Question How is life in the Pacific Coast of Russia?

I'm curious about the Pacific Coast of Russia...

Does anyone know how is life in that region?

Does anyone here already visited Vladivostok, Magadan, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Petropavlovsk-Kamchatsky or any other city in that region?

And just out of curiosity, does people here consider a white Russian who was born and raised in Vladivostok as an European or as an Asian?

I see them as Siberian.
The Russian land East from Perm i consider Siberia.
Which is not Europe/Asia imo.
I see it as a whole different continent.

MalaMan, there is no such thing as "white Russian" and "black Russian"))))

( unless we are talking of children of Africans born in Russia...
So let me rephrase it then; all Russians are white, unless we are talking about people of different ethnic background living in Russian Federation.

They may not be ethnically Asian but since they are born and raised in an area that is considered Asia, the Russians of Siberia are Asian in my book.

That's really something I did not expect - regarding Russians being considered one of the 56 ethnic groups of China! Thanks for the info man!

I've heard that Russians of the first wave of immigration (soon after the revolution in 1917) settled in China ( the rest escaped to Europe, and settled mostly in France and Germany.)
But I am not sure in what city/province - Harbin may be?
I've heard that some people from the Russian Far East move to China as well due to economic hardship.
A lot of Chinese on another hand move to live in Russian Far East, since it's becoming increasingly depopulated.

There are White Russians.. What are Belorussians if they aren't White Russians?

But seriously, Русь people are Русь. In Russia we have no need to call our own countrymen (who are Russian) any label other than Russian. Its completely ridiculous for me to say to my neighbor born and raised in Vladivostok he is 'Asian' this label doesn't matter as he is Russian.

And people living in the RF who are of diffrent ethnic backgrounds might be citizens of the RF, but they aren't Russian, they don't even call themselves Russian. Have you ever met a single churka that says "I am a Russian" ? Maybe "I live in Russian" "I am from Russia" "I was born in Russia" but never "I am Russian"
