Performing Arts Camp – The Best Sleepaway Summer Camps and Teen Programs
PERFORMING & VISUAL ARTS PROGRAMS
Every child is gifted. And it is important to help our children nurture their gifts as parents. If your child is gifted in singing, acting, or performing, we are here for you. A performing and visual arts camp is where your child should be enrolled for the summer. Performing arts summer camps are centered around developing a child’s talents.
The Performing Arts Camp programs work to motivate and inspire children and teenagers to perfect their passions and gifts. Through the coaches and the performing arts activities, each camper works to improve their talents during the summer camp.
For children interested in visual arts campers they look forward to sharpening their skills in:
For our young performers, their talents are developed through coaching in:
• Set designing
• Staging and so much more
The performing and visual art camp programs are facilitated by professional artists and actors. The summer camps employ classes, workshops, and practicals as the main modes of teaching. Campers also get individual time with the coaches as a way to build on their individual gifts. It is through this kind of teaching that we believe we enable the raising of the next generation of performers.
In every activity, the children are encouraged to express themselves and explore their creativity. Throughout the summer camp period, campers also have opportunities to showcase their talents to audiences every so often. We believe this to be the perfect way to build their confidence as well as feel appreciated.
During the summer camp, your young artists learn to work with various mediums such as gouache, clay, oil paint, charcoal, and watercolor. The campers interested in performing arts will how to employ new techniques in plays and recitals. As well as designing costumes, handling lighting and so much more. At the end of the summer, the skills acquired will surely stand out.
The performing and visual arts programs offered in our summer camps create a safe environment for children to discover more about their gifts. Interacting with like-minded campers provides the opportunity for your child’s passion to grow. And maybe pick up a new interest. But most of all we also provide the opportunity for your child to be seen by scouts in various fields. The door to their future could just be with us.
We also offer Magic camps, Music camps, Circus camps and Dance camps. For more information, our advisors at the Camp Experts and Teen Summers can be of great help. Whatever your child is interested in we will find the perfect summer camp for them.
Acting Summer Camps for Teens
Learn the Craft of Acting for Film
We are now accepting applications for online After-School and Weekend Workshops. Click here to learn more.
Many high school students will get the theater bug at some point and act in their school’s musicals and plays. At the New York Film Academy’s Teen Acting for Film Camps, we aim to harness that excitement and energy for the stage and help young aspiring actors to make the transition to the screen.
Whether a student has theatre acting experience, performed in a few short films with friends, or simply is taken by the dream of becoming an actor, our acting summer camps offers many possibilities to deepen your training and ultimately, to help guide you towards your dreams!
Acting Camps at NYFA
In the New York Film Academy Acting for Film camps, students are immersed in an intensive, professional educational experience, combining fun, experiential, interactive classes with direct, hands-on acting in front of the camera. Depending on your particular goals and experience, we likely have the perfect match for you.
Offering everything from 2-Day, Weekend, and 1-Week camps to full-time 3 and 4-Week Acting and Acting II camps year-round, it’s our goal at NYFA to help you get exactly what you want out of your acting camp experience.
Regardless of which camp a student enrolls in, each graduates with a digital reel of his or her recorded work on screen to show to friends and bring to auditions along with a certificate of completion to demonstrate the student’s considerable accomplishment.
At the New York Film Academy, we believe in building a strong foundation in the craft of acting. While many of our foundation courses can be applied to any performance experience, what sets the New York Film Academy’s summer camps apart is that students get the opportunity to perform what they learn on camera. Not surprisingly, many of our acting camp graduates have gone on to be cast in starring roles in film and television (including “Glee,” “The Middle,” “Parks and Recreation”; the feature film, “This Must Be the Place” with Sean Penn, and “The Knick,” just to name a few).
The Film Academy’s Acting for Film camps thus provide a safe, focused environment where students are alternately pushed and encouraged to polish their craft. Our short-term programs are ideal for those high school students still exploring the possibilities of acting as a career. Our more advanced workshops give those committed students a chance to take their craft a step further. Many of our acting classes collaborate closely with our film and digital programs, so that students may audition and be cast in student work.
Below is a sampling of some of the classes those in the summer acting camps for teens can expect to take.
Working on scenes from published plays and screenplays allows actors to learn all of the basic concepts of approaching a scene: defining objectives, breaking the scene down into beats, understanding the arc, pursuing an objective, playing actions, and working to overcome obstacles.
ACTING FOR FILM
Students learn the basics of film acting and are assigned scenes, which are then worked on in front of the camera. Students in the 3, 4, & 6-Week camps will receive an edited version of their scene at the end of their program.
VOICE & MOVEMENT
Students gain insight into the power of their voices and learn how to nurture and control their voices by exercising various resonators and muscles, which enables them to release emotional impulses. Students will focus on breaking down inhibitions, building ensemble spirit, and providing the necessary tools to bring physical dimension to all of their roles.
Through games and exercises, students learn how to let their imaginations run free, how to play well with others, and how to live “in the moment”—free from anticipating or planning what to do next.
Screenplays oftentimes incorporate monologues into their dramatic structures, but more importantly actors must learn the self-discipline to work individually, without relying on a scene partner for inspiration.
(3, 4, & 6-Week Camps only)
We provide all of our acting students with master classes taught by the NYFA Filmmaking faculty who give a broad outline of the mechanics, language, and production of film.
This class focuses on making strong acting choices with little or no preparation as well as bringing your “best self” to the audition room.
Our Online Acting Workshops are designed to help teens develop the skills needed to compete in the contemporary world of acting. They are interactive, creative programs consisting of three modules. Students may enroll in all three modules or select to complete individual modules (students are not required to complete one module to attend the next).
For more information on Online Acting Workshops for Teens, including tuition and dates, click here.
The New York Film Academy acting summer camps are especially diverse, attracting students from all over the world. We welcome high school students who thrive on collaborative work and who are willing to explore the acting craft in deep and personal ways. Whether you’re looking to develop your talent; to build skills that will help land you professional work; to develop a portfolio for college entrance; to just explore the possibilities of acting as a career—our acting camps for teens will offer something for you!

Young Film Academy – Residential Filmmaking and Screen Acting Summer Camp
For young people who love films, whether it’s creating them or acting in them, YFA’s all-inclusive Summer Camp is a dream come true: a chance to eat, sleep and breathe movies! The camp is held at Culford School, one of the UK’s leading boarding schools, and includes all board, meals, tuition, excursions, equipment and activities.
Students on YFA Summer Camp will divide into 2 crews: FILMMAKING CREW (for aspiring filmmakers) & ACTING CREW (for aspiring actors). Students choose which Crew they wish to join for the duration of their camp.
Each Crew will develop specialised skills in their own disciplines through practical exercises, workshops and masterclasses with film industry professionals. And because we passionately believe that the best way to learn to is to get out there and DO it, the Filmmaking and Acting Crews will then combine in teams to work together for the production of the movies.
