9 UFO (Unknown Floating Object) In Moscow?

UFO (Unknown Floating Object) In Moscow?

Well, guys. A strange thing happened recently in Moscow. All the onlookers of this were literally shocked. Have you ever seen a car, floating along the river but not sinking for good two hours? I bet that you haven’t. So, I will tell you how such an odd story came about. When some pedestrians were walking along the quay
they saw some strange thing in the Moscow River, neither a car nor a boat. One would think: what the hell? And so did all the passers-by. Some of them even began to hesitate which number they should phone first, rescue service to deal with the car or an ambulance to rescue them from the mirage.

luxury cars in Kiev Ukraine
40 Kiev Cars

Kiev Cars

We’ve seen a lot of nice cars from Russia here already. It’s no secret there a lot of them: a British journalist once said that only in Moscow could he see several Lamborghinis or Ferraris stopped at one traffic light. So we wondered if this was a cultural thing.  First we looked to Kiev, the capital of Ukraine, another piece of the USSR that gained its independence not even twenty years ago. While the Ukraine has been less fortunate in terms
of natural resources, the stamp of Soviet heritage is strong and many Ukrainians even prefer Russian as their primary language.  So we deduced this could mean only one thing—there should be tons of luxury cars there too. Thus, we set on a brief examination of the streets of Kiev and it looks like we were right: yet another country with an average salary under 25 grand but with cars costing over $200,000.

15 Unwanted Atomiс Submarines

Unwanted Atomiс Submarines

The village of Porchinikha was made by soldiers as a base for atomic submarines. It’s the most northern point of the Kola Peninsula on the Barents Sea shore with the road. There are mistakes in maps, soviet cartographers put this road on the map instead of a corvine path. Drive on the off-road? I wouldn’t be that sure. I found this place long time ago, when
discovered a world of geocashing in 2004. One of the virtual caches buried here as well. It's amazing but since 2003 (the date of the cache burying) no one took it, everyone puzzled: "Is it a foot or a water path?" Everyone saw satellite photos and couldn’t get how it is possible at all to get here without taking off the ground.

visited this place at night and it looks even more haunted when made this way. Some say it reminds the movie theater of 1960s but if it was from the zombie movie.

Russian traffic in Moscow

18 Satellite Jam

Satellite Jam

This kind of traffic jams are pretty often in Moscow. The reason for them is often the top security measures that are needed by the governmental agencies to protect the important people while their ride. This time the jam got on the sat images in Russian analogue of google maps so it now can be seen from space too. Clicking on the image can reveal the map
itself so that one can scale it or move up/down to see the real size of the jam. It's interesting that the vip cars are not seen on those sat images. The reason for this that according to the same security regulations road should be closed far before the motorcade appears. And inside there are some shots "from the ground".

Russian eight wheels car

13 The Eight Wheeler

The Eight Wheeler

Eight wheelers could be a good solution for Russian terrain roads and you still can meet some of the concepts from the Soviet past on the roads. They had a flat bottom and the additional four wheels mounted higher than the first four ones so that in case you get stuck too deep then the new pair of axes get into play towing the car out the deep mud. For some reason those stayed
only in concept mode and like this one bare the old white-on-black plates, those give clue that it comes back from seventies or early eighties, but is still used. Guys collecting old Soviet transportation relics can pay a lot for one of those, even if it doesn't come from any popular brand but was made by some garage genius with his hands alone.
