Go Help Charity Rally

Real Russia is pleased once again to announce our involvement with the Go Help Charity Rally. Go Help is a UK based charity where volunteers work with local communities in Central Asia and America in improving access to education and healthcare services.


On Sunday, Russian's reached the end of their week long celebrations of 'Maslenitsa' – and begun their Great Lent in Russia. 'Maslenitsa' festival ran from the 24th February to the 2nd March and it is a celebration for Russian’s to say “goodbye” to winter and “hello” to spring. It is celebrated to mark the end of the cold weather, and the start of the warm weather that the spring can bring – It is more commonly known as the Russian Sun Festival, and it signifies hope and growth to all Russian’s.