Each week of YFA Summer Camp culminates in a Premiere Screening of all the completed movies for friends and family in the onsite cinema. There’ll be a packed house, behind-the-scenes special features telling the real story of how that movie got made, and we’re guessing some blooper-reels too…
When students aren’t on set, there’ll be oodles of great fun indoor and outdoor activities on offer for them to enjoy, including swimming, football, tennis, table tennis, basketball, dance, drama, film screenings, movie quizzes, talent show, excursions, competitions, games and more!
YFA summer camp offers courses in both filmmaking and screen acting, participants can choose to do one discipline or one of each across two weeks. The filmmaking course is structured with classes and pre-production planning in the first half of the course, moving on to shooting their movies and editing towards the end of the week. On our screen acting course, we will begin again with classes and workshops, shooting days and then rehearsals for a fabulous talent show on the final night of their stay at camp.
English lessons are available at an extra cost and take place during the time allocated for activities outside of teaching hours.

Each prisoner of war during his interrogation is obliged to provide only his surname, name and rank, date of birth and personal number or, in the absence of such, other equivalent information.
In the event that a prisoner of war knowingly violates this rule, he may be threatened with a limitation of the advantages provided to the prisoner of war by his rank or position.
Each party to the conflict is obliged to provide an identity card indicating the surname, first name, rank, personal number or equivalent information and date of birth to any person subject to its jurisdiction and who may be a prisoner of war.This identity document may, in addition, be signed or fingerprinted by the holder, or both, and may contain any other information that a party to the conflict wishes to add in relation to persons belonging to its own military forces. The identity card should, if possible, be 6.5 x 10 cm in size and must have a duplicate. A prisoner of war is obliged to present an identity document at any request, but it can in no case be taken from him.
No physical or mental torture or any other coercive measure may be applied to prisoners of war to obtain any information from them. Prisoners of war who refuse to answer may not be threatened, insulted, or harassed or restrained in any way.
Prisoners of war who cannot give information about their identity due to their physical or mental condition will be transferred to the care of the medical service.The identity of these prisoners of war will be established by all possible means, taking into account the provisions of the previous paragraph.
The interrogation of prisoners of war must be carried out in a language that they understand.
All things and items of personal use, with the exception of weapons, horses, military equipment and military documents, will remain in the possession of prisoners of war, as well as metal helmets, gas masks and similar items issued to them for their personal protection.They will also have things and items that serve for their uniforms and food, even if these things and items belong to the official military equipment.
Prisoners of war must never be left without identification. The Detaining Power issues certificates to those who do not have them.
Insignia and nationality, insignia and items that have mainly subjective value cannot be taken from a prisoner of war.
The sums of money held by prisoners of war can be taken away from them only by order of an officer and only after the size of these sums and data on their owners are registered in a special register, and the latter will be issued a detailed receipt on which the name will be legibly written , rank and military unit of the person who issued this receipt. Sums of money in the currency of the Detaining Power, or those exchanged for that currency at the request of the prisoners of war, shall be credited to the personal account of the prisoner of war in accordance with Article 64.
The Detaining Power may only confiscate valuables from prisoners of war for security reasons. In such cases, the same procedure is followed as for the withdrawal of funds.
The said things, as well as the selected sums of money, if they were in a different currency than the currency of the Detaining Power, and no request was received from the owners for their exchange, must be kept by the Detaining Power and will be returned to the prisoners of war at the end of their captivity. the form in which they were selected.
As soon as possible after their capture, prisoners of war are evacuated to camps located far enough from the war zone to be safe.
Only those prisoners of war who, due to their injuries or illness, are at greater risk during evacuation than when left in place, may be temporarily detained in the danger zone.
Prisoners of war should not be unnecessarily endangered pending their evacuation from a war zone.
The evacuation of prisoners of war must at all times be carried out humanely and under conditions similar to those provided by the Detaining Power to its troops during their movements.
The Detaining Power shall supply the evacuated prisoners of war with drinking water and food in sufficient quantities, as well as provide them with the necessary clothing and medical care. She will take all necessary precautions to ensure their safety during the evacuation and draw up a list of prisoners of war to be evacuated as soon as possible.
If prisoners of war are to pass through transit camps during evacuation, their stay in these camps may be shorter.
The Detaining Power may subject prisoners of war to internment. She can oblige them not to go beyond the established line of the camp in which they are interned, or, if the camp is surrounded by a fence, not to go beyond this fence.
Except as provided for in the penal and disciplinary provisions of this Convention, prisoners of war may not be kept locked or deprived of the right to leave, unless this is necessary to protect their health; in any case, the application of this measure is allowed only as long as the circumstances that caused it have not disappeared.
Prisoners of war may be granted limited or complete freedom on parole or obligation, if only permitted by the laws of the power to which they are listed.This measure will be applied, in particular, in cases where it can improve the health of prisoners. Prisoners should not be forced to agree to their release on parole or commitment.
When hostilities begin, each party to the conflict will communicate to the opposing party the laws and regulations that permit or prohibit its citizens to consent to their release on parole or obligation. Prisoners of war released on parole or obligation in accordance with the laws and regulations thus communicated are obliged, by their personal honor, to precisely fulfill their obligations, both in relation to the Power to which they are listed and to the Power that took them prisoner.In such cases, the Power to which they are credited must not demand or accept from them any services that are contrary to their given word or obligation.

How to get a child to a children’s camp. In Orange
Gathering for a children’s camp is like solving a difficult math problem.
- What things will be enough?
- How to pack everything you need in a small travel bag?
- What the child can do without, and what will he just need during the rest?
Knowledge and logic will help us answer these difficult questions.
Everything here, of course, depends on the duration of the shift, the time of year and the region where the child goes to rest.
Nevertheless, jacket (warm winter or light summer) is always needed! The weather is a wayward young lady, so even in the hottest country she can bring surprises. It is best to choose a waterproof jacket and MANDATORY with a hood . In case of unforeseen rain or loss of a hat (a very common occurrence), the hood will be able to somehow protect against bad weather.
In the cold season, pairs of waterproof warm trousers are useful for walking and playing outdoors.
The minimum quantity of all other clothing is one piece: trousers / jeans, skirt, warm jacket, long-sleeved T-shirt, short-sleeved T-shirt, dress / sundress, shorts. However, you should always remember that active games on the street and clean clothes are not compatible phenomena. Therefore, ideally, a child should have 2-3 changes of each item of clothing in order to ensure the opportunity to give something to the wash.
Age and skills of independence play a big role here.
Washed socks , panties and small items in the large camp laundry can be lost forever. And not all children are accustomed to self-washing.
In this regard, a stock of underwear at the rate of 1 pair for 1-2 days is an ideal option.
In addition, I advise you to bring your child with you a special zippered mesh . It won’t take up much space in your suitcase, but it will increase the likelihood that all socks from the laundry (if you did have to use it) will return with their pair.
Don’t forget the sleepwear . Let it be cozy pajamas with your favorite hero, or just a separate T-shirt or T-shirt.
Before leaving for the health camp, you must make sure that the child remembers that dirty and clean linen should be stored in separate bags!
Outdoor and indoor shoes is a mandatory minimum.
In summer, sneakers (for sports and active games) and sandals / sandals for quiet walks will be enough on the street.
In cold and rainy weather, make sure your baby’s shoes are warm and 100% waterproof or ultra-fast-drying. Otherwise, you will have to bring 2 pairs of outdoor shoes with you.
Don’t forget the rubber shower slippers (and beach).Otherwise, the child will try to go to the shower in fluffy slippers or sneakers.
A child’s headgear should be with him during any holidays. In summer – for protection from the sun, in winter – from bad weather and colds. It is very important here that the child himself likes him. Otherwise, dozens of reasons will be invented not to wear it, up to “accidental” loss.
In cold weather, a scarf and mittens / gloves are also needed.The latter are better with a margin.
Discos and festive events are an integral part of the program of any children’s camp. Let the child have the opportunity to show off a little or feel the atmosphere of the holiday.
Personal hygiene products
Standard set – toothbrush and toothpaste, comb, soap or shower gel, shampoo, washcloth (quick-drying), toilet paper roll .All supplements depend on your child’s habits and needs.
Many camps for children provide their towels , so there is no need to take it with you (this question can be clarified when purchasing a voucher). If this is not practiced in the camp, it is better to give at least 3 towels: a large bath and 2 smaller ones for the face and legs.
Medicines are a delicate thing. With you, the child can only be given medicines of vital importance (for example, in the case of asthma).
It is better to give all other medicines to counselors or doctors who will monitor the timely intake and limit other children from free access to medicines.
It is also better to keep with the counselors. They will most likely be able to control the child’s expenses, as well as prevent such an unpleasant thing as loss or loss.
The main question that always arises before parents is “How much money to give with you?”
Everything is also individual here.If the trip includes additional paid excursions, then decide with the child in advance where he would like to go, and issue a certain amount. Plus souvenirs.
If there is a cafe on the territory of the children’s camp or trips to a nearby store are planned, give out an amount sufficient to buy a small amount of your favorite treats.
In general, for many children, the very fact of having money is important, rather than their amount. Let the child have enough money to buy something, while the amount of money should not cause strong envy of other children.This can lead to unpleasant consequences.
When deciding whether to give any equipment to a child in the camp, remember two things:
- The camp staff is not responsible for the loss of valuables.
- Game consoles, players, telephones, etc. most often they replace the child with live communication with children and interfere with him in the classroom, during games or at night.
Most children are accustomed to a certain type of leisure: individual computer games, social networks, listening to music.The camp provides them with the opportunity to participate in completely different processes, which involve live interaction, building relationships “here and now.” Unfortunately, access to familiar phones or game consoles is distracting and addictive to the child. And the teacher’s attempt to switch his attention to what is happening around causes only irritation and anger.
In any case, the decision remains with the parents.
In addition, you can give your child a favorite toy, book, sketchbook, pens with you.In general, something that will allow him from the first days to feel more or less comfortable in new conditions, and also give him the opportunity to realize his hobbies, if any.
It is good if the child has his own cup with a handle (made of non-heating material).
Knives, scissors, gas cartridges, toys, or objects with sharp iron edges are dangerous and highly undesirable.
And finally, a couple of tips
When packing your suitcase, do not forget to show your child that is located.Upon arrival at the camp, children do not always know what they have with them and how their things look like if their parents pack their suitcase themselves.
And if possible – sign the child’s things . Then there is a high probability that your “loss” will return to you.

90,000 Defector on North Korea: The regime lives on terror, drugs and weapons
- Laura Beeker
- BBC, Seoul
Kim Kook Song has reached top positions in 30 years in the DPRK special services
Kim Kuk Sung’s habit of secrecy is deep in his blood.It took several weeks to arrange an interview with North Korea’s most senior defector. The former colonel immediately asked who had come with me, and never took off his glasses in front of the TV camera. Only two people on our team knew his real name.
Kim Kuk Sung has lived the last 30 years in an atmosphere of deep secrecy, working for North Korean intelligence – “the eyes, ears and brain of the Supreme Leader,” as he calls it.
He says that he guarded the secrets of the regime, sent assassins to its critics and set up a drug laboratory to raise money “for the cause of the revolution.”
And so the former senior colonel [military rank in China, Vietnam and the DPRK, as well as in Argentina and Morocco] decided to tell his story to the BBC. This is the first time in history that a senior North Korean military man has been interviewed by a leading media outlet.
I was “redder”, he says about himself. Loyal servant of the communist government.
But in the DPRK, neither high rank nor unconditional loyalty to the authorities guarantee security.
Kim Kook Sung – let’s call him that – fled in 2014 to save his life, and has since lived in Seoul, where he collaborates with South Korean intelligence.
According to him, the North Korean elite is desperate for money and makes money in all ways – from drug trafficking to arms sales to the Middle East and Africa.
He also talked about how decisions are made in Pyongyang, about the regime’s attacks on South Korea, and how North Korean undercover espionage and hacking have infiltrated all over the world.
The BBC cannot independently verify his words, but we know his real name and, where possible, we have found confirmation of it from other sources.
We contacted the DPRK embassy in London and its mission to the United Nations in New York for comments, but received no response.
In the last years of his service, Kim Kuk Sung watched from the inside the early stages of Kim Jong-un’s formation as head of the DPRK. According to him, the young man always tried to show himself as a “warrior”.
In 2009, just after the father of the current leader, Kim Jong-il, suffered a stroke and Kim Jong-un became his recognized successor, a new special service was created – the General Intelligence Bureau.Kim Yong Chol was appointed its chief, and to this day remains one of the most trusted people in the ruling family.
The former colonel said that in May 2009, an order came from above to create a group of liquidators to secretly assassinate government official Hwang Zhang Yep who had fled to the South.
According to him, the heir tried to demonstrate his determination and make a gift to his sick father. “I personally oversaw this assignment,” he said.

The late Kim Jong Il (left) and his heir Kim Jong Un
Hwang Jang Yep was once the architect of all DPRK politics and one of the first persons in the state.The Kim family never forgave him for his escape in 1997. While living in Seoul, he sharply criticized the North Korean regime.
The attempt failed. The two North Korean majors to whom it was entrusted are still serving sentences in a South Korean prison. Official Pyongyang always claimed that it had nothing to do with it, and called the incident a South Korean provocation.
Kim Kook Sung now confirms that his former bosses were behind the assassination attempt.
“Terrorism has been and remains in North Korea an instrument of politics and the protection of the highest dignity of Kim Jong Il and Kim Jong Un,” he says.
Further – more. On March 26, 2010, the South Korean Navy corvette Cheonan was sunk in the Yellow Sea by a torpedo, killing 46 sailors. Pyongyang said it had nothing to do with this.
