Do you know that we write the address the other way around in Russia?
What is more important – an individual or a state?
An individual or a society?
In all countries, while putting an address in some official documents one needs to mention small details at the first place, like personal name and a surname, and only after to specify the exact adress of the place. Starting from a house number, street name, apartment number and then mentioning a city and state.
But not in Russia!
Only here the address begins with the country, then there is the city, street, house and, finally, the combination of letters that you used to consider one’s personality.
From the general, so to speak, to the particular.
