Russian Video: Circus School in Russia!

Hello,

Today we’ll watch a several video fragments about kids who are studying in Russian Circus School. Maybe these kids work too much, maybe they did not play as much as another kids of their age but don’t feel sorry for them. They love circus and they want to work in circus “Because it’s beautiful in circus”.

Russian Video: Mother for a little mammoth (cartoon)!

Russian Video: Mother for a little mammothHello,

Today we are watching a cute and touching old Soviet cartoon “Mother for a little mammoth”, 1981 with English subtitles. Once, a little mammoth cub melted out from ice in the Arctic… and since he was a very little mammoth cub he wanted to find his Mommy. Because, he truly believes “It’s not possible for children to be lost” (Ведь так не бывает на свете, чтоб были потеряны дети).

Director of this animation movie is Churkin Oleg.

Russian Video: In Local Train (Suburb of Moscow, Russia)!

Russian Elektrichka

Everyday since we moved to Suburb of Moscow I take a local train to go at work (to Moscow) and back. And I really love to take pictures and shoot videos so I will show you a lot of these stuff. That is interesting even for me because that is absolutely new area for me and I feel a little bii like stranger here.

By the way such local trains we call elektrichka (электричка) in Russian because this train is moving by electrical power.

The video is a little bit noisy because there was another train ran the same direction.

Russian Video: Patriarch Kirill Visits Kiev!

The head of Russia’s Orthodox Church Patriarch Kirill started his visit to Ukraine with conducting a service at the monument to Prince Vladimir the Baptizer at Vladimirskaya Gorka Park in Kiev.

“Kiev is our common Jerusalem, and it is Kiev that the Russian Orthodox faith came from,” Patriarch Kirill said. “We will pray for the prosperity of Ukraine, for peace and consent among its citizens.”

Patriarch Kirill is one of the most intellectual people of our time and I always like to watch his meeting and listen to his speeches:

Russian Video: Yuri Vizbor: Nightly Journey!

Hello,

We did not post Russian Video from Russia for several days… We moved from Moscow to some town (Korolev) outside Moscow and we had problems with Internet, now Kyle is in Ukraine and has some problems there, so I’ll leave for Ukraine to help him in a little bit. To follow our news read our blog “Windows to Russia” and here I just want to publish one of my most favorite songs “Nightly Journey” maybe because I will have one soon not by car but by train… but it still will be Nightly Journey!

Нет прекрасней и мудрее средства от тревог
Чем ночная песня шин
Длинной-длинной серой ниткой стоптанных дорог
Штопаем ранения души

Не верь разлукам старина их круг
Лишь сон ей-богу
Придут другие времена мой друг
Ты верь в дорогу
Нет дороге окончанья есть зато ее итог
Дороги трудны но хуже без дорог

Будто чья-то сигарета стоп-сигнал в ночах
Кто-то тоже держит путь
Незнакомец незнакомка здравствуй и прощай
Можно только фарами мигнуть

Не верь разлукам старина их круг
Лишь сон ей-богу
Придут другие времена мой друг
Ты верь в дорогу
Нет дороге окончанья есть зато ее итог
Дороги трудны но хуже без дорог

В два конца идет дорога но себе не лги
Нам в обратный путь нельзя
Слава богу мой дружище есть у нас враги
Значит есть наверно и друзья

Не верь разлукам старина их круг
Лишь сон ей-богу
Придут другие времена мой друг
Ты верь в дорогу
Нет дороге окончанья есть зато ее итог
Дороги трудны но хуже без дорог
Дороги трудны но хуже без дорог

There’s no wiser and more helpful remedy for woes
Than the tires’ nightly song.
With an endless silver thread of wearing down roads,
Sewing o’er lacerations of the soul.

Refrain:
Do not get fooled by partings, chum –
Their round’s a myth, for certain!
Be sure, we’re in for different times,
My friend. Believe in journey!
There’s no ending to the journey.
Here’s an inference, instead:
Though journeys are hard, but their lack is bad.

Refrain.

Like a burning cigarette, a stop light in the night:
Someone’s also on his way.
‘Fellow-stranger, lass or lad, greetings and good bye!
Got but headlights on to wink your way.’

Refrain.

Either o’er the engine cowling Morning star suspends,
Or wind-screen is besprent with rain.
Two wheel tracks are stretching out, left behind your back
So you haven’t lived your life in vain.

Refrain.

Up and down the road-bed runs, but don’t deceive yourself:
You and I may not turn back.
Frankly speaking, God be praised that we have foes, my friend
Accordingly, there must be friends as well.

Refrain.

That’s difficult to say yet but maybe we will have to have some posting break for a couple of weeks… But we will be back. I promise!

Russian Video: Tsar Nikolai II in Poltava, 1909!

Recently, we’ve watched a video about celebration of 300 anniversary of Poltava Battle in Russia and Ukraine. Today we found a unique documentary about celebration of 200 anniversary of Poltava Battle. This video was made in 1909 and you’ll see a visit of Russian Tsar Nikolai II to Poltava.

I think that is a great silent video – maybe you could come up with some idea about music for it?
