APH: Russia x Mexico by Spirit-Okami APH: Russia x Mexico by Spirit-Okami
Omg I haven't drawn my babies in a long time. Why? Because developing my oc is much more important than shipping in my opinion. uvu 
Ugh do you know how long this took me to draw??? Like 10 hrs,  Goddamn my head hurts from just staring at the screen and my ass hurts from sitting down all freaking day. :stare:

Umm the height difference was a bit difficult to draw. Alejandra(156cm) is short and small compared to Ivan(182cm). She is a short lil Mexican haha.
I was inspired by a few people who made a drawing of their OTP explaining the history/relations and well I wanted to make one too. Now ehh the relationship between Russia and Mexico is kinda reallylong. xD;;  If you really want to read the longer version go right ahead  Why I ship RussiaxMexico?(updated version)I was reading it over and found some spelling mistakes(pfft i wrote it in 3 in the freaking morning) also I wanted to add a few more information.  
I honestly thought RusMex was a crack ship and I didn't even like.(Maybe because it was with that damned blued haired Mexican.) One day I saw a fanart of it but with a fem!Mexico. In the description it had a bit of info about the two. I decided to look up more information. Wow I honestly loved their relations. Nicknames I made up for RusMex: Drunk Romance(Vodka & Tequila/Vodquila idek lol) or Fire and Ice Pair(Due to Russia being a cold country and Mexico being a warm country.)Opposites attract~:iconpapmingplz:
If you do not like this ship, ok I respect that. Don't comment anything bad like "ERMAHGERD DIS SHEEP IZ SHO UGLEH" Ect ect..
 I just want people to know that this ship isn't crack. 
Ok history time (\o v o/)
♥A forgotten border♥
This may sound strange but there once was a time that New Spain ,


