Don’t Try To Leave the City of Omsk

Winged Doom

Located in the south-west of Western Siberia, the city of Omsk is the place to avoid, according to some of its residents. When comparing the wages and cost of living in Omsk and other major cities in Russia – the ratio is not in favor of Omsk. Salaries are clearly below the average in Russia, the cost of goods is also lower, but not enough. A characteristic feature of Omsk residents is the sad look on their faces.

In 2009, the popular internet meme “Omsk bird” (Winged Doom) and the catch phrase “Do not try to leave Omsk!” were created. They still seem to be haunting the Russian social media. Let’s see why.

    • Yes, but when and if possible at all…I left my native place (not Russian) for a better one and I´m glad I did. One can only “better” a place if all inhabitants agree with being more honest…hard worker and not to have any children.

      • I kind of get what you mean. Yes, it is difficult to make a positive impact for a community if the community itself does not agree that the impact you are making is a positive one. I am also all about working hard, but I’d like to one day have children of my own. As to honesty, it is the only way to make positive things happen.
