Over the course of centuries, the vocabulary and literary style of Russian have also been influenced by Western and Central European languages such as Greek , Latin , Polish , Dutch , German , French , Italian and English ,  and to a lesser extent the languages to the south and the east: I was young and ill-educated and I had had to think out my problems in the utter silence that is imposed on every Englishman in the East. Never tell me, by the way, that the dead look peaceful. George Orwell Shooting an Elephant In Moulmein, in Lower Burma, I was hated by large numbers of people — the only time in my life that I have been important enough for this to happen to me. Significant Russian-speaking groups also exist in Western Europe. Various Burmans stopped me on the way and told me about the elephant's doings. This was the rainy season and the ground was soft, and his face had scored a trench a foot deep and a couple of yards long. I had almost made up my mind that the whole story was a pack of lies, when we heard yells a little distance away. It seemed dreadful to see the great beast Lying there, powerless to move and yet powerless to die, and not even to be able to finish him.
I had already sent back the pony, not wanting it to go mad with fright and throw me if it smelt the elephant. The orderly came back in a few minutes with a rifle and five cartridges, and meanwhile some Burmans had arrived and told us that the elephant was in the paddy fields below, only a few hundred yards away. I decided that I would watch him for a little while to make sure that he did not turn savage again, and then go home. They were watching me as they would watch a conjurer about to perform a trick. As soon as I saw the dead man I sent an orderly to a friend's house nearby to borrow an elephant rifle. When I pulled the trigger I did not hear the bang or feel the kick — one never does when a shot goes home — but I heard the devilish roar of glee that went up from the crowd. This happened more than once. He neither stirred nor fell, but every line of his body had altered. They seemed to make no impression. It was obvious that the elephant would never rise again, but he was not dead. I looked at the sea of yellow faces above the garish clothes-faces all happy and excited over this bit of fun, all certain that the elephant was going to be shot. During the end of the 18th and 19th centuries, a period known as the "Golden Age", the grammar, vocabulary, and pronunciation of the Russian language was stabilized and standardized, and it became the nationwide literary language; meanwhile, Russia's world-famous literature flourished. I did not then know that in shooting an elephant one would shoot to cut an imaginary bar running from ear-hole to ear-hole. Afterward, the influx from the countries of the former Soviet Union changed the statistics somewhat, with ethnic Russians and Ukrainians immigrating along with some more Russian Jews and Central Asians. In a number of locations they issue their own newspapers, and live in ethnic enclaves especially the generation of immigrants who started arriving in the early s. I did not even know that the British Empire is dying, still less did I know that it is a great deal better than the younger empires that are going to supplant it. It was a bit of fun to them, as it would be to an English crowd; besides they wanted the meat. He becomes a sort of hollow, posing dummy, the conventionalized figure of a sahib. That would never do. One day something happened which in a roundabout way was enlightening. Alive, the elephant was worth at least a hundred pounds; dead, he would only be worth the value of his tusks, five pounds, possibly. The crowd would laugh at me. To come all that way, rifle in hand, with two thousand people marching at my heels, and then to trail feebly away, having done nothing — no, that was impossible. And it was at this moment, as I stood there with the rifle in my hands, that I first grasped the hollowness, the futility of the white man's dominion in the East. But instead of saving a minisecule amount of self-respect for her own golden years, she chows down like the Amazon gift card they paid her with was worth it.
