    Default Are Lithuanians more similar to Germans in a way than they would be to Russians?

    Lithuania was oppressed by Russian occupation, but Lithuanians do not seem to share much heritage or culture with them. While Lithuania didn't became a state until 1991, it clearly was a land and people all of it's own for centuries. When I see Lithuanians, they seem more similar to Germans in many ways- especially North Germans. They seem to be rather athletic, tall and proud people with good family men. The Russians are all over the place in temperament and they have a more eastern mindset. I feel that Lithuanians are lumped in with slavic people some times, when they really have little in common with them. They are strongly Baltic over Slavic influence.

    they have certainly a lesser russian influence than the lettons,mostly very uncultivated north americans (not you ofc) are confusing everything believe than the balts are slavic,they still thinking with the cold war axis in their minds ,but damn the berlin wall felt in 1989 , indeed they are maybe a bit more nearer of their western european cousins than their eastern ones, with their own cultural and linguistic differences ofc.

    Even their language is in the Balto-Germanic group.

    One major difference between Lithuanians and Russians is that Lithuanians actually smile. They are smiling all the time. I never seen a Russian smile. Ever.

    What? Lithuania has been a powerful, independent country for centuries!
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Polish...n_Commonwealth

    Regarding Germans, Lithuanians have almost nothing in common with them. The only common point was that Prussians in NE Germany are assimilated Baltic tribes related to Lithuanians.
    Genetically, Lithuanians are unfortunately very similar to Russians.
    Culturally, Lithuanians share a lot with Poles, both Catholic and both having a long common history.

    I think I meant to say Lithuania became independent in 1990 fro Soviet Rule. Lithuanians are nothing like the Poles. In fact, they often clash with each other. It would be like the difference between someone from Kentucky and New Jersey. Lithuanians are a Baltic people with Baltic language as well as customs. They are not Russian like at all.

    Rich, you are cooler when you call your employer a communist than when you try to troll like this
