It's pretty clear that what happens in Russia doesn't stay in Russia. We gotta admit, we're okay with that, otherwise, we wouldn't have all these delightfully strange and downright confusing pictures that give us a real sense of what's going on in the motherland. Between taking selfies with giant bears wearing babushkas and drinking straight-up propane we're impressed that an average day in Russia looks like a PCP party on steroids. 

That being said, we'll probably just admire it from afar while we enjoy a shot of vodka in their honor. Nostrovia!