Ok if you do not like this ship that's fine I don't care but please don't say anything bad about it. Makes you look immature and disrespectful just sayin' 8| 
Diplomatic relations between both countries were established in 1890. Due to its good relations with Russia, Mexico has often purchased military equipment from Russia. Mexico was the first country in the Americas to establish relations with the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics. And from the start , relations were based on the sovereign equality of States, respect for independence and sovereignty , and non-interference in each other's internal affairs. Their relationship is is over 120 years old. //cries
Contacts between the countries began to settle in the late eighteenth - early nineteenth century. In March 1806 he arrived in the Mexican province of Baja California the Russian ship " Yunona " ; Nikolay Rezanov whose captain was one of the most prominent men of the Russian Empire . Nikolay Rezanov was a Russian diplomat and statesman who promoted the Russian colonization of Alaska and California. It was also the first Russian ambassador to Japan ( 1804 ) and supported Russia 's first attempt to circumnavigate the world . Furthermore, Rezanov was one of the founders of the great Company RusoАmericana , which supplied food and furs to the population of Russian colonies in America. Рrecisamente activities of this Company laid the foundation for both economic and diplomatic relations between our two countries. Alexander I , Emperor of Russia at the time, wrote in " Instructions for the First Russian Circumnavigation ": " Being in America I did not leave without comments aspects and customs of the indigenous population , art , religion, traditions , rules and manners "
In 1812 the Russian-American Company established in the territory of the Russian fortress California - Fort Ross - who became the northernmost Russian fortification in North America. Thus, the foundation for the establishment of official relations were settled . The first discussions on the establishment of diplomatic relations between Russia and Mexico began in the 20s of the XIX century in the city of London, Great Britain , but were unsuccessful. Later, in the 80s of the century the second round of talks was held . The December 11, 1890 the Russian Baron Roman Rosen, appointed by the Emperor Alexander III Extraordinary and Plenipotentiary Minister of the Russian Empire with the Government of the United Mexican States, and the Minister of Foreign Affairs of the United Mexican States signed the document Ignacio Mariscal corresponding . Years later , Roman Rosen wrote in his memoirs about the ceremony of delivery of credentials to the President of Mexico , Porfirio Diaz : "I've had the honor of presenting credentials to many monarchs and heads of state, but nowhere else this event was accompanied by a carefully organized so as impressive as in Mexico "ceremony . In the early twentieth century Mexico and Russia signed the first bilateral agreement on trade and navigation. But this document was never implemented due to two stormy events of the time which proved to be the Mexican Revolution of 1910 and the Russian Revolution of 1917. 
" Mexico and Russia walked very different paths that converge to live seemed both shocking social upheavals of the early twentieth century. During the twenties , both in Mexico and in the USSR , the conquest of the nation and its outward deployment began. Despite the disparity in the history of Mexico and Russia , the relations between our countries were based on principles of foreign policy ... When the legitimacy of the Mexican and Russian revolutions was recognized by European and American powers, diplomatic relations between our countries became feasible. " ( Luciano Joublanc , Ambassador of Mexico in Russia from 1999 to 2007 . Interervención at the Diplomatic Academy of the Ministry of Foreign Affairs of the Russian Federation , at the conference " Russia and Mexico "). In the early twentieth century Mexico 's consulates in the Russian cities of St. Petersburg , Moscow, Riga and Helsingfors , and Russian consulates in the cities of Mexico , Veracruz , Monterrey and Guadalajara opened. In 1924 Mexico was the first country in the Americas to establish diplomatic relations with the Soviet Union. And from the start , relations were based on the sovereign equality of States, respect for independence and sovereignty , and non-interference in each other's internal affairs. Both sides , Russia and Mexico , came to this date not spontaneously, but prepared with a series of historical events. What united them ? First, a number of common features of the October Revolution of 1917 and the Mexican Revolution of 1910 , mainly anti-imperialism and anti-militarism . The first Russian ambassador to Mexico was Stanislav Petskovskiy who fully personified the first generation of Soviet diplomats . He was a member of the Communist Party of the USSR , active militant of the revolutionary movement , participated in the Civil War in Russia and Deputy Commissioner of the Communist International .
Stanislav Petskovskiy worked in Mexico for two years. His chief merit was the general establishment of relations between the two countries , attracting the sympathies of Mexican society towards the Soviet Union, the development of scientific and cultural cooperation between our countries. During this period Mexico was visited by the famous Russian poet Vladimir Mayakovskiy , who later wrote his " Verses on America" ​​and the book " My Discovery of America." "The spirit of uniqueness and hospitality related I with Mexico , " - Mayakovskiy confessed in his book. In 1926 the first female ambassador in world history , Alexandra Kollontai , was appointed Ambassador and Trade Representative of the Soviet Union in Mexico . In 1944 Alexandra Kollontai was awarded the Order of the Aztec Eagle , which is the highest honor that is bestowed on foreigners in the United States of Mexico. In the early 30s the relations between our countries were formally discontinued , but in 1942 was restored completely. As Ambassador to the Soviet Union in Mexico was named Konstantin Umanskiy , outstanding Soviet diplomat of that era. Arriving in Mexico , the new Ambassador then gave a press conference dedicated to the struggle of the Soviet Union against Nazi Germany , the heroism of the Soviet people and the need for the opening of the so called second front. Another important steps undertaken Konstantin Umanskiy was to establish contacts with the broader Mexican society circles . At the time of World War II relations between our countries were further strengthened . Mexico was the only Latin American country that officially condemned the aggression of fascist Germany against the USSR. In late 1944 , thanks to the efforts of the Soviet Ambassador , relations between our countries continued to expand in times of war. Many decades have passed since that time , but the memory of Ambassador Umanskiy still alive in Mexico . The Excelsior newspaper wrote "With Konstantin Umanskiy a new era in our country's diplomatic activities opened. Many foreign diplomats worked in Mexico , but those who were here at that time need to recognize that they lived in the diplomatic world Umanskiy era . " Relations between our countries are especially intensified since 1968 because of legal and conventional consolidated basis . During this period our cooperation in the field of foreign policy , economy, science , culture and sport was developed. On May 30 of that year, during the official visit of Minister of Foreign Affairs of Mexico , Antonio Carrillo Flores, to the Soviet Union for the first time in the history of relations between our countries was signed "The agreement on cultural cooperation and science between the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics and the United States of Mexico . " In 1973 the President of Mexico , Luis Echeverria Alvarez , visited the USSR , which was the first official visit by a Latin American president to the Soviet Union. During the visit to the USSR President José López Portillo in the year 1978 further to the Tlatelolco Treaty , which prohibited the proliferation and stockpiling of nuclear weapons in Latin America Protocol was signed. This firm was a recognition of Mexico as a promoter of peace and international security.

