Dear Sirs! Thank you for your visit to our site. There's been a lot of discussion about girls from Russia on the Internet, and other media, within the past years. The result became a fancy and weird fusion of some valid information, some half-truth, rumors, dispute, guesswork, guesstimate and divination, misleadings and deliberate lies.
This is why we re-create from the scratch this site. We have a lot of firsthand information to share with you ;) We will try to tell you about who they are and who they are not; about famous russian women and their achievements in sports, business, art, literature, politics and history, and even wars; we will show you beautiful girls photos and we will tell you about "ordinary" ladies living out there with their views and customs, hobby activities, and Sense of Humor. We'll show you pictures of Russia - those places where Russian girls born, grow and live - or travel.
Please be advised that this is not "dating site" nor "dating personals site" nor "Russian mail order brides sites" in any way. This is not "date single person" nor "free dating online" nor "friendfinder" nor any other sort of "matrimonial" or "marriage" sites either. We don't offer any matchmaking services. We only offer information as we know it and show you some pictures. It's all free - no fees, no charges.
It is no use to distinguish Russian, Ukrainian and Belarus women as they themselves (most of them) do not feel a lot of difference from each other. Russians, Ukrainians and Belarusians have all very similar origins and social background, ways of life, traditions, and superstitions since they were the same country not so long ago (USSR aka SU, Soviet Union; later - CIS, "Commonwealth of Independent States").
It's these traditions and upbringing that make a Russian woman so different from European or American or any other country's one. Russian fairy tales are the huge part of these traditions. They depict a main protagonist (or heroine) not only to be a kind-hearted, hard-working and fascinating woman who is like Cinderella granted for her moral virtues with the prince and the fortune. The fairy tale heroine is a strong partner that supports and often saves the life of the prince.
Our fairy tales encourage patient, courageous, wise, inventive characters that show sacrificial love, lack of materialism, keep faith, have respect to the seniors, have compassion to the weak person and care for animals. Russian girl from fairy tales is loyal, wise, knowing, brave, compassionate, self-giving, shows unquestionable love. She possesses the secret bonds to nature and she's protected by Supreme Energy.
Russian classical literature and cinema has similar characters. A woman is described in novels as feminine, intelligent, sacrificing, yet strong and courageous heroine having heart of hearts, inborn integrity, justice and stamina. Woman of Russia is shown in Russian literature as vulnerable and submissive, but also flavored with stubbornness and irrational sometimes and able to show patience that permits ultimate survival in most harsh circumstances.
A unique character of Russian women is also influenced by the Orthodox Christian traditions and values like mercy, generosity, self-neglect. Even though a great many of Russian women are not true believers, they demonstrate the internal need for agape and charity molded by cultural background and the society.
Most Russian women take it for granted to combine their own career with taking care of family and the household. Most Russian clerks, teachers, doctors, accountants, as well as lawyers, designers, travel or real estate agents are educated women, working full day, yet they rarely hire baby sitters or housemaids to help around. If a couple gets a divorce and the family splits, it is almost always a Russian woman who takes full care of children. Russian women mainly cook at home, be it a regular supper, a quick lunch for a school child or a 2- meal snack for a husband leaving for work. Take away meals are not mass popular and expensive and premade food is considered low quality and unhealthy. Thus Russian cuisine and eating habits mainly include cooking at home and using fresh products.
This is quite habitual due to financial reasons and mentality when grown up children keep on living with their parents in the same apartment or house even after they get married and have own children. Most Russian women help raise their grandchildren and support new family of their own children financially.
Not only fairy tales, religion and literature characters inspire today's Russian women. To a greater extent it's life and heroic deeds of our great ancestors - real women that survived revolution, collectivization, industrialization, emigration, World War II and tough after war times and famine - to teach our compatriots what a Russian woman should be. We intend to write about these heroic women that were soldiers, partisans, pilots, snipers, nurses - those who contributed to the great victory of Soviet Union over the Nazis. Their unselfish courage and commitment to the Motherland played a historic role during the siege of Leningrad and Sevastopol, defense of Brest Fortress, battle of Smolensk and Moscow and other Russian hero-cities. One of Vermacht generals said that while preparing to the war against the USSR the fascists took into account all the details except Russian women. These words add to the portrait of a Russian woman and her historical mission.
At this "home" page we provide you with just a brief summary of our study; we'll elaborate it further at other pages: how to write letters to women of Russia or how to deal with Russians and much more.
The legendary pages of Russian history from the ancient times to the modern period present extraordinary characters of famous Russian women - rulers and political leaders. The "Enlightened despot" Catherine the Great is still a target of criticism and admiration, yet one of the most important leaders of the Russian Empire, whose achievements played a key role in political and cultural development of Russia.
Russian women - movie stars, musicians, Russian ballet dancers, athletes, female-politicians and writers greatly contributed to the list of achievements of their country. Many of them are world famous.
We don't aim to idealize a Russian woman though, thus we would be posting information about disturbing tendencies and dangerous practices a foreigner can come across looking for a Russian bride as well as notorious stereotypes about Russian women.
The major idea is that Russian women are not much different from all other women throughout the globe. They have the much similar concerns and tasks, fears and aspirations. They date, laugh, study, walk the career ladder, become mothers and take care of parents, like to get gifts, have hobbies, bring up children, have friends, travel, balance family budget, drive cars and use computers, dig at dachas, grow older, are affected by the stress and harmful habits and care about their health and beauty.We go beyond the topic and also offer the visitor information about politics, economics, opinion, living and useful information for visitors to Russia.
We hope that you could not only pick some cross-country knowledge here, like read about the Golden ring of Russian cities and Russian national emblems, natural and man-made wonders, but also entertain, laugh, amuse and admire the country's true treasure - the Russian women.