On November 23 of the same year, several dozen artillery shells hit the South Korean island of Yongpyeong. Two Marines and two civilians were killed, 16 soldiers and three civilians were injured.
In this case, it was impossible to hide the involvement of the DPRK, but disputes about who exactly gave the order continues to this day.
According to Kim Kuk Sung, he was not directly involved in these matters, but the staff of the General Bureau were proud of them and bragged about them.
Such things could not have happened without sanction from the very top, he is sure.
“In North Korea, one cannot even build a road without the personal approval of the Supreme Leader. And the sinking of the Cheonan and the shelling of Yongpyeong are definitely not the decisions that any of the subordinates could have taken. Such operations are planned and carried out only by special order of Kim. Jong-un and are viewed as an accomplishment of performers, “said the high-ranking defector.
Spy in the Blue House
According to Kim Kuk Sung, he was involved in developing a strategy towards South Korea, the goal of which was defined as “political subordination.”
Naturally, this implied the need to have eyes and ears there.
“In many cases I sent spies to the South and carried out certain operations through them,” our interlocutor stated.
He did not elaborate on the nature of these assignments, but gave one impressive example.
“In the early 1990s, there was a case where a North Korean agent infiltrated the Blue House [residence and office of the President of South Korea], worked there for five or six years, and then returned safely and got a position in the 314th Liaison Office of the Labor Party. Korea [codename for the computer intelligence unit], “he said.
“I can assure you that North Korean agents have infiltrated South Korean government institutions and civil society organizations extensively,” he said.

Supreme Leader of the DPRK Kim Jong-un. According to Kim Kuk Sung, all the money in the country is his property.
The BBC has no way of verifying this claim, but I have seen exposed North Korean spies, and the founder of North Korea News, Chad O’Carroll, recently wrote that there are dozens of them in South Korean prisons.
According to North Korea News, they continue to be arrested periodically.Another agent, sent from the North, was recently detained. But since 2017, there have been fewer such cases. It is likely that North Korean intelligence has partially switched to high-tech methods of gathering information.
Army of hackers
The DPRK is one of the poorest and isolated countries from the world, but previous defectors assured that Pyongyang was not stingy in creating an entire army of about 6 thousand skilled hackers.
According to Kim Kuk Sung, the father of the current ruler, Kim Jong Il, gave the order back in the 1980s to start training personnel and “prepare for cyber war.”
“Moranbong University has begun to recruit the brightest young people from all over the country and train them for six years,” he says.
According to British intelligence analysts, the sensational computer attacks on Sony Pictures in 2014 and on the National Health Service and other organizations of the United Kingdom in 2017 were carried out by North Korean hackers known as the “Lazarus Group”, which was directed by the 314th office.
“Between ourselves, we called it ‘Kim Jong-un’s information center,'” said Kim Kuk Sung, adding that the head of the conspiracy department has a direct telephone line with the Supreme Leader.
“I heard that the employees of the 314th office, in addition to the territory of the DPRK, work from China, Russia and the countries of Southeast Asia. Their duties also include maintaining and ensuring the security of communication with North Korean overseas agents,” he said.
Methamphetamine for dollars
Then Kim Kuk Sung was instructed to create a secret monetary “revolutionary fund” through the sale of drugs.
“North Korea’s drug production peaked during the” hard march “period.Having received the assignment, I brought three foreign specialists to the country and with their help set up a laboratory for the manufacture of methamphetamine on the territory of the training camp, code-named “715th Liaison Office”. The dollars earned were considered a personal gift to Kim Jong-un, “he told us.
The story looks believable. North Korea has a long history of heroin and opium production. The Freedom Forum in Oslo, in his country, drug exports are organized by the state.
I ask Kim Kuk Sung, where did the proceeds go? Did the common people get it?
“To make it clear, all the money in North Korea belongs to the Supreme Leader,” the former intelligence officer replied. “He uses it to build villas, buy overseas cars, delicacies, clothes and luxury goods.”
According to various sources, during the years of the “difficult campaign” in the DPRK, from several thousand to a million people died of starvation.

Another source of income, according to Kim, was illegal sale of weapons to Iran.
“These were primarily mini-submarines and special-purpose submarines. North Korea has made great strides in creating them,” he said.
Here my interlocutor may have exaggerated, since North Korean submarines are equipped with old noisy engines.
However, he argued that the trade was very successful. One North Korean intelligence official in Iran boasted to him that he was negotiating with partners in his basin, he said.
One of the world’s leading experts on North Korea, Russian professor Andrei Lankov, who works at Seoul Kunming University, notes that arms deals between North Korea and Iran have not been a special secret since the 1980s, including even the supply of ballistic missiles to Tehran.
Despite strict international sanctions, Pyongyang continues to develop weapons of mass destruction. In September of this year, he tested four systems: a long-range cruise missile, a rail-based ballistic missile, a hypersonic missile, and an anti-aircraft missile.North Korean military technology is becoming more sophisticated.
According to Kim Kuk Son, Pyongyang sold weapons and military technology not only to Iran, but also to other states under sanctions or where there were protracted civil wars. In recent years, the UN has named Syria, Myanmar, Libya and Sudan in this context.
Resentment of a faithful servant
In his homeland, Kim Kook Son belonged to a privileged elite, used a Mercedes that belonged to Kim Jong-un’s aunt, and traveled abroad without any restrictions, selling rare metals and coal and bringing cash in his suitcase.
By the standards of a country where millions are undernourished, he led a fabulous existence.
The connections in the highest circles, acquired by him through a successful marriage, allowed him to move with a promotion from one special service to another. But these same connections once became dangerous.
Shortly after coming to power in 2011, Kim Jong-un decided to get rid of everyone he considered dangerous, including his uncle Jang Song-Taek, who, according to experts, actually ruled the country during the last years of Kim Jong-il’s life.The state media mentioned him more often than the heir.
“I felt that Jang Sung Taek would not last long, but I thought that he would be sent to the village,” says Kim Kook Sung.

Unexpectedly for everyone, the execution was announced in December yesterday as yet an omnipotent ruler.
“To say that I was amazed is to say nothing,” said Kim Kook Sung.- It was a fatal blow, I was horrified. It became clear that I was in danger and that North Korea had turned into a place where it was impossible to live. ” his family.
“Leaving the country where my ancestors were buried and moving to South Korea, which has always remained a stranger to me, was a great grief and stress,” he says.
Even through his dark glasses I could see that it was hard for him this memory is given.
“Not one hundredth of a percent”
We met several times and spent many hours together. I asked why he decided to speak now.
“This is my last duty,” he replied. “I want to help my brothers in the North get rid of the dictatorship and taste freedom.”
More than 30 thousand North Korean defectors live in South Korea, but only a few dare to speak to the media. The higher a person was in a previous life, the greater the risk.
In addition, some South Koreans have doubts about their stories, which cannot be verified.
