Old photos featuring two honorable professions: doctors and policemen.

Some of them you might have seen on ER but surely not all of them in one collection.

    Funny the guy holds polish shoes “POLBUT”.

    They always stole all production from Polan.

    • -Zlodey- says:

      We don`t care about Poland at all, we rich enough to forget about Poland before and now.
      But we noticed Poland existence after attacks of polish nationalists on our football fans in Poland.

    There, in Russia, is no more such skilled doctors (I must notice: medical threatment in USSR are completely free)and fair cops.
    Old ones became old, retired, died.
    New ones are money hungry takers. New doctors dont know well how to made treatment in right way (many bought their medical degrees), they asking money for it.
    New cops doing their work bad, or, what is most bad, cooperate with bandits and helping them.
    Thanks to “democracy” and “freedom” for this.

      hm interesting to know abt democracy. seems like not all of communism is bad eh?

      • -Zlodey- says:

        World have many colors, not just white and black.
        “Communism” in USSR are not hell on earth, but modern world`s “democracy” are not heaven for sure.

    • jeffrey pigden says:

      Russia has ALWAYS had greedy, self-serving pigs. Do you think the Czar held on to power for the good of the people? the Whites? the Reds? Stalin? The modern lower and middle class Russian sees no future. They strive to get all they can before it all ends!

      • -Zlodey- says:

        Ok, tell me for what helding power all gouverments of world`s strongest countries? For your good? Don`t make me laugh. And that “middle class” mentioned by you – they are exacly that greedy self-serving pigs, who trying to get all they can and run to the West with the money. Traitors, who fear something like the new revolution.

    • OLUT says:

      Medicine is one facet Russia did not need to adopt from the American system. But it’s not the fault of freedom or democracy. Most modern, first-world nations have the universal, taxpayer-paid “free” health care. It’s my hope Russia goes back to a health system that values life over money.

  3. Anonumous Coward says:

    Where are the police weapons?

    • -Zlodey- says:

      They not always carry any gun, not all of soviet cops even need them.
      The level of crime in 1970`s-1980`s here are very low.
      Maximum what soviet cops may carry with them – Makarov pistol.

    • pks says:

      Note that Soviet cops, as a rule, did not carry any guns; they did not even carry nightsticks and handcuffs. In fact, there were no nightsticks at all.

      • -Zlodey- says:

        They do have them in fact, these photosh just dont have road patrols in work with traffic.
        But in that time, in USSR, not so much cars on roads, so cops rarely used nightsticks and handcuffs – only when traffic light broke somewhere.

  4. CZenda says:

    Since when is being a cop “a honorable profession”?

    • -Zlodey- says:

      You are right, no one love people, who make you to follow the Law and Order.
      But soviet childrens have been learned in school, that be a cop (militiant, thats more correct) – a honorable profession. They parens not agree with that, especially, when some of them love to drunk and got caught by cops and transfered to sobering-up station.

  5. Ivan the American says:

    Just because you have freedom doesn’t mean you know what to do with it. Enslaved souls will remain enslaved.

  6. Kishinev says:

    When did the Soviet cops and military get those huge ass peaked caps? I don’t see them here, so I’m guessing these pictures are from the mid- to late 1970s. I’m no expert on this subject, but very curious about this.

    • -Zlodey- says:

      Yes, that stupid airfield-size caps our cops and military got in 1990`s.
      Some stupid military generals, who never have seen real combat, made such new “fashion” popular.
      Any our old uniform have normal size caps.

  7. 1934NFA says:

    We have a similar situation here in the US-ALL of the BEST COPS & DOCTORS are ON TV!!!

  8. Anton says:

    What do you mean ‘thanks to “democracy” and “freedom” for this’? Because I’ve never seen any of these things in Russia.

    • -Zlodey- says:

      All of this done in the name of that two words.
      And I`m sure, you will not see democracy and freedom, as you maybe imagined them, anywhere else. Maybe only in mythical elven forest.

  9. jeffrey pigden says:

    A doctor in a chef’s hat doesn’t inspire confidence!

  10. BHC says:

    Why do the cars and some badges say “GAI” ? Are they GAY?

  11. Colin says:

    I wonder where these people are now, and how they fared after the end of the Soviet Union.

  12. (r)evolutionist says:

    I need a Soviet doctor. My back hurts due to be being exploited through overwork under a cruel, indifferent, ultra-wealthy, amoral, tax-dodging, reality-television watching capitalist overlord/industrialist.

    • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

      Do you never get tired of all the political/ideological lecturing? :D

      • (r)evolutionist says:

        Oh man, I’m only joking or being ironic the majority of the time yet some people (not you) take things deadly serious and start with the name calling. I know capitalism has won but do I have to march lockstep with all the other sheep? I’m not better but I don’t consider myself to be Satan, either. But since the majority here prefer to be docile and pliable (and subservient) to the “majority” I’ll cease and desist. CZenda and Testicules are fervently anti-communist but they never resorted to personal attacks. They are worthy debaters. Sorry if I was too much an ideologue for you. I just never read another radical on this post who liked to stir things without attacking personally. But I get it (your question).

        • (r)evolutionist says:

          Guess I should’ve said: “I need a Soviet psychiatrist.”

          • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

            Sorry if you misunderstood my comment (at first). I was just merely asking whether you ever get tired of fighting a losing battle? It’s pretty obvious that some people have their minds set on something.

            Take me for example. I was born in the Soviet Union, raised in the Soviet Union, by Soviet (now Russian) parents. I’ve lived here for the vast majority of my life. So its’ pretty obvious that someone who has probably never been to Russia, let alone been in the old USSR, would have a far superior knowledge about life over here than I ever could.

            • (r)evolutionist says:

              Thanks for the info. I’ll believe till my dying day Socialism is the most equitable, logical, just, scientific, humane system ever devised by humankind. I think Russia would have a good future if they modified their current system to a socialist model similar to the Scandinavian model. The U.S. population has been misled (by the wealthy) for so long it will never happen here. I think Americans fear socialism not because of MORE Government control, but because under socialism they can NEVER become rich! … Anyway, I’ll escape by reading Bakunin, Gorky, Bogdanov (and others).

              • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

                I’m no communist, and I don’t agree with most of it, but I would prefer it to the Yeltsin s “capitalism” of the 90’s anyday.

        • vorontsevich (f/k/a ayaa) says:

          Welcome to my world, buddy.

    1975-1985 in USSR: golden age of humanity

    • -Zlodey- says:

      USSR has many problems, but they looks not so important today.
      I must say, before there more good things than bad.
      I hope we will rebuild our country again someday.

      • Slaven says:

        USSR was a country on the right path for the workers and 99% of the population of the country. It had a lot to improve on but it was on the right way.

        It was gorbachev and his belazheva gang that ruined and sabotaged it on purpose in order to gain wealth in the short time. If you people loved USSR you shouldve executed them on the first available opportunity after you saw where everything is going.

  14. tatra_tiger says:

    yeah, yeah – russian police. we know…..

  15. -Zlodey- says:
