The snaking Moskva (or Moscow) river which runs through the Russian capital can be seen hundreds of feet below while the city’s business district can be seen in the distance.

The daredevil is later seen performing several parkour stunts, including jumping between roofs and leaping down from high walls and structures. 

Vovan has been practising his skills since he was just 16.

He said: ‘My friends and I went to the rooftop to take new photos from the roof during the sunset. 

‘I thought that a handstand would look spectacular. 

‘Friends discouraged me but after assessing all the risks I decided to do it.

‘I have been doing parkour for almost 15 years now. 

‘My body is always in good shape. It allows me to do things that many untrained people cannot do.

‘I love to challenge myself. I want to do a somersault on one of the stars of Stalin’s skyscrapers in Moscow.’

It comes after another Russian YouTuber almost plunged 25 floors to his death in July 2019 when he misjudged a jump.   

Sergey Shorokhov captured the hair-raising moment on a camera held in his mouth as he jumped from ledge to ledge on the roof of a high rise building.

As he is filming the reckless leap he can be heard singing in Russian before misjudging the distance and falling off, catching himself in a split second on some electrical wires.

Mr Shorokhov said the wires were shocking him and making it difficult to hold on, however he decided that was his only option. 

Thankfully his friend who is also on the rooftop rushed to his aid, pulling him to safety despite the danger that he could be shocked himself.  

Mr Shorokhov said: ‘I was in the arms of death and was born a second time.

‘I got scars on my stomach and fingers… An experience that will last a lifetime. Thank you to Zlat, for saving me.

‘The electric current tried to throw me down but world still need me I feel. 

‘My mission isn’t over yet. But I’m glad we met face-to-face, Death. Because happiness in me became much more.’
