"This is one of the best sand animation performances I have ever seen. It conveys a lot of emotion and can bring you to tears. Definitely a must watch !"

"Kseniya Simonova is a 24 year old artist. She first started making these type of drawings in 2008 on the beach and eventually it all progressed to this. All after the jump, you won’t regret it…"

The Great Patriotic War is a very emotional topic for citizens of the former USSR considering they lost about 27 million Soviet citizens fighting the Nazis. This story portrays personal loss and reflects the individual experiences of people during the war of which there were millions.

Also, I must admit i’ve always liked the Soviet anthem.

Interesting fact, this artist is a Russian from Crimea…which is currently annexed by Russia.

Pussy riot attacked at Mcdonalds

Very upsetting to see something like this. I think they were discussing prison reform as that’s their new cause since being released from prison. These men, in a clearly organized assault, decided to throw acid on them and appear to use scissors at one point. I bet they haven’t even been apprehended even though their faces are clearly shown in the video.
