24 One Day In Grozny

One Day In Grozny

Posted on May 2, 2011 by team

These photos show only a tiny part of what was happening in Grozny at the time of armed conflicts. But local people do not live in the past. They actively construct new houses. Here and there you can see unique architectural landmarks. People communicate openly with each other, and youngsters freely walk down the streets.

Some pictures of the city itself. One of its numerous mosques.

The memorial to the journalists suffered for the freedom of speech. “Instead of you your words have stayed…”

The floral clock. The date is changed daily. The hands are set in motion every minute.

It’s mainly women who improve flower beds and clean streets in Grozny. Islam obliges them to cover their heads, and they strictly follow this rule.

A local market. Products to every taste.

This guy on a bike delivers fresh bread.

Dozens of umbrellas are spread over the stalls before the rain.

    Equal rights under Socialism. Slavery and submission under theocracy. Some progress.
    And the obscene wealth in the mosques: looks like Liberace decorated them.
