The Survival Russia Channel is about “The Reality Of Survival”. I live on a Homestead in far away Russian wild nature. Here is no room for “TV” Survival.
Only Reality counts here. Survival Russia promotes the philosophy of always carrying equipment and never to be parted from equipment which will affect chances of Survival.
So did the old timers and pioneers of both the East and the West.

    You were completely upstaged by the Pink Ninja making faces. 🙂

  2. Nick Spittler says:

    Great stuff! We are in the middle of a big storm here in the NE U.S. Massive amount of snow, 14 inches (about 32 centimeters) in less than 24 hours and still falling. Power is out, those dependent on electricity for heat are screwed. Good possibility of being stuck away from home. Knowledge like this could be a life saver. Thanks!

  3. muttomaki1 says:

    Extremely good tips Lars. I did not know fresh birch would burn. I came across your Varusteleke Särmä hooded fleece jacket video. I got one for $48 a month ago. They are now $30!

  4. American Bushcraft says:

    Hello from boston. Going to white mountains after this huge storm passes fire will be hard.

    You sound like arnold swazenegger…i thought u trolling him…lol..

    Hey, we used to process 2 trucks of birch timber each summer for our grandmother when I was a kid. Took us several days every time. Most of the times my father and my uncle were splitting and we were just bringing the timber to the barn where my mother and my aunt were stacking them. Somewhere at about 14-15 years old I've started to do a splitting job too.

    Never heard of a hydraulic splitter btw 🙂

  7. Juror63 says:

    Lars, would you consider having your daughter practice some of your "survival" techniques. Such as make a fire, build a shelter, pick a good trail, and such. I think that would inspire people.

  8. ABC DEF says:

    I have noticed when using damp birch it's impossible to keep the fire burning when it's too small, if you know what I mean, not enough heat output to dry the wood, it has to be pretty large to burn well. Maybe I missed it but it's very important also to pile damp wood around fire to dry, everything gets much easier after a while then. When you get fire large enough all green wood burns even in larger pieces.

  9. Christine Mann says:

    We are getting much needed rain in California and some snow higher up :O) I walked down to check on my homeless friend. She was DRY wrapped up in her Plash Palatka; but she is a little thing. Still, at 2 meters+ I love how it doesn't flap and make noise like ripstop nylon or makes me sweat like the old rubberized Vietnam ponchos. We got funny looks having coffee and breakfast from people  dressed like idiots. I was waiting for BIRCH BIRCH BIRCH to turn into an American man's grumble over a nagging GF. Another AWESOME video.—-Christopher

  10. Metatron says:

    Hey Lars, schönes Video. Birke ist wirklich ein universelles Zeug. Dein Feuerstahl sieht interessant aus. Wo hast du den denn her?. Gruss aus Deutschland…..wir haben hier im Moment auch Russische Temperaturen.

  11. Millennium Man says:

    Here in upstate NY it’s ash that burns after it’s freshly harvested.

  12. Blackfly Bushcraft and Survival says:

    Great video as usual, looking forward to the next one!

  13. derrick felix says:

    Epic News, we have snow, 6" worth, Exmoor Somerset. Probably gone by the weekend. But we have snow. Cheers

  14. Michael Smith says:

    Is it really that low humidity usually where you live? In Finland it's normal to have relative humidity of 70-100% all the way up to -30C temperatures (especially near the coast). I suppose it is because we are next to a small sea and not that far away from the Atlantic compared to you guys. I don't know how different it feels to having like 20% relative humidity because I've never experienced it personally.

  15. Chris Parlow says:

    BBBBbbbbrrrrr ! That's cold. Sir you have no other hard woods ? Like Oak, or walnut etc,etc,


    Great demo Lars. It goes to show, with a little knowledge and basic tools that you can keep in the car or backpack you can really make a difference in a bad situation. Did you happen to see Lonnie's video on wet birch bark? that shocked me mate, i had no idea it would work. lol. Now, i know. Cheers Moose.