.:APH:. USA x Panama by kamillyanna[HETALIA] 65 Years of KorPiri by melonstyleHonduCana Explained... by LKeiko UKArg rantI really.. I really need to talk about this pairing and my views on it. 
It's going to be long, and if you like/dislike the pairing, perhaps you can expand on your opinion while reading this. Please be aware that I tend to get bitter and use strong vocabulary, hope you don't mind. Also, my English skills are decreasing as time passes, so forgive my lack of wording, grammar mistakes and so on.
I will express my opinions, headcanons and interpretations of Argentina and UK's relationship in hetalia universe. Argentina, being specifically my oc, but could be also applied to other Argentina ocs.
(Fun game: take a tequila shot every time I say: Great Britain, UK or Argentina.) :XD:
Well.. where do I start.... okay, from the begining. 
 1700s.
Argentina and UK's relationship started long before Argentina was even a country. The UK was interested in argentine lands back in the 1700s, when Argentina was a colony part of the Viceroyalty of Perú, later separate
Why do I ship LietCze?Before Commenting please read the whole thing through! Thank you.
Updated 1. 2014.4.7 Added more details to some articles, organized it in a way more easier to navigate and added some personality of the two and how they work together.
To start this off; LietCze stands for Lithuania x Czech, you can call it something else, but that is what I'm going to call it.
Introduction
    Okay, so I've been getting a lot of comments saying that it is a crack ship and all, so since people are a bit unaware of the countries' relations I am going to tell you, because this has been on my mind for a long time, and I am tired of repeating myself when people ask "Why do you ship this" or when they say "It makes no sense". Well, no ones going to like everything I ship and I'm fine with that, I'm not asking you to ship it, I honestly don't care whether you ship it or not, it's my opinion not yours, please respect that opinion. People seem to not know much of these two'

Ah yes Russia and Mexico have a lot of info huehue <333
I'm currently developing a few headcanons based on their personalities and history. this is what I have so far..
♦I have a headcanon that Ivan loves to garden. Hehe these two would be the Garden Lovers. Mexico has a lot of
unique and beautiful plants/flowers plus Mexicans love to garden from what I've seen. Omg they would have so much fun gardening together jdkajkak. 
♦ They both would enjoy watching Mexican soap operas. After the Soviet Union broke up a lot of Russians started to watch this soap opera called "Tambien los ricos lloran/the rich also cry" and many more. In this article I read many Russians found their heroes in Mexican soap operas. kdhjkajk/ FEELS/ I'm imaging Ivan and Ale getting dramatic and snuggling while watching it lmao.
♦Dancing. Both cultures have beautiful dancing skills.(Russians tho holy shizz how do you even-) They both would dance with each other joyfully and enjoy it.<33 //giggles included//
♦ Ok Russians love to visit Mexico. Records state that Russians spend almost $8,000 while Americans spend $5,000-$6,000. Ivan would constantly visit Ale buying so many souvenirs and visiting the beaches. The natives make a lot of crafts with sunflowers since it was domesticated in the aztec times. Oh god Ivan just buy everything lmao xD. plus its warm in mexico and he wants to be in warm places. uvu 
♦ In Ivan's bio it said that he loves to cook. Pfft cooking is one of Ale's hobbies(Mexican food is delicious). :iconpapmingplz: Omg like if Ale comes back from a business meeting all tired Ivan would have cooked something special for her. kjdkajk <33
♦ Ok this one.. umm Ale wouldn't be afraid of him unlike the other countries. This goes with all Latin countries. Yeah I heard that russia wants to get close with latin america and they are happy about it. Ale would love to start conversations and hang out with him.

that all I have so far :iconmingcryplz:
But to some it all up RusMex's relationship is filled with romance, laughs & giggles, and snuggles. Perfect for each other. <333
