American defender club of the Continental hockey League (KHL) “Siberia” Sam Lofquist in an interview with YouTube channel of the team spoke about stereotypes about Russians.
“Many Americans believe that you are cold, unfriendly, but I disagree. If you’re friendly with the Russians, they are probably the most warm and helpful people,” said Lofquist. Thus, in his opinion, the Americans and Russians have much in common.
Hockey player said that since childhood wanted to get to Russia and started learning Russian language. “When the opportunity came to play in the KHL, I could not refuse. Novosibirsk — one of the best places I have ever seen in Russia. I really like this city,” he added.
