English-Russia Blog [12 May 2012|03:18pm]

Hi everyone!

I'm currently working on a new project to share thoughts/views/experiences of what life is really like in Russia and the UK/USA. I've just returned to the UK after 10 years teaching English in Russia. I'm an active blogger myself, but would be very interested to hear from others!

If you have something to say about life/culture/language in the Russia/UK/USA, then give me a shout!

Подпиши и передай другому! [11 Nov 2010|03:04pm]

On the site www.putinavotstavku.ru Russian citizens put their names down under an appeal for Putin's resignation titled "Putin must go" (read its English translation). Signatures have been collected since 10 March 2010.

Демонстрант держит плакат ПУТИН ДОЛЖЕН УЙТИ во время запрещенного властями митинга в ДЕНЬ ГНЕВА 20 марта на Пушкинской площади в Москве

За время пребывания Путина на посту президента и премьер-министра в стране так и не были проведены жизненно важные для страны реформы (военная, судебная, ЖКХ и др.), хотя доходы от нефти и газа позволяли это сделать. Власть с стране перешла в руки клана Путина, в котором главную роль играют чекисты. Кремль взял под контроль основные СМИ, а выборы превратил в фикцию. Подавляется свобода слова и собраний. В стране снова появились политзаключенные. Прозвол чиновников и милиции принял небывалые маштабы. Начатая Путиным вторая чеченская война, унесшая жизни тысяч мирных граждан, до сих пор не закончена и продолжает плодить террористов. Не было проведено должного расследования взрывов домов в 1999 году, терактов в театре на Дубровке и в Беслане, убийств правозащитников и журналистов.

Пока Путин у власти реальные реформы в стране невозможны, поэтому мы должны добиваться его отставки и возврата страны на демократический путь развития.

«Путинизм - это уродливое детище, моль попавшая в Кремль за подкладкой ельцинского пиджака, разросшаяся и принявшаяся пожирать все самое лушее, накопленное и сохраненное многострадальной, доброй и великой страной! Путинизм - это ситема построенная на тотальной лжи. Она боится правды как черт святой воды. Россияне, говорите Правду и путинизм рухнет.»

If anybody knows anything about... [03 Nov 2008|04:26pm]

 Hi guys!
I'm Natasha (Natalia)
Well im 16, a junior in highschool, and 14 years ago i was adopted from Russia. I was born in a city/town called: Chiliabinx (spelled wrong sorry). My parents have never hid this from me and i've always wanted to go back and see what its like. Does anybody know this town?

This summer my mom actually got tickets for my family and i to go to Russia. I was soo excited and i could not wait to see where i was born. Unfortunatly we were not able to go because I am still considered a Russian Citizen and if i went there, i would not be able to come back to the Americas because i have not yet denounced my citizenship.  Has this happened to anybody?? Why is Russia being so strict about it??

It would be really great to know about the place i was born since i will not be able to go over there until i denounce my citizenship (cant until im 18). 

If anybody knows anything and would be kind enough to share, please do!

Hey everyone!
My name is Polina and I was born in the magnificent city of Moscow, Russia. I am 100% Slavic and proud of it ^_^ I can speak Russian, German, and English, but I mostly speak English on LJ. I currently reside in the US, but I visit my family in Moscow every summer and winter (i got back a couple of days ago). I am in love with my Slavic heritage and am happy that other people love it as well. You can contact me by MSN which is on my profile. Paka!

Hello everyone [21 Jun 2007|08:08pm]

I am a trance vocalist and also a Slavophile :-) While the most slavic I can claim is being a small bit Polish, still I love slavic culture and love to learn about it. I work with several slavic producers, a good friend of mine being Novosibirsk's own Shifted Reality, and someday I hope to visit Russia. I need to learn Russian first though which seems impossibly difficult.

I don't like the friction that exists between Russia and the United States, although I understand the history there. Our two countries actually have a lot in common, and my experience has shown that for the most part, the Russian people and Americans have a lot in common in our fundamental spirit and outlook on life.

Looking forward to delving more into the culture through this livejournal community, and learning more about slavic culture. :-)

Небогатая Украина станет нищей рабыней жирующего Израиля? [26 Mar 2007|12:47am]

Не акцентируя внимание народа на опаснейшем законе о холокосте, тихонько приняв его вместе с законом о репрессиях на Украине, произраильские силы далее будут протаскивать закон о выплате Украиной юридически нелепых крупных "компенсаций за утраченное имущество еврейских общин Украины", угрожая несогласным тюремным заключением на основании перед этим принятого ими закона о холокосте. И если эти законы они протащат, то и так ныне небогатая Украина станет нищей рабыней жирующего Израиля на все века! "

Hi, all!

I'm here to ask for a quick yet grandiose favor on your part. I'm in the process of conducting a research study that involves a survey that targets those born in any of the former Soviet Union republics. I'm looking for people who have immigrated to the United States at age 12 or below and are currently anywhere from age 18 to 40. Unfortunately, I cannot compensate those participating in the survey, but I really hope some of you will take 15 minutes to fill it out. It is completely anonymouse. I'm looking for as representative a group as I can get from individuals in this population, so if you know of anyone who would qualify, please, pass this on to them.

To take the survey, please go to http://www.musail.com/ or email me at webensATgmail.com. If you have any trouble with the website, please let me know. It is by no means complete. Within the next several days, I will be adding things about my research (i.e., "Layers of Identity in 'Russian'-Americans") to the website as well as placing references and such on the topic. If you have any other input, please send me an email.

Behind the cut is the text of the flyer that I've posted regarding this project.Collapse )

Thank you!

(this is crossposted; sorry!)
