Hugs and kisses!
Nowadays many young people in Russia use kisses and hugs to greet a person! They usually do it even if they are not close friends, relatives or a loving couple. Moreover they can hug and kiss you even if you get acquainted just a few hours ago.
Of course not all the Russians are crazy about that! Some people express themselves discreetly. But don’t doubt! They are glad to see you!
Just don’t be surprised if a new acquaintance kisses you on the cheek or hugs you! Especially our old ladies fond of big hugs! Such a cordial hospitality is one of the national features.
But if it makes you feel awkward don’t be shy to say about that!
If not – let’s hug!
