So Russians are cry babies because they don't like and make fun of outsiders? That's like diagnosing bullies as wimps because they keep beating up other children. Cry babies means a person, especially a child, who sheds tears frequently or readily, its not synonym for someone who acts like an aggressive jerk. if your'e going to use hyperbole, use it properly.Despite all the talk about toughness, Russians can also be very big ,, cry-babies ''. They love to talk constantly about ,, Russophobia '' that was always in the West throughout history as they say and love to put the blame of their misfortunes on others and that such bad situations occurred in country, solely because of foreign influences. Now views about Anglo-Saxon conspiracies and hate of Russia become more and more popular. There is even famous historian in Russia - Starikov, who in his books tries to prove tha many misfortunes of Russia occurred because of English or Americans. Also many Russians don't understand that there were some nations that had it worse than them throughout history.
Also, a lot of Russians are racist. Now, few would actually say racist things in your face on the street, but behind your back and amongst each other they surely like to call names, make fun of those people and badmouth them. Many Russians use word ,,Черножопые '' to describe black population.
More and more Russians now also use word ,, либераст '' or ,, гейропейцы '' to describe Europeans. Liberal + Pederast = Liberast and Gay + Europe = Gayropeans.
Majority of Russians won't change their attitude towards Crimea, Ukraine and Europe, even if Putin and his friends die next morning. Don't be naïve about that. It's not evil Putin who brainwashed poor Russians. Majority of them legitimately approve his foreign policies and some even want more.
