If he's patriotic about Russia, then it will be in his personal interest? He'll be personally interested in being able to say, at the end of his career, "I did what I could for my Russian people"

That's how they are

Hey, I agree with you, I don't like all the aspects of their culture. Many here do not.

But, how do you tell him that, face to face?




In Rostov, these guys were 5% of the population in 1991, when USSR fell apart. Today, they are 1/3 of the population... Just for your information.
