    when can you call yourself a -Muscovite-?

    https://themoscowtimes.com/news/russ...n-stride-64100

    you have to click on ANY article and scroll right to the bottom. there you see the -Buzzfeed- clips. by the way, fun and interesting to read. you will also find the -fact- when you can call yourself a Muscovite. by the way, it is only 2% of the cities population.... I definitely do not classify....

    Almost in Moscow ;b

    That's called Pod-Moscovia.

    And as to the actual location being the best, well- that is debatable.

    Strogino is still Moscow.only what is OVER the MKAD is not Moscow. But this was not meant like that. It was supposed to be a little on the funny side. i still rmember a joke from our good mayor Juri Michailovitch who admitted freely that hes forebearers were Tatars. And he also said - scratch a Muscovite and somewhere you find a Tatar-.
    There was also a story,many years ago, how many of the oh so proud BOSTON old WAP's had some black blood in them. because one oftheir forebearers had his dipstick stuck in somewhere else as well.
    Also also in South Africa, caused a big stink, how many true -van der Merve- staunch Boers had black blood in them.
    Property and propiska and registration is not everything...

    Strogino is in the North West Administrative District of Moscow. Together with places like Shchukino,Mitino,Tushino and the likes. Even our Mayor Sobranin lives here... (NOT on Rublovka)

    Strogino is just within / borders the MKAD, so is referred to as Moscow....

    Perhaps the question should also be about birth etc, using London as an example, often at work I was the only person that had lived in London for many years, I wold expect a similar situation in Moscow or St Petes

    well, the article says if 4 generations of you have lived and were born in Moscow, you can call yourself a -real- Muscovite.

    Could not find the article, but using that criteria, you are not a Muscovite and neither is Wally and probably about 74 percent of the people that currently live there, probably the same percentage as London or most major cities in the world.

    sorry mate. that is a bunch of claptrap. this is idea of "we were here first" and have the right to be here. everyone else/the dirty masses should piss-off back to their sad little village.

    Right.
