Once, I had been told that Russians never smile.

Recently, I heard a statement: All Russians are mafia.

What is YOUR association with word "Russian"?

(Please, be frank and open)

My brother is a gymnast. He has been trained by Russian coaches every day for the past 14 years. They are very hard working, dedicated and good people. Some of the best people I know.

I appreciate any honest answer. That is what I am trying to figure out: what is our image in eyes of foreigners, and why? MaaaD, could you please explain, why the word "Russian" associated [for you] with "hookers"?

Well because the russian mafia in dubai where the first to exploit the girls and bring them here so you will find that back in the day most of the hookers were russian (and when i say russian i mean all the formet soviet union ukraine, kazakh, etc .. )

That is the point. If you tried to figure out "who are they", you would surprisingly find that most of them are not Russians. They came from poorest regions, where there are no opportunities (or very little opportunities) for women. Most of "Russian" Russian females are educated and able to earn money other ways. Besides, they have high value of morality. Still, why foreigners are not distinguishing them? Why word "hooker" is not associated with "Uzbek", "Kazakh", etc, but "Russian"?
