Nu Pogodi (Just You Wait!). Remix video with Russian pop standards

Filed under: animation,humourous,Pop music,Russian,Soviet period,Video — 01varvara @ 00.00

Nu Pogodi (Just You Wait!) was a popular Soviet-era cartoon series. Here, old clips from the series are matched with Russian pop/rock standards. I think that this is the Russian equivalent of the Road Runner and the Coyote… and my Nicky agrees with me!

Serbia: Russia Loves You!

Russians and Serbians have always been allies and friends. We are united by our common Orthodox Faith, and there is no Russian alive who does not support our Serbian kin without reservation. Kosovo je Srbija!

Kolokolny Zvon (The Voice of the Bells) Zhanna Bichevskaya

Zhanna Bichevskaya sings one of the contemporary Orthodox spiritual songs of Hieromonk Roman. The backdrop is a photomontage focusing on the life of All-Merciful Saviour Monastery on Vashon Island in Washington in the Pacific Northwest US.

One can see that we have kept the traditions of the rodina alive, and that the pictures could have been taken at any given monastery in the homeland. Our monasteries are an important part of the life of Orthodox Christians. We faithful often go on otpust to monasteries (although I have never been to this particular house) and they are a source of great spiritual vitality to us.

To the brotherhood of All-Merciful Saviour Monastery, many years! na mnogaya lyeta! Their website (well worth a visit) is:
