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.

Watch this incredible 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.

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.

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.

2 Awesome Ladies   

2 Awesome Ladies

I personally have much to be thankful for on this Thanksgiving Day.

First and foremost I am deeply thankful for all of you incredible visitors and participants out there who help to make Russian Women the Real Truth what it is.

Hopefully this site is a modest but meaningful beacon for those of you who wish to pursue your own dreams for finding love, happiness and a little truth in this often upside down world of ours. 

I not only wish all of you Good Fortune but I would also like to add one very important caveat to this wish.

You can literally make your own Luck.

My life here and the beautiful love I receive is a testament to this.

I know I live in a different world then what many of you are accustomed to. 

But this is only the case because like so many others..

I just decided to start walking towards it. 

Not only can you do the same..  But if there is a similar desire in your soul then you MUST do the same for yourself.  

I believe that this is a test that the Man upstairs gives all of us at some critical point in our lives. 

I know firsthand that this journey WILL be a successful one if you do it with an open heart and mind. 

This is not just warm and fuzzy fluff designed to make you feel good either.   

Its the real deal..

So on that note I’d like to share with you an important article that I hope all of you will take to heart.

Where I come from and the life I have now is living proof of its validity..

russian women katya-and-masha

Interesting. Very Very Interesting.

Imagine my astonishment to see an article about Russian Women in Forbes Magazine of all places.

I thoroughly enjoyed it but I felt that the author, Melik Kayan, had no choice but to protect his rear by writing it in a semi PC form.  

However inspite of his nebulous narrative.

I think his message and intent is QUITE obvious..  especially given that Forbes is primarily picked up by independent minded and successful Men.  

So sound off and let me know what you think the real meaning is behind his title… “The Natasha Syndrome”

The Natasha Syndrome

Melik Kayan, 11.24.08, 12:01 AM EST

A meditation on Russian women.

The current Bond film serves up the first authentically Russian Bond Girl for our delectation–the lustrous-limbed Olga Kurylenko. No doubt the producers felt that a Bond who looks and acts like Putin in so many ways–laconic, icy, not-quite-human votary of the martial cults–deserves at his side a genuine Russkie-ette, or should I say “Natasha.” That would be the more proper euphemism, especially as Ms. Kurylenko is Ukranski and not Russkie. (Please limit your outraged responses to three lines or less.)

Some 10 years ago, I was sent by a prominent American magazine to Moscow to explore the “Natasha Syndrome,” as it was then widely called. In the years after the Iron Curtain’s collapse, a nubile tide of female adventurers swept out of the former Soviet geosphere to seek their fortune in hard currency around the world by deploying their charms. Not Africa so much, but every other continent was inundated with them from Japan and China to Turkey, Saudi Arabia and Europe.

In Turkey, the natives called it the New Russian Revolution because it caused a social upheaval along Turkey’s Black Sea coast–a stony seat of unreconstructed male chauvinism and a mere boat-ride away from the Crimea. Suddenly, the men found it was raining blondes. A popular song on the subject blared from every taxi cassette player. “Oy Natasha, oy Natasha, oy oy oy” went the chorus. Local wives and daughters took to the streets in anger carrying placards saying “Natasha Go Home” and “Keep Your Legs Shut.”

It caused a palpable transformation in the steely, unyielding, temperament of the mustachioed menfolk of the area: They developed a new love of life, grew almost Californian in their mellowness. Rampant Russkiephilia had unmanned them en masse.

In-case you’ve been wondering where I’ve been lately..

2 weeks ago I finally decided to make the big switch by dumping Windows Vista and installing Ubuntu.

For those of you non-technogeeks out there..

Ubuntu is simply the Linux Operating System bundled with a very usable GUI and open source applications.

Now since I’m the kind of guy who needs to understand everything (or at least believe that he does) I dove head first into this mysterious subject.

Needless to say it’s been a whole new world that has really blown my mind and delivered an experience beyond my wildest imagination as to what a PC can do.

Not only is Ubuntu incredibly BEAUTIFUL to look at but its also STABLE as a rock and PERFORMS like there’s no tomorrow.

Simply put.. My PC was transformed into a completely different machine.

Sure the hardware’s the same but its obvious that the software is what makes all the difference here.

So I think its safe to say that I’m never going back to dear old Vista..

As I continued with this fun technical adventure a certain deja vu struck as I remembered what it was like to finally put my foot down and learn the REAL TRUTH about Russian Women.

All the parallels were certainly there.

  • The initial anxiety of the unknown.
  • The steep learning curve.
  • The joy of discovering a hidden treasure.
  • And the deep reward of incorporating this discovery into my life.

I think the meta-physical scientist and writer Terence McKenna said it best.

“Culture is your Operating System.”

And whatever Operating System you’ve installed completely determines how you perceive and interact with the world.

So if you find yourself pondering about the meaning of life.

(and in particular about Real Women..)

Understand that for the most part the Western Women who surround you pretty much came pre-installed with “Vista”.

And these same ladies are strutting around thinking that their bloated and buggy GUI “shell” is the greatest thing out there.

But meanwhile in non-Vista land..

There seems to exist a whole different class of women who continue to run along just beautifully without crashing and having to reboot all the time..
