Shoutout to Baikal at the 2014 Olympics

This short film kicked off coverage of the 2014 Winter Olympics on Russian TV. The film begins with an alphabet primer in which each letter corresponds to some facet of Russian history and culture, and it goes on to depict major moments in the history of Russian civilization up to the present. In the alphabet section, the Russian letter “Б” is for “Байкал” (Baikal) and the film’s protagonist is shown taking a nice, cool drink from the waters of the lake.

Baikal was also featured in the Olympic spotlight a few months ago when SCUBA divers took the Olympic torch below its surface.
