    kak stolko (как столько) is not a phrase. May be you mean "как только..." = "as soon as...", where "..." refers to a clause in a complex sentence.

    as soon as possible = как можно быстрее
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    Re: kak stolko

    I (mis-)heard "kak stolko" in Erevan when I asked a clerk what time the museum closes.

    vo skolko muzei zakryvaetsya ?
    kak stolko. or kak tolko apparently.

    does it sound correct ?
    and I assume it means as soon as possible, right ?

    Как только, так сразу (и закроется).

    В шутку полагающееся после "как только" уточнение опускают, тем самым делая ответ либо бессмысленным, либо многозначным.

    А без шуток должно быть:
    Как только "условие", так сразу (и "действие").


    Как только начальник скажет, так сразу и закроем музей.
    Как только всех выгоним, так сразу.

    "так сразу" можно тоже опустить:
    Как только пробьет полночь.

    No, it does not.

    Maybe you missed part of the sentence.

    Or, otherwise, if it was "Как только." with no additions, then it was very caddish answer. Something like "It is not your f@#$ing bussiness".

    Most of the people in Yerevan don't speak very good Russian, in many places I found that they spoke English better than Russian. So it's quite possible that you heard the person right but they were just not speaking standard Russian.

    the person I was talking to was a lady working at the national museum. she was about 40 and I'm sure her russian was excellent. I even heard ladies there talking to each other in russian.
    but yes, younger people sometimes speak really bad russian, especially in Nagorno Karabakh I think.
