Many of them are on government assistance and are a complete drain on the west hollywood community, very rude too. Several years ago, the owner of the Stolichnaya bakery at the corner of Fairfax and Sta Moncia Bl was interviewed by Leslie Stahl for stealing welfare money from the County. The Russians are complete welfare grubbers and populate many low income housing units in Weho.

Indeed, the Russians in west hollywood are notoriously difficult to deal with. And they are bigger (and whinier) beneficiaries of rent control and government subsidities than anyone in the city.

Next time one goes to Laural hardware, or abbey, or somewhere on the sunset strip know that half the drink cost is going to welfare checks for weho russians. lol

Excuse me, most people whom you call "Russians" here are not ethnic Russians--not even partly. So please stop smearing entire nation because of your small-minded, provincial ignorance.

As to West Ho, LA and many other places' abused welfare system--it is the corrupt government employees who work in it and take bribes who make it bad, and they're not Russian-speaking.

The owner of Stolichnaya bakery is not Russian. OK?

As to stealing from the County... it takes two to tango, and there's a counterpart in the County--and every time they steal, from County, State or even the Feds, you got the corrupt government workers who sit on the feeder and know damn well how to cover up their deeds. Their "rates" aren't that secret.

Wait you are accusing the government officials of being corrupt... because they succumb to the demands of the welfare populace?

I guess I am missing the connection. What are they gaining?
