The Russian Old Believers

While not in alignment with the present time of the liturgical year, one of our readers sent in the following video which apparently shows the Russian Old Believers in their Cathedral in Moscow on Myrrhbearers Sunday (near Easter). The Old Believers recently came up in the comments, and are also a group one hears a bit about, though I have never seen much in the way of media related to them.

Perhaps some of our Eastern Christian brethren who are here might provide a bit of comment?
