I saw same kind of articles like this in Brazil's papers. Well, it's the result of actual US economic crisis.
The imagration agents must be happy. Maybe, in the future, someone will recognize the immigrants (legal or illegal) importance. Imigrants from Brazil or another country.

Rio/SP x Salvador = 1 hour 50 min.
Manaus x Salvador = you'll need two flights:
01) Manaus x Belém = 1 hour 40 min and Belém x Salvador = 1 hour 50 min
or
02) Manaus x Rio = 3 hours 20 min and Rio x Salvador: 1 hour 40 min.

I agree on what some people said.
But other than the ones already said, I'll add that its home to the seven wonders of the world.

The Cristo Redentor. Its so high above a mountain.

Well I don't know what these other people have been replying so I don't care to reference. I just discovered this post so I'm gonna answer from an american's point of view. I've never really met a russian lol. But from my honest point of view, I think Russia is a very dangerous country. There's too many murder counts and gang affiliations. I would just feel very out of place and unsafe living there. Of course I know some russians are going to object everything I just said (or typed) but I'm just honestly stating how I feel about that.

I remember being in a museum in Sao Paulo that celebrated black culture in Brazil, the things I saw there would have caused a ruckus in Political Correct America, but in Brazil it was very normal. Brazil is a very open and carefree society, music and party is a very important part of their lifes, regardless of the region, this is something all brazilians have in common in a very diverse country that is beautiful and different from state to state.

Southern Brazil is simply amazing, the well planned and nice cities enjoy very good services and facilities, they are clean, ordered, have very efficient mass transit systems and have living standards similar to those found in first world countries, specially in the state of Paraná, in the northern states things are different though, specially in the northeastern area (Nordeste) where cities are exactly the opposite, but people nevertheless is very warm and friendly, Brazil is a country that is easy to love, marry a brazilian and spent your life there.
I loved what you said about my country...
