The graffiti in Ekaterinburg is uncommonly elaborate! This one is bizarre – it’s a copy of the first two paragraphs of the Russian Wikipedia article on “Astronomical object”.

"Celestial body - a material object, naturally formed in the outer space. By the celestial bodies can be included comets, planets, meteors, asteroids, stars, and so on. ..."
“Celestial body – a material object, naturally formed in outer space. By the celestial bodies can be included comets, planets, meteors, asteroids, stars, and so on. …”

Но где-то снова: “Серый лед…”
Стучит, стучит в оконце…
Он продолжает свой полёт.
И вновь восходит солнце!
[According to Google Translate:]
But somewhere again, “Grey ice …”
Knocking, knocking in the window …
He continues his flight.
Once again, the sun rises!

Катечка! Я люблю тебя больше жизни, ты единственая для меня в этом мире. Ты самая прекрасная, добрая, милая. Будь со мной. Катрина я бы продам душу чтобы провесте жизни с тобой. Ничто не сравнится с прикосновением твоих губ. Я люблю тебя! Я люблю тебя!
[Kitty! I love you more than life, you are the only one for me in this world. You are the most beautiful, good, sweet. Be with me. Katrina, I would sell my soul to spend my life with you. Nothing compares to the touch of your lips. I love you! I love you!]

Just when you thought it was weird enough, there is a giant keyboard.
