Russian pseudo-quasi-folk music

It's affected by the Gypsy and Jewish cultural elements.

This is especially popular among the advanced urban youth.

When I visit some 'hipster' places in Moscow, it's playing there.

This one is a true folk music.

That's a Cossack folk - the southern Russia Cossacks culture is
close to other North Caucasus people, especially Circassians and
Ossetians.

"4NBoyz - SLAV SQUAT (UKIP DISS) 4K"

...

If someone in the UK believes those east-European immigrants ('the Slavs')
must be certainly doing those 'Slav Squats' in the streets, public transport
etc than it's a miscomprehension of what it really is.

This counter-cultural 'squat' fashion was originated in Russia, but it has
nothing specific to do with the Slavs, one should take it in the context of
the post-Soviet urban Gopnik culture <https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Gopnik>

The term 'gopnik' took place in the USSR, but still nobody knows for sure
where exactly it came from. It was in 'gray' language zone, it came to wide
and common use in the mid-1980s to designate hooligan-like [young low-life]
urban people that behave in an uncivilized way and make troubles to others.
However, at the time there still was no any (counter-)culture about that.

The latter formed in the 2000s due to the Internet, where the stereotypical
image / caricature of the Gopnik was developed, with a few 'canonical'
attributes, including the squat. It would be an intricate culturological
story to tell where exactly all Gopnik attributes came from (the explanations
cited in the Wikipaedia are poor), but such a canonical character was always
much less a real thing rather than a meme, which has spread recently in the
social networks. Squatting people can be seen in the Russian cities quite
rarely, but some of the [young] Russians find it funny and cool to present
themselves in the social networks etc in the 'true Gopnik' style. The Gopnik
photos one can find in the internet today are such posed jokes or 'jokes' or
photoshopped creatures of various levels of good and bad taste. This fashion
has spread into the countries neighboring to Russia including East Europe
where it took on the 'Slav' narrative.

Now it goes further to 'the West' under association with Russia.

"What is this 'Russians squat' and why is it suddenly cool?"

Another German outlet notices "instagram is full of creative imitators", asks
a question "why are everyone squatting now?" and provides a scientific (likely
leftist) explanation.

<https://shop.spreadshirt.de/Russenhocke/>

Some started to make money on it.

Since demand creates supply (and v.v.) there are enthusiastic persons willing
to promote the Gopnik(-like) style and culture among the 'western' public, eg.

In a world that constantly promotes youthfulness .. this modelling agency
dares to swim against the flow of what's popular. Instead of looking out for
the young, the hip, and the sexy; it opted to put the spotlight on people, 45
years old and up, who are beautiful despite their ages. It became the first
modelling agency for the older generation in Russia. ..

Masha and The Bear series is very much popular in YouTube. It's a
very generic production for children, although it represents quite
many specifically Russian elements. Adults and eldery love to watch
these animations too, and one of the videos has recently exceeded the
mark of 3,000,000,000 views


What is notable, most of these highly popular videos collect likes
and dislikes in proportion about 2:1, whereas the watchers' comments
are overwhelmingly approval and positive.

So, why so many dislikes? People who put dislikes prefer not to speak
out much in the comments. A realistic explanation to me is, that's the
part of 'western' public indoctrinated by the anti-Russia propaganda,
who feels painfully jealos while watching such a Russian 'cultural
expansion' through the fact that the videos appear to be very popular.

No Smrnov. Its because some collective with an axe to grind is paying
for bots to do a thumbs down. Polls on the 'net are *+entirely+* bogus
manipulations of the "public opinion" for private interest. You "Old
Believers" need to wake up and smell the pigshit.
