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.

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

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

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

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

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!

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.

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.

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

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

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!

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

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!

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

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

celticboy1950 : I would love to visit Russia.

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

Ben Shaprisun : 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.

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

Octodad : This village store is more advanced than many stores in other parts of the world. The quality of life is definitely better.

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.

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.

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

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. :(

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!

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

No name Brand : Just some info to pass to you but the store in this video, looks a lot like many small stores here in Michigan U.S. Just wanted to share. 😀

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

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 🙏🏼🤗

claudermiller : I live in a town with 1,000 people. Not much different than this. It's amazing how similar we are. Unfortunately the people who crave wealth and power try to convince us we have nothing in common. Makes it easier for them to plunder.

eottoe2001 : It is like Ohio.

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?

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.

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

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

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.

Pole Nit : Very nice to see small businesses make it 🇬🇧

Patti Zayas : very nice place.

Jayesh Shah : You are doing a very good job.I know Russia through History books only.It is really very interesting to see it.Keep doing a good work.

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.

Jacob Opper : I love Russia.

oviasif ovihasan : it would be very peaceful to leave there...

Oxxnarr D'flame : Great. Video, I alway like to see how regular people live.

Bradley Campbell : love your video and hello from America!
