I think this video would be very interesting for everyone who wants to know as much as possible about the new disease Swine flu. Since we have some cases of Swine flu in Russia – Russian scientists try to make their researches and prognosis.
Today Yury Gendon, a virologist at the Mechnikov Research Institute in Moscow, will talk for Russia Today about Swine flu. We are going to watch:
Lets watch a short UFO video and think is it real?
I always love these UFO videos. It does not matter if they are real or not but that they could be real. So sit and have a watch of a declassified Soviet Union Video about a UFO that the Soviets followed or tried to follow with their jets…
This weekend we continue watching movies about WWII (or Great Patriotic War how we call it in Russia). Yes, here in Russia we have a lot of movies about WWII. Some of them we’ve already watched some of them we’ll watch later.
The theme of WWII is very important in Russian culture. 27 millions died cause of WWII, every family of former USSR has it’s own memory of WWII and we don’t want to forget about it.
Russian movies about WWII are very unique. You will not see a superhero there. Most of them are movies about just life of usual people in the war.
Today we are watching a very good movie “Zhenya, Zhenechka and ‘Katyusha'” (Женя, Женечка и ‘Катюша’). This movie is a story about adventures and love of a nerd in the war. (Yes, you can meet very different people in the war.)
You can believe me or not but all this adventures are true, they really happened at the end of WWII.
The story was told by Vladimir Motyl and Bulat Okudzhava.
Oleg Dal as Zhenya Kolyshkin Galina Figlovskaya as Zhenechka Zemlyanikina Mikhail Kokshenov as Zakhar Pavel Morozenko as Aleksei Zyryanov Georgi Shtil as Romadin Mark Bernes as Colonel Karavayev Adolf Ilyin as Divisional commander V. Schneider Vladimir Ilyin Lyubov Malinovskaya
Today we are watching a video in Russian language, but don’t worry you’ll understand it. You know that I like President of Russia and this video is about photo-exhibition “President“. More than 100 pictures of Dmitry Medvedev by Anatoly Zhdanov.
Photographer Anatoly Zhdanov of the ‘Komsomolskaya Pravda‘ newspaper says that the camera just loves Medvedev!
Let’s watch and see if it’s true:
…as for us we are going to visit this exhibition this weekend!

I just thought that we did not watch Russian animations for a long time. So today we will watch one beautiful speechless and very deep Russian short animated movie “The Button” (Пуговица), 1982. Director of this cartoon is an outstanding Russian animator Vladimir Tarasov. This cartoon I would recommend for any age.. But for little kids it’s better to watch it with parents. This way kids understand better the deep idea of this beautiful cartoon:
