Russians like Germans huh?
According to census of 1989 the USSR had about 3 mln of Germans. Historically we've never had problems with those Germans who lived on Russian territory. Hence there's no reason for dislike. WWs of course spoilt their image in Russian eyes but people mostly realize fringe lunatics like Hitler inhere in every nation (we had Dzhugashvilli).
Dostoevsky often portray Germans as villians? For example the character, Amalia Ivanovna
Maybe because he had some Polish roots? :)) lol
Amalia Ludvigowna Lippewechsel? :) Not that she was portrayed as villain, she was rather quarrelsome. Your last name is story-telling: die Lippe - a lip, der Wechsel - change. So this is someone moody who likes to always screw lips up. Nice to hear that people abroad read some Russian literature.
Dostoevsky is very interesting personality with non-standard views on things. For instance he was convinced that Russia shouldn't have ever helped any of other Slavic countries (some kind of "anticrow" rhetoric).

Could someone explain why Poles call Italy Wlochy? Does anyone know the etymology?