Kim Kook Sung lived an extraordinary life. Its history offers a rare insight into the North Korean regime and how it ensures its survival.
“The entire political culture of North Korea, their judgments about everything, their way of thinking are entirely based on unconditional obedience to the Supreme Leader,” he says. “Over the generations, what is called a” devoted heart “is developed there.
Our interview took place at a remarkable moment. Kim Jong-un said that he was ready to return to negotiations with the South in the near future if certain conditions were met.
Noh Kim Kook Sung is skeptical.
“In the years that I have lived here, North Korea has not changed at all,” he says.

Then Edmond decides to start the search himself, but there are many versions, but no leads.Gone is an English-language remake of the 2017 French film My Son. Both paintings were created in an interesting way of the so-called organized improvisation. The essence of the method is that the plot and script are concealed from the leading actor. That is, before filming, McAvoy knew only that he was playing a man whose son was missing. And throughout the work he constantly improvised. In other words, his Edmond’s behavior is a real-time reaction. “I really had no idea what kind of movie I was going to be shooting in: would it be related to the criminal schemes behind the lost children cases; or maybe we would find ourselves in a world of bureaucracy, offices, negotiations and appeals.Or we will go to the other extreme – as in the movie “Hostage” with Liam Neeson.

Lera’s story is that the soul, in spite of everything, strives for light and will always seek it. ” And also “Gerda” is partly a fairy tale, a modern interpretation of the myth about Psyche, which is looking for a way out of the framework and everyday life.

Kudryashova chose a meditative narrative for the film, in which she plays on contrasts: innocent Lera and a strip club, gray high-rise buildings and bright neon scenes.And also “Gerda” is partly a fairy tale, a modern interpretation of the myth of Psyche, which is looking for a way out of the framework and routine.

“We aimed to combine the genres of epic melodrama and adventure film against the backdrop of the construction of one of the most famous landmarks in the world,” says director Martin Bourboulon.
According to the creators, it was the novel of Gustave and Adrienne that inspired him to create an openwork tower, which became a symbol of Paris and romance.
The picture cannot be called a biopic in the literal sense of the word, although the creators studied the biography of Eiffel and documents related to his life and work.
In the costume drama, the atmosphere of modernism is strongly felt, a bonus – heroes in chic vintage costumes.
The role of Adrienne was played by Emma McKay, known for the TV series “Sex Education”, and one of the references of the film was Damien Chazelle’s film “The Man on the Moon”.

90,000 Word about Igor’s regiment – Zabolotsky. The full text of the poem – Word about Igor’s regiment
Isn’t it time for us, brothers, to start
Word about Igor’s campaign,
To tell in an old speech
About the deeds of the daring prince?
And to sing to us, brothers, his –
In praise of his labors and wounds –
According to the epics of this time,
Not chasing Boyan with a thought.
That Boyan, full of wondrous powers,
Starting the prophetic melody,
Circled the field like a gray wolf,
Like an eagle, hovered under a cloud,
Thought spread along the tree.
He lived in the thunder of grandfather’s victories,
He knew a lot of feats and fights,
And a herd of swans barely light
He released a dozen falcons.
And, meeting the enemy in the air,
The falcons began reprisals,
And the swan flew up into the clouds
And trumpeted the glory of Yaroslav.
Sang the ancient Kiev throne,
Glorified the old duel,
Where Mstislav Rededya stabbed
Before the entire squad of Kosozh,
And Roman the Red praise
The swan sang, falling into the darkness.
But not ten falcons let
Our Boyan, but remembering the days of the past,
Prophetic fingers he lifted
And laid live ones on the strings –
The strings trembled, trembled,
The princes themselves rumbled glory to the princes.
We have a different idea
This story about the year of troubles
Since the reign of Vladimir
We will bring to Igor’s years
And we will glorify Igor, who,
Straining his mind, full of strength,
Courage has chosen to be his support,
The heart has been sharpened by the spirit of
And he led the shelves of his native land, threatening
Oh Boyan, old nightingale!
Starting the prophetic song,
If you were about the battles of our days
Sang, jumping along the mental tree;
If you, flying up under the clouds,
Our glory with grandfather’s glory
Combined for long centuries,
To glorify the son of Svyatoslav:
If you would rush along the Trayan path
Among the fields rushed and mounds, –
So now would you be sung by you
Igor -Prince, the mighty grandson of Trajanov:
“That is not a storm of falcons carries
Over the wide fields and valleys,
That is not a flock of jackdaws flying
To the Don on great open spaces!”.
Or so sing to you, Boyan,
Grandson Velesov, our military camp:
“Horses laugh for Rip,
Glory rings in Kiev,
Loud trumpets trumpet in Novyegrad,
In Putivl there are abusive banners!”
Prince Igor with a mighty retinue
Mila-brother Vsevolod is waiting.
Bui-tour Vsevolod says: – The only one
You are my brother, my Igor, and a stronghold!
Children of Svyatoslav we are with you,
So saddle the greyhound horses, brother!
And mine have long been ready for battle,
Near Kursk, under the saddle.
– And the kurens are glorious –
Knights are in good order:
Born under the chimneys,
Grew under the shells,
Grew up like warriors,
From the end of the spear fed.
All the ways are known to them,
All the yarugs are known,
Their bows are stretched,
The quivers are open,
Their sabers are sharpened,
The shells are gilded.
They themselves gallop across the field with wolves
And, always ready to fight,
They get with sharp swords
For the Prince – glory, honor – for themselves!
But, looking at the sun that day,
Igor marveled at the light:
In broad daylight, the night shadow
The Russian militia covered.
And, not knowing what fate promises,
the Prince said: – Brothers and retinue!
Better to be killed by swords,
Than at the hands of the filthy ones!
Let us sit, brothers, on dashing horses,
Let us see the blue Don! –
This thought came to the prince’s mind –
To tempt an unknown land,
And he said, full of military thoughts,
Neglecting the banner of heaven:
– I want to break a spear
In an unfamiliar Polovtsian field,
With you, brothers, lay your head down
Or Don scoop up a shell!
Igor the prince enters the golden stirrup,
He leaves the open field.
The sun closed his way with darkness,
Night woke up the birds with a thunderstorm,
The whistle of animals rushes, full of anger,
Calls Divs above him from the top of the tree,
Calls Divs, like a Polovtsian on patrol,
Outside Sula, to Surozh, to Pomorie,
Korsun and the whole district of the Khan,
And you, you blockhead Tmutorokansky!
And they run, having heard about the raid,
Polovtsi through the steppes and yarugs,
And their old carts creak,
They voice like swans in fright.
Igor moves to the Don with shelves,
And trouble rushes after him:
Birds, rising above the oak trees,
Soar with their plaintive cry,
Wolves howl over the ravines,
The cry of eagles comes from the darkness –
Know, Russians are crying to bones
Beast bloodthirsty eagles;
Already a fox on the shield with a scarlet breasts,
A groan and gnash in the darkness of the night …
O Russian land!
