Russia is not a place known for its large African community. Afro-Russians, as many like to be known, make up only roughly 40 of its population of more than million.

For my whole life I encountered maybe six or seven mixed families like this, although you can see dozens of Africans in several cities Moscow, St. Petersburg, Krasnodar, Voronezh, Rostov-na-Donu, Tambov — they are students mostly, or diplomatic employees, or sometimes but very seldom even tourists. African students pick some African students pick some odd jobs like handing out ads or working as walking ad, or delivery. I asked some Africans who live and work here for a long time, as well four or five Afro-Russians about racism, including kids. They denied any racial problems quite firmly.
