A weighty compliment was made to the Russian fans. “The audience was very generous with the standing ovation, and other teams supported,” notes the Los Angeles Times. “They clapped for absolutely everyone.”

The journalists did not ignore the new form of the Russian team, calling it one of the brightest, most impressive and original at the Games. "The evening was crowned by the torch lighting ceremony, which was entrusted to the legendary hockey player Vyacheslav Tretyak and the figure skater Irina Rodnina," writes Los Angeles Times. - Organization of the show exceeded expectations.

As the CBC television company pointed out, "the ceremony was conceived as the glorification of Russia - a country with a rich and complex history, surely reviving after the difficult past two decades and now capable of organizing such major international sports events as the Olympic Games." “It was an amazing demonstration of the history of Russian sports and culture,” added CBC.

“The games in Sochi began with a spectacular festival for athletes and spectators,” the CTV television channel, in turn, noted. According to the newspaper The Ottawa Citizen, "at the ceremony Russia showed itself." “It was emotional, but not sentimental,” continues the publication. “The great power of Russia was shown, its achievements in space, dance, music.

Commentators also appreciated the musical accompaniment of the ceremony and the visual series based on the works of Russian avant-garde artists.

Austrian journalists who characterize the opening ceremony of the Winter Olympics in Sochi as a “splendid journey through the history of the country” and count the approximate costs of organizing it, do not spare words of praise to the favorite of the local opera public - the soloists of the Vienna Opera Anna Netrebko. “Her performance of the Olympic anthem warmed during the cold weather the hearts of many viewers,” notes the Kurier newspaper, recalling that the native of Kuban also has Austrian citizenship.

Then he watched how engineering devices and structures were created, very competently. Of course, you won’t see everything on TV, but you were very impressed, because we could if you want, but you had to do it, it’s the First Winter Palace in Russia.

            Does everyone know that CNN cut the broadcast of the opening ceremony and showed this discovery in the United States on record rather than live?
            Well, aren't you scum?
            They cut out the Soviet past of our country, the chorus of police officers, the words of Bach’s congratulations to Russia and the song Tatu.
            And then they will talk about a totalitarian state, censorship in the media and other democratic heresies.

                Potemkinskie derevni in complete dismay

                The opinion of The Washington Post is sharply discordant with the opinion of Scandinavian journalists. The American newspaper did not find a single kind word for the ceremony, for its organizers, or for Russia as a whole. From the very beginning, the publication takes an extremely aggressive tone: "The colossal ceremony worth $ 51 billion is the fruit of a destructive megalomania, as if it makes us complicit in a sickening crime."

                The entire article is written in such expressions. According to the newspaper, the Olympic Games are "a Potemkin village (American journalists are well aware of the expression the Potemkin village. - Note. RBC), an ingenious facade created to adorn the image of a small, unpleasant, cold-faced man who loves to pose with a naked torso in order to appear above".

              It was an NBC channel, but not the point. The United States cut Yanukovych out of the broadcast of the Olympics “In Russia, viewers saw him, but in Kiev they didn’t. It seems that the whole thing is the policy that the United States is pursuing in Ukraine.
              “Russian television excluded Yanukovych from the broadcast of the Opening of the Olympics” - materials with similar headlines appeared on Ukrainian news sites the next morning after the opening ceremony of the Games in Sochi. Indeed, Ukrainian viewers did not see their president in the broadcast of UT-1 and Inter TV channels during the athletes parade at Fisht Stadium, when the heads of state present greeted the delegations of their countries. Meanwhile, Russian viewers perfectly saw Viktor Yanukovych, cheerfully waving the national flag.
              Where did Viktor Fedorovich go on the TV signal path from Sochi to Kiev?
              “In fact, there were three television signals,” Konstantin Ernst, Channel One General Director, told KP. - Russian national, American national and OBS signal, which went to the whole world. In our version, nothing of the kind could have happened.
              That is, the opening of the Olympics was broadcast in three versions. The first version of the First Channel, which actually engaged in the ceremony, was broadcast to Russia. The second - went to the USA. And the third - from the international copyright holder, commissioned by the IOC, Olympic Broadcasting Services, went to the whole world, including Ukraine. And it was in the version of this television company that instead of Yanukovych, during the passage of the Ukrainian delegation, an empty chair was shown, which, obviously, had been removed in advance.
              - As a professional, say: is this possible? - KP correspondent asked Konstantin Ernst.
              “Well, if on purpose, then anything is possible,” Ernst answered.
              It can be assumed that the reasons for this demarche lie in the fact that American companies, which are the main sponsors of the Olympics, have a great influence on the television world. In any case, such a demarche correlates well with the policy that the United States is pursuing in Ukraine now. ”

      I'm sorry, but it seems to me that you do not understand the true meaning of what happened,

      With a powerful blow called "the opening of the Olympics in Sochi", Russia practically won a major battle called "Winter Olympics 2014" in a geopolitical war with other countries, this is a powerful statement about itself, this is a brick from which the authority and status of the "Russian world" is formed, not without reason In games, Russians are rooting for Ukrainians or Belarusians, I would rather root for a Kazakh than for a German.

