I like to know russia very much. Specially russian literature, history, culture and its people. It is the largest country in the world. Many scientists, poets, leaders are born in this country. So far I know, the level of education in many institutions are also of very good standard. People r friendly and mostly addicted to drugs. I read it in magazines and newspapers, how much is right I do not know although, I fee an attraction for the russian people and its culture. The great poer Maxim Gorky, Leo Tolstoy, Boris Pasternak, Alexander pushkin, Lelin, Trotsky, Alexander shalzhonetsin are the famous people in the world. Once upon a time, Russia will rise again and transform into a super power. I do not know the exact time but is is my real guess. There r many palces for enjoyment and visit. We can learn many things from russia. I have a good knack for russia so that I am learning  russian here in Dhaka, Bangladesh to the russian and its people. Anybody can help me to learn russian properly, effectively and correctly to read the russian books , magazines, newpapers and various periodicals to know more about russia.

Policy, army and the government… All it does not concern this forum.

Why do you say such awful words that  "Russia will be destroyed…" and so on? At least it's not tolerant. People: Russians, Georgians, Moldavians and others just depend on dirty politician games… Simple people (nations) are not guilty in what governments do…

Yes, Lela, people suffer because governments of countries adjust nations against each other. Often people are informed wrong about reality and nations collide… it's very bad all this. I have some fear for fate of nations…

As for me, I belive neither Putin, nor Medvedev, nobody of any government of any state. They need to collide nations because of very very big money is involved in all that stuff…

Russian Federation

 Everyone of u exactly knows that the government can't have a chance to do anything without the will of people. U remember that the great revolution of October 1917 happened not because of the great communist ideologists whose power was located in Europe in the 19th century. It was for people were tired of nobless and absolute monarchy. If it's wrong, u know that people would never let communists or any other to conquer them. Well if person is told that he must hate russians who occupied the territory of his country and he/she does hate it's almost his fault!

Simple people (nations) are not guilty in what governments do… 

What depth of phrase! This phrase I'll take myself to learning and repeat every day. I want to ask you dear: Who elects this government? Did not the people? 65% of Russians support govertment of russia.

 In Georgia: the Georgians are to blame: they did not need to enter their troops … in Abchasia and there to kill innocent people.
