It’s no secret that Russia and the United States have a rocky relationship. From the Cold War to communism — we really don’t get along. We compete in everything that we do: the Olympics, sending people/ probes to space, and even in the media.

As you saw in our previous post, From Russia With… WTF?! Volume I, there are some cultural differences that may lend to a misunderstanding between the two super powers. Here is volume II of this series. Hopefully this helps clear up some of the grey area, so that we may eventually learn to appreciate Russian culture.
