My belief is that we have separation on the club between the Russians/Belarusians and the N Americans. Russians are GENERALLY a different type of people....I know, I was in a 5 year long relationship with one and have many Russian friends. So this is in no way bigotted. Hell, I'm Greek...and we Greeks have our own set of unique idiosyncrasies .

They need their ego stroked and don't take criticism too well. It hurts their feelings and if their feelings are hurt, they mope. So it's a real battle trying to motivate them. Now if there is only one or 2 on the team...it's easier to manage...but with 3 or 4, I can see a group rebellion scenario that can have a devastating effect on team chemistry.
