A fire for dummies, conquering post and fighting on the beam: in Russia escorted carnival


RT in Russian

In Russia the pancake week ends. The Russians see off the Shrove Tuesday, traditionally, burning straw effigy symbolizing winter. The final day of the festival is called “forgiveness Sunday”. After him comes the Great lent, which lasts 40 days until Easter. RT has collected pictures of social network users with the last pancake of the day.
