Ivan Kinsman : Rural Russia is very similar to rural Poland. Nice to see real country life in Russia. In my village we had 3 small shops but now two small supermarkets as these are now spreading into rural communities. We grow our own veg and pickle/freeze our own fruit and veg. Country people are so much nicer than city people - same everywhere!

Lockbar : I feel bad that the Russian people can buy Budweiser beer. They don't deserve that punishment.

Nika Boyce : My small town (less than 2,000 ppl) in Massachusetts USA has ONE shop and its mostly a liquor store... no awesome cheeses nor sausages etc. this place is nice, especially for just 88 ppl!

A Greavette : I live in northern Ontario Canada and the look and feel of this little place is exactly like my town.

Gerald N : I am happy to have found your channel. I grew up during the Cold War, and I was very scared that the USA and the USSR would get into WWIII. It's good that people see that people are basically the same all over the world.

wildbill9919 : That store looks small on the outside. And looks much bigger on the inside.

Chris Ursiny : in the usa this kind of shop is called a "convenience store" because it is convenient to stop here and buy goods rather than driving to the city and buying goods at the supermarket, the prices at a "convenience store" are higher than the supermarket.

Jim Fortune : 88 people? I live in a huge village in Poland. 135 people. Ha!

2xrpm : I found this by accident. I really love the tour of the countryside and the store. Thanks for posting

erdingtown : Russia has better roads than sonoma county, ca usa

Yash1one : Thats the place i want to live very few people living in peace no computers no internet . Great Life !

Ram S : To all Russians with love from an lndian in Indonesia. Simplicity at it's best. Natural life

Garry Gemmell : Same as my village in Slovakia we grow Plums , Potatoes, apples and we have chickens and are self sufficient in most things thats why i love eatern europe and Poland all the houses have those big metal fences around - apparently they are too keep the Cigany out - Cigany to je hrosni problemy na Slovenska!

Sean Nichols : Боже мой! Большое большое спасибо вам, для это видео! Я из Канадей, а прошлая года, я поехал в Россию в отпуске. Я туда был мезяцов три, и проехал по всей страно (с Владивостока, до границей Украйней). Я был часто в деревнах, а в маленьках городишах просто как этот, поэтому мне было нужен обычно купить продукты из так магазинах. А теперь когда я посмотрю ваше видео, я испытываю *очень* ностальгию. Это хорошо ощущение.))) Так ещё раз, спасибо!

A. G. : What I like about russian prices is that they just write rounded up numbers like 35/70/15/40... here in Germany we have prices like: 0,99/17,99/599 and you end up having a lot of 1Cent coins in your pocket. And if you want to buy something cheap and pay with all those smal coins, they reject your money, because they don't want to have all your 1,2 and 5 Cent coins. I once just emptied ma walet into a fountain to get rid of all the smal coins.

Michael Anthony : Again, and no surprise, the landscape is pretty much the same here in Canada.

Guy Tero : Loved your view video. I just love Russia. I wish I could speak Russian as fluently as you speak English.

Despacitoof : Hey there, I'm not expecting you to reply but I want to tell you this, I remember being on your channel since you had 2,100 subscribers, I just moved accounts, and you have really improved since them. I really enjoyed this video but I forgot about you when I moved cities. But I found your channel again and I love the content you post on it. You are the only channel I'll get where I can get an actual look into Russia and not some person saying Russia is crappy.

Warren Doud : Very interesting video; I enjoyed seeing sample of small town life.

celticboy1950 : I would love to visit Russia.

Triple D : Amazing collection of beers, for such a small shop!

Gavin Mcinally : If this is being poor in Russia. Beats America hands down.

Syed Nazim : I have been all over Europe except Russian federation. I wish I could make this trip possible one day.

Steven Thury : Thank you for the interesting video. From South Dakota in the U.S.

Augustus Caesar : I like this film, it's interesting for me and helps me to understand Russia. Small village of just 88 people , I'm used to small villages the village I live in in the UK has just 6 people, yes, 6. I think it's too big and wish it was just 4 people. I also wanted to say we don't have a shop and the nearest shop is 12 miles.

Ynysmitwr : A fascinating video, as ever! Valeriya, you might be interested to know that here in the UK a village with only 88 inhabitants would consider itself lucky to have even one shop these days. It's estimated that around 2,500 village shops have closed their doors here in the past decade. :(

Erick Diaz : This is truly wonderful short documentary. Being an American we live in a bubble and have no clue of remote regions of the Galaxy. Thank you 🙏🏼🤗

Paul Ferzoco : Looks a lot like our small villages here in America.

fumasterchu12 : That was a tiny village, reminds me of some I grew up around. That small grocery had a good amount of products though, impressive for the size.

Zaine Ridling : Мне нравится этот канал! Я так многому учу от вас, и я ценю всю работу, которую вы делаете для канала. Российский народ, с которым я встречался, всегда был очень милым и дружелюбным!

J Moss : Beautiful country. I've never seen a machine to pay for telephone or internet or other. Can you pay for heating gas or electricity from that machine?

jim52536 : Lord Christ bless your Russian people that seek to know You and Your Truth...

OXOX : When I was young in upstate New York State in the U.S. there were even smaller stores than this, with the shopkeeper living in a little house near the store. This was before convenience stores became a big thing.

Pralay Lahiry : I still remember the days when I used to buy beer, boiled eggs and salami which could easily be shared by two people in Vladivostok and Vanino for 20 Roubles.... times have changed. Greetings from India.

CrystalPharaoh : Thanks for the sharing. Interesting small store out in the Country. Similar to some places in the U.S. countryside. Especially in the South in Rural areas. Some things are universal for all humans such as "JUNK FOOD"

johny papa : Beautiful village. India loves russia❤

igorr soсkolov : Давно я не был в деревне.Оказывается в магазине очень даже нормальный выбор / как в небольшом городском магазинчике.Знаешь Лера - я с 1994 до 2000 года жил в деревне Грабово - это в 25 км от Пензы.В то время это была самая что ни на есть тертая / заскорузлая / немытая / деревянная деревня с одним универсамом и базарчиком в центре и несколькими магазинчиками чья разница от ларьков заключалась в том что в них можно было заходить внутрь. Я как сейчас помню весь ассортимент который можно перечислить по пальцам.Это водка / селедка / хлеб / консервы / макароны и растительное масло и все. За остальным надо было тащиться в универсам или ехать город.Поэтому в субботу в 5 утра и в 6 шел автобус в город на котором люди ехали специально за продуктами и товарами. Можно было уехать на электричке и рейсовых автобусах / но это попозже и за деньги а эти 2 автобуса возили рано и бесплатно.Как все изменилось с тех пор. Грабово сейчас большое село с коттеджами и особняками и 5 этажными домами. Извини меня что я сейчас окунулся в воспоминания и погрузился в те запахи и ощущения .Удачи тебе.Наверное совсем не по теме я сейчас раскомментировался тут. Прошу прощения.😋 🌼🤗

redman halfbreed : It's a very nice video, I like small villages the best in FSU, my wife is Belarusian so I have been to Belarus many times, but I would also love to visit Russia soon and go to these smaller places, not spending a lot of time in the bigger, crowded cities.
