Background


Well if you are a certain Russian author named Mrs. Elena Davydova then the answer is a pretty solid yes.

It seems that Mrs. Davydova has a great deal of general respect for our limey compatriots in jolly ol’ England.

But truth be told..

I think this article could have easily held true for any number of Western Men who naturally have a great deal of appreciation for a traditional Russian Lady.

The article itself was an interesting read.

But if I didn’t know any better..

I would say that the Brits have an even more interesting fixation on Russian Women.

But then again who wouldn’t?

Why older British men make ideal husbands for Russian beauties
by former female Playboy executive
“Elena Davydova argues that British men make much better husbands than Russians, who can be still living with their mothers up to the age of 55”
By WILL STEWART
British men of a certain age make ideal husbands for younger, glamorous Russian women – even if they do have some strange habits, according to a new best-selling book in Moscow.
Watch this fascinating video of 24 year old Kseniya Simonova and you will begin to see the emotional depth and intensity that so many women from the FSU have when it comes to the arts.
Once again I’m very happy to see someone with her incredible level of beauty and talent getting some much deserved international recognition.

Her work is an excellent illustration of the suffering and fortitude that so often comes hand in hand with the history and culture of these women.

Once again I’m very happy to see someone with her stunning combination of beauty and talent getting some much deserved international recognition.

Russian Women - Lera 19

Patriarch Kirill is a piviotal religious figure in Russia since he is one of the Leaders of the Russian Orthodox Church.

His words carry a great deal of weight and I believe he’s trying to further endorse the critical role that Russian Women play in keeping the social and cultural fabric of this country intact.

I have been to various Russian Villages as he has and I can also validate the strength and fortitude these women have in keeping their households and communities together inspite of often overwhelming struggles and hardships.

I’m really glad that he made the following statements and brought more attention to these everyday heroines.

Moscow, May 25, Interfax – Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia considers women the stronger sex, as they have proved to be more psychologically sturdy in Russia’s tough environment.
“Men happen to be frailer. The upheavals of 1990s caused many of them to break down, but women had more vigor to endure the stress,” Patriarch said at a meeting with a youth audience of five thousand people at the Izmaylovo sport complex.
Answering their questions, he mentioned sport achievements as an example of women’s courage: “women win our country most of Russia’s gold medals in sport.” These Patriarch’s words have received a stormy ovation.
“An individual comprises both spirit and body, and human strength depends not only on its physical component. In this regard, women are the stronger sex,” Patriarch Kirill said.
He mentioned that he had to travel a lot around Russia. “Almost every village has some kind of an amateur talent group. Who sings in a choir? Women do, and sometimes they are accompanies by a drunk accordionist,” Patriarch said.
According to him, the same is true for many village schools, libraries, post offices, local administration where women have to play the lead.

Latvia's Blond Army Latvia

The Ex-Soviet country of Latvia has come up with an ingenious way to put themselves on the map.

They just recently held their first annual “Blonde Parade” in the capital city of Riga. The locals decided to fight the “blues” associated with their serious economic contraction with an overwhelming touch of “pink” instead.

I have to admit it certainly brought a big grin to my face to learn about it.

And I’m sure it will for you too.  😉

POSITIVE ENERGY
Blonde Parade Lifts Spirits in Gloomy Latvia
Latvians may be feeling depressed as a result of the economic crisis which has hammered the Baltic state, but over 500 blonde women did their best to lift spirits in Riga on Sunday with a parade and other “Blonde Weekend” events.
The global economic crisis has hit the Baltic state of Latvia particularly hard and left the population feeling blue. But one group of Latvian women has taken a novel approach to fighting the pervasive feeling of doom and gloom.
On Sunday, a procession of more than 500 blondes paraded through the capital Riga wearing pink and white. Many were escorted by lap dogs wearing the same cheerful hues. Their goal: to use their beauty to shine a little light into the dark mood caused by the global downturn.
Though it was far from being a protest march, some women used the opportunity to counter stereotypes. “I am beautiful, but I’m not dumb,” Ilone Zigure told the news agency AFP. The student added that she hopes that those of her countrymen who are depressed about the economic crisis will find her “positive energy” contagious.
It’s a sentiment that many observing the parade shared. “Finally, something positive,” one 70-year-old woman watching the parade told AFP. “I just can’t stand listening to people talk about the crisis anymore.”
The parade was just part of a range of events making up Riga’s “Blonde Weekend,” which also included a golf tournament, a fashion show, a ball and a drawing contest for kids. The Latvian Blondes Association, which organized the events, hoped to use any proceeds from the weekend’s activities toward a playground for handicapped children.

Russian Women - A Natural Masha

Now I admit the following article might be a little biased since it came from the english edition of the Moscow Times..

But Hey..

I don’t think I could have done a better job writing such an inspired article about our favorite Russian Women myself.

But in anycase..

I can CERTAINLY relate to this guy.

And at the same time..

I’m sure many of you can too.

