I think Russians are pretty hospitable and friendly, but still there are things which you should be aware of. There are no strict rules on this or restrictions, but Russians hate when people speak loudly on the phone. There are Russians who speak loudly in public places but it usually attracts a lot of unwanted attention. Nobody wants to know what you talk about with your friends or relatives. Secondly, if you see drunk people fighting with each other — do not stare! It’s simply dangerous because they will probably want to fight with you as well and they won’t be afraid of consequences because there is no strict law which would stop them from punching you in the head too. I think it’s pretty much everything you should know before you travel to Russia. I’ve met many foreigners and I’ve never heard them complaining about serious difficulties in communication with Russians.

I think that in general Russians are pretty hospitable and friendly, but still there are things which you should be aware of. First of all, there are no strict rules for this or any restrictions, but Russians hate it when people speak loudly on the phone. There are Russians who speak loudly in public, too, but it usually attracts a lot of unwanted attention. Nobody wants to know what you are talking about with your friends or relatives. Secondly, if you see drunk people fighting with each other — do not stare at them! It’s simply dangerous because they would probably want to fight with you as well and they wouldn’t be afraid of the consequences because there is no strict law which would stop them from punching you in the head/face, too. I think it’s pretty much everything/all you should know before you travel to Russia. I’ve met many foreigners and never heard them complaining/complain about serious difficulties in communication with Russians.
Great job, Sofi!

Privet Sofi. Wow, you write really well. Just a tiny thing: "what you are talking about" - the continuous form for what you are doing in that moment. Well done!
