I can think of some examples:
- Not offering your seat to the elderly, pregnant women or young children.
- Making prolonged eye contact with strangers or watching people intently

Another thing is a complication for non-native speakers with using “ты” and “Вы” when address to someone. It is rude to address to unknown person as “ты”, also it is rude and impolite when address to an older person, to a boss, to anyone with whom you both are not in close and friendly relationsVote Up Vote Down
