I'm not! since the April, but even then I wasn't too close to them. So my life is more or less ok, and in the cities that are far from the frontlines it's almost the same as it used to be, on the surface. Only there's a curfew, occasional checkpoints, Czech hedgehogs sometimes somewhere in the streets, people walking around discussing the news and political matters which is still a bit bizarre to me (I mean that everyone is basically on the same wavelength and it's easy to relate to a rando), and air raid alerts ofc (that don't necessarrily mean missile or drone attack but occasionally we get those too). We'd get power outages for a few months since October but it's been a month since the last one if I'm not mistaken, and it's not dark in the streets anymore (the street lights weren't working at full force or not at all in some places, so people were walking with flashlights). Idk it might sound shallow but that's how life is where it's safe and comfortable, and it's pretty calm for now as opposed to aforementioned October and following months with those massive air attacks.

Also there's this new subculture of teenage weebs that look like picrel and meet up at the malls to have mass brawls with football hooligans, gopniks, and migrants from Caucasus and it's a big deal in Ukraine and Russia now. They call themselves PMC Ryodan, and initially, allegedly, such a group of teens was seen beating up some gopnick bullies that harassed them in the mall in Moscow. In Ukraine specifically, they claim that PMC Ryodan is a project of FSB and is basically Russian PSYOP. They're being hunted down by police in both countries. I honestly kekked at the way they described them in the news: "teens with long hair that wear black loose-fitting clothes" - so basically every second zoomer is a "ryodan"? Must be tough to be a slightly alt teen nowadays

It was funny when they instantly started explaining what is anime to me, just assuming I'm too old to know lol

Thanks nonna! It's interesting to learn about local subcultures. Dizelaši seem similar to gopniks. Listening to turbo folk rn haha

Kek I guess so

Well, none of my relatives between 18 and 60 were mobilized, and I haven't heard about such cases among my acquaintances, except for those who went by their own will either in territorial defense or army (not everyone was accepted tho). Judging from your friend's age, he's still in high school/college, is he going to enroll at a university? As far as I know, full-time students aren't mobilized.

That's a Russian brand that makes author clothing "with national-patriotic, monarchical, and church-orthodox symbols", and it's advertisement for their socks and t-shirts too I guess. I've seen something similar months before and it's been mentioned in the comments - their previous/older line of clothes was named Je Suis Donbass, and many people were bewildered by commercial photoshoot back then, too. They like to shoot children in mini shorts for some reason, people find it pedophilic and weird, I think that was the author's implication as well, nothing specific.

Idk anon, you probably mean there's no trans hysteria or something, and while I agree that it's good and hope there won't be anything like that in the future, sadly, it goes hand in hand with a general lack of progressivism which is a result of lower quality of life: there're always other issues to deal with. People don't go crazy with human rights activism and wokeness because overall situation with human rights is worse compared to West.
Regarding idealization, so far, I've only seen western scrotes and alt-rights that praise Eastern Europe for all the wrong reasons, and it's mostly based on stereotypes and generalizations anyway, plus, they tend to lump EE countries together, so, I suspect, they basically refer to Russia, its anti-western rhetoric and laws regarding "gay agenda" and domestic violence, which fucking suck, or think that its conservatard/domostroy freaks, like Sterlingov and Dugin, represent common sentiments among the population.
I don't really see what's so trad about EE countries. I'm too lazy to look into statistics, but I doubt that there're much less divorces or single-mother households in EE, so it's hardly the last bulwark of family values as some people think. In Russia, they even joke that there're already lots of same-sex "couples" with children, implying there're lots of single/divorced mothers that raise children with the help of grandma. It's not that different in Ukraine, as far as I can judge. Pretty sure there're also highest numbers of children that end up in orphanages (in Europe) and more child abuse in general.
Wouldn't say that people are much more religious here, too. In Ukraine, I feel like only western part has more religious people, both orthodox and catholic, which doesn't necessarrily mean they're raging retrogrades tho.
People are more sexist on average for sure, more lookist toward women, more homophobic, but I feel like there's been a gradual shift in views towards more progressive ones in recent years, even among older generations. Still, people in general are very different but I'd say only a minority has truly traditional views, and I've never actually seen a "trad" family or a woman that strives for such life. Yeah, there're pick-mes just like anywhere else, there're women that put up with various shenanigans and abuse from men because of poverty, low self-esteem and poor boundaries, there're women that do most cooking and cleaning on top of working full-time - not because they enjoy it, but because they were tricked into believing that their husbands/bfs are inept and helpless. Still, they're just regular women, not tradwives from someone's wet dreams.

