a picnic (or is she the only one that prefers melon to the group on stage)? LOL
All these pictures are the “country-side culture”. I am Russian and I live in Moscow, but I’ve been many times in small Russian cities. These people are empty. They don’t read books or newspapers, they don’t have smart friends or relatives; all that they can do – to drink together. Sometimes they watch TV. For the last 25 years they couldn’t see any qualitative films, but they want to be “connected” with world, so, all these amazing “selfy” are just funny copies of pictures or impressions they have seen in cheap films or magazines. This is a life of Russian (Belorus and Ukranian also) province. Cheap carpets on the walls (which they inherited from parents or other relatives) is just the habit because you couldn’t buy good wallpapers in shops. Guns and knives – to show that you are “cool” guy, but actually they are nobody and nobody is afraid of them apart their familiy members. This is only a weak attempt to proof to everybody that you have achieved a strong position in this life; but all of them even don’t have money to buy the ticket to neighbour city or new pants. And of course too much beer and vodka. Useless and stupid life of millions people.
Yeah i was in Moscow in October (from UK, live in Vienna) and everyone there was pretty “normal”. Distinct lack of metal bars though. its pretty much the same in the states out in the unpopulated areas where everyone knows everyone and hasn’t the faintest idea of whats going on in the world.
It’s no different in the Country Ghettos in the US or anywhere for that matter, once you leave the cities and end up in far off removed towns where most people are related this is what happens. Ignorance is not bliss.
Where did you get all that nightmare? Saw 3 your articles, everywhere – is the worst pictures what can be. There are people with bad taste in every nation..what’s your motivation to show “russians” like these? Have never seen even 1% of that in Russian sm.
Agree ! Every nation has its weird people. Don’t judge russians by these pics
Huh! Thats my best friends, I know them all!
I kinda like it ))))
It’s the result some people got for giving a wrong definition to the term “cool”. It’s a “all over the world” situation; traditions and culture particularities are also involved in this.
Some great carpets
The girl in the fourth pic looks a lot like me, wow. (also, the dude holding the red rose is kinda cute…)
I thought these pics were really funny (a couple were a bit sad and desperate), but I think every country has its local nuffies… ever seen the ‘Walmart’ customers?? Or ‘Housos’??? Worth a look and a laugh!
Why is he dude in the bubble bath wearing rubber gloves?
That’s a girl. XD
Actually, they’re pretty identical set-ups to what someone flipping thru a high-fashion magazine might find. Lots of ****-shaming (garbage, poor lighting, guns, no smiling) in those pics too.
Hipster irony, or high-fashion?
There are no words in the dictionary that can describe what went throw my mind as i scrolled down and saw these pictures…. I blacked out a few times from laughing so hard….
Someone threw away a perfectly good girl…
I have a friend who is Russian and she is one of the classiest and well dressed people I know, clearly not a representation of this country as a whole.
This is quite clearly aimed at ridiculing Russians and making Americans see them as inferior, so that when Obomber decides to go to war with Russia the American public won’t bat an eyelid. I’ve not met many Russians, but those that I have are well educated, well informed, respectable people. As for the Americans I’ve met? Well, let’s just say I thought it was a wind up how anyone could be so stupid and ignorant yet think they were superior to any other “race”. Granted, not all Americans are like that. Yet.
It’s a horrible, horrible conspiracy.
How clever you are to have caught it.
Americans are not so much stupid as they are uneducated and filled with propaganda. But, the trouble with ignorance, is that ignorant people are so ignorant, they have no idea how ignorant they are, while informed people are full of self doubt.
Russian people are ugly. Js
Just try to google ‘pretty russian girl’ or ‘handsome russian man’.
If Russia had a Walmart, just imagine what THOSE creatures would look like.
Please… take my eyes…
A lot of stupid comments here. Those are not from dating sites at all!!! It’s not a representation of russian people. Just some dumb people, everyone has in their countries. And frankly speaking people from England are most ugly, it’s proven.
That was stupid
I am not sure whether to laugh or cry…. or both.
I’ve learned two things from this post: apparently it’s a big thing in Russia to have matching Persian rugs on the floor AND the walls… and from the comments, apparently NOBODY has a lot of contact with the Internet because you’re all thinking this is some kind of conspiracy or something. Keep digging around and you’ll find one of these for every country.
These are too pathetic to be funny
Also – yes, there are weirdos everywhere :/
All the people that I know from Russia (and surrounding countries), from both the capitals and some towns, are really cool, smart and talented
looking at all of the comments from Russians maing excuses for them, or asking why only Russians for this article …. it seems the ability to have a laugh at yourself is completely lost on them. If I see photos of our local inbreds, the first thing I would do is the laugh. The last thing I would do is be offended for them, or try to defend them. As for the ‘peasants’ comments directed at Ukraine and Belarus. I’d take their Odessa, Minsk, Kyiv and Kharkiv over your Moscow and St Petersburg. They have retained their culture, not copied it like Russia has.
We all have our issues..
We don’t need to parade them..