You are already over the hill.
The night lasts long. But
was lit by the morning dawns east.
Already the fog has swirled over the field,
The talk of the jackdaws in the grove has awakened,
The nightingale tickling ceased.
Rusichi, closing their shields in rows,
Prepared for a glorious fight,
Mining with sharp swords
For the Prince – glory, honors – for himself.
At dawn, on Friday, in the fogs,
Arrows flew across the field,
Crushed the army of the Polovtsian filthy
And drove off the Polovtsian maidens.
They seized gold without counting,
A pile of aksamites and silks,
Paved the swamps
Yapanchas with red enemies.
A scarlet banner with a white gonfalon,
Bangs and a spear made of silver
He took the brave Svyatoslavich as a reward,
Not wanting other good.
Having chosen a place to sleep in the field
And needing rest for a long time,
The fearless Oleg’s nest sleeps –
It has moved far!
The brave flew far away,
And no one is his master –
Be it a falcon, be it a proud gyrfalcon,
Be it a black raven – half.
And in the steppe, with his wild horde
As a gray wolf, scouring a little light,
Old Gzak runs to the Don great,
And Konchak hurries to follow him.
The night has passed, and the blood dawns
Herald the disaster in the morning.
A cloud is approaching from the sea
On four princely tents.
So that the four suns do not sparkle,
Illuminating Igor’s army,
Thunder will be on Kajala today,
To pour rain and whip arrows!
Blue lightning flutters,
Lightning flashes around.
This is where the Russian spears will break,
This is where the sharp sabers dull,
Rattling against the enemy’s shell!
O Russian land!
You are already over the hill.
Here Stribozh’s grandchildren flew out –
The winds rustled near the river,
And the enemy bows were thrown
A cloud of arrows on the Russian regiments.
Moaning mother earth is damp,
Turbid rivers flow fast,
Dust rushes, covering the field,
Banners splash: Polovtsians are coming!
From the Don, from the sea, with shouts and howling
The enemy is bringing down, but full of military forces,
The Russian camp closed before the battle –
Shit to the shield – and blocked the steppe.
Glorious tour of Vsevolod! With regiments
In the defense you stand firmly,
You will sprinkle arrows, with sharp blades
You sin against battle helmets.
Wherever you ride, tour, shining with a golden helm
Shishaks of the Avar lands with thunder
Fall, broken in half.
And the heads of the filthy ones fly off,
They were chopped up by sabers in battle,
And you, round, grieve over your wounds,
If you do not value your life!
If you are on this battlefield
Forget about the glory of former days,
About the golden throne of Chernigov,
About your desired Glebovna!
There were brothers, the times of Trajan,
Yaroslav’s years passed,
We forgot our great-grandchildren early
Terrible Oleg’s campaigns.
That Oleg forged sedition with a sword,
Making his way to his father’s throne,
Sowing arrows and, preparing for battle,
He entered Tmutorokani with a golden stirrup.
He entered the golden stirrup, preparing for the slaughter,
Vsevolod listened to the ringing far away,
And Vladimir behind his wall
Stopped his ears before the disaster.
And Boris, the son of Vyacheslav,
Zelen-Savan at Kanin’s shore
Granted military glory
For insulting the brave Oleg.
On the same sorrowful Kayala,
Stretching out a stretcher between the packs,
Svyatopolk took his father away in sorrow,
On Ugrian horses he lulled him.
Nicknamed Gorislavich by the people,
Prince Oleg came to Russia like a thief,
Dazhd-god’s grandson was in poverty on a campaign,
The human century in sedition was short-lived.
And our life was no longer rich,
Rarely did oratay go out into the field,
Crows circled over the arable land,
They sat down on the dead with shouts,
Yes jackdaws flew to talk,
Gathering in flocks for dinner …
Many battles in those years sounded,
But such as this never happened.
Already from morning to evening and again –
From evening to morning
The army of the brave prince is beating,
And the mountain of bloody bodies grows.
Day and night over an unfamiliar field
Polovtsian arrows whistle,
Sabers strike the helmets,
Haraluzh spears crackle.
The dead are strewn with bones,
Far from blood, blackened,
The field smoked underfoot,
And ascended with great sorrows
In Russia, that bloody sowing.
What is making noise,
What is ringing there
Far in the darkness, before dawn?
Igor, all wounded, hastens to return
Runaways back to battle.
You Can’t Hold the Enemy Host!
Sorry to lose brother Igor.
A day fought, a day was cut, another,
On the third day by noon, the banners fell,
And my brother parted with his brother
On the bloody river, on Kajala.
The Russians lacked wine,
The squads completed a glorious feast –
They made the matchmakers drunk
Yes, and laid down their heads.
The steppe wilted, full of pity,
And the trees bowed their branches.
And a difficult time came,
The foreign land swallowed up the Russians,
Resentment arose from the kurgans
And entered the land of Traians as a virgin.
She clasped the wings of a swan,
Don and the sea cried out with a cry,
She shook the times of contentment,
Announcing a great calamity.
And the princes do not gather squads,
Do not go to war against the adversary,
Small is called great
And they forge sedition brother against brother.
And the enemies are rushing to Russia in a cloud,
And everywhere disaster and grief.
You are far away, our mighty falcon,
Biy birds, gone to the blue sea!
Igor’s squad will not be resurrected,
Do not rise after a terrible battle!
And Karna appeared and in the rupture
The death cry sent forth, and far away
Jelly darted along the roads,
Shaking with a sparkling horn.
And from the edge, brothers, and to the edge
The Russian wives fell, sobbing:
– We won’t see the dear ones anymore!
Who will wake them up in the battlefield?
We can’t think of them now,
We can’t think of them now,
And we don’t live in a rich mansion,
We don’t ring with silver and gold!
Groans, brothers, Kiev over the mountain,
It was hard for Chernigov to attack,
And sorrow like a plentiful river
Spilled over the Russian villages.
And the Polovtsians are hanging over us,
Tribute is taken from the squirrel from the yard,
And sedition grows between the princes,
And no good is seen from the princes.
Prince Igor and Vsevolod the brave –
Svyatoslav brave sons –
That’s who with the fearless squad
Awaken the filthy for war!
And how long ago, with a mighty hand
For our insults, having repaid,
This evil with a great thunderstorm
Svyatoslav, their father, put them to sleep!
He was formidable in Kiev with enemies
And he did not spare the filthy men –
He frightened them with strong regiments,
He chopped with damask swords
And he stepped on the Steppe.
He and yarugi trampled down the hills,
He disturbed the flow of fast rivers,
Dried up the swampy districts,
He crossed the steppe to the lukomorye.
And that filthy Kobyak
From the iron enemy ranks
He pulled out and fell with a whirlwind – a dog –
In Kiev, near the prince’s towers.
The Venetians, Greeks and Morava
Every day they sing about the Russians,
Prince Svyatoslav is magnified,
Igor the brave is cursed.
