Firstly, Russia isn’t in the EU, and secondly Western Europe is full of Russians who are getting the fuck out of Russia as fast as they can.
You obviously don’t notice them by skin color, but you can tell by their clothing, haircuts, and general behavior, especially the way some of them squat around like they’re crapping in an Asian toilet while they’re selling drugs in parks. Ok, ok, not all of them, of course not, but the number of extremely violent Russian drug dealers, pimps, and other bad guys is pretty high. Of course there are also the students and normal nice people. For many, Russia isn’t at the end of their personal Yellow Brick Road. When I asked a young Russian business student I know in Berlin if and when she was going back to Russia, she just looked at me and said: “back to Russia? fuck, I’m not stupid.”
