Russia can only be congratulated indeed for this magnificent impressive opening of the winter Olympics. What an incredible creative performance of all involved. Swan Lake music in this ambiance on world stage !!! Absolutely moving.

Dokumentor, sad for all germans. On top of massive ridiculous costs for everything but own development they now have to pay € 19 monthly!!! for this low level boring old fashioned shows and some self-hating docu's from mercenary Guido Knopp. This GEZ law gives me the thrills hand in hand with widely spread blocking of even You Tube films under the banner of so called Urheberrechte !!! Depressing.

All we need is for the weather to hold and this could be great for Russia and the world.

Hope fully it will be a success!

This was because they dont wanted to show girls kissing in front of the family audience.

T he same hypocrite state TV took a leading part nowadays in the smear campaign against russia.

Tou che!

Good luck to all russian athlets and thank you for your great hospitality!

Chosing t.a.t.u. music at the opening ceremony for russia is a first gold medal for russia.

10 years ago, t.a.t.u. were performing a song in the most popular german TV show, which is called "Wetten dass?". The german TV turned the cameras into another direction, away from the girls, when they started kissing during the performance.

WHAT AN AMAZING OPENING!

Th ank you from germany.

My personal bow and congrats to the organizers who choose t.a.t.u. for the entering music of the russian athlets.

We had weeks of anti-russian-propaga nda in german media before the olympics. Stating Russia is homophobic, undemocratic and other bullshit that was meant to demonize russia. Lots of german people were annoyed and angry about this propaganda in state and corporate media.

Well Done Russia!

Mega-fidel - I totally agree with you A MASSIVE TOAST TO RUSSIA PRESIDENT PUTIN and may Russia win alot of Gold Medals.

I am very happy that nor obanarama, cameronkey attended they are too busy banging on about gay rights in the west. I like Mr Putin he is a strong man and he absolutely right in telling the west 'stop going on about gay rights in Russia when the Saudi's are hanging them'. President Putin has guts, suave, sophistication, intelligence, strength, style, coolness, women who adore him, men want to be him. Oh Russia how lucky you are please can we share him in Asia??

As the English would say, the proof of the pudding is in the eating.
Some will be eating humble pie!

GO SOCHI GO !!!
