    I really liked the one before the last photo, “Mother sends son to Chechnya”. The way she’s holding the gun reminded me of the time in my childhood when my brother finished his violin classes and my mom held his violin while he was putting on the coat.

    OMG the reality of life in Russia is soo depressing. Why dont they give some of their gas revenue to those poor suffering Russians? :(

    • Moras says:

      The same reason why they don’t give more to the poor or the homeless in America or anywhere else for that matter.

    I am always intrigued by photojournalist talents to capture an instant of reality almost by instinct. Their story telling abilities are truly surprising, but I do wonder how much thought goes into selecting and captioning the photographs in post-production.

    If you are on anassignment to degrade & condemn a nation / race / people etc., it is not diffuclt at all to find more devastating scenes in any country, Russia or any place in Europe oor USA. I have seen Russia, lived in Russia and know the truth much better than those who indulge in such propaganda. I thought they would stop after finishing USSR off but was surprised to see such things being continued even today. I have visited and lived in many parts of both Western & Eastern Europe and still would have vouched for a life in Moscow of USSR. And mind it, I am an anti Communist though!

  23. What happened is that I encountered this web site by chance while searching my favorite topic on Google. Great information and I love the theme! I will be back in a day or two.
    Thanks for a great site.
