Russia in the Eyes of Foreigners – A Compilation

From YouTube:

Russia through the eyes of the Americans, Funny clips from Russia on YouTube

A compilation of video clips chosen by Americans from Russian video sources. An overall view of what an American finds funny, cool, and interesting about Russia.

You’ve probably never thought about how our wonderful country looks to Americans, Brits, the Dutch, the French, the Danes, and all the other foreigners? What they think is funny, cool, and what they find interesting and unusual. Or maybe the yanks just like watching us. That’s a pretty complex question… particularly when you bear in mind that this video clip was put together by an American.

Yeah. If someone doesn’t like it, then we’ve got to think about it. Because all of this is normal for us. Well, it’s not a shock, anyway. Grrr, idiots.


There were several videos from Ukraine.
