Hunting The Caspian Sea Monster

In the 1960s American spy satellites photographed a huge leviathan craft docked in the Caspian Sea. The CIA dubbed it the Caspian monster. It was however a top secret Ekranoplan that was built for war. It remained in a naval dockyard under lock and key after the USSR collapsed until recently when it broke free and washed ups on a beach a few hours to the south near the Russian city of Derbent. I flew to Rostov and set off across the varied landscapes and cultures of Southern Russia in search of the infamous Caspian monster.
Kalmyk song on radio is called Eejin Duun by Okna Tsahan Zam and is on LTworlds if you search it.

  • Krasavchik. Where did you learn to speak Russian? I like your channel

  • This is so true... People live good lifes of others powerty... And the soviet did just that... Just like England.. USA and most of Europe... But next video visit the countries that was on the other side.... And you will find that most countries that still live in fear and poverty has a dictator as a leader.... Gorgy did what was right for the world....

  • Everytime I watch one of your Russia videos it makes me sad. I met the most lovely person from Russia when I lived in nyc and we became great friends, but she was very wealthy and from the city, and told me that places like this don't exist anymore, places that even decades after a communist dictator is dead people are still afraid to speak freely about the subject for the most part..... It's actually pretty terrifying

  • I just love this channel. He travels in the same manner I do. Too many commercial "travel shows", especially ones produced by companies in the UK, have a host who talks down to people in a really condescending manner, and who thinks it's comedy genius. Bald treats most everyone with respect, and in return is treated warmly by the people he meets. I hope to meet him on the road in a remote village somewhere in the world sometime in the future. It would be my honor to buy him a round or three.