And the guest of the German land laughs,
That when there were no more forces,
Igor-Prince in Kayala Polovtsian
Russian riches drowned.
And the rumor about the daring one runs,
As if he, having called evil to Russia,
From the saddle, unfortunate, golden
Moved into Kaschey’s saddle …
The cities fell silent, and again
In Russia, the fun died.
In distant Kiev, on the mountains,
Svyatoslav had a vague dream,
And great fear seized him,
And he gathered the boyars according to the charter.
– From the evening to the present day, –
The prince said, drooping his head, –
On the yew bed I was
Covered with a black shroud.
They scooped me blue wine,
Poisoned bitter potion,
Poured pearls on the canvas
From the quivers of the enemy’s product.
My golden-domed tower stood
Without a horse and, foreshadowing grief,
The gray raven in Plesensk screamed
And flew, rustling, on the blue sea.
And the boyars answered the prince:
– Your mind is confused, prince, from sorrow.
Weren’t your two beloved children
Ascended over the unfamiliar field –
To look for Tmutorokani-grad
Or to scoop the Don with a shell?
Yes, their efforts were in vain.
Laughing at your gray hair,
Polovtsy cut off their wings,
And they themselves entangled in fishing line. –
On the third day the struggle ended
On the bloody river, on Kajala,
And two pillars went out in the sky,
Two luminaries disappeared in the dusk.
Together with them, falling across the sea,
Two beautiful months eclipsed –
Young Oleg and Svyatoslav
They plunged into the darkness of the night.
And the sky closed and went out
White light over the Russian land,
And, like fierce leopards,
The nasty rushed at us with the war.
And Hula was erected on Praise,
And Violence broke free,
Divas spun to the ground, and there was
Night all around and grief was abundance.
The Gothic Virgins live at the edge of the
Sea of Blue.
Playing with Russian gold,
The time of Busovo is being sung.
Revenge is cherished by Sharukanya,
There is no end to their rejoicing …
But us, brothers-squad,
Only troubles are guarded.
And then the great Svyatoslav
Dropped his golden word,
Mixed with tears, saying:
– O sons, I did not expect such an evil!
You ruined your youth,
They attacked the enemy at the wrong time,
Not with great honor in battle
Spilled blood on the earth with the enemy.
Your heart in forged armor
Tempered in an unauthorized rampage.
What have you children done to me
And to my silver gray hair?
Where is my brother, my formidable Yaroslav,
Where are his servants from Chernigov,
Where are the Tatrans, the inhabitants of the oak forests,
Topchaks, Olber and Revugs?
But there was a time – without shields,
Taking knives from the boot,
They went to the hordes of enemies,
To avenge our ashes.
This is where the glory of the great-grandfather’s thunder!
Well you decided to beat it at random:
“We will take our glory by force,
And after it we will share the past.”
Wonderful for an old man – should I look younger?
The old falcon, although weak in appearance,
Will make the birds fly high,
Will not give a nest to anyone in offense.
Yes, the princes do not want to help me,
Little sense in the strength of the brave.
Time has moved back?
After all, under the very Rimov shout
Rusichi under the Polovtsian saber!
And Vladimir in his wounds, a little alive –
Woe to the prince in the battle!
Great Prince Vsevolod! How long will we endure great torments
Aren’t you on the throne of Suzdal
About the throne to please the father?
You will splash the Volga with oars,
You will scoop the Don with a helm,
From living bows you swing arrows,
Surrounded by the sons of Gleb.
If you had brought rati to the rescue,
To keep the enemy out of your hands, –
They sold girls by foot,
And slaves – by cutting them in a circle.
You, princes Bui-Rurik and David!
Your military thunders have ceased.
Didn’t yours swim in blood
And not your brave regiments
Roar like rounds, dying
From a red-hot saber, from the hand of
Warrior of an unknown land?
Stand up, sovereigns, in the golden stirrup
For an insult on this dark day,
For the Russian land,
For Igor’s wounds –
For the dashing son of Svyatoslavich!
Yaroslav, Prince of Galician! Your city
Stands high under the clouds.
You saddled the peaks of the Carpathians
And supported with iron shelves.
On your throne with gold
You, prince, decide eight things at once,
And the people call you around
Osmomysl – for great reason.
Having locked the door of the Danube with a key,
Interceding the road for the King,
You mark Bremen above the clouds,
Judge you as far as the Danube.
Your power has flowed through the lands,
You enter the boundaries of Kiev,
And into saltans from the father’s table
You shoot princely arrows.
So shoot Konchak, sovereign,
Hit the enemy from the distant mountains –
For the Russian land,
For Igor’s wounds –
The bold son of Svyatoslavich!
You, princes Mstislav and Bui-Roman!
Your mind rushes to the achievement of a living thought.
And you rush to the enemy camp,
As a falcon spreading through the fog,
A bird in a riot to overcome wanting.
The prince’s chest is all in iron,
Latin shines with a golden silk,
And wherever your path lies,
The whole earth trembles from weight.
You beat Khinov and Lithuania;
Deremela, Cumans, Yatvyags,
Throwing spears, fell on the grass
And bowed the violent head
Under damask swords and banners.
But the former glory is no longer with us.
The clear light of the sun does not shine for Igor.
Not for good the tree dropped its leaves:
The rotten army divided the city.
According to Sule, according to Ros, there is no enemy.
Igor’s brave regiment will not be resurrected!
Don is calling us, prince, calling you and me!
The brave Olgovichi alone entered the battle.
Prince Ingvar, Prince Vsevolod! And you
We call for a long march,
We have three Mstislavichs,
Six-winged princely family!
Aren’t you in an honest battle?
Cities and townships got out?
Where is your fatherly shell,
Faithful shield, a spear made of Lyash steel?
To lock the gates of the Field,
It’s time for your arrows to ring
For the Russian land,
For Igor’s wounds –
For the bold son of Svyatoslavich!
It does not flow like a silver stream
To Pereyaslavl, the city of Sula.
Already the Dvina behind the Polotsk wall
Under the clicks of the nasty in the swamp flowed away.
But Izyaslav, son of Vasilkov, with swords
I called the Lithuanian helmets,
Alone with his brave regiments
cut down the glory of Vseslav the grandfather.
And he himself, chopped down with a red-hot saber,
In a foreign land, among the bloody grasses,
Burned with seething blood in battle,
Fell on a scarlet shield, groaning:
Forest animals licked the blood on the young body, leaving their dens.-
And at the hour of death to help the brave husband
None of the brothers rushed into battle.
Alone in the steppe his pearl soul
From the brave he shed his body.
Through gold, brothers, necklace
She left, leaving her shelter.
The songs are sad, the fun stopped,
Only the Gorodensky trumpets are singing …
Yaroslav and Vseslav’s great-grandsons!
Bow down the banners! Drop the sword!
You jumped out of the ancient glory,
Kohl decided to neglect honor.
