There is no mindset, it is just a normal state of nature. American men were like that in the 40ies and 50ies. Think John Wayne for one.

When I was on the Ukrainian airline from Vienna to Kiev, once the plane got into the air, I pushed back my seat so that I could get some sleep. The man behind me said "What do you think you are doing?" and acted like I was doing something wrong. This is the first time I had heard of anyone objecting to another person putting their seat back in an airplane, because this is what you have the right to do and everyone knows this. The sense I got is that if you live in a Slavic country, you are going to have to deal with a lot of intimidation and fighting for territory. I prefer the Latin Cultures where there is a deep sense of politeness built into the culture.

Well, I think there it would be good manners there to ask if you could push the seat back. He could be reading or doing something. Suddenly the seat comes down. But again, Ukrainians are not Russians. The population is big, the people are selfish for the most part. Men do not make good friends with each other. All Slavs are not the same.

From what I remember, he was sitting back and talking to his friend and smoking like a chimney. He never asked me if I minded if he smoked. Do you really ask people if you can move your seat back? I haven't seen this before. With the airlines today - you are seated into an ever smaller seat, can't move, and may break your neck if you turn around and talk to someone. Although, if someone complained, I suppose you could get charged with terrorism these days.

The Russians have their own martial arts. There was a great series on History Channel that every week explored a different martial art in a different country. They had a whole episode on the Russian martial arts.
