i have never come across hate in 23 years in the USSR or Russia. TV never taught people to hate Americans. while Americans were loathing everything Soviet on TV, they were watching news or ballet.
in 1991 USSR, we were out late in Moscow, i took my American passport and told my Russian fiance i would get some bread from a closed store. i said "i am American, i am very hungry" in Russian. the store had closed about 45 minutes before and they were doing inventory, i suppose. a man opened the door and asked "what do you need?" and allowed me to buy bread.
once before boarding a plane, a lady selling tomatoes at the bus stop for the airport asked me if i wanted 3 KILOGRAMS i said, no 3 PIECES. she handed me three and said they are yours. free. at that time, tomatoes were very expensive in winter.
my wife applied to a local school for a job. they learned her new HUSBAND was American, they hired ME. (and i was on vacation... i thought).
i still visit the school when on vacation. my son attends and is often asked to speak to other English classes to tell about life in USA. he is 10.
when he was born, 9 days old, i joined several cars in a left turn lane we created. i asked the police (with American accent) to be quick interrogating me because i had a baby in the car, he asked how old, when i said 9 days, he handed me some police ID documents a colleague had left behind and asked me to deliver them to the neighboring republic where we live. so instead of a fine, i was given a duty.
and many more instances. old people walking to fish light up when i ask for directions on the road and tell them i am American. Russian people are always friendly to me and seem to harbor much less hatred than Americans. i have learned to mimic that quality.
