You sound as ignorant as an American. We are not all Russian and you know it. It’s like stating you are all Turks , for many reasons. The differences are language and religion.
I hate to break it to you man, but you as a nation have some serious branding issues. You are indistinguishable with Russians to virtually everybody on the planet, except maybe your immediate neighbors. I bet even people in Vladivostok think Minsk is in Russia
As you say, Serbs are a tiny nation. But what they lack in size, they sure make up by being the loudest fuckers in any gathering. Or forum.
(I almost said >>we<< , but I am only 37.5% Serb. )
The bottom line is: we understand the ancient truth – there is no such a thing as bad publicity
