You are acting like Western media always represented Russia properly. Russians are even famous for being regular bad guys in many Hollywood blockbuster movies.So on balance it is a good series about the USSR on which any amount of Russian fault-finding can be poured with surprisingly little issue. But nevertheless the fault-finding must continue, because God Forbid someone not-Russian managing to successfully represent Soviets? The sky will fall!
There are cultural things, that the series fails to pick up on. It's not an issue, but you can spot it.
I would also like to see the reaction of Americans, if somebody from the other country with their own actors made something similar on 9/11. Trust me, so many Americans would be nitpicking that show.
What ? Only blacks, asians and latinos have the right to criticize pieces of media on ,, not proper representation of their culture '' ? Just shows the level of schizophrenia in the modern West.
