Anna, a Russian patriot who loves her homeland in the Netherlands, complained about the poor treatment she received because of the war in Ukraine. The Russian woman, who has been living abroad for 25 years and is looking for a "first-class life for her children," was suddenly outraged that Russian citizens in the civilized world are treated "like animals," while Ukrainians are protected at all levels.

As Anna told the propagandists, the IDPs from Ukraine have not lost their sense of pride and avoid communicating with Russians in a foreign country. She sees this as "discrimination on the basis of nationality."

A Russian woman in the Netherlands lives well on disability benefits, but she regularly faces reproaches from locals for paying taxes for her maintenance. At the same time, she is outraged that she has to put up with price increases and pay to the state that helps Ukrainians.

Anna has a daughter. She and her husband once moved from Russia to give her a better life - a decent education, travel, and the opportunity to earn good money. The Russians expected to be welcomed in the Netherlands with open arms, but they faced a harsh reality.

As soon as Russia went to war in Ukraine and Russian officials began threatening the Netherlands with a nuclear strike, the mood of the locals changed. Suddenly, Anna, her husband and daughter had to hide their nationality.

"For the past two years, I have stopped understanding what is happening because my child is afraid to speak Russian. My husband and I also speak only Dutch with each other on the street because I am afraid to communicate with him in my native language. The atmosphere of Russophobia has spread like a cobweb. Any manifestation with the word RUS is rejected, cut off with anger and pain," the Russian woman said.

The emigrant said that she feels "disadvantaged" because she is looked at "like an animal."

She also emphasized that Ukrainians refuse to cooperate with Russians. For example, one Ukrainian woman opened her own cleaning company abroad and hired compatriots, but when they received an order from Russian-speaking clients, she rudely refused. A similar situation occurred at a service station. Proud immigrants from Ukraine refused to help Russians for any money.

In the end, Anna summarized that the police, court, government and press in the Netherlands mostly side with Ukrainians in conflict situations, so Russians feel fear and uncertainty in a foreign country. Nevertheless, they also do not want to return home, so they simply hide their pro-Russian position and shamefully pretend to be ethnic residents.
