The only postman in a remote area around a Russian provincial town of Ryazan, Nikolay Semyonov, is a lot of other things apart from his job. He is also a skillful craftsman, a devoted friend and a remarkable person. God knows what would happen to the local dwellers if it wasn't for Nikolay. He and his sturdy horse help them survive by delivering news, groceries and manual labor all around the neighborhood. Among the indifference of the modern age, Nikolay manages to display the old-fashioned human values such as selflessness, philanthropy and dedication.
Pastor and pilgrim Gennady Mokhnenko - a foster father of 32 former street boys, travels to Africa to sponsor a 33rd son, a boy from the streets of Kenya. He brings along three of his foster sons and a team of volunteers. They work in orphanages and hospitals, bring money to provide medications, food and clothes in their mission to help Kenyan street kids and orphans in their day-to-day struggles. RT’s camera crew follows them in Kenya to hear about their experiences in this troubled part of the world.
Kosovo, with NATO’s help, won independence from Serbia in 1999. In 2014 Serbia opened its borders with the young republic allowing tens of thousands of migrants to leave Kosovo for Europe. Disenchanted Kosovars hoped to escape poverty and unemployment by seeking better lives abroad for themselves and their children. The massed departure has come to be known as “the Exodus”.
Egypt is a land where the concept of gender equality has barely taken root. It’s hard for women to make ends meet and even harder if they happen to be single parents. When Sisa’s husband died, leaving her alone to bring up and feed a young daughter, she came up with a novel solution; she became a man! For the next 43 years she pretended to be male. Now in her 60s, she has no doubts about living that lie, saying it was a far better choice than taking another husband.
