starting with a bitter joke ? Not really. I'm quoting a famous russian saying : "you can't read Russia with your brain"(россию умом познать невозможно)
I've been already a whole life in Russia, but only today I felt the need to socialize a bit more...

Bienvenue, Monsieur,

"(россию умом познать невозможно) - the classics says, "умом Россию не понять" (C) by F. I. Tyutchev. ;)

my mistake indeed, and you sure are concerned in me improving my russian !
Or is there a slight change in the meaning of the saying ?

Absolutely not, just it's from the rhyme and is the stable expression. ;)
