You have NO idea....I was on a boat full of them last year in Thailand. Coarse, rude, vulgar, insulting to the service people. I had never, ever seen anything like it. The Thai are so docile and polite. They would come along the beach to your cabana and try to sell purses, belts, etc. The Russians would go through everything they had, take an hour shuffling through their merchandise and then never buy anything. And then insult them.
So bad, so bad I can not even put into words.

When sunloungers are banned, only Russians will have sunloungers!
If the Russians keep it up, they’ll be regarded as even of lower class than the Obamaloon cabinet.

I was on a plane from Moscow to New York last year, when a theater troupe boarded. They were all quite tipsy by the time they got on the plane and even before the plane left the gate, they had taken all the toliet paper out of the toliets and pretty much alienated all the other passengers on the plane. The flight attendants had to talk to them multiple times during the flight to tone down their behavior. At the time, I compared their behavior to kids being out of Mom and Dad's watchful eyes for the first time. ....communism has lots of rules....but no civility.

Years ago we were on vacation in the Carrib. There were a bunch of German’s at the resort where we stayed. The resort staff organized “games” for guest entertainment. It was beach volleyball or pool volleyball or some made-up “resort olympic” event. It always divided out to be the Americans and Canadians against the Germans. For whatever reason this group of Germans were not particularly athletic but they were very hard on the staff. They argued every point and every detail of every event with the staff. In the end it was always the same; “It’s a TIE!!!” It became very funny, by the end of the week; it would always be a wholuppin’ that ended in a tie.

(The true measure of a man is found in what he would do if he knew no one would ever find out.)
One of the funniest things I ever saw in an airport happened in Helsinki. I was waiting at the baggage carousel for my luggage and next to me were some Russians waiting for their own luggage coming off a flight from Moscow. So I'm looking down the conveyor and here comes four regular galvanized garbage cans with the lids duct taped shut. The Russians start whooping and hollering as they grab their garbage cans and head for the bar.
* Took hotel sunloungers into their rooms to make sure they get a seat by the pool in the morning * Ate 'almost everything' at all-inclusive dinners - even taking doggie bags to stock up on grub * Flashed their money around and ordered hotel staff to be at their beck and call * Belched and swore in public areas such as hotel swimming pools and bars * Dressed like 'chavs' - wearing tracksuits and gold bling * Pushed into queues in bars and shops to be served first
Reminds me of a certain group of people. Hmmm... who exactly?
