I want to share my thoughts over some Slavic refugees. I belong to this culture and I feel responsible for how other nations see us.
I won’t be talking about the general mass of our people who actually suffer deprivation and are ready to do a lot to ensure themselves and their families a worthy existence abroad. I’m just sending them rays of support and goodness 🙌
But I’ll be talking about that specific category of people who unreasonably demand everything at once. And unfortunately I meet such people. And unfortunately, they are also involved in creating the image of the nation abroad.
Now let’s be more precisely. I’m talking about those people who, coming to another country and hiding behind military events in their own country, begin to get impudent.
They want high benefits, their own home, good treatment and !citizenship! as soon as they arrive.
But the same time they don’t want to learn a new language, to work, to pay taxes, to become a valuable and worthy resident of a new country.
And they’re often pissed off that they have to wait a long time for a visa decision (but honestly, I can sometimes cry about that particular point too 😅)
The most ridiculous that usually they didn’t have everything they want even in their own country!!
Yes, maybe people deal with stress like that and it’s their defensive reaction (that’s what my friend says). Or maybe they’re just brazen (that’s what I say).
Don’t get me wrong. I sincerely sympathize with all those who are suffering from this war, but I believe that you should always be grateful for what you have. Especially if you are given it free and with good intention.
I really want the world to know us as a kind, hospitable, hardworking people. I hope to live up to that description. Is this description also a part of yours idea of the Slavic people or not?