We have our own flavor of wokeness here in Ukraine though, hehe, people criticize and condemn Russian culture now (which I can understand, ok) and many Russian-speaking ones fully switch to Ukrainian, which is also ok, but it makes some of them haughty af. At least that's what I see on the internet. Some of them feel morally superior to Russian-speaking Ukrainians and ascribe ridiculous beliefs and opinions to them, basically stating that they're pro-Russian. Such attitude, strong desire to lecture others and virtue signalling reminds me of twitter woke culture. I don't really talk to people irl and I just hope it's not that popular among "thinking youth".

Damn nonnie, I'm sorry. It's hard for me to say how normal it is though, but yeah, it happens. I'd get catcalled and grabbed much more when I was a teen, it doesn't happen that often anymore but some men love to violate physical boundaries by making "gentleman gestures" (and react like idiots when you try to avoid it) and think it's really important for you to know what they think about your looks. I don't usually hear anything vulgar but it's all just really uncalled-for. From what I heard, our teen scrotes can be pretty handsy (although I don't remember anything like that in my high school, thank god).

Russia is Europe but uncanny valley, liminal space Europe. For sure it is not an Asian culture, nor does it have a a defined cultural/civilizational identity of its own (neither Asian nor European), like Kavkaz or Turkey. Anything in Russian history and culture that predates the USSR is European in nature. Civilizationally speaking it is a European culture whether it wants it or not.

No. 1519953

I wish more Slavs realised that the only way for us to be prosperous and treated with respect is to align with each other. Our cultures are almost identical, our languages are basically dialects of proto-Slavic. Ukrainians are fucking retards for resisting "annexation" and trying to align themselves with the EU. EU will never recognize them as equals, westoids will never respect them. All Slavs are essentially Russians. Russia is the purest Slavic country, Russia is the mother of all Slavs and Pan-Slavism is the only way forward. We need a Pan-Slavic union, not the EU or any other shit. America is not our friend, neither is Germany and the EU. Russia is the only country we should be aligning ourselves with.(khorosho, gandon! racebaiting)

We maybe speak the same but we all want something different in life, that's why we made so many different countries… and it's okay.

Same, but with Ukraine lol. So many people found out about my country after 24.02 and now anyone need to give their shit takes about EE politics. I know a lot of very good people who help my country, which I'm infinitely grateful for, but there are also a lot of guys who treat the whole war as if it's some TV show where you pick one side and fan over it (NAFO and Western Ztards alike). Like, calm down, dude, it's not Star Wars, people are actually dying here.
Next time just pepper spray him or kick him in the balls. He would be too much of a pussy to tell the police he was beaten by a woman. On other hand, I have a story to tell about how I was creeper on by some nasty dude. So, I was walking by the hospital, but found some dude sitting near by with his head in his hands, just squatting on the ground. I thought it was weird and asked him if he was okay. He told me he was hit and now felt terrible and wanted to get to the hospital and he was lost. I told him I can walk him there and talk to the doctors. All was fine, I let him lean on my shoulder and we went there, talk to the doctors, but at the last minute he starts acting normal, as if nothing happened at all, and says he doesn't doctor's help. I was like, uh, okay, whatever, I'm going home. I went out quickly and noticed he is following me. I tried to walk even quicker and he was following me still. Eventually I stopped and ask what the hell was his problem, so he started very persistently asking for my number. So I run away from him through an unknown neighborhood until he lost me.
Phew, that was one annoying scrote. And he faked a head injury to stalk me.

