Im an Anglo-Russian born in Moscow in 1994, the recovery years of the Cold War. I moved to England aged six but I still remember a lot of my time in Russia, very vividly too. I faced stigma because of my accent at school and it was extremely difficult to fit in. Ask, ask, ask!

think that's more of a history question but yeah, I guess a lot of communist leaders were Jewish.

Just that Africa in general is a rather corrupt and dangerous place to be. But i think that's a normal perception to be honest. We didn't speak too much about it in our house, but I know other families did.

Do you agree with Putin's aggression towards Ukraine?

Do you believe Putin's propaganda when he appears to insinuate that Russia would have any hope in hell of matching the EU in a military conflict? (the reality is that i'd be waving the British flag over what remained of Moscow within 6 months)?

Are you a communist or do you see it for the awful system that it is?

Have you ever been to a part of Russia cold enough to throw boiled water in the air and see it fall as snow instantly?

If you're talking about mixed race or black people, I'm indifferent. Skin colour is meaningless to me, it doesn't matter at all in my opinion. As long as you're a good person with a great personality we'll get along just fine.

I do not agree with what he is doing to Ukraine and I hope his atrocities are put to a halt as soon as possible. I have family in Odessa.

Putin is all talk to me, he waves his outdated hardware about like a matador. He might have reliable soldiers but Europe would annihilate him in any future conflicts that hopefully never arise.

I am not a communist as such but I do identify as quite left wing, socialist perhaps might be a better term to describe my political allegiance. I want to see improvements for the working class.

We took a few family trips to Yakutsk in the Sakha Republic and water froze pretty fast there. But no, I never actually did that and I'm unsure if that could have actually happened.

Hope that answered your questions which I compliment. They were far more grilling than some of the pointless crap above your probing queries.

Again, I have no controversial views on this either, I believe that gay people should be allowed to have the chance to marry and should not be persecuted for who they want to be. Reinforced by the fact that one of my closest friends is a lesbian. I think that the Russian behaviour toward gay people is absolutely appalling, not that anyone's going to anything about it, which shows how far west their homophobic antics extend.
