    I also have fond memories of those times. I was a kid in the 80s. Best time of my life.
    Also good music!

    I was fairly young in the late stages of the Cold War, but I do remember my parents insisting I not tell my friends our family is of Russian descent for a class project on your background. (FYI, great grandparents were Russians from eastern Ukraine.) I was supposed to emphasize the Ukrainian aspect (as if that made a difference).

    Lol what. Because being 1/8th russian could possibly mean you are a communist sympathiser? I think only the USA could have such a thought.
    Infact it is still silly that people could think of a 1/8th russian as a real russian when they have no russian surname or even a vague interaction with russian culture.

    Generalizing and attacking the U.S. based on a decision his family made to keep his heritage secret, typical.

    After all, it is only the Americans that can be bigoted.

    The only war I remember is the Chechen war. I was too young...
    However, the 90s in Russia were still full of soviet movies and cartoons (besides the tsunami of western media). And kindergartens and schools were still serviced by soviet specialists.

    But I remember Elton John from those times too "Can you feel the love tonight" on MTV And he was playing black piano in that video.

    And still - do feel the Nostalgia too About the times where there were no me..
    A moment of Soviet Nostalgia (4 nostalgic videos):

    "Good Night, Little Ones", children's television program. Since 1964.


    "For those people who were born in 70-80s and in the beginning of 90s"


    Just photos of life


    Very atmospheric one
    "Want so much back to USSR"
    This and the previous one are my favorite.

    That and the fact they were a bunch of kids who picked on me a lot without a reason. I'd hate to have given them one.
