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.
