The Most Beautiful Russian Women

The Most Beautiful Russian Women

When you see the term "Beautiful Russian Ladies", most likely what pops into your head are all the Russian women and mail order brides advertisements you see online.
(From what I can see, the Russian women dating services are extremely popular...LOL).
But the entertainment world is full of beautiful women that are Russian or of Russian descent.
For instance...
Pamela Anderson...Russian ancestry on her mother's side.
Phoebe Cates... her maternal grandmother and father were of Russian Jewish origin.
Carol Kane...her grandparents emigrated from Russia.
Mila Kunis...born in Kiev, Ukrainian SSR, before the collapse of the Soviet Union in 1991.
Milla Jovovich...also born in Kiev, Ukrainian SSR, before 1991.
Gwyneth Paltrow...her father was of Ashkenazi Russian Jewish descent.
Winona Ryder...her paternal grandparents were Jewish immigrants from Russia.
Nicole Scherzinger...her mother is Hawaiian and Russian.
Lesley Ann Warren...Her family was of Russian Jewish descent.
Natalie Wood...her parents were Russian immigrants.

And here are some more beautiful Russian woman that you may or may not have heard of...

At the age of nine her father enrolled her in acting classes and that led her to meeting her agent Susan Curtis.

This Hub sucks the big one because it has no purpose. Russian women are beautiful (even though the list contains Ukranians who vehemently see themselves as a separate nation). You could make a similar Hub about the women from Brazil -- the end effect would be the same nothing -- no overarching significance or meaning. Why not just make a list of women you regard as "beautiful" and drop the whole country thing because you draw no correlation between the two. I could do a Hub about the beautiful women of Batswana. So what? You can find beautiful women around the globe -- does this have a point, a message, a purpose? Just posting pics of beautiful women without an underlying message of SOME kind is not really a Hub; it's just your private collection of eye candy. You aren't a writer. You obviously have no depth for writing. Just occupy yourself with posting pics on the Web. You have nothing to say.

I've been to Russia on a couple of occasions (specifically Moscow) and eventually ended up marrying a woman from the city. There is no doubt that Russia has an uncountable number of beautiful women, but your Hub really amounts to nothing to more than an advertisement -- like those encouraging American or European men to seek wives in Russia -- with the exception that you don't go so far as to provide an address and a place to which an interested party should send a check. If you have about $2,500 in change to pay for an Aerofolot ticket from Los Angeles to Moscow, yeah, you can find yourself inside Moscow. And what then? If you can't speak Russian, can't read cyrillic, you're pretty much dead in the water. I suppose on some benign level, it's fine to say, "look at at all the pretty girls in Russia (or Ukraine -- if you dare travel there)." But, this doesn't amount to much more than having a pictogram-type Hub, saying, looking at all the great sunsets in the same locations.

I'm glad that you've gotten "6.2 million views" on your Hubs. That's great. I just found this particular piece to be bereft of content and vapid.

No actually it's "look at all the beautiful and talented women that have Russian heritage that you might not know about."

But it seems you have a "mad on" about this Hub so I'll drop it and again wish you a nice day.

OK, this is interesting. And your point is? There are "beautiful & talented" women~men~PEOPLE~all over the world.

Believe it or not, some individuals are much more concerned with Intelligence, integrity, authenticity & compassion.

"Beauty is skin deep. UGLY goes right to the bone." Beauty fades & sags. Goodness shines brightly & uplifts.

What is pleasing to the eye, can be fatal to the heart. Beauty is surely a gift & while it is coveted, it is also tenuous for the Beauty and blinding to the admirer.

"Beautiful people" in general receive more attention & adoration, attraction & what appears to be success....when beauty is no longer, so too is all of the rest.

Russia and/or the Ukraine have no monopoly on Beautiful women.

Ooooh...yeah you're right. It's probably not PC to call a woman beautiful anymore. Good point. Next I'll be some kind of "shaming" because I didn't do everyone in the world in a Hub.

Must be politically correct at all times.

And no Russia, Ukraine, Thailand, the Phillipines, the Middle East, India, Korea, Japan and Native American women (I've done Hubs on all of them) do not have a monopoly on beauty.
