When Kyle for the fist time showed me Alexander Rybak’s interview with Russia Today. I was sure that’s the words of winner. For him Eurovision was a big party – no contest. Everybody were so kind to each other.Just a winner could say such words before the beginning of this contest!
(LYRICS) Years ago when I was younger I kinda’ liked a girl I knew. She was mine, and we were sweethearts, That was then, but then it’s true
I’m in love with a fairytale Even though it hurts. ‘Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind; I’m already cursed
Every day we started fighting, Every night we fell in love. No one else could make me sadder, But no one else could lift me high above
I don’t know what I was doing But suddenly we fell apart. Nowadays I cannot find her. But when I do we’ll get a brand new start
I’m in love with a fairytale Even though it hurts. Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind; I’m already cursed
She’s a fairytale Yeah Even though it hurts. Cause I don’t care if I lose my mind; I’m already cursed
Great Patriotic War of 1941-1945 (how we call WWII in Russia) and we are watching one of the best movies Only Old Men Are Going to Battle (В бой идут одни “старики”), by Leonid Bukov, 1973.
Sometimes age has nothing to do with experience. Watch this movie to find out how in a short span of time the twenty year old pilots can loose the title “wet behind the ears” and gain the battle respected title of “old men”.

Like all Russians I am very excited that Russia won the Ice Hockey World Championships (IIHF WORLDS 2009) for the second year in a row, beating principal rivals Canada 2-1 in the finals in Bern, Switzerland on Sunday night. You can read details about the victory at Russia Today.
And here I want to show you and watch again and again The Best Moments of this Final Game Russia vs Canada (all goals and the end of the game)!
Russians adore to watch Victory Day Salute. So I just felt that I must share it with you – my reader! For our Russian Video Blog I picked up a video where you can watch not just firework but people who watch it and shooting cannons.
All TV-channels in Russia show us a lot of movies about the Great Patriotic War (that’s how we call WWII) at the 9th of May (Victory Day).
Today we will watch one of classic Russian movies about the Great Patriotic War: The dawns here are quiet (А зори здесь тихие), 1972. Movie was directed by Stanislav Rostotsky based on Boris Vasilyev’s novel of the same name This film was nominated for an Oscar as “Best Foreign Film” in 1973.
The region was Karelia, Russia in 1942 during WWII. The scene begins in a railway station far from the front line, senior sergeant Vaskov is stationed with a group of young female (yes, female!) who are anti-aircraft gunners. Vaskov is not used to these “gunners”. They are active and playful personalities. Therefore he has clashes with the gunners over daily issues. But Vaskov, being the only man in the village, has to accommodate, no matter what the situation.
One day, two German paratroopers appear in the forest near their garrison….
You must watch to find out if female gunners saved the day:
Maybe after watching this movie you understand these words from one of the most powerful Russian song “Victory Day”: This is joy with tears in our eyes…
But such movies must be watched … because Nobody is forgotten and nothing is forgotten!