My brother was from Mariupol and he told me a lot of horror stories about this place, but he has a "bronya" from his work place, so he is safe. My uncle, who is an orthopedic surgeon, got into military as a surgeon, cause he really wanted to get experience dealing with that sort of injuries which is actually very valued.

I actually was a Kiwi Farms regular before, but the atmosphere there started to turn me off.

Next couple of years another party wins, destroys the stuff the first party did and sets up completley different goals. We never get anywhere really, there is no focus.

If not, they probably work for some foreign company or at least have a lot of money to travel abroad regularly. At the very least, they are usually some hard-core NEETs who spend all their free time on western websites like tumblr and learnt all that stuff to blend in, forgetting their local culture on the way.

Last time I visited, I literally had a woman on a train vent to me for an hour straight about how bad it is there, the moment she heard I live abroad. They should just be dropped off in India or Zimbabwe and see how much of a "shithole" their country is then. They are so sheltered and idealistic when it comes to their view of other countries that it is embarrassing and the reason why their situation at home will never improve.

I ment from the EU countries kek I'm sure there are worse countries. Here the corruption is very bad, it's in every government branch and they steal as much as they can. The place is beautiful ofc but it's telling that for years the biggest foreign investments in the country were money from Bulgarians living abroad, sending them to their families. Everyone has someone from their families living abroad. Here you could make somr business, make it work, make it profitable and then the mafia will come and tell you this is our business now and if you don't want to sell it on loss to them, they will start sending you and your family threats or they will light it up on fire. Mafia, prosecution and the government are very intertwined. Here the labour is very cheap, the taxes for corporations too and yet almost no big company wants to come here - there is a reason.
Though, i do have a lot of rights, compared to women in other places, i work monday to friday, i almost don't spend money on anything else than necessities, haven't been on vacation since 2014, my salary isn't the lowest, but isn't the highest either and I can't even buy a parking spot in the neighborhood i work in and that isn't even the most expensive neighborhood.
For reference, yearly i make around 6600 euro, after the taxes, the parking spot is 25 000 euro, not to mention if i wanted to buy an apartment, ofc they are more expensive. And I'm 30 almost

Where are u from anon?
Bulgarian lev is 1.97 for 1 euro, so i roughly calculated that, i get 1100 leva montly (after taxes) and once i again i should say I'm not even considered poor by our standarts, but as i already have said, that money goes mostly for utilities/food and that kind of stuff. I hate shopping anyways, so i shop only like when I'm in a desperate need of something, i buy clothes very rarely, lol my first cousins live in the us and i actually wear a lot of my female cousin's leftovers (in the sense that her mom buys her a lot of stuff and sometimes i get the ones she didn't like) and stuff like that. I'm very happy and lucky that i live in an apartment owned by a family member, so I don't have to pay to a landlord and such. Don't get me wrong, i have money for the necessities, i eat, pay the bills and have roof over my head but i definitely understand why people go abroad - as i mentioned i have family in the us, by the us standard they are probably around lower to middle working class (something like me here) and yet their ability to buy/do stuff is way bigger than mine, if that makes sense. I understand why that many people leave and i too understand why foreigners think people here i overreacting - it's very nice if you come here on a vacation, it's a beautiful country, seaside, mountains and a lot of other beautiful sights, relatively safe country too, cheap for foreigners, nice for a few days, but when you are born here it is a different story. I have talked with a lot of bulgarians living abroad and they always express they want to come back living here, but it's not viable to come back and keep living the same lifestyle as they are used to living abroad.
Not to mention the inflation rising and the fact that my salary isn't rising, like at all.
I get the sentiment that this isn't the worst situation, i can admit that, but also i have to restrict myself from buying anything just so i don't fuck my budget

