Russian Video: Moscow by Expat's Eyes!

Hello,

Today we have a chance to look at Moscow from a very unusual (of course, for us) point of view. Swedish journalist, Kina Zeidler, takes us to some of the most prestigious places in the Russian capital:

This video was fun for us! That’s absolutely not our style of life but…

Best wishes and maybe sometimes it’s fun to have such “adventures”,

Russian Video: Soviet Sport!

Hello,

I just love this video!

This video is about those times when we (USSR) were the first. When we won on Olympic games 50-60 gold medals. When our sportsmen struggled not for money, but for honor of the Soviet Motherland. [The description from the author of this video — And I admit that is very right description]

For our readers who wants to know more:

The song is Heroes of Sports
Music: A. Pakhmutova Lyrics: N. Dobronravov Singer: M. Magomaev (1972)

The main idea of the Hymn of Soviet Sport is:

We have to live brightly in sport and
win honestly.

We believe firmly in sports heroes.
We need the victory as air,
We want all the records have
our bright names!

Best wishes,

Hello,

Today Russian President Dmitry Medvedev has hosted Russia’s 72 Olympic medallists at the Kremlin following their recent return from Beijing. He said the country’s good Olympic performance was achieved despite the difficult and dramatic events Russia had to deal with in the Caucasus. He also added that he believes Russia can achieve even better results.

Russia Video: Moscow Olympic Games 1980!

Hello,

When I’m thinking about the Beijing Olympic Games what was recently over, I think about Moscow Olympic also! I was born in Moscow and have been live here all my life but I’ve never watched the Moscow Olympic Games. So today we all have a chance to watch Opening Ceremony of Moscow Olympic 1980. We chose a Kid’s Part of the Ceremony to watch today. Kids are always touchy and beautiful! So lets watch:

Best wishes and to watch shows with kids especially so nice is good for everybody,
Russian Video from Russia strongly believe in it! :)

Russian Video: Ballad of a Hussar (one more song)!

Hello,

I think that today we will listen to one more song from Ballad of a Hussar movie. Now it will be a funny song one of my most favorite!

What is the song about?

Some King lived a very full life: he loved wine, war and women and even when Death came for him he fought her — but Death was “treacherous” and finally caught him… and the old reprobate died as he lived!

For our Russian readers I recommend a very interesting article about history of this movie.

And maybe it’s interesting to watch a full version of this movie but only in Russian – sorry.

That’s really a nice idea that when Death comes you can fool and fight her (sometimes)! :)

Best wishes,

Russian Video: Ballad of a Hussar!

Hello,

Recently we talked about an old Soviet movie: Ballad of a Hussar (Гусарская баллада), 1962.

Today I want to show you one more scene from this great movie and of course with a Good Song! The Russian name of this song is “Давным-давно” and I would translate it like “Long time ago”. That is typical marching song with refrain “Давным-давно, давным-давно, давным-давно…”

Best wishes, think after this song we all feel like Hussars, what means pretty good! And if someone doesn’t feel good enough they for sure should watch this video again! 😉
