Great Russian Women
What do you know about Great Russian Women?
Women have played a huge role in the history of Russia, much greater than in the rest of the world.
Governance, politics and social life
In contrast to the rest of the world, women have made an invaluable contribution to the establishment, development and prosperity of Russia.
Iron hand in a velvet glove, they ruled the largest country in the world for many decades, achieving at the same time no less, and sometimes more successful than men, the rulers of Russia.
They excited the admiration and envy, love and hate in men, rulers of other countries as well as in their own country.
And it is women who Russia owes its greatness, and the very existence, despite incessant attempts by the so-called "enlightened" countries of the rest of the world to destroy it.

There are many beautiful women in different nations, but Russian beauty has its own peculiarities and distinctive features.
Since ancient times, many artists and poets admired the extraordinary beauty and intelligence of a Russian girl, and It's not just that she is very beautiful by nature.
Russian girls are able to downcast eyes like delinquent children, it seems they are about to cry, their eyes barely restrain turquoise tears that came out of the permafrost, centuries of grief.
Many ordinary Russian traditions evoke surprise and incomprehension of foreigners.
Russian women love to dress up. For example, a nice dress and high heels they consider appropriate attire for a simple stroll or even for ordinary trip to the store.
Russian girl is a flower, leaning over the weak men, they forgive them and twirl them as they wish.
True love feeling will evolve if you find the right partner. It's not easy and it takes a lot of time.
Joint travel can greatly help with this.
Almost everyone loves to travel, and the young, attractive girls, probably more than anyone else.
This is, perhaps, not only because they are the most receptive to everything new, beautiful and unknown,
not hamstrung by conventions and stereotypes, but also due to the fact that unlike others may travel not only to something see but also be seen.
