MTV Russia is just like MTV everywhere else—except that it plays some Russian stuff, too. They used to have a program called “Русская 10-тка” (“Russian 10”) devoted to the best Russian-language pop currently on the market, but that program has since morphed into another program called “Rus_Chart.” Once a month, SRAS provides a snapshot of what’s at the top five of that chart, with YouTube videos and links to our Russian music site.


1. “Сочиняй мечты” (“Imagine Dreams”)—Влади, Каста и Уля


2. “Москва” (“Moscow”)—DJ Smash, Винтаж


3. “Кофе мой друг” (“Coffee Is My Friend”)—Нервы



4.  “Около тебя” (“Near You”)—Ёлка



5.  “Реквием по любви” (“Requiem for Love”)—Тимати, Григорий Лепс
