My name is Igor Shiryaev. I am the editor in chief of the Internet mass media and website Different View.
I was born in Russia. I have been living in Russia for about 50 years. Moreover I have been working as a psychologist in Russia for about 25 years. That’s why I am good in Russia’s situations. The Russian soul is my everyday business. Sometimes I share my Russian experiences with friends and readers.
This website Different View is a private personal Internet mass media, registered and published in Russia. Sure it reflects the Russian mind and way of thinking. Sure it reflects my own personality. I don’t pretend I tell you any kind of absolute objectivity.
The Different View does not actually depend on any outside sponsor. It’s founded as an alternative to the official view. It’s truly independent and personal.
The Different View is a deep look in Russia by a Russian psychologist. At the same time the Different View is a curious look from Russia to the world.
Moreover as the editor in chief I publish different independent opinions and views by other authors if I believe they are true and interesting. I prefer topics connected with Psychology, History, Culture, Personality, Society, Travel and Humor. These are the main topics in the Internet mass media Different View. But sometimes I publish in this website very personal topics if I believe they reflect Russian soul and the situation in Russia or just they are interesting for me.
You may write me to ask any questions about Russia. Sometimes I answer or even advise and give consultations if I am not very busy. Also you may ask me to write an article to definite topic. Maybe I will write it if I like the subject. I can help you in any projects related to Russia in the fields of deep non-standard tourism and independent journalism. Also you can buy some my texts and photos. Contact me by e-mail if you want. Remember! I have to do nothing for you but I am open and friendly if I like you.
Welcome to the Russian mind and way of thinking!
I’m very sorry for my bad English. First of all I try to tell you about lovely Russia, about the Russian mind and way of thinking. I don’t pretend I speak correct and fluent English.
