These are photos of some industrial places in Russia from GoogleEarth.
Each one has a description.
Actually this one is without description. Some industrial thing.
Thanks, I laughed.
“Some military object right in the center of Moscow city” is the Red Square and the mausoleum of Lenin.
The “military object” is the Red Square itself.
Could you publish URLs for the maps.google.com for these places
Looks like photo 1 & 5 are exactly the same.
Damn, you just gave away all our military secrets! Now we have nothing to hide…
first photo is Baykonur space launch site.
In the photo about Severodvinsk city, appears a submarine class Typhoon, ( Tayfun is the fonetic denomination), it means “sea storm” in the asian zone.
Wow! Has been inaugurated one tag named ‘Omsk’… It just thrills me. I’ll have to keep on sending more links.
Well, as in Google Maps is not available Omsk, just let me advice to take a look on the boats stucked in the icy waters of Irtish river. Coordinates: 38°57’46.50″N / 95°16’5.48″W.
From Omsk with shivers.
Baikonur is in Kazakhstan, not in Russia
Google earth Rocks!!! great invention.

* What you call “Nuclear Wasteland near Ekaterinsburg” might actually be a firing position of S-300P anti-aircraft missiles.
Check out the 2 radars about 7 miles south – at the N edge of Beloyarskiy and E edge of Malyy istok. The entire area is jam-packed with military stuff.
* The Chemical weapons facility is the Schuchye Base. It is country’s biggest storage of VX, Sarin and other nerve agents.
Als check out the chemical weapons polygon in Shikhany
Cool pics! What a country. SO vast and fascinating. This yankee would love to return and see more.
All your base are belong to us! \,,/
nice pictures of the kuznetsov and the other (maybe kiev TAKR class) aircraft carrier.
This proves that they are not even trying to hide their military things.
thy finding a US aircraft carrier on google earth:-) they won’t let it.
The first picture is a top view of Buran launch site: http://englishrussia.com/?p=1362
It was also used for the top secret but unsuccessful soviet moonshot N-1 series rocket. just like the Saturn V rockets from USA.http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/N1_rocket
no it isnt fake. took me a while to find it but find it i did
FYI, Baikonur is not in Russia, it is in Kazakhstan.
rgzuri — you can definitely find US aircraft carriers on Google Earth. Easiest one is the USS Intrepid, which has been retired and now serves as a floating museum. It has a rather eclectic assortment on its flight deck, including an F-14 Tomcat (which was of course carrier-based) and an SR-71 (which was definitely never carrier based, and would drop like a stone off the end of the deck if it ever tried). There’s also a Concorde in the museum’s collection, but because of its size, it’s kept on an adjacent barge.
But there are active-duty carriers visible on Google Maps. Just check this out. Top in this image is CVN-75 (USS Harry S Truman), bottom is CVN-71 (USS Theodore Roosevelt). The one in the middle, undergoing overhauls at the time the pic was taken (and with her deck therefore covered with equipment) is CVN-65 — The Big E, USS Enterprise. Her buddies are Nimitz-class supercarriers; Enterprise, however, is a one-of-a-kind. She’s due to be deployed a couple more times yet before finally retiring.
Scroll around there. You’ll find more carriers.
My favorite commissioned US Navy vessel would have to be this one, though. She never sees any real action; she’s kept around for sentimental reasons. If you want to know what’s special about her, look at her shadow. She’s a ship from another era.
About the Baikonur images — maybe they can be replaced with images of Plesetsk Cosmodrome, which *is* in Russia?
I like it, Very good creativity
