Russian Video: Russian Crazy and Russian Driving….

Russians really have no concept of defensive driving. They run red lights like it is a law that they are suppose to run them. They drive right through any intersection like they have closed their eyes and hope God drives for them. This short video is so common to experience while you drive Moscow. This video is about St. Petersburg but as I see they drive the same there also…

In Russia I look both ways three times before I take off from a stop light and it has saved us multiples of time from having what you see in the video as a wreck. The light could be red and sometimes 20 cars will continue through it and not stop. The people with a green light have to either wreck there car or wait. It is the person that runs a red light after everyone is stopped that gets you. I have seen people drive up on the sidewalk and around the cars stopped at a red light and drive into the intersection and wreck…

All you can do is wonder are they really that bad of drivers?

Russian Video: Blockade of Leningrad Started 68 Years Ago!

Leningrad remembers its Heroes!

Today you could hear sound of metronome and the wail of the sirens in St.Petersburg. Leningrad remembers the Blockade – 900 days and nights of artillery attacks and terrible starvation. A worker got 250 grams of bread a day all others got twice less. Leningrad outstayed but the price was incredible. There were more than 500 000 people buried only on Peskarevsky cemetery…

Sound of metronome is symbol of the Blockade of Leningrad – metronome sounded during the Blockade 24 hours a day on the radio. The siren wailed 3740 times during the blockade.

PS Blockade – the name of the movie made by Sergei Loznitsa. No name of war no name of city what was blockaded. Of course, we all know this movie is about Seige of Leningrad.

After the premiere of “Blockade” at the Rotterdam Film Festival the audience was stunned and did not want to leave the room. ‘Did you know, – an old Dutchman asked Sergey Loznica – that you told the story not only of Leningrad but Rotterdam also? Our city was destroyed, but, unfortunately, there were no operators, who could capture this tragedy.”
