Because most eJuggle articles are in English or Spanish, and many jugglers don’t know any Russian, it was suggested to me to curate a collection of Russian juggling videos, especially older or lesser known ones, that many readers may not have seen before. I will also try to include some of the best examples of the videos of Russian and Soviet jugglers that you may be familiar with as well. I hope you enjoy these twenty videos. Feel free to contact me with further examples that I can consider adding to this collection in part three. I do know that some of these jugglers have immigrated to other countries and may consider themselves a new nationality. I also apologize if I’ve mistaken someone as Russian who is actually from Ukraine or another country. We’ll start off with some jugglers and videos that might be familiar to you already.
Boris Panfilenok (Buba)
The Four Afanasjews
Eduard Abert and the Aberts
Gena Shvartsman Cristiani
I hope to eventually do a third part of this collection, so please feel free to send me more videos that you feel should be in part three.
