In 1989 Boris Yeltsin, at times just a Soviet parliament and High Council member, has visited United States of America with an unofficial visit. The program of the visit consisted of visiting different landmarks like a Lindon Johnes Space center in Texas etc, but Yeltsin also wanted to see how regular Americans live so he headed directly to the grocery store he saw on the street. The guy which followed him on a trip was telling later that this supermarket shocked first Russian president too much. When they got into bitcoin 20 february 1989 store, as one of the guys remember, the manager appeared and helped them to see the store in detail.
Yeltsin asked how many different goods are in store. The store staff answered that there is around 30,000 different things for sale now. Does my interpreter misheard the seller? So he was really in a shock look at his face and on a manager’s face. Soviet Union was a total failure! No food, no decent clothing, no freedom, no nothing!
West was, and is just fine. Rubbish,you are the ones brain-washed now. Russia today is the ONLY country trying to restore decency and Christianity to Europe. Thank you ER this story was the best one I have seen in here. It’s not that the people in the west want to look down at Russia the opposite is true, we want to know Russian way of life and to share what we have. Talking about brainwashed people, you seem to be a very good example. Russia has the highest percentage of drug users in the community, the percentage of abortions among women is also very high.
The average length of life of the Russian man barely exceeds 60 years. Demographic projections are also against Russia. I do not mention even alcoholism. Russia wants to save the morally rotten west?
Look in the mirror And make order in your backyard. When the Iron Curtain fell, a friend of mine brought newspapers from Austria. There was a table comparing prices in different supermarkets, Lidl vs. Same was here in Romania, staying in line for hours to buy bread, milk, meat, etc. A lot of food with no TASTE! Out of season fruit and vegetables are grown in Mexico. They get sprayed with a wax like coating to prevent insects and mold growth while they are shipped around the country.
That coating also traps any pesticides onto the fruits or vegetables. I have never seen such a sight as your market in America. Your store had one choice per item, USA had ten choices, more or less. Have things improved in Russian markets these days?
Do you mean Supermarkets in America have only one choice or Russia? Either way Russia is cool I just wish we had a better relationship. I meant Supermarkets in Russia used to havr only one chioce per item, from what I saw. Here in my little college town of 30,000 people we have Wal-Mart, Kroger, Meijer and Aldi stores to go to.
