At the same time, most Russians do not have what the West calls “good manners”. Their manners are not bad, they are simply Russian manners. Russia is a harsh continent and Russians usually do not hesitate to say things in a way that leaves no room for misunderstanding. During the Soviet period having Western-style “good manners” was considered to be reminiscent of the bourgeoisie (and don’t forget that the Soviet system was against everything bourgeois). Russians are very direct. When they see each other or call each other on the phone, they don’t waste time with questions like “How are you feeling?” and get straight to the point. It’s not that they are rude, it’s simply a way of doing things.
This doesn’t mean that they don’t keep their manners at social events or that they are rude. On the contrary, a Russian or in our case a Russian woman knows perfectly well how to keep manners in many different situations: a family or work meal, a cultural event etc. Russians are very well-mannered people. They will always address a third party formally and will not address him or her as a “tute tute” until a relationship of frank friendship is established. They have great respect for family and family rules. Russians are direct, frank and very respectful people.

The European Union closed the entire airspace of its 27 countries to Russian aircraft on Sunday, following a steady stream of airspace closure announcements by member countries over the weekend.
The zone was expanded from 100 to 200 nautical miles from the Ukrainian border with Russia. EASA argues that the expanded zone now considers the “risk posed by the threat of missile launches to and from Ukraine.”
“We have guests traveling in late March and early April to Poland, but that is more than a month away. It’s impossible to say now how it will evolve. We are basically in wait-and-see mode,” Kozlowski said by email.
Tourists with short-term plans to visit Poland are advised to book accommodation in advance, “as some of the hotel infrastructure may be earmarked for those in need.”
