Russian Circus Legend to Open Cat Temple in Moscow


Famous circus artist Yury Kuklachev, the founder of the Moscow Cat Theater, announced on Monday plans to open an entertainment center in the Russian capital which he called a "cat temple," RIA Novosti reports.

Kuklachev, known for secret methods of training cats, said that the temple, which will be opened in September 2012 at the Cat Theater premises, will combine performances with music and light effects and visits to a special cat garden.

"Everything will make people feel joy and delight because these feelings inspire good deeds," Kuklachev said.

Kuklachev's Cat Theater, founded in 1990, has a company of over 120 cats of 36 breeds, and often makes world tours.

Aviatresses 15.01.2019
For Russian women who pioneered aviation, everything started in 1911. The skies virus used to penetrate their hearts through various paths. In some cases it came along with love. A general’s daughter. A duchess by her husband’s right, who belonged to the Rurik dynasty. A professional actress. A genteel and well educated lady. A princess by birth. An Odessa native with millionaire uncle of Italian origin. And a lady of incomprehensible origin. In the early 20th century such girls and ladies were known as Aviatresses. Though they dubbed themselves as “air wanderesses”.
A large-scale educational event Total Dictation is going to take place on April 13, 2019. Hundreds of thousands of people in Russia and abroad are going to test their literacy. Not everyone knows that Total Dictation has a "younger brother"  - the TruD test. It was created specifically for those who study Russian as a foreign language, bilingual children, their parents and all those who are not yet fluent in Russian. Olga Rebkovets, the head of Total Dictation project, told us about the test and its first results.