      "Russian World" wins VICTORY !!! without war and blood, enchantingly beautiful, with honor and dignity! That is why our enemies, adversaries and competitors, who are not capable of anything like that due to their inner moral essence, run into impotent rage and lies.
      they know and understand that they lost, but even a good mine with a bad game they no longer succeed .......

The entire opening program of the opening was full of activities that are called "art", including the best voices of the world and ballet and musical and lighting design and complex constructive solutions, many of which were used in indoor stadiums for the first time ... I'm not talking about itself the content of the paragram.

          In general, it is impossible to call the opening ceremony "gray" and "mediocre", because, I repeat, a lot was organized for the first time in the world! And this is already getting out of the "gray".

          What do you mean by art? Personally, I relate my understanding to art to literature, art, private needlework, music, etc. The Olympics cannot be art even in their own terms, it’s just a collection of everything that has no value or history. So is the current Olympiad in History will take its rightful place. And it’s just the usual one, like everyone else. The euphoria will pass. Reality will come. That's where we bet.

        So just in case, Evgenia Kanaeva, who came to replace her, won the Olympics twice - in Beijing and London.
        Then it was necessary instead of Rodnina to put it with the Tretyak and put ... why already ... be embarrassed then.
        And where is Smetanina, Reztsova, Vyalbe, Mikhailov, Tikhonov, etc., etc. ?????

          Sergei! hi I hope that if I do not read this opus of mine, I will have more rivals. I’m not offended. Yes, I think it will be like “where you climb, kick old!” There are not so many people on the site who remember the Olympics-80. for those times, it really was a masterpiece. Despite the boycott of many countries, it was carried out in the best style. It was even then called the best. In 2008, the Olympics in China impressed with their clarity and thoughtfulness. In Sochi, thanks to modern technologies, they could have concocted something more knocking. The fact that ours took the medals does not diminish them. They are at home. The first medal was not taken by us. .Of course, Russia filed a protest! How not to scandalize. Try to run 15 km. to take away, when exactly for the last 100 meters there is no longer any strength, what the hell are the rules. The body is no longer yours, Hands and feet work purely on the machine, thanks to training, but, in the brain, only knocks - "faster, faster." Did any of those present on the site run? And what, some athletes were too lazy to shave at the opening? Or is that image? For the sake of interest, sometimes, not more than an hour ago, purely for fun, I ran with young people. 5 km in total. Is the final clear? The nation will die. Nobody has finished 35 minutes. Beside your humble servant. 32. I will not say that we do not like the Olympics. They accept it as inevitable. Why should I personally love her? For the fact that pensions were delayed in January by 15 days in February for a week? Well. Rejoice. The Olympics are not the prestige of the country. Any country that has taken on such a burden is simply obliged to provide everything at the highest level. This is not a panacea. It’s just attracting attention. Although in our case, not simple. My opinion I have the honor. hi

            Exactly ours. Clothes. I would like more. Was it really impossible to create something in a purely Russian, maybe in an old Slavonic style. To be honest, sweatshirts killed me! Hats dream of the best. Music during the passage of ours. "They will not catch us." Isn't it too much? The opponent should be treated with respect. And what we liked, fireworks, passing other teams. Statements about our national team rivals. We only said that we were “ready”, “we will fight”, “we will be able to”. None of the rivals put it that way. They all spoke very loyally. Or does it affect the fact that we are at home?

                Earflaps? I wonder who invented such hats. To knock on the head "to the designer". Reminiscent of "Chinese chinchillas". This "designer of hats" for a couple of days to us, in normal frost, at -25, the design idea will take on a real reality. Well, not against it that today in Sochi + 12, I suggest everyone to wear the so-called "meningitis"! Who will agree on the topic. In Krasnoyarsk there will be a youth Olympiad in the 18th year (if memory does not fail). Come. But you will only be saved from frost What we will advise you. And it’s not very pleasant to collect frozen on the streets. Beer gets cold, but we will have to carry you. Calculate 30 degrees. Not liquid, but air. Plus 98% eternal humidity and "tender" khivus. But Don't worry. We'll warm it. We won't let you freeze.

              It can be seen that the foreigners intervened in the production, not ours, like the AMERICAN cinema with their vision of RUSSIA, clothes were no good, our shows were taught to be up to the mark, and it would be nice not only that.

