Watched interview today (Russian)

Today I watched Oliver Stone's interview with president Putin, it was all over the news today. I could barely make out one single word from the original language. Basically all I got out of it was one word here and one word there and (with a little help from Google) the phrase "Карфаген должен быть уничтожен". Tidbits of the rest: "страна", "Мир", "Реальные угрозы", "Бедность в мире" and something close to "oкружающая", all else completely lost in translation. When I hear some leader speak in German, French, English or any of the Scandianvian languages (or even Dutch or Spanish) I can usually make out at least the gist of it, but this was nearly all lost in translation.

It's time to rewatch the collection of dashboard cams!

Don't give up! Maybe try watching something easier for the starters? Maybe an old kind cartoon? One of my favourites is "Как стать большим" with a kitten in it, find it on YouTube.
