Some of us still do not believe that people may turn into animals. But it seems they may, and faster they you
think. These ones seem to be close to it. But, unfortunately, it cannot be called "evolution" in this case.
These guys are standing in the dark, at seven o'clock in the morning. They are all recruits. Soon they will have to farewell with their parents, relatives, friends,
girlfriends and civilian life. Some of them will serve one year, others a year and a half. We are going to show you now what the Belorussian army begins with.
This might seem an unusual side of the war. The person who collected these photos wanted to represent the war not as drama but as everyday life with moments of
calmness and humanity. The result is not so good, though. There was no much humanity, calmness was anxious. Photos of destruction and grief are not included.
The Dagestani city called Derbent is the most ancient in Russia: historians claim it is 5000 years old. True or not is a moot point, but the city is really very, very old. Wiki says
that the modern city was founded in 438 AD while it got the status of a Russian city not so long ago - in 1840. The historical part of the city is worth seeing indeed.
RIA NOVOSTI/Alexander Kondratyuk The first frosts have come to the village Redutovo of the Chelyabinsk region. Traditionally
they start slaughtering geese on this time each year. They behead birds, pluck them and procure meat for winter.
Little kids are so hard to keep track of! It's enough to turn away for a second
when something terrible may happen! Keep an eye on your precious children!
When the first subcultures appeared in the USSR the government simply considered those youngsters to be crazy. But when the movement went out of control
it was already too late. Metallists, rockers, punks, rappers, bikers, etc. came out to the streets of the already crumbling Soviet society.
What you see on this picture is a whole industrial city made from oil platforms at the banks of Azerbaijan in the 1950s. The USSR was striving for world supremacy in industry, many decisions were made
hastily. Eventually they ran out of the oil and left the place. But the metal platform will stand there for many years more till it finally collapses under the impact of the wind and salty water.
After spending 127 days in the orbit of our planet three cosmonauts are finally back from the ISS. Among them are a Russian cosmonaut
Yuri Malenchenko, Sunita Williams from America, Akihiko Hoshide from Japan. They all successfully landed in the Kazakh steppe.
Minerals is what South Ural is rich in. In the 1930s they made a lot of open pits in the Chelyabinsk region of Russia. The most famous of them is the Korkinsky one. But others
deserve some attention too. For example, the Krasnogorsk mine is quite impressive. There is an artificial pond in its bottom which looks like a small mountain lake.
