The dreaded Russian Man Kiss and Hug…

I have had a wonderful laugh at this video that features an ignorant Will Smith that reacted very badly to a normal thing in Russia or Ukraine. The dreaded Russian Man Kiss and Hug…

Will Smiths reaction to a Ukraine reporter is priceless and you can just see the delayed reaction to a normal Russian reaction. Now I feel that the reporter should have known better and he was wrong in trying the greeting that he did…

I have written before about this kind of stuff and my last post on it was when I had an argument with an off duty cop in Russia and when we were done he hugged me. A 300+ pound gorilla hugged me and thanked me…

That is normal in Russia and happens all the time, as well as guys kissing on the cheeks. If Will Smith had stopped long enough to not react he would have been kissed on both cheeks and all would have been good…

I will never forget the first time a Russian man hugged me and kissed me on the cheek. My brain went into defensive mode and I was like, “Hey, you not my daddy!” Of course I kept it inside as this was not my country and I had to learn what right and wrong was first before I would react and cause an issue…

Yes – Americans have a much much farther personal space around them than Russians and Ukrainians do. Will Smith should have known this, just like the reporter should have known the issue from the other side also…

Yes I had a wonderful laugh at this and finally had to say something about it, because it just does not die in the Western media…

That is why I love Russia…

XXOXOXOO 🙂
