Fabio Capello Plans to Hire Tutor to Learn Russian


20.07.2012

Fabio Capello, who will officially become the Russian football squad’s head coach in the next few days, is planning to start learning Russian, ITAR-TASS reports.
 
According to his agent, Fabio Capello, 66, will permanently reside in Moscow.
 
Fabio who’s known to be a polyglot in the football world wants to hire a tutor who, he hopes, will help him master Russian in just a few months.
 
Capello is expected to sign his contract on Friday. His salary won’t exceed six million euro a year. This figure is much lower than the ones mentioned by various media outlets.

This year marks the 130th anniversary of the birth of Vladimir Zworykin, a famous Russian inventor and the pioneer of television technology. His name was unknown for a long time in Russia. Meanwhile, in the United States, where the inventor lived most of his life, at some point he was under supervision, as the FBI suspected him to be a Russian spy.
The Russian village of Aleksandrovka, an amazing corner of Russian history, has been preserved in one of the districts of Potsdam. The Alexander Nevsky Memorial Church, the oldest surviving Orthodox church in Germany, is located on a mountain nearby. The history behind this village is, first of all, the story of friendship between two royal persons - Frederick William III of Prussia and Alexander I of Russia. Andrei Chernodarov, a historian and cultural expert, told the Russkiy Mir on how this unusual monument came to existence and how it has been preserved.
