7 Russian Music 1987

Russian Music 1987

After 70 years of the iron curtain and a ban on any music that could sound "Western" to a Russian ear, gradually the first bands appeared trying to sound as Western as they could. Among lots of examples that really

6 Katyushas Fire

Katyushas Fire

Katyushas trucks firing the "Katyusha" rockets as seen by the driver of a Katyusha truck. As long that this happens in Ukraine one can notice a truck driver accepting the "Fire!" order via his regular
cell phone, probably it's just a call and not any encrypted medium so basically the owners of cell company can track (if they want) where are the next Katyushas are going to be fired.

The most epic underground fountain made up of hot water sprung on one of Smolensk city main square. Throwing tons of trash and stones as large as a building brick it found its way deep from inside of
the ground and high into the skies, sending the rocks and dirt all across the parking lot. We have here more photos and a video how it all started, luckily captured on a surveillance cam.

Visiting a Post Office

Whenever you decide to ship stuff from post office and bring your camera with you be ready for this (probably). Though looks like he didn't want to ship but rather solve some other questions, still the

5 Classified Eggs

Classified Eggs

I mean, eggs as classifieds. Recently a new trend appeared in some Russian cities to use the mass chicken egg production as a medium for a short text messages that can instantly reach thousands of people in the city overnight, with a message as clear as it was texted to them by someone. The reason for this is partially because all eggs in Russia used to be marked with
