    Thank you for the photographs of life in Russia. I have never been to Russia and it isn’t likely that I ever will travel there, so these pictures give me a view into this huge country.
    May the people of Russia and of the USA always live at peace with each other.

    The teacher on the left is the beautiful and talented Klara Luchko, of “Cossacks of Kuban” fame. Ah, that would have been the teacher to have! So sorry that she passed away in 2005…

    These looks as fake as the pictures from North Korea.
    Propaganda at its finest.

      Fake pictures? So the university, the metro and other buildings are fake? Sorry, but a lot of those still standing and not to mention that people were actually happy back then.
