Lastly, I understand that there are exceptions to every rule.
I thought it was very strange and obviously a terrible idea, but since I’m outcome independent, it didn’t bother me.
I have noticed literally no difference in the level of problems I’m about to describe between women from Russia and women from any of the smaller FSU countries.
So just remember that when I say “Russian” in this article, I really mean Russian FSU women as well.
When I say “Russian women,” I mean not only women from Russia, but women from any former Soviet Union (FSU) country, including Ukraine, Belarus, Latvia, etc.
Most of the problematic women I encountered were indeed from Russia, but many were from its satellite countries as well.
