There are several myths about Russia, they come from different sources but have no actual proof. They are wide spread not only among foreigners but among Russians too. I think it is rather interesting to find out more about Russian culture and history and get rid of usual myths. I will consider the wide spread myths: Russians drink vodka, Russians' laziness, Russians' tyranny and blood-thirstiness.

Yesterday morning Ive got a lot of messages from my friends lets go to beat gays, meet at Pushkinskaya metro. It seemed that all graduates from Moscow University gathered in the centre of Moscow to beat gays. So what happened then

This book by Henry Metelmann is memoir diary of Wehrmacht soldier in Russia. As Panzer driver he fought in the Crimea, saved by a miracle in the battle of Stalingrad and began long winter escape route back to Germany. He was taken as a prisoner by Russians and was released. He learned Russian language, dealt with people he met and tried to answer the main question why is he in this awful war. The diary of ordinary soldier is truthful and tells much about Russian people in the Second World War.
