The Russian Primary Chronicle, also known as the "Tale of Bygone Years", was written by a monk named Nestor in the early 12th century. It provides a detailed account of the early history of the eastern Slavs. The first episode began with the three sons of Noah, the tower of Babel, and the blessing of St. Andrew the apostle. The second episode is about founding the city of Kiev. This third episode takes us to the year 907, when Prince Oleg led his warriors in an attack against the Greeks.
Returning to their Christian roots, Russian filmmakers are making quality films, promoting traditional values.
