The group “Russkij Razmer” was formed in 1991. Nowadays it works and tours and it`s contact telephone (812) 9282771.The organizers and the first group members were two friends - Dmitriy Kopotilov and Viktor Bondaryuk. Being occupied in different collectives, merging into one, and finding themselves again in the creative search, they persisted on realizing their dream. Viktor being the student of a construction technical school learned the techniques of playing drums. Dmitriy mastered playing bass guitar at the age of 15 being a school-boy, and later learned to play keyboards.

In 1990 living in Kustanay (north Kazakhstan) D. Kopotilov recorded the phonograms for demonstration of two songs for the new project planned by him. One of them, “Hello America”, soon in 1991 was recorded with a new vocalist at the sound record studio of “LenNauchFilm” in Saint Petersburg . By this record “Russkij Razmer”opened the diskography. Working at it the duet of voices of Bondaryuk and Kopotilov was created, and it`s sound became easy knowable on any disk of “Russkij Razmer”. Then, in a studio “LNF” they continued to work with other material. During the period of the first steps of group the author of music and texts was D. Kopotilov. The song “UAU” appeared which became the visiting-card of group for a long time.

Their first club concerts were given in House of Culture ( named in honour of “First Five-year”), which is at the present days already blasted for building at this place the new Mariinskiy theater of opera and ballet.

Besides records and club work participants were carry out producer activity on advancement of group. A lot of time was spent searching. The minutes of despair happened. In one of such periods Bondaryuk abandoned “Russkij Razmer” and left to Germany with other musical group.

The membership of the group at that moment was:

  • А. Тюрин (A.Turin) - guitar
  • Д. Хиль (D.Hil) - key, programming, vocal
  • Д. Копотилов (D.Kopotilov) - key, producer
  • С. Куницына (S.Kunicina) - vocal                                                                                             After a while Bondaryuk returned to St-Petersburg and the musicians of group decided to take him back in the complement of “Russkij Razmer”.In March 1993, in a sporting-concert complex Ubileiniy a large concert took place with the claim name «Russkij Razmer collects friends». Many bright stars of Russian stage took part in that concert: Arkadiy Ukupnik, Alena Apina, Natalia Vetlitskaya, Tat'yana Ovsienko, “Stars” of Natalia Gul'kina, Sergey Chumakov, Lika Star, “Little prince”, “Kommisar”, “Stella”, “Dens of machines”, “Fairy” of Svetlana Razina, Vadim Kazachenko, the group “Na-na”, Vladimirskaya, Roma Zhukov, Lada Dens, Carolina, a concert conducted Igor Seliverstov. Producer was Sergey Chernikh.


The first replicated album of “Russkij Razmer” was recorded together with Vadim Volodin, a famous Russian sound-arranger and producer. The work was carried out in Moscow. The director was Sergey Chernikh (later - the presenter of a musical television program «Tele-Compact»).

Since 1994 “Russkij Razmer” was a participant of numerous, musical television programs. The video for the song "Batman" (the album "UAU") reached hit places on the top charts (video clip dir. by Dedenev B., arrangement and sound Vadim Volodin ). Aesthetics of fantasy of the beginning of ХХth century became the basis of the stage image of the group. And stage suits, made in 30th years style, were sewn on Kopotilov`s sketches, who did not hide the infatuation for this genre in his modern embodiment. This suits were used on the cover of the first album “UAU”, during the record of the clip with the same name and on the concerts of the group.

The concerts of touring in Russia world stars (“Army of Lovers”, Haddaway, La Toya Jackson..) began the group “Russkij Razmer”.

In 1995 the album “Davay-davay” (Come on! Come on!) of humorous versions of the hits of the Russian stage appeared, in collaboration with “Professor Lebedinskiy”.

Great success had this joint project in Russia.

A young radio-DJ Dmitry Nagiev (now a popular TV showman, theatre and cinema actor) actively promoted the group's new compositions in a creative unity.

In 1995 the group's female vocalist Angela left the group for her solo career.

In 1997 a master-choreographer Yulia Koshelyova from Novosibirsk joined the group. The song “Suburban blues” of famous Russian musician Mike Naumenko (Zoo) was recorded in collaboration with a group “Chihz and Co.”, (Siskin and Co.) for participating in a television battle the «Musical Ring» and for their joint tour. In the same time the album "Are we dance?" reached America and Europe ( for a note: the internet at that time was in the rudimentary state. Albums to America were delivered by airplanes ). From that moment “Russkij Razmer” actively gave foreign tours (in the period of 1997-2009 the group performed in America ).

The Song "Angel of the Day" and the video (dir. by A. Igudin and [A.Tikhonov]) again brought the group to the high places in top-charts.

Since 1999 the voice of Eleonora could be heard from the scene and albums. Alexander Borisov, the sound engineer, constantly workes with the group.

The albums "OUT" (featuring Rodion Chistyakov, the famous club musician in Saint Petersburg), "В.В.П. - Восходящие Воздушные Потоки" ( “V.V.P. - Ascending airflows" ) were issued...

The clips recorded at that time were : “Here is so!” (Soloha A.), "Love", "Energy De Lus" (club line special), "Normal evening» (Igudin A., [A.Tikhonov]), “I am”, "It was and passed» (“Fly studio”), "All that world" (R.Razmer.VideoMake!), “I feel groovy” (F.Bondarchuk`s studio), "That is all» (Vedernikov A.) In the Ice Palace in Saint Petersburg a large concert took place in spring 2004 with many stars of the modern Russian stage. This show was devoted to the 30th anniversary of the group “Russkij Razmer”.
