The show titled "We are in Russia!" is divided in 13 parts. It started with a chapter called "Azbuka" (an A-B-C book), a style of writing which is different from other alphabets. The viewers heard voices from all parts of Russia: from twinkling Polar Lights over the Arctic Ocean to sub-tropical Sochi; from the hot gazers of the Kamchatka peninsula to the Urals.

A separate part of the show is devoted to the Russian tricolor. The spectators will get acquainted with the Russian Odyssey - a gallery of historical characters who took part in the construction of the Russian state and glorified the great Russia.

The two final parts are called "The Dove of Peace" and "The Olympic Gods". The organizers explain that that a dove occupies an honorary place in the world of symbols, including the Olympic ones. That is why the breath-taking choreography of world famous ballet dancer Diana Vishneva combined with modern technologies will create an inimitable image of a magic dove, which will be replaced by a dynamic installation: a bright combination of two elements - space and sport.

The final scene called "The Olympic Gods" is devoted to the cosmic achievements of Russian athletes where the images of great athletes are associated with the images of great Olympic Gods.

Good morning, I wish you a nice day to all of our radio listeners


Dér István ISI Remény Sokszor gondolok rád, olykor hangodat hallani vélem, De oly messze vagy, gondolataim keresnek téged. Már a tavaszi nap is előbújt, mosolyogva néz rám, Csak néz... és találgatja, hol találok én rád! Lassan már életre kel a lila, mosolygós kis ibolya, Illatát nevetve jókedvében rám ontja. És megkérdezi, ő még mindig messze jár? Elgondolkodik a többi tavaszi virág, ki őrá vár! Mikor a mandula és barackfa ágait virág borítja, És eljön a bodza és akácvirág, gondolatom még ott jár. Oly gyorsan repül az idő, de valamiért mégis megáll, Hosszú-hosszú hónapok telnek el, ha majd előttem állsz! Olykor látni vélem nevető szemed, és hallom kacajod, Mikor lágy, langyos szellő, gondolatban simogatom arcod, Ajkad csak elgondolni tudom, puha édes csókoddal, S gondolatban suhan át, forrón ölelve derekad. Hosszú-hosszú hónapok tán feledve leszek, Még nem tudni, kinek nyújtod majd kezed. Vágyaimat, ha szavaid hallom, éreztetem veled. Mily csodás a telefon, hogy hallod... suttogom neved. Mennyi - mennyi öröm és szerelem vár ránk, Csak maradj nekem e hosszú hónapokon át, Még pompázni fog a tavasz, mikor találkozom veled, Megéred a pillanatot, számunkra mindent jelent. Valentin napra kedvesemhez