Never seen a westerner take any kind of interest in eastern europe or know enough about us to stereotype EE women.
Western zoomers and millennials especially have no knowledge whatsoever about eastern europe, nor are they curious to learn. They're obsessed with east asia though as asian elements are a huge part of zoomer and millennial culture. Where the hell do you all meet those western "slavaboos", most westerners can't even name a single eastern euro country

very true about the incel rhetoric eastern euro men are adopting and it's annoying as fuck. They all worship andrew tate like he's the second coming of christ even though andrew tate is a westerner that talks about things that have nothing to do with us KEK. Not only dad but Tate came to eastern europe to exploit it and these cucked romanian boys worship him while he prostitutes their girlfriends/sisters

I'd say eastern european women have it the worst when it comes to men: they're the most unattractive, it's considered "gay" to take care of yourself as a man, theyre not pretty to begin with but they also let themselves go and go bald and fat, they're extremely entitled, they're incel-minded, misogynistic as fuck, embrace western douchebag ideologies like andrew tate, just all around awful.

I'm from Finland so from the wealthy end of EU. I make around 2100 euros a month which is above the minimum but still not a huge amount as your average one-bedroom apartment in Helsinki costs approx. 800-1000 a month and most people living alone will have to spend at least 250 euros on food, nowadays maybe more with the prices rising. I'm living in a student condo with a roommate and thus am able to save more money, but I know for a fact that even most students these days want to rent a solo apartment.

Sorry for being a tourist in this thread, though geographically speaking Finland is way more in the East than most countries considered East Euro, I guess we're not really viewed as part of EE by others, either. Finns are super sensitive about this due to being the biggest ass lickers of the CCCP while also being a democracy back during the Cold War, so if you really want to upset Finns you just have to refer to Finland as Eastern European kek.

Calling transsexuals of any kind by their birth gender is a new western culture wars phenomenon which I want no part in (the culture wars that is).
This for instance, is Kleopatra, "the Balkan Prophet". She is a mtf who had a popular divination show back in the 80s and 90s before those were banned.
People called her a freak, a quack, a weirdo, but no-one ever called her a "he".

No. 1528184

Not Russian, and not that familiar with holywarsoo specifically, but I'm not a fan of russian-language spaces in general, I mean even predominantly female and/or feminist, including radfem. Such communities often have their own local freaks, extra unhinged ones, and the atmosphere in these places makes me feel ill quite quickly. I think partially it can be due to the language, foreign language might actually work as a barrier that make everything more neutral, whereas you're much more sensitive to your first one… but I also never felt comfy in those places. Like they're more aggressive or something. I haven't been to libfem or any fem spaces since ~2016 but I remember them as extremely restricting, god forbid you say a word from the War-and-Peace-long list of offensive terms which include something like "idiot". As for handmaidens, unfortunately, it seems like Russian/Ukrainian/Belorussian women tend to be more sympathetic towards men, even GNC women and lesbians, which has always been so frustrating to me. And I'm not even that radical.

No. 1528200

I'm Ukrainian and stopped frequenting Russian websites around 2014-2016, but from what I remember VK feminist spaces were… something else. You had absolutely crazy libfems and queers who tried to introduce gender-neutral language conventions which were broken as fuck and didn't work at all because Russian is a highly gendered language, so what they did looked like a freak show (does anyone remember this public group called something like "equal" or something like that? They used those stupid мозгодрочи_ла_есса or something. Shit is wild). They were usually the butt of a joke and had very small user base but also attracted a huge hatedom and hate groups were way larger than SJW groups.
Radfems were pretty boring. Very small groups who mostly posted boring academia stuff and the traffic was very low. You would be very lucky if you can have a small chat in the comments. Lots of polilez types and a lot of women tried to adopt dyke look, which felt as forced and try-hard.
Of course, some larger groups existed and they leaned towards radfem. The one I remember was called "men are nor needed" (МНН, if I remember it right). It was pretty based and the admin knew how to get traction on the internet, so it was both informative and funny (lots of memes, actually funny memes), good community and so on.
But yeah, it was pretty shit all things considered. A lot of really crazy people, outright repulsive women and "no fun allowed" types.
The incel rhetoric also became popular during this time. Some sort of cargo cult around western alt-right too. So a lot of feminist spaces went to shit quickly cause they were raided by haters. Groups that had poor moderation went to shit very quickly or became "no fun allowed" heavily moderated types. It all looked very bleak.

