Ruslan: Bridging the World and produced by Volga-Dnepr Group was released in 2010 and was timed to coincide with the 20th anniversary of Volga-Dnepr Group, the world's largest operator of Antonov 124-100 Ruslan aircraft. The documentary is devoted to the history of the Ruslan's design and development and to the people who helped earn a global recognition for this masterpiece of Soviet engineering and as a unique leader in cargo aviation.

The film features both well and little known facts about the Antonov 124-100 as well as expert opinions, rare archive footage, and scenes from the present day operating life of this great plane.

Whoever edited this deserves a swift kick in the butt. It looks like an art school student's project, with tons of useless cinematographic effects which only detract from the interesting footage shown.

At about 19:00 into the video, they show an animation of an An-124 air-launching an SS-19 ICBM by sliding it out the back. That would have been quite a sight....
