Athletistic/ Others. Daria Klishina, two-time European long jump champion, spoke about life in the United States. She said many Russians had not learned English.

– There are several neighborhoods in Miami with a huge concentration of Russians. Some of their residents have lived in America for decades and don’t speak English. They just don’t need it! You come to the store – there is a Russian-speaking seller, at the gas station there is a Russian-speaking gas station attendant. They only consult Russian-speaking doctors. People don’t consider it necessary to learn a language because they already feel comfortable with it. For them, everything seems as if they never left their country,” Klishina said according to the Championship.