      When I looked for the first time I thought so too, I will make a reservation immediately distracted, but yesterday I looked again in more detail, I was impressed. I especially remember the time of Peter the Great, when they marched through 2-D graphic squares, and the Soviet era looked especially powerful in red, as much as "goosebumps". Great performance, very impressive. good

    And I was delighted with the Slovak biathlete Kuzmina. It’s not useful to her, we, go, it’s better to eat. And so it turned out fun - our whole pedistal. Somehow you will count a Slovak and a Ukrainian as a foreigner.

      To the point. We watched yesterday. At the enthusiastic cry of the commentator that Kuzmina was running for the second gold, everyone who watched responded with unflattering epithets to those who couldn’t find her a place in the team. Due to the salinity of the expressions, there was not enough beer.

      In 2007, she married an Israeli citizen Daniel Kuzmin (maiden name Shipulina, sister of our biathlete), since 2008 she has been playing for the Slovak national team. It turns out just "I changed my homeland for hell" Something like that. My attitude towards it is negative.
      And who really delighted was the skater Julia Lipnitskaya, a 15-year-old girl who performed just great and made the main contribution to the victory of the team.

        As far as I remember, there was no place in the national team for Kuzmina, so she speaks for Slovakia. Zaitseva also married a foreigner, but she speaks for us. Dasha Domracheva was also not taken to the national team and she left for Belarus. Much depends on the coaches.

          There was such a policy at one time that the team kept "trusted comrades" who, in principle, were about to finish. I'm not a fan of spitting, but Shipulin had to be put instead of the same Bogaliy.
          And so our biathlon lost a lot of frames, unfortunately.

So he said that according to the script, time was given to this period separately, but the IOC asked to cut it out, and "we listened to their opinion"! Two minutes left, then I reviewed it, for sure! Somehow like this!
      But in general there was a difference in broadcast. I watched Russia HD, direct. I liked that there was no advertising, but also comments so-so. When I was reviewing it by 1, then many moments of the script were explained by the hosts! And this is important, as I later saw foreigners had scripts on hand!

Well yes. Only a good product is not cheap. Such a build for such a short period of time, I think not everyone can.
    The psychological impact on our "European partners" is about the same as from the aircraft carrier at hand.

Statements about our national team rivals. We only said that we were “ready”, “we will fight”, “we will be able to”. None of the rivals put it that way. They all spoke very loyally. Or does it affect the fact that we are at home?

    The shape is normal, except that the sheepskin coats are wrinkled, most likely they were taken out of the packaging right before leaving the packages. The oversight, of course, could somehow be prepared, smoothed out. And so normal clothes. Dublenka is just "purely Russian clothes" and is.

    Does everyone know that CNN cut the broadcast of the opening ceremony and showed this discovery in the United States on record rather than live?
    Well, aren't you scum?
    They cut out the Soviet past of our country, the chorus of police officers, the words of Bach’s congratulations to Russia and the song Tatu.
    And then they will talk about a totalitarian state, censorship in the media and other democratic heresies.

    In huge letters all over Sochi, I would put up posters:
    "On a long journey, Russia is back !!!"
    so that all the scum knew that killing Russia is not so simple, almost impossible. Russia has been, is and will be forever.

    As my friend said, “this is our asymmetric and gracefully tactful response to the flow of Russophobia from beyond the hill,” such a revelation of Russia as a great country with a unique history is a very subtle move of our “soft power”. The opening was watched by 3 billion people, which justifies even the significant costs of the Olympics, agree 10 dollars per person cheap to show the beauty and greatness of the country.

    Stumbled upon yesterday "awesome" the film is called "Putin's Games" - "Putin's Games". Guys, have you heard anything about this masterpiece? Brief information: producers - Germany / Israel / Austria, actors are all world-class stars - Boris Nemtsov and Gary Kasparov. Add. Information: 600 pounds were offered to the authors of this documentary not to be released on screens. But no, the picture still came out!
    Immediately so arose in my head, in time he went out laughing... In short, men, if there are such "cinematic" (the best litmus in the World lol) then Our Olympics are held in the best category "12 points on the Beaufort scale - Hurricane", we cheer and keep our fists for Ours!
    PS Talismans are awesome, Polar bear fellow , Bunny fellow и Leopard fellow.

    I will separately note the cool solution with three horses and the sun floating under the dome. It's nice that they didn't "deny" the ancient, pagan motives and mentioned them as the beginning of our history.
    But what I didn’t like was the participation in the video of all the famous and bored "stars" of cinema: Mikhalkov, Bezrukov, etc.

    And yesterday I watched a documentary about the opening ceremony at the First. I was very surprised that they made a big emphasis on internationalism, that this was done in Holland, and this one in the USA, this is in Britain (by the way, the snowflake that didn’t open was made there), and this is what we did. Well, it's over all sorts of professionals from around the world. Honestly, I didn’t think that for some reason they would specifically talk about it. It would be interesting to know your opinion on this matter.

