It happens every year in July, 2nd, in Tutaev, the Yaroslavl region.. The miracle working icon was painted in the middle of the 15 century by one famous icon-painter. It is really huge, about 3 meters tall. The full length saviour adorns the
icon. The icon is carried along the city with songs and prayers. People can get through the "healing" hole under the icon on their knees or squatting for a healing prayer. It should be done three times for a healing effect!

A bit about EURO-2012. Soldiers from the President's regiment and the centre of ground forces were brought to the fan-zone in Kiev. They were made to put second-hand clothes on, for some of them only women's clothes remained... Their mission was quite serious -
backup dancing during the performance of one Russian singer... They also had to call out the slogan of the sponsors. Unfortunately they were not allowed to see the football match, were ordered to leave the fan-zone right before it started.
