In the name of World Peace and in mollifying Russophobia I wish to acquaint the world with the very evident good health and good cheer (if a bit daft) of Russian Millennials. They certainly seem more mentally- and socially well-adjusted and physically healthy than any large group of American kids their age that I’ve seen of this generation. Posted by a British documentary filmmaker for RT, Peter Scott. It features lots and lots of bikini snowboarding, garrulous conversations and cultural pastimes, both modern and ancient.
Scott had lived in Russia for 7 years at the time he posted this, initially as an English teacher in the Siberian city of Omsk. Despite his typical British self-effacement regarding his language skills, these sound pretty impressive to me.
If you read my previous comments about the prevailing Western Cold War stereotype about Russian women, you will see stunning confirmation of how completely false that was in this clip!
