    Russians have сушка and бублики -- why bother with pretzels?
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    Never heard of this one and it doesn't look like a pretzel either. Or maybe I am just being too restrictive and the pretzel does not have to be tiny, dry and salty...

    Those silly comments about Russia using it's gas and oil to influence politics is just a bunch of American/Ukrainian propaganda. Ukraine has been getting their energy resourses from Russia at a super discount ever since they were part of the Soviet Union. Now Russia is a capitalist country and can no longer subsidize it's former union members. When Russia said that Ukraine will now be charged market prices they refused and Russia did the same thing any American gas company does when a customer doesn't pay their bill (turn off the gas!). Ukraine cried "discrimination" to every foreign press service that would listen and started stealing gas from Russia's pipeline.
    As for the stupid propaganda that Russia blew up it's own gasline in the remote mountains during the worst freeze in history just to punish Georgia, well figure it out for yourself. By the way, Russia immediately sent out repair teams that risked their lives to fix those pipes and save Georgians from freezing to death. Gas was flowing again in less than a week.
    Toto, I've a feeling we're not in Kansas anymore.

    Yeah, they look th same, but taste very much different! Pretzels are salty while Russian крендели are sweet. Pretzels IMHO are in fact from Jewish cuisine...

    Well, Lingvo translates Крендель as a pretzel or "knot-shaped biscuit." Knot-shaped biscuit just rolls off the tongue so smoothly...

    So you decided to respond to that with your even more silly Russian propaganda?
    ...Well that is just what should have been expected in a thread which started like this one.

    Hey those are my silly comments! I was half joking writing them, of course.

    But I do see an inherent flaw in your argument: " Now Russia is a capitalist country and can no longer subsidize it's former union members. ". Helllooooooo, isn't it exactly that what it is doing to Belarus for example? If they want to be a capitalist and fair country, make everybody pay the same price. Don't just suddenly decide to increase your price when you have a contract that sets the price until 2009 If you think there were no political motivation whatsoever, then I think you are a victim of Russian propoganda (no offense) I do agree with you on the Georgian thing though, Russia might have stupid leaders, but they can't be that stupid. Probably those Chechen terrorists who have even said they would target the Russian economy.

    Umm... Sorry... for turning political... I just love it

    Крендельки (кренделёк is a diminutive from крендель) is a common name for pretzels. They can be salty, sweet and there are other flavours too.
    As for Bush I would like him to quit his current job and become a stand-up comedian.

    Really? I've never seen salty ones... Can they be dry like pretzels or bubliki? The ones in the picture look soft, and that is how I always thought about them too.

    Yes. They are pretzels exactly - small and dry, it's not a problem to buy them in Moscow now.
    Edit: Look here for example http://www.onega.by/assortment/krendelki/apple/

    OK I stand corrected... Apparently the things I ate some time ago were something else then

    I agree.
    Russian propoganda: Крендельки -- самая вкусная еда в мнре!
    American propoganda: Pretzels are the most delicious food in the world!
    Personally, though, I'd have to say that Martian snacks are the best...
