7 Soviet People Ten Years after the War

Soviet People Ten Years after the War

These are color photos by Semyon Friedland, of Soviet people on the verge of the "New World": WW2 had already been over for ten years, so the famine and destruction was mostly
overcome and people were heading for some new, bright future as they expected it would be. At least that is how I feel they were thinking, posing for those photos.

3 Another Weird Car

Another Weird Car

  Talking about weird cars this is another one that has been sent our way. According to the story, these were built in Soviet times by the people working in what can be called the Park Rangers

Pave-work of Ukhta

It's a pretty long video of six minutes, I think watching just a couple of minutes might be enough to get an idea of what sorts of pavement you might meet there. As they say it costs a few millions per mile to pave the road and
this is the quality they get in Ukhta, Russia. I am not sure, maybe this is pretty normal and they just panic for nothing, but still it looks cool when a paved road can be disassembled just with a one man power.

12 400 White Trucks for Ukraine

400 White Trucks for Ukraine

    Tens or hundreds white KAMAZ trucks moved to Ukraine's border tell the news outlets. Some already report that some of those have already crossed the border. Where did they get so many white trucks? A day before photos surfaced posted by some soldier (allegedly) in his social network page how he was bragging that they painted white
400 military trucks. Some photos show the trucks with black registration plates which belong to the army, however what I read from news report that trucks don't have plates at all. If those have crossed the border or not, should be probably clear from the next news reports, meanwhile here are the photos of those.
