20 Story of One Photo 5

Story of One Photo 5

Here we have one more photo for the "story of one photo" post. As you might already recognized one lady here is the ex-first lady of America, the wife of the assassinated president Kennedy, Jacqueline Kennedy, later married to Greek shipping tycoon Onassis. But who is the lady on the right? It can be clear seen that it is some Russia woman, in some dress many Russian older women still are wearing nowadays when doing their household chores etc. So maybe that's a meeting of the US First Lady with some working class Russian women delegation? The answer is wrong. This is not a worker lady, but a First Lady too, the Soviet First Lady of that times, Mrs. Kruschev the wife of the Soviet leader Kruschev remarkable for his
speech in the UN when he took of one of his shoes and smashed it in the tribune in order to make his speech sound more expressive, if it was not enough yet. He was at power during the Caribbean crisis also. Then looking on those two it can be seen what was the real difference between two lifestyles of the two countries at that times. It's hard to say how much has been changed during the times of the Communism fall and then twenty years of current Russia as we know it. It's clear that nowadays the Russian First Lady would never wear something like this, at least when going public, but it's totally not clear if that's good sign or bad sign.

Frost and boiling water effect

Powerful burst main has recently happened in St. Petersburg near the metro station Bolsheviks’ prospect. Some cars were flooded over bumpers, people had to wait for an hour till they were saved. The visibility was so insignificant that it was almost impossible to see
even your hands. Some passers-by suffered burns, about fifteen people suffered injuries and about four were hospitalized on the gate. People simply couldn’t see where they went. Besides, clothes got wet through and people were in freezing temperatures.
