Rouble will work now. And I changed the Aeroflot clue, because I suppose you are correct. Although Aeroflot is no longer state-owned, it is still the de-facto national airline.

I consider the stereotypical name for a Russian man to be Vladimir. After all it is subjective. Also, I'm sure you could find something for Q, even if it's not great.

The question does not say Kruschev was Russian. But he did have a little job in Russia did he not? He is a part of Russian history.

Why are you obsessed with Trump?

level 77
Sep 28, 2019
I'm not. Why do you feel sometimes making comments about the leader of the most powerful country in the world; the most remarkably and openly corrupt, inept, and criminal in history; whose words and deeds have huge implications for everyone on a daily basis, including influencing the opinions of other posters like above, signals an obsession?

My guess is he voted for the guy, realizes what a terrible decision that was, doesn't want to publicly admit the mistake because it's embarrassing, and every time someone brings up the president this aggravates his sense of embarrassment.. so he urges people to just not talk about it and probably posts exasperated things on Facebook about how sick he is of the news.

Always surprising to see that the english transliteration of russian terms differs so much from the german ones. Also, I knew a kyrgyz guy who changed the spelling of his last name quite frequently on all social networks. Transliteration is just a funny thing.
