Hinweis der Redaktion

  1. Today we will talk about Russia, but first I want to show you a short video***
  2. Russian flag meaning (white – sky, blue – water, red – beautiful\blood). Anthem is the same as in USSR, but with different lyrics.
  3. In first part I’ll talk about our country in general***About the country
  4. Russian flag meaning (white – sky, blue – water, red – beautiful\blood). Anthem is the same as in USSR, but with different lyrics.
  5. Zelenograd – story behind the flag (Circuit – ‘ Silicon valley of Russia’, Green - forests of ‘Green City’, Red – blood, world war II, Monument - closest point nazi came to Moscow, two stripes - rail road, highway)
  6. There are some symbols, that you’ll find in movies, as a souvenirs etc. I even found Kremlin clock face at a gas station on Western Blvd!*** ---- Kremlin clock face at gas station
  7. Russia is the biggest country in the world, it is bigger than former planet Pluto.Budget of Russia is based on natural resources – oil, gas, etc.
  8. USSR-RUSSIA History is very tough: In a short period of time from 1910-s to 2010-s we experienced many wars and crisises: Monarchy-Communism Revolution, then Civic War, World War II (22 million people died), May 9th, Cold War with USA, Russia – USSR dissolution into 15 countries, privatization, Financial Crisis 1998, Crisis 2008. It affects Russian mentality a lot, cause our parents and grandparents remember and experienced losses. Now all that people want is stability, even if sometimes it’s a stagnation, but we can not blame them. // ABOUT THE PRIVATIZATION: example about the plant at Клюшка.
  9. Moscow is one of the most populous cities in the world. Basically, there are two huge cities in Russia – Moscow and Saint-Petersburg, and the rest of the country, with very different standard of living, politic situation, information awareness, etc.
  11. The weather in Russia is different. It is true that the coldest city (in the World) – Oymyakon, Verkhoyansk located there. Alex lived in the town were winter temperature might be -40, and children skipped school, but go outside to play. But most of the cities including Moscow do have hot green summer. Warmest city (in Russia) – Sochi
  12. Russian alphabet has a lot of common letters with Greek alphabet (that’s why it is funny to “read” fraternity names – like ‘KGB’). Also we have some common letters with Latin alphabet (cause its roots are also from Greek alphabet). Russian alphabet itself is easy to learn and easy to read – you can spell the word letter by letter and anybody will understand you.***863 year+звуки на английском
  13. The only trouble can be a Russian cursive. Children learn it at school and it is still a very important part of the language.***Russian Cursive makes me cry sometimes
  14. Two types of languages (grammars) – sentence vs word.Different parts of the word – prefix, root, suffix, ending – define time, gender, plurality. Yellow blue bus (Я люблю вас,I love you),Horror show (Хорошо,Good)***Curse words – трехэтажный мат, это язык, особенно у военных, которые на нем говорят, есть даже словариRussian Proverbs and Sayings
  15. ***
  16. Russian village usually is a very poor. Farmers; but except it there’s nothing to do, a lot of drinkers, information isolation ***Фермеры живут в своих домах, но в плачевном состоянииНет развлечений – йога единственное
  17. There is another type of houses – dacha. It is different from village. Usually it is seasonal homes that are owned by citizens, usually without regular water\electricity\gas supply, are not used for permanent residence,are visited only during summer or weekends.
  18. Typical City residential areas look the same in different cities. It is skyscrapers, where people live in small flats. We even have a New Year movie called ‘The Irony of fate’ about the guy who got drunk, confused his flight and flight of his friend, and instead of Moscow came to Saint Petersburg, told taxi driver his address and found the same street, same house and didn’t realize he is in the different city.
  19. The infrastructure is also very similar. City is divided into districts. There is a good frequent public transportation system (you just need to go out and wait for the bus, no need to know the schedule). Inside the district there are playgrounds, schools, cinemas, shops, grocery stores – everything is in a walking distance. You always meet people outside. The only problem is a lack of parking.
  20. Flat is usually small (and we count amount of rooms, for example 1-bedroom is 2-room apartment). The interior has some features like carpet on the wall, wallpapers, curtains, chandelier. Russians never wear street shoes inside, there’s always special home slippers. Other features of the flat is balcony, chute on the floor, separate bathroom (usually there’s a combination of bathtub and a shower with height adjustable nozzle).***
  21. But for me the main difference is that in Russia we have central heating system, so we don’t need to think about temperature inside. During the winter it is usually around 77 degrees. Cats absolutely love the radiator. Usually it is hot water that is circulating inside the pipes. And there is no AC.
  22. When I bought insurance, they couldn’t believe we had no car before. But you don’t need it in Russia!
  23. Is constantly built***активно строитсяпро метро:
  24. You can see a lot of tourists taking pictures under ground.
  25. If you will be lucky, you can meet a unique train. For example, this train is called ‘Watercolor’ and is telling you more about painting. Basically, it is train and a gallery. There are other trains – about art, history, literature with quotes, historical events, retro trains.
  26. Despite good transportation system, bad traffic jams, bad roads, lack of parking and expensive cars, some people still do have cars.And most of them have dash cams. Here is the video about it.
  27. Typical lunch and snack. Food is very simple, no spices, no hot food.
  28. *** + Завтраки из разных стран – найти США Россия, потребительская корзина(кефир, ряженка, творог) – cottage cheese сравнение, йогурт сравнение с американским ассортиментом
  29. You can ask for couple slices of each sausage to try.***
  30. *** Pickled tomatoes, Eggplant paste, Squash paste, Pickled mushroomsFish: Шпроты, бычки, сардины, печень трески, икраMeat: ТушенкаOther: Вареная сгущенка
  31. Sunflower oil is used everywhere – for frying, for salads. Buckwheat – most popular side dish, like rice. ***
  32. Also, people stays in one group of people for 4-6 years.
  33. Events
  34. 1924-2014 ALL winter olympics
  35. Each piece of this quilt is a traditional folk art craft from different parts of the country.***
  36. Beading, laces, shawls, box, dalls, etc*** - look of the game
  37. Tray, tableware, embroidery
  38. The main idea of the torch is a phoenix feather, but many people found that it looks like a vodka label.
  39. Ovechkin from NHL started the longest torch relay in the history. Torch goes off, exploded and fired up 106 times (but it is less than 5% of total amount which is considerednormal).***Torch – гас, взрывался и загорался - NHL OvechkinТух 106 раз (less than 5% of total amount is normal)Видео где горит факелLongest relay
  40. Torch was carried by snowboarders, it was on mountain Elbrus – highest in Russia and Europe, and on Avachinsky Volcano.
  41. It was on the bottom of the Worlds deepest lake Baikal
  42. And above the water, carried with the help of jet-backpack.

  60. Easter – color eggs, cook Easter cake, and then bless them in the church with holy water. No chickens and bunnies 
  61. You can try all the products I described earlier – I can send the presentation.
  62. Recipes that are easy to cook in my opinion, and do not require any special ingridients***,
  63. ***Music: you are still searching for true Russian music, here are some ones I may recommend: Древнерусскийраспев – Внизпоматушке, поВолге -Черныйворон -Ой, тонивечер -Ой, данеизтучушки -ЧистыйГолос – Вдоль, дапоречке -ЖиваяСтарина – Всем, всеммальчикбылдоволен - foisted pop music is international and mostly has nothing to do with people of any country.
