Answer by BURRRRRP!!
the men are macho!! lol. actually, my sociology teacher told us about a documentary about people trying to adapt everybody loves raymond to russian tv but it proved difficult because raymond is not macho enough (but they wanted to keep the spirit of the show). also, russians seem portrayed as a bit dumb, the men at least, all muscles in their arms and none in their brains. the women i dont really notice too much of a pattern . . . the only russian woman in the media i can think of was tatiana romanov from from russia with love and she seemed just like a normal bond girl lol
