Meanwhile in the Army

We try to keep updated you what's going on in the
army these days, so here is another short update:

4 Looks Like Those Work

Looks Like Those Work

It looks like this strange, home-made armor works. At least from looking at these photos of an Ukrainian armored vehicle after the battle. You can clearly see that
damage occurred to the metal bars but not to the vehicle itself and it looks like he successfully left the battlefield. Some more photos are inside.

Keep Calm and Carry On

    After watching this video of oil rig crashing I got a feeling I now understand the meaning of "Keep Calm
and Carry On". This is a short video just twenty seconds, but be sure you watch till end it has a plot twist.

8 People Still Live Here

People Still Live Here

Sevastopol, Crimea, 2014. You might not believe it, but people still live in these houses. That's downtown Sevastopol and
Asaratov visited this place to take some photos as he was both shocked and impressed. Wanna see what's inside? Welcome here:

32 Russian Guy Thinks He is an American Marine

Russian Guy Thinks He is an American Marine

Meet Stepan. He calls himself Stepan Dallas Walker. Here on the photo he is posing with an American flag near the Hermitage of St. Peterburg. People on background probably don't understand what's going on. But we do - he claims he is an American patriot (though he is
not even a citizen) and especially likes the Marines Corps. So he owns full Marine camp, an American flag, rifle replicas and a lot of other things that you can see inside. Also he has a friend who seems to be sharing his passion. More inside:
17 Donetsk Today

Donetsk Today

  Do you want to know what's going on in Donetsk today? If you still don't know Donetsk is a center point of all the last day events in Ukraine, and this is the main city square of the city where the people who control Donetsk these
days decided (I quote the source) "to celebrate the anniversary of new state creation with this sort of things". Look how people around watching this. Video is inside, its short but you may be like "What???". See it here:
13 Abandoned Military Installations from Crimea and More

Abandoned Military Installations from Crimea and More

  One of our readers has travelled around the ex-Soviet places to visit abandoned buildings, sites, etc. Here what he has to show and tell us: Traveling through the east, you often come across structures which stand as eerie
monuments to past times and relics from the cold war. Here is a selection of pictures I have taken on my travels throughout the east during the last few years. See inside for more. Military Airfield. Krim, Ukraine

13 A Bridge Strength Test: 25 Loaded Kamaz Trucks

A Bridge Strength Test: 25 Loaded Kamaz Trucks

So this is how they test newly built bridges in Russia nowadays. A pack of KAMAZ tip trucks loaded with sand stand side by side, very close to each other. Each truck weighs 25 tons, so this pack grosses at more than six hundred tons tightly packed into one spot. Then this bunch of weight on wheels is moved to another part of the bridge, measurements are taken, then the process is repeated again and again. So the photographer nicknamed Wizarden was
watching for the whole morning to see how six hundred tons of sand were moved, waiting to see if the bridge would collapse. The spoiler - it didn't collapse. Want more of a spoiler? Here: do you know where the top managers of the contractor who built the bridge spent their time during this KAMAZ test? You won't believe it, but they were loaded into a small boat and went under the bridge (probably praying). See more here:

29 Ten Jobs Women in Russia Cannot Work At

Ten Jobs Women in Russia Cannot Work At

  You might not have known, but there are professions in Russia that women are forbidden to take by law. Like, there is a law that says "some professions are too dangerous for women to take on, so this is the list of those positions where the female is forbidden to be employed." And this list takes in over 350 positions, which is pretty impressive. I am not sure if any feminist organizations have ever tried to argue this or if they fully
realize that those positions are not very much wanted by any woman. However, besides really dangerous occupations, this list features some that you might be amazed at, like "Why don't they allow a woman to be a bus driver?" Some of them are ridiculous, some are reasonable. Well, I am getting a bit ahead of myself here, let's see a list of ten strange positions prohibited for women to join by law in Russia:

8 Abandoned Sulfuric Acid Factory and a Lesson in Chemistry

Abandoned Sulfuric Acid Factory and a Lesson in Chemistry

A blogger calling himself Armahema has made an attempt to visit a recently abandoned factory which was making a highly corrosive tincture we know now by the name Sulfuric Acid. It looks like he got out of this location pretty safely and so we can see
what he encountered inside. Spoiler: after reading this post you should have a basic understanding on how sulfuric acid is being made. Also there is a lot of sulphur inside. You are welcome to view the photos and read the story:
