    Re: What do you think about Poland.

    2.What do you think about people from Poland.-There are strong anti-Russian opinions in Poland right now as far as I know...-This is fact,Poles remember 123 years of tsar's Polish,Polish-Bolshevik war,agression in 17 of september 1939,murderes in Katyn and 45 years of socialism.In Russia, i want see a friend and I will see a friend.
    Well, Polish intervention to Russia occured earlier than that (it was in 1609) If we hold grudges for everything one nation did to another we would end up in a total feud. Personally, I don't feel myself responsible for any of the things you mentioned and I don't think that today's Poles are responsible for something that took place 400 years ago.
    Politicians are being what they are and they instill national hatreds in their subjects. Well, I don't listen to the politicians and advise everyone against it. After all, my personal opinion is that all politicians in all countries must be hanged. Let them froth at their mouths but I will judge myself who is good and who is bad. And man's nationality is the last thing I look at when I do my judgement.
    Send me a PM if you need me.

    Re: What do you think about Poland.

    1.What do you think about Poland ?? :{culture,cities,army}
    => I've only been to Poland once. My impression - similar to Russia, but much more relaxed.

    2.What do you think about people from Poland for example:
    => Other nations in general find very little difference between Polish and Russians. Both are Eastern European. Their accent in English and mentality are very similar.

    3*.What do you think about Polish policy towards Russia ??
    => A great deal of fear.

    4.What do you think about Polish foods ??
    => Perogies are good, but I prefer the Russian version.

    5.Do you know someone from Poland ?? What do you think about him/her ??
    => I have acquaintances from Poland. The lady speaks Russian fluently, her son doesn't know a word. Culture-wise, I adore Stanislaw Lem. He was just Great.

    6. What do you think/know about Polish history {is positive or not?} ??
    => What is a positive or a negative history?

    7*.What do you think about murders in Katyn {true or false and opinion} ??
    => A strange question. What do you want me to think about murders?

    8.Do you know sayings or anecdotes about Poles/Poland ?? If yes-Quote few
    => Nope. Racist jokes are not my forte.

    I know a little. Unfortunately, I don't have time for studying Polish at the moment.
    In Russian, all nationalities and their corresponding languages start with a lower-case letter.

Besides, we both (Poland and Russia, that is) have our history of the not entirely nice things we did to each other, and if we ever want to regain (although, I'm not particularly sure about the "re-" part ) good relationships we ought to let some of it go, seriously. Sadly, that's not gonna happen until the twin brothers get a grip on themselves and decide to leave politics once and for all. (if only!)

    And Michał, your questions are somewhat tendencious.

    Re: What do you think about Poland.

    I totally agree with every single word that Kamka said!
    Including the comments about Germany.

    All of us in the Europe should think of what unites us instead of dwelling on misdeeds of our ancestors.. (which the present generation is not responisble for, and are well aware of...)
    Like Ramil said, all countries have done bad things in the past. As long as there is no sign that the countries plan to repeat what they did, we should look at the future and not dwell on the past.

    I also think that Europe (EU) should make just as much of an effort to get along with Russia as we do with the US. Perhaps even more, since Russia is closer.

    Haha, yeah you took Finland and the Baltic States !

    (but who needs them, lol!!!)

    =================================================
    Another thing about about Poland - I know a joke and it went something like this:
    A Russian and a German were stranded on an unhabited island with nothing but vodka and a broken typewriter.... While they were *very* drunk and waiting to get rescued they started a project, using the broken typewriter, to pass the time:
    They invented the Polish language!!
    (This is funny for people in Scandinavia because of how the Polish language sounds / looks... We can't even pronounce the name of the place that the ferries from Sweden go to (can't remember the Polish name) so we call it Swinemünde like the Germans did - just because the name is impossible to pronounce, like many other Polish names...)

    Re: What do you think about Poland.

    Here is one anecdote I found in Internet:

    2nd half of 20th century. A Jew comes to the Polish bank.
    - I want to make an account and put there 10 zloty.
    - You are welcome.
    - But first please answer, how can I get my money back if something wrong happens to your bank?
    - Go to our head office in Warsaw.
    - OK. but what if your head office is destroyed?
    - Polish Central Bank will compensate you.
    - And if Polish Central Bank is bankrupted?
    - According to the Warsaw Pact the Central Bank of USSR will compensate you.
    - And if USSR Central Bank is also bankrupted?
    - Hey! Are you jealous of 10 zloty for such a miraculous event???
    nulle likes this.
    "Россия для русских" - это неправильно. Остальные-то чем лучше?

    "What is a positive or a negative history?"-I want your opinion about Polish historry.
    => I'm sorry, I'm not sure what is opinion about history. Perhaps, you could explain by example. So, what's your opinion about the history of Burkina Faso?

    "What do you want me to think about murders?"-Maybe you support This murder.I wont to know your opinion about Katyn
    => I can't support any murder. Sorry about that.

    I don't like the Lech and Jarosław Kaczyński from PiS{Prawo i sprawiedliwość-Law and Justicy} and I agree with yours opinion about apologize from Germany,Russia and other nations.My questions are not tendencious- this is only my homework to English.I don't want apologize{It was many years ago}.Opinions are important.

    The man who invented Esperanto was from Poland!
    I think I understand why he got inspired to invent a new language!

    Re: What do you think about Poland.

    I don't know the Polish bit I have heard much about them from my friends who used to live in Poland for several years. They think that Polish nation is polite, hardworking and very nice. I would like to travel through Poland some day.

    The correct spelling is 'tendentious' not 'tendencious'.

    Hmm... I'll try... It is not so hard... But I should train:
    В Шчэбжэшыне хшёншч бжми в тшчине,
    и Шчебжэшын з тэго слыне же хжёнш бжми в тшчине

    http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/File:Chrzaszcz2.JPG

    But can you say the Georgian tongue-twister
    ბაყაყი წყალში ყიყინებს
    (baqaqi ts'qalshi qiqinebs,
    бакхкакхки цхалши кхкикхкинебс)
    which means 'The frog croaks in the water'
    (Żaba w wodzie rechocie. Лягушка в воде квакает) ?
