FWIW- Back in 2001 or so I did work with a nice young woman (in her mid 20's) who was born and raised (somewhere) in the USSR....
She was very straight forward, wasn't looking to make new friends (at work anyway), hardly ever smiled, no external sense of humor, and 100% never spoke about life in the USSR.
When she first started working for us... we tried to kid around with her to break the ice... never happened- we gave up on that. You could tell she wasn't the kind of person you would mess with either- very serious.
I guess it supports the 'life was tough' in the 80's/90's in USSR theory.
