That is absolutely not true. I have to wonder where you learn the stuff you say sometimes.

Wasn't much different five years ago either. It's closer to the river along the Amur where there's actually a larger Chinese population. That kid talks, but shoots his mouth off without actually knowing the subject matter.

What is the first impression of Vladivostok like? Is it generally positive or negative? Or does that generally depend on the climate?

First Impression...the women are absolutely stunning. I'm not generally interested in Russian, although I've always observed that they are fit and tall. But being in Vladivostok, that was the first impression I had.

The city is also very enjoyable to walk around. I walked everywhere. It had a very Soviet meets San Francisco feel.....i.e. a bit drab in some spots, and quite visibly interesting in most of the downtown areas.

Regarding guys and girls. I was quite surprised at how short many of the skirts were, and I was coming from South Korea where they were already quite short. Among the Russian guys, there were many drinking on the steets, and they were quite rough. That being said, I walked everywhere both daytime and nighttime, and I felt fine. Take in mind, that I could easily pass for a Russian person myself...just based on hair color alone.

Now China buys oil and gas from Russia using RMB Yuan to settle, bypassing USD. Sanctions would not apply to border trade, where Rubles and Yuans are used. There are lot of trade potentials in that part of the world.

Still ridiculous. Far more time has been spent in relative peace than time spent at war among the three countries. Far more culture and technologies have been exchanged than slings and arrows. If anything, civil wars within each area has been the largest historical killer, but that's still a narrow look at things because we tend to overlook the years of relative peace and prosperity.

There are low cost airlines flying from South Korea, and South Koreans don't need to apply visas to visit Russia. But it remains less popular than other Asian countries with more South Koreans visiting other foreign cities in Asia.