The Essence of Russia: Devushki, Zhenshchiny, Babushki
12 May 2009
(By Eastern Europe, Paolo Casciato, Dow Public Affairs Leader for Russia, Greece, Turkey)
I believe Russia is a country of women. Without questioning the value of Russian men — nor considering the immense Russian cultural, artistic and religious treasures and relics, what definitively impresses most visitors (obviously including me) during a trip to Russia are the Russian women.
Russian women impress more than Russian men. Yes, regardless of whether you are a man or a woman, in Russia for a long business trip, an expat, a tourist for just a few days, or if you are a student or a pensioner: what you’ll remember about your Russian experience are first of all its women, then comes the rest.
In fact, although Russian men are — like Russian women — warm in their nature, they generally tend not to take too much care about their appearance, which makes them less remarkable than women when you just look at them. This doesn’t mean they are not smart, educated, kind and sensitive to their women’s needs and desires. For example, compared with foreign men in this aspect, even in their own country they seem very closed and change-resistant – this is particularly true for the current middle-aged male generation. The younger generation definitively has greater access to international standards and trends, and perhaps also driven by a stronger curiosity they are learning how to care more about their appearance.
Should I specify right now that by talking about Russian women I’m not only referring to their indisputable beauty? Maybe I should: well, I’m not just directing my thoughts towards one of the most common international stereotypes (and a reality): the astonishing beauty of Russian women. But I cannot ignore it either. While the reality is evident going around the big cities such as Moscow or St. Petersburg as well as in rural villages, in winter or in summer, there is a second dimension surprisingly able to shadow the glamour of the Russian beauty.
This is probably the main reason why Russian women seem so interesting, attractive and memorable — their strong character which surely enables them to fight to “survive”, advance and succeed in the extremely competitive environment of today’s Russia without impacting their exquisite natural gentleness. They tend to have a high level of education as well as possess open-mindedness, intelligence and pragmatism, and this combined with their strong ethics at work, where they prove to be reliable and hardworking, can make them exemplary employees.
Their attributes include clarity in setting personal objectives and the consistency in achieving them, an ability to always guide and support their partners, in good times and in bad, and the proven ability to overcome any difficulties while still remaining feminine regardless of the socio-economic context in which they find themselves. Does it seem too much? It is not.
And we are back to the beauty of Russian women. In a convergence with their natural beauty, Russian women — it appears crystal clear — are nowadays extremely determined to affirm their femininity, to be and appear like women regardless of their income and personal situation.
Russian women seem to make something of a mission of valuing their femininity with a dress code, careful makeup, and high heels they apparently never abandon: in the office, visiting shopping centers, going around with their friends, walking with their kids, in supermarkets, in a park or at a museum, with no difference whether they are going to drive a car or take the underground, and even ignoring the sometimes challenging Russian weather or the road and sidewalk conditions.
Why, you might ask? Simply, Russian women desire to be beautiful and attractive. And they succeed because they know well how to do it without offending their intelligence, their dignity as a woman, and surely without merchandising their body. It has nothing to do with feminism in Russia. It is about culture, education and desire.
As a visitor, it is of paramount importance not to confuse a dress code, which sometimes might leave little to the imagination, with an invitation to approach a woman believing she might be somehow “easy”. You can instead easily avoid making a poor impression by just not thinking that whatever you see is obvious. The era of Russian women looking for foreigners to escape Russia and improve their living conditions is definitively over. The opposite might be true now.
Surely these are not unique differentiating factors of Russian women, but I believe this combination explains why many non-Russian men fall in love with Russian women although they might keep struggling forever with the cultural differences. But that’s definitively a different story.
What I believe is important to consider, when striving to understand today’s Russian women, is the historical context that has contributed to the conditions and common elements you can notice in their personality.
Simply learning the recent history of Russia has personally helped me a lot; along with progressively understanding and appreciating the positive aspects of my now years-long experience in the country, while also clarifying many of the more or less apparent and strong paradoxes and contradictions that characterize daily life in today’s Russia.
In fact, although the situation is gradually changing for the better with benefits spreading from the wealth Russia has been generating in the recent years, I’m pretty sure that together with the impression of Russian women what you’ll bring back from your Russian experience are the extremes you will notice simply going around the country, and — if you stay long enough — you may also come to struggle with. Anyhow, Russian citizens are fighting against them almost daily, and be sure they will progressively solve them; at least the most pressing ones.

russian-ballerina-1

I personally think that Russian and FSU Dancers are probably the best in the world. 

There are many state and professional dance studios in every city and Russian Culture treats this art form with the deepest respect. 

For example..

Take a look at the photo above to catch a glipse of the absolute perfect pose of this incredible ballerina. 

She looks like she is being suspended by invisible wires like they do in Cirque du Soleil.  And it’s pretty hard for me to imagine that she’s not so the only thing I can say like most others upon seeing this is..

“How do they do that!?!?”

Well luckily this timeless artform is about to get some international exposure with the latest release of a documentary film called “Ballerina”.

 

Ballerina spotlights the drive of Russian dancers

By R.M. CAMPBELL

Russian dancers have long been the subject of fascination, sometimes the men and sometimes the women. It would appear from “Ballerina,” a documentary about the Kirov Ballet, that women hold the upper edge today.

This film by Bertrand Normand takes a look at five women at the Kirov: two established stars, one hoping for a comeback after an injury, and two are young aspirants, bursting with talent and ambition.

    • Comment on Is Pregnancy a Tragedy for Modern American Women? by Richard July 16, 2010
      It would be very hard for me to look at the number of children available for adoption in Russia and buy fully into your statement that "A practice of giving a child away for adoption absolutely doesn’t exist in Russia" and "Russian women will be ashamed to do this". For people in NA to adopt internationally, Russia is one of the top […]
