9 Russian City Where Submarines are Built

Russian City Where Submarines are Built

Talking about the submarines, here are a few photos from Russian cities where they are being built. Slava, the photographer (by the way I like his work very much, and find almost each of his series very
attractive - so we feature him here often) has travelled there and now we can see the city too. It's the biggest shipbuilding docks in Russia, and nuclear u-boats are built there too. Let's see!

Over Twenty Bank ATMs Were Lately Blown Up in Russia to Get Cash

      What you see on this picture and on the other pictures inside of this post is the story that is being unfolded now in Russia (and Ukraine). Gangs  use new tactics to get money from the ATMs - they blow them up terrorizing the population and neighbors with the loud full scale

1 Industrial Splendour: Fifth Power Unit of the Chernobyl NPP

Industrial Splendour: Fifth Power Unit of the Chernobyl NPP

This must be the most ambiguous place in the Chernobyl Exclusion Zone. On the one hand it's a breathtaking industrial beauty, on the other hand it's a symbol of the time that stopped forever. Finally, it's
more evidence of the biggest industrial disaster, portrayal of disappointed hopes and wreckage of brilliant ideas. All these aspects are reflected by this unfinished fifth power unit of the Chernobyl power plant.

rush to the surface, saving the crew (or a part of the crew) and letting the big boat go sinking further down? If you didn't know that, we have the photos from a recent testing of this thing. Let's see..

16 A Story of one Soldier Who Was Sent to Cut Woods

A Story of one Soldier Who Was Sent to Cut Woods

There was one soldier who was serving his conscription and it was almost finished. However, before he was discharged from the service he had to perform just one final task. There was a sort of tradition by Soviet commanders to give their soldiers a difficult final task before they wave "good bye" and leave. So in the case of this particular soldier the task

So there was a plot in the forest, a future high voltage power line lane that needed to be cleared, like the one on the picture above. That was a task of at least one month of pretty heavy labor. However...

31 Faces Before and After Russian Airborne Service

Faces Before and After Russian Airborne Service

We already compared some people's faces yesterday, but here is something different. A Russian photographer Yuri, has taken photos of eleven Russian guys that served in one of the hardest places to serve - in the Russian airborne forces. The first photo was taken during their first days in the army and the second is close to
the completion of their service. Airbornes jump from planes, go through walls of fire, participate in fights, etc, etc. More than that, Airborne forces are known for their harsh relationships between the soldiers themselves, especially new ones and the more experienced ones. So let's see if we can spot any differences?
