Let’s watch how Russia celebrates it. The official video from Russian state 1st Channel will show us 120 thousands of people who marched and celebrated on the streets of Moscow, Russian President and Prime Minister of Russia among of them.
Three days in October Muscovite and guests of our city can watch at nights amazing multimedia light shows… near the Kremlin, on the Red Square, near the Bolshoy Theater, Gorky Park and on the Saint Basil’s Cathedral.
I believe it’s very beautiful and I believe it’s cool. I also believe that a lot of people will be entertained… But I am not sure that is right thing to do to use our historical places and even church as a stage for such entertainment. Just my Soviet and Russian opinion.
Every year Russian Video from Russia publish a video of military parade on the Red Square. This year we all are going to watch the military parade in honor of Victory in the Great Patriotic War 1941-1945.

Twenty-five years have passed since the Chernobyl disaster… But people still remember the tragedy. Aleksey Yaroshevsky – correspondent of Russia Today visited Pripyat (nearest city to Chernobyl). Let’s watch his documentary!
The evacuation of Pripyat happened very rapidly – it took only 3 hours to evacuate the whole city. People was told to only take the bare necessities, as the authorities said it would only last about three days. As a result, most of the residents left behind their personal belongings, which are still there to this day…
Patriarch Kirill of Moscow and All Russia makes his traditional address to the nation on Easter Day.
Dear brothers and sisters,
Christ is risen!
During these days of Easter we greet each other with these wonderful words. And we reply, “He is risen indeed!” These exclamations, full of light and vitality, have been used for almost two thousand years. Over this period, powerful kingdoms arose and fell apart, languages and peoples came into and out of being, people took fancy to different ideas, many of which, incidentally, resulted in bitter disappointment. Everything was changing. But these words remained unchanged..
