Meanwhile, it previously reported that an interracial couple shared their experience living in Russia.

The couple, a Nigerian man and a Russian woman, talked about their experience in an interview where they were asked about how people reacted to their relationship.

The Nigerian man said when people saw them together they stared at them strangely.

He noted that some people made side comments and others smiled at them. He added that sometimes people who travelled out did not seem surprised about them.

The man noted that he believed that people always stared at them because it was not common for people in Russia to see interracial couples.