It is you by strife and turmoil
You brought filthy people to Russia,
And since then we have not lived from the fierce
Polovtsian cursed land!
It was the seventh century of the Trojans.
The mighty Prince of Polotsk Vseslav
He cast a lot, looking into the future,
Thinking about his beloved.
Contemplating a new sedition,
He found support in Kiev
And rushed to the ancient throne,
And hit the throne with a spear.
But the old princely tower did not flinch,
And Vseslav, hanging in the blue haze,
Jumped out of Belgorod like a beast –
Not a tenant on the Kiev land.
And, ringing with axes for glory,
Opened the doors of Novgorod,
And he broke the glory of Yaroslav,
And from Dudutok through the oak forest
He slipped like a wolf to Nemiga.
And on the river, brothers, on Nemiga
They do not give the princes honor in offense –
Day and night they lay sheaves on the barn,
They do not lay sheaves, but put their heads.
Not with a flail – with his damask sword
In that land the farmer threshes,
And he lays his life on the battlefield,
Blows the soul from the bloody bodies.
The banks of the Nemiga of that damned
Blackened from bloody grasses –
I did not sow them with good,
And with Russian bones – Vseslav.
That Vseslav judged people by court,
Vseslav divided the cities of the princes,
Himself wandered like an animal all night in the fog,
Evening – in Kiev, until dawn – in Tmutorokan,
Like a wolf attacking the faithful way,
Could he swear oath to Hors running.
At Sofia in Polotsk, it used to be
They call for matins, and he
In Kiev, as soon as dawn came,
Bell hears a chime.
And although a prophetic soul dwelt in his mighty body
All the sufferings of the prince overcame
And he died, breathing revenge.
So he completed his unprecedented path.
And Boyan said to him then:
“Prince Vseslav! Neither wise nor daring
Will not escape the judgment of God. ”
Oh, to moan you, dear land,
Remembering the old days
And the princes of bygone years!
Old Vladimir is gone.
He was brave, and no force
He would not have pinned him to Kiev.
Who keeps the ancient banners?
These – Rurik wears, those – David,
But not together their banners splash,
Separately sing their copy and shine.
Above the wide bank of the Danube,
Above the great Galician land
Cries, from Putivl, flying,
Voice of Yaroslavna young:
– I will turn into a darling, poor cuckoo
And a sleeve with a beaver edge,
Bending over, I will wet in Kajala
Will fly away, the mists will disperse,
Prince Igor will open his eyes,
And bloody wounds in the morning,
Leaning over a mighty body.
Far away in Putivl, on the visor,
As soon as the dawn breaks in the morning,
Yaroslavna, full of sorrow,
Like a cuckoo, calls out to the Jura:
Are you targeting them on the Russian regiments?
Why don’t you like to fly in the open
High under the cloud to fly,
Ships cherish in the blue sea,
Sway the waves sway?
You, sowing arrows of the enemy,
Only death you blow from a height.
Oh, why, why my fun
In the feather grass you scattered forever?
Wailing at dawn in Putivl,
Like a cuckoo in early spring,
Yaroslavna calls a young one,
On the city wall weeping:
– My glorious Dnieper! Stone mountains
In the lands of the Polovtsian you broke through,
Svyatoslav into the distant expanses
Wore the Kobyakov regiments.
Take care of the prince, lord,
Keep it on the far side,
So that I forget the tears from now on,
So that he returns to me alive!
Far away in Putivl, on the visor,
As soon as dawn breaks in the morning,
Yaroslavna, full of sorrow,
Like a cuckoo, calls to the Jura:
– The sun is three times bright! With you
Everyone is welcome and warm.
Why are you the brave prince’s army
Burned with hot rays?
And why are you waterless in the desert
Under the blow of the formidable Polovtsian
Thirst pulled the marching bow,
Grief filled the quiver?
And the sea leaped. Through the fog
The whirlwind rushed to the north of his native –
The Lord Himself from the Polovtsian countries
The Prince shows the way to home.
The dawns are gone. Igor is sleeping.
Igor sleeps, but does not fall asleep.
Igor flies to the Don with his thoughts
Measures the road to the Donets.
Now it’s midnight. The horse has been ready for a long time.
Who is whistling in the fog across the river?
To Ovlur. His conditional call
The prince, covered by darkness, hears:
– Come out, Prince Igor! – And barely
Ovlur fell silent, as from the night roar
the earth shook,
The grass rustled,
A violent wind shook the wind.
Turning into an ermine-squirrel,
Prince Igor rushed to the reeds,
And swam like a gogol on a wave,
Flew like the wind on a horse.
The horse has fallen, and the prince is off the horse,
He gallops home like a gray wolf.
Like a falcon, hovering into the clouds,
Seeing the Donets from afar.
Flies without roads and without paths,
Beats swan ducks for dinner.
Where Igor flies like a falcon,
There Ovlur, like a gray wolf, runs,
Everything is covered with dew from midnight grasses,
Greyhound horses in the run tearing.
The crows will not croak in the field,
The jackdaw will not shout there,
Magpies will not rattle more,
They just jump through the bushes.
Woodpeckers, meeting Igor,
They sound like a way to the river,
And, announcing a cheerful dawn,
Nightingales rejoice in the distance.
And, on the waves of the knight cherishing,
Donets Rivers: – You are great, Prince Igor!
You brought joy to the Russian lands,
Returning from bondage to your home.
– Oh, the river! – answered the prince. – A lot of
And greatness to you! At night
You rocked Igor on the waves,
You covered your silver shore with
Green grass for him.
And when he dozed under the foliage,
Where a gloomy haze reigned,
His guard was a gogol over the water,
The prince’s seagull guarded in the sky.
And not all rivers have such glory.
Here Stugna, having a thin temper,
Spilled majestically near the mouth,
Devoured all neighboring streams,
And closed the Dnieper from Rostislav,
And Rostislav died in the depths.
The mother cries over the dark river,
Cries the young man in the darkness,
And the flowers drooped, and with longing
The tree leaned to the ground.
Not magpies chirping in the field,
Not crows are calling at the Donets –
Polovtsian horses trample,
Gzak and Konchak are looking for a fugitive.
And old Gzak said to Konchak:
– If the falcon flies into the tower,
The falcon will get trapped –
We will shoot him with a golden arrow. –
And then Konchak said to him:
– If the falcon aspires to the tower,
The falcon will get trapped –
We will entangle him with a girl.
– If we entangle him with a girl, –
Old Gzak answered Konchak, –
He and the girl will rush into his tower,
And any bird will begin to beat us
In the Polovtsian field, Khan Konchak!
And Boyan uttered how to end the speech
To the Songmaker of Prince Svyatoslav:
– It is hard, brothers, a head without shoulders,
Bitter for a body, since it is headless.-
Darkness stands over the Russian land:
It is bitter for her without Igor alone.
But the sun rises in heaven –
Prince Igor appeared in Russia.
Songs are hovering from the distant Danube,
Flying across the sea to Kiev.