  17. Paul Stephen Outdoors says:

    Thanks for the demo Lars. Enjoying your channel. Cheers from Scotland.

  18. James Gunter says:

    Upstaged by the "Pink Ninja"! Ha ha! I live in the Rocky Mountains where there's no birch trees, and therefore no birch bark, but some of the other points you made are still very useful. Thanks for the video!

  19. When I'm out hiking I try to always make it a point to collect birch bark, great for starting a fire.

  20. John mony says:

    I went to a Halloween party and bonfire once where the host was burning 3 1/2 to 4 inch limbs 4 feet long that he had cut just the day before from live trees. The fire was 7 or 8 feet in diameter and he was throwing 25 or 30 of these limbs on it at a time and we had to sit on hay bales that were 15 feet away from the fire to keep our knees from burning. once you get a fire going to a certain point you can feed it with any wood to sustain it. This was a good video because many people don't realize that.

  21. Alice Leyva says:

    That coat looks so soft and warm.  Didn't you do a video on a coat like that?  I want one.  Your videos are continuing to be so valuable.  Thanks!

  22. Alice Leyva says:

    Oh, I see, the pants are the same.  Good looking and the right color to blend in, but not if you are hoping to be rescued.  Would you recommend a bright scarf or something?

  23. Andrew Smith says:

    When undertaking scrub clearance work for Natural England we are required to burn all resulting waste.
    This is to prevent the spread of pest and disease that might reside in the plants. It also prevents unnaturally occurring nutrients returning to the soil from wood chipping (Often high volumes, 30+ cubic metres in small area).

    All of the waste timber and brash is green and its always a challenge to get the fire started.
    Ash is a superb firewood when green and will work in much the same way as Birch when cut fine.
    There is a fungus Daldinia concentrica which we have used with great success when starting fires in these conditions. It predominantly grows on ash and was once used to transport fire between camps as it smoulders for hours.
    They fungus needs to be dry (Often found on the floor after falling off the trees), once its ignited it burns a bit like charcoal. I've even used it to cook on when collected in quantity.

    The challenges of the outdoorsman are truly universal, but its great fun learning how to work with nature to achieve success 🙂

  24. Far North Bushcraft And Survival says:

    Another great real-life video where you demonstrate fire building in a difficult situation. A good video of a situation where experience and knowledge pays off.

  25. Prepared Camping says:

    Another awesome video Lars!!

    I live in the UK that comes to a standstill if it gets beyond a hard frost, great to see how people have to deal with real winter weather! 👍

  26. Tomsey Bitago says:

    You should eat the Twix, not put in the fire. Just playing….I love your accent.

  27. Michelle Eden says:

    Oh my God! You get New York City weather is Siberia? Who knew? Where were you, an old clear-cut? I used to earn my living by making fake antiques in New York. If you are rich and stupid (yes, I know, that's redundant), and live in a high apartment overlooking whatever, and it's all in a modern style, then a fake duck or shorebird decoy looks fantastic. Truth is that the grass is always greener and we covet things from far away where life is different. I am stuck in this gulag for personal reasons, but I have always loved wild places (yes, I know you romanticize a bit and I love it). Your channel takes me there when I can't go except in my mind—thanks you so much for your work on YouTube.  Say Hello to the pink ninja from an unknown friend in NYC. Birch bark rules! Peace.

  28. NEW GEN SCOUT says:

    Any size fire radiates heat outward, having it built so close to the snow bank will cause the air to melt the snow and flush under your fire base or cause steam which will reduce the oxygen your fire needs . Something like that.. on a clear day with little wind you'd be better off building a fire without a surround of snow. Also if you dig a small pit and lay a bed across the top then build your fire up on it warm air can rise from under increasing the drying of wood used and the convection gives greater strength to your fire and reduces maintenance. Jus saying. Great channel brother love the kid at 5:57 sticking their tongue out 😂😂 God bless mate. ATB

  29. Max NY says:

    Thumbs up subscribed! Appreciate your honesty straight talk. I had to press like button, "pink ninja" is super cute! Job well done mate.
