Christians Tore Madonna Apart

There is a very funny sect of extreme Christians in Russia. They look really cool. They became popular for breaking up a Moscow gay parade this year, together with some radical Orthodox Christian priests.   At that time gay parade was canceled. That included a public speech of Moscow mayor who said something like “Moscow and Russia are not that liberal to allow this to happen”. You can imagine how far Moscow and Russia are liberal after that. Now, from
their point of view, which doesn’t differ from a point of a Russian Orthodox Church officials, Madonna shouldn’t have a concert in September, 2006 in Moscow. She simply doesn’t have any right for that, because from their point of view she is totally evil pop star. They wear black cloths which is a wild mix of German Nazi military cloths with some Russian military elements and a lot of Christian symbolics and items.

Russian Art, Russian Peasants and Modern Day Compilation

Here is a little bit about classical Russian art. Ilya Repin is a well-known Russian artist. His paintings are highly valued all over the world and cost a lot. I want to present you here two of his works and then a creative compilation of both in one painting. This is his famous painting "Burlaks on Volga". Who are Burlaks and what are they doing on Volga? As there was a slavery in United States there was
another type of slavery in Russia till the middle of 19th century, but it was called "Castle law". What does it mean? It means that people could not move away from a castle or from the landlord.

14 Music video of Kazakhstan

Music video of Kazakhstan

After watching this video it is more easy to understand what was the Soviet Union. Different nations were united under one flag and one goal - achieving of the world reign of communism. All those nations studied Russian in school as the main language, in fact all the lesssons were in Russian only. All the govermental system was the same everywhere, in European regions where people look and live like in Western countries and in distant Eastern and Southern regions where people are got used to live like in Afghanistan or Turkey.
But this was all a one country with one people and one language and one capital - Moscow city. This video shows how Western culture can penetrate some not Western by geolocation regions of Russia. Actually this is Kazakhstan already, but former it was a part of USSR, and in modern Russian Federation there are some other regions looking like this. And by the way this video is 100% serious and was used for TV broadcasting across that region. I hope you enjoyed the video
