7 Assorted Russia Part 5

Assorted Russia Part 5

Posted on December 15, 2010 by team


In Kunari village which is in the Sverdlovsk region, there stands a beautiful house. This piece of architectural art was built by one gifted blacksmith – Sergey Kirillov. Unfortunately he died 7 years ago, but those who remember him, say that his soul was exactly similar to this house. Now here lives his wife – Lidia.

Lidia and Sergey married in 1951, and moved to the old house of Sergey’s granddad. When the house began to become dilapidated, Sergey started to repair and restore it. The process continued till his death…

In 1999, Sergey Kirillov won the All-Russian Amateur Wooden Architecture Contest.

Lidia tries to keep the house in good condition, but it’s not easy for her – she is already 78 years old. She also never locks the doors – nobody have ever tried to rob such a beauty!

In Ulan-Ude everything is not so beautiful – on Tuesday, the 14th, workers were covering the skating-rink and water suddenly broke through the ice barrier and flooded the streets.

The temperature is extremely high now, so the streets became skating-rinks themselves very soon…

More than 70 workers and about ten tech units were involved into the settlement of the situation.

And now some funny and nostalgic stuff! Old-fashioned Pepsi-Cola was found in one Russian supermarket! Price – about $2! So cool that such bottle may be bought even today!

    The Wikileaks Organization may be witting or unwittingly in league with Britain, America, and NATO.

    It could be that America is giving false information of those in a foreign country and other places that refused to be puppetized by America.

    America thinks that anyone who cannot be puppetized might be a Taliban sympathizer, and if they can slander by means of Wikileaks, then let the Taliban handle it as it is divide and rule.

    One problem is if the rest of the friends and family of the suspected or slandered people in the Wikileaks leaked Cables may be even more encouraged not to truly help America.

    What I know of Anglo-America is that even though they appear to be incompetent, they know how to maximize their opportunities.

    In this world, most of us should believe approximately 50% of what we see, hear, and read in any year, and that would include Wikileaks.

    People like Sarkozy, Merkel, and other Puppets would be more than proud and happy to be ‘slandered’ by American Diplomats if it furthers the interests of their Anglo-American Masters.
