Video about Russia and events in Russia 19-25 August 2013.

In addition to the comparison between the topics in the Russian and the international press, here is some of the most watched videos from or about events in Russia during the week 19-25 August 2013.

The most viewed video about Russia on YouTube is about how a Russian Navy hovercraft of the Zubr-class (Project 1232.2 class, NATO reporting name “Pomornik”) is landing on a, supposedly, military only, beach in the Kaliningrad enclave by the Baltic Sea. The perspective of the video makes it look more dangerous than it is in reality. In fact, it reminds me about some the situations I experienced during my time in the Swedish Navy when we had to make our way between swimming people and leisure boats inside protected areas in the Swedish archipelago.

The second video is from RT’s Channel and shows the uncut version of their Manning report which was hijacked by an US Gay activist (actually I was wrong when I said in this post that RT had taken that part out).

The alleged gas-attacks in Syria was a hot topic this week. Who was responsible for them? In this first video, the narrator is blaming the rebels for staging the event while the next video presents the “western” version.

What would any video compilation be without the inclusion of a cat-video? This Russian cat really takes care of his friend’s arm.

Finally a compilation of the most crazy videos made by Russians about other (crazy?) Russians. Just wonder if the guy survived the failed parahcute jump?
