Pseudo-Soviet remnants in Armenia.

There is one word that I simply cannot stand on the blogs originating in Armenia. That word is "Камрад" (or "Камрадесса" for females). It's a transliteration of the word "comrade" - an old Soviet term. In Armenian, the words comrade and friend are the same so the bloggers use "comrade" instead of "friend". To add insult to the injury, they use a Russian version.

It's truly a disgusting habit - another remnant of the Soviet past.