    Everything is cool, except for one "but".
    The fact is that Kostya Ernst, tied the whole production on television (probably this is correct). In the sense that already from several acquaintances and strangers who are accredited to these games, I heard that at the stadium, during the opening, half of the show was not visible, part is not clear and part is conditionally spectacular.
    Those. The production was made specifically for hundreds of millions of viewers, but not for several tens of thousands of direct witnesses.

    And yes. Author deserved plus in karma. smile

    I watched a truly enchanting spectacle made at a very high professional level. Himself, more than 20 years he worked as a sound engineer, traveled all over the USSR from Riga to Khabarovsk, but because I always look at it with prof. points of view. Here, Kostya is an undoubted fellow, as the producer of such a large-scale event.

        Strongly disagree with those who sigh over the uncooked BB2.

        Olympics is an international holiday sports. I can spell P R A Z D N I K.
        No need to interfere here with the grief of our war (and the heroism of our soldiers), which is for everyone except us in a large orchestra. Black PR is obtained. If they had included it, then most Westerners would have perceived this as a gross provocation. And simply, why spoil millions of fans with a holiday that can only be bright and joyful?
        And in this I completely agree with the position of the IOC.

    oddly enough, but even nice to read such reviews from foreign media. Sometimes it even seems that, they say, we are all people - human beings, that we can rejoice in the whole world at one moment on the same occasion. But when you start reading the washington post mongrel, that feeling disappears abruptly. it is a pity that even such things as far from dirty politics as the Olympics fall victim to the next intrigues of a handful of self-righteous "liberals" !!!

    A year after the scandal, Alina was rumored to have given birth to a son - the New York Post became the source of the first gossip about Putin’s relationship with Kabaeva and their common child. It stated that the “first child” Kabaeva called Dmitry - in honor of President Dmitry Medvedev. " The rumor that the athlete has children is the number one mysterious story in Russia; assumptions about her motherhood have been circulating for more than a year. This topic has never been officially raised, but Internet users are constantly discussing it. And this despite the fact that the gymnast gave an interview to the magazine "Big Sport" and said that she had not yet become a mother. “I can say: I don’t have children,” Kabaeva said briefly. But the rumors did not abate, on the contrary, they grew to the suggestion that Putin and Kabaeva had started a family with not one, but with two, three children ... This leitmotif was especially strengthened when the president announced a divorce from his wife. Many believe that now the announcement of the role of the gymnast in his life is only a matter of time. And after the girls noticed the engagement ring on the ring finger during a run with a torch at the opening ceremony of the Olympics in Sochi, the rumors about the wedding gained new strength and are being discussed on the web

    That's what I read on the regnum today

    Yuri Tkachev, editor-in-chief of the Internet edition "Timer"

    My impression of the opening ceremony is best described by the English word "magnificent": grandiose, majestic, luxurious, magnificent. But at the same time, I was surprised and gladdened by the fact that the scriptwriters and directors of the opening ceremony were able to show the world an image of Russia that is completely different from that existing in the mass consciousness. Moreover, this is true both for foreign viewers and - and this is very important! - for residents of Russia itself. Instead of the gloomy monolith, which bared with rockets and muzzles of Kalashnikovs, we were shown a country of the highest culture and powerful science. Perhaps for the first time in many years, we realized that the glory of Russia is not only Suvorov and Zhukov, not only Peter I and Catherine the Great, not only Pushkin and Dostoevsky, who were bronze to the point of losing their own face. We were forced to remember that Russia is the country of Tchaikovsky, Borodin and Rachmaninoff, Malevich and Kandinsky, Mendeleev and Korolev. This is a country that you can be proud of and that you can truly love.

    A very important point: they showed us a show of a qualitatively different level than much of what is happening in Russia in the field of public events. And I’m not even talking about the highest technological level (and he really impressed!), But about the creative component, the work of directors, directors, and performers. The opening of the Olympics set a fundamentally new level in the cultural sphere, and if in the future Russia will try to keep this plan, it is the field of culture and art in Russia that will reach a qualitatively new level.

    As for the reaction of the spiteful critics, including the Ukrainian ones, I personally understand it completely. In a few hours, many myths about today's Russia were broken, which were created over the centuries and which really constituted the core of the worldview for a significant part of the Ukrainian public. Left without this rod, like a snake with a broken spine, they are no longer able to make any meaningful movements, but can only writhe in pain and make senseless and merciless remarks, full of anger and discrediting not only the opening ceremony, but themselves.

      Of course, before the western man in the street "saw" Russia, in the reports presented to him, in the person of the depressed, drunken oligarchs and our "star" public (elite), and then suddenly a completely different picture - a friendly people without bloody fangs and vodka, and no bears (well, if only dogs lured by builders). This Olympiad should radically change the idea of ​​Russia, among ordinary residents of Western Europe and the world in general, in a positive direction, but politicians, for that they are politicians, are not for nothing considered one of the "ancient professions".
