Well, this is lovely. That being said, the biggest problem of modern Russia is none of what you just listed but the people like you. People like you, who instead of doing something creative, building or studying is sitting here and pouring dirt upon the rest of the nation.
Would I argue with a single point you just listed? No. But nothing induces more disgust than people like you. It's not that I care about Russia, but I do care about the good side of any kind of reality, whether you like it or not, and instead of smirking or sneering with an as**ole's attitude upon everything you might consider being worthy of your magic touch of despise I would consider reality as a project to develop into something well worthy of protection and respect.

However, the difference between quality of life in the large cities and in the country is much larger than in the States and Europe. The population is well-educated indeed, I won't argue with that, the education system is definitely not bad (I'm not talking about the level of overall ignorance which is as high as anywhere else on this damn planet -_-). But wait, infrastructure? You said good infrastructure? The mighty great empire of Russia is falling apart, if we talk about the infrastructure! Considering how much of the money the budget assigns for infrastructure construction and repairing is simply stolen on every level of the bureaucratic ladder, the situation just can't be good. Oh, and the roads, the never-ending problem of the prosperous and thriving Russian nation... we're building less and less of them every new year, and those which are constructed mostly require immediate repairing. The old roads, well, they aren't really roads, more like rollercoasters, except it's not fun to have a ride on them. What else did you mention? Science and technology? Bwahahah. C'mon, are you even serious? Most research institutes are poorly financed, and there's a constant brain drain from Russia (remember graphene, that one-atom-thin carbon material, well one of its inventors, a Russian dude, lives and works and Britain and earns a Nobel Prize for that). Speaking about technology: Fobos-Grunt, anyone? It finally crashed into the ocean a couple of days ago - congrats, it doesn't fly over our heads anymore as a symbol of national shame and degradation. Even the new military developments are only shown off at some expos and stuff instead of being launched into mass production! Sweet Jesus, the whole history of Russian science from 1940s onwards was based on military inventions, and now!.. well you got the idea. As a final touch, I can remind you that the "little addiction" to alcohol you also mentioned is actually of far greater scale - an average Russian consumes 18 litres of alcohol per annum. That's twice the norm IIRC. So please, don't say Russia is a well-developed and modern country which lives according to standarts comparable to Western ones - it's important for every person here to understand what a decaying country we live in and how much needs to be changed and be done in order to make Russia an adequate and functioning state.

Regards,
a loving citizen of the Russian Federation.

PS Sorry for the rant, it's just that I love dissing my country. Gets especially fun considering everything I say is true.

Ah, I just love doing this Dear Yaww, the biggest problem of Russia isn't people like me. The biggest problem is the people who still somehow consider Russia a country truly suitable for living. Russia is falling apart as I said, and every Russian should know that. If they don't want to acknoweldge that, then they sit on their couches and do nothing. Thus, everywhere and at any time, in the real life and the internet, I try to remind people of that. I get into arguments all the time, and I love it - party because it's simply fun.
I understand your point about how I shouldn't expose the bad side of the Russian reality because I have done nothing to change that. Dude. I would love to be able to change things, but I'm a 15-year-old schoolboy, I'm nearly powerless I'm not totally powerless though. All I can do now is to talk to people, to express my opinion, and I do think this is important because many of my friends and acquaintances just don't understand the way things are in our country - they simply don't care about that. I do. And I want others to do so. Because you know, it amazes me that with all the possibilities Russia had and has to become a modern and fastly developing country, this never started to happen. The reason is that people never cared much, and always let some crooks take the power in the country, and that lead to the horrible situation the country is in. I plan to study for a city planning specialist, this is pretty much the only profession that attracts me now. And I do hope that I will succeed in that and that I will have an opportunity to make Russia better myself, I really do.
It's always better to underestimate than to overestimate, don't forget about that. It's hard to underestimate in this case though. I can confess to you that I do not love Russia. But I do want to make it a country I can and will love. And I will try to do that when I will be able to. Until then, I "pour dirt" - not on the rest of the country as a whole, but only on the physical (well, mental too) condition it is in. Oh, and also on the government. Thanks.
