"Let it be clearly understood that the Russian is a delightful person till he tucks in his shirt. As an Oriental he is charming. It is only when he insists on being treated as the most easterly of western peoples instead of the most westerly of easterns that he becomes a racial anomaly extremely difficult to handle."
Rudyard Kipling (1865-1936), British author, poet. "The Man Who Was," Life's Handicap (1891).

Во во! Я вот только не могу понять, это эксклюзивно для русских так, или китаец в костюме - это тоже аномалия?