Alot of them aren't even doing that anymore. The ageism towards old people there is insane. The hospitals are rundown shitholes where they literally just send them to die. I was sent to one when I was 12 for a kidney issue and I couldn't stop crying to go back home. The nurses were all really fucking rude and did not give a fuck. I think the attitude and rudeness of the people are a much bigger problem than the corruption imo. Maybe my family and I have gotten desensitized from being abroad, but every time we go back everyone seems ruder and ruder. I had literally every woman anywhere I went look me up and down judgingly, multiple rude encounters with store owners (i.e. дръвчане) and other people in public. American fake politness is cringe af but at least you don't have to deal with people wanting to make a scene in public everywhere for no reason other than that they're miserable. It's Karens and Steves, but if you made a whole country out of them. kek

>Though, i do have a lot of rights, compared to women in other places

Yes you do, so don't take that for granted. You can literally take a coffee break at a nice cafe with great scenery compared to a woman in corporate America that can only drink shitty company-brand coffee in a shitty office that she is not allowed to leave for. Don't take that for granted nona.

OMG YES, I've thought about it just before I started typing and forgot to mention this insanity with "inclusive" endings. It was Equality, but I remember the same thing in "check your privilege" and a couple of other similar groups. Equality was probably the worst because it was egalitarian, not specifically feminist, so there were active male members and troons too.
Oh yeah, I remember it too, it was all right. I previously remembered only some radfem groups that were weirdly misogynistic but I can't recall the names. I also remember reading somewhere that some of such groups appeared to be full of vata after the war started, while some of the more popular feminists (that would write in Wonderzine or some shit) seem to be more preoccupied by Ukrainians and the rest of the world being too russophobic and Russians donating to our army (because even though war is wrong and yadda-yadda it's apparently immoral to wish us victory since it means more russian soldiers will die. immaculate logic). Can't say I'm disenchanted (wasn't enchanted in the first place) but still it's pretty ironic and bleak.

>how do you feel about the war
I was a child when Crimea happened and I remember I used to worry about it spilling over nonetheless, if only I knew.. A few months back I saw a car with ukrainian plates and bullet holes in the back. A side of my family is from Ukraine, (which is the case for lots of us) and we still haven’t heard from them since last year. I worry if Russia invades us as well there will be no way out, Moldova is not Ukraine after all, from the border to the capital it’s 3 hours by car. I still check the news daily, very stressed. (sorry for cringey ramble)
>how are things in Moldova?
A few people I know fleed to Romania & europe in general since the start of the war, but that’s for those who can afford it. Nothing much in the sense of military escalation, just bomb threats, russian backed payed protests and the 30% inflation. With 200MDL you used to walk out the grocery store with a full bag, now it’s just 3 or 4 things, which doesn’t sound bad bad but bills are horrible atm even with state compensation.

it's not Budapest but Szentendre is like 45 minutes away by train or tram and the Old Town and Riverside parts are really beautiful. Esztergom and Visegrád are also great but they're farther away and Szentendre is better imo

for food i don't really have places to rec, Kürtőskalács/Chimney Cake is nice if it's freshly baked, in a restaurant i would recommend pörkölt (pork or beef stew) and halászlé (fish soup, really great) over goulash/gulyás cause gulyás is really just a mid tier soup

avoid: Váci utca (really crowded and annoying, massive tourist trap), parts of the city that are very run down and aren't safe, not validating your ticket on public transit bc i've seen inspectors single out tourists specifically, leaving your stuff unattended bc people steal all the time

I just want to second other anon's Gellert Hill recommendation! I loved the hike and the view is 100% worth it

Danube is still so narrow in Budapest, as someone whose city is also on the Danube I loved crossing the bridges and noting how short the bridges are there. Hard to believe it's the same powerful river. I stood on a bridge and spat in the water, thinking how my spit will make it home before me.
