    Hi, Denis Mosko!
    I read your message from 01.07.2013 20:47

    Russian hero - a man of tomorrow. He will do anything, but
    tomorrow.


    If we consider it as the food for grammar talks, I would say that
    (correct me if I am wrong):

    Probably, we need an article "a" before "Russian hero."

    You can use a dash instead of "is", but in the English punctuation this
    dash should be a long dash (--).

    After the comma and "but" we must have a complete sentence, therefore we
    should use a gaping comma to avoid the repetition of "he will do".
    The complete variant is this:

    A Russian hero -- a man of tomorrow. He will do anything, but he will do
    it tomorrow.

    A short variant with a gaping comma:

    A Russian hero -- a man of tomorrow. He will do anything, but, tomorrow.

    Bye, Denis!
