About Ivan...

Greetings!
I'm a humble university student living in the city of Kaliningrad, Russia's most western city that is also its only exclave (well ignoring tiny unpopulated territories inside Belarus and Estonia). It is wonderful in here and, even though most of the German historical heritage has been irrecoverably lost (which is to regret), the city is still culturally rich and just comfortable to live in. The massive green beech trees alone make me happy, especially in contrast to the life in my polluted industrial hometown somewhere in South Ural.

I study linguistics here, so I do enjoy world's different cultures and languages in particular, I actually love historical and social topics as well. Therefore I'd be delighted if the postcard you are so kindly sending to me represents some cultural aspect of your surroundings, but of course that isn't an obligation, feel free to mail me just anything your soul wants me to get :).

I've not experienced that much cultures myself, but I've already been to Estonia, Finland, Sweden, Turkey and China. Looking forward to travel more once there are opportunities!

I also like playing billiards and taking long walks through the city and its surroundings, it is just relaxing to contemplate all the circumstances and ultimately the life in general while doing so.

Unfortunately I don't have that much possibilities to hike and wander through the nature, but I imagine I'd be a big fan.

Momentarily I am deeply worried about Russia's foreign policy. It just depresses me that we get even more isolated due to our precarious actions that are contrary to the international law. Hopefully everything will be peaceful one day. UPD: now a full scale war has broken out.. I highly condemn my governemnt and cannot tolerate all the horrors being created by it. Stay strong, Ukraine! May your arms be solid and reliable, may your people make it to defend their will. In the days of hardship the stream of my thoughts revolves around Ukraine. UPD2: how can you continue to live in a land that kills civillians? How can you breath in the same air that all the people supporting the war breathing in? I am in a state of despair.

Hopefully Russia will one day reborn under the new flag sullied with no blood just as it is seen in my profile picture.

Deutsch ist meine große Leidenschaft, manchmal überwiegt ihre Bedeutung für mich jene meiner Muttersprache. Also erfreue ich mich an allen Ansichtskarten, die auf Deutsch geschrieben wurden. Ich war noch nie in einem deutschsprachigen Land, aber ich hoffe sehr, dass das mir bevorsteht.

Jag talar också lite svenska, språket är ett äv mina ämnen här på universitetet. Jag tycker om svenska och Sverige, men jag måste lära mig mycket för att förstå väl den svenska kulturen. Så skriv gärna till mig på svenska ! :)

Thank you very much for reading my profile and have a great day!
