14 Music Video From Sixties

Music Video From Sixties

This is a Soviet Era Music video about an American guy who liked Beatles and Rolling Stones, came to USSR and spent time singing with Soviet brothers, but then got a letter from USA ordering him to return to USA sign to Army and depart to Vietnam War. So he did and then got killed. Some sort of a tradegy but look how does
they sing! By the way during the Soviet Era the state had a grip on all the music bands. You couldn't start a band without getting an approval from a special comittee, and if you were planning to play some rock'n'roll you never got the approval. So this was a band with a license from a state.

Video of a Floodlight Tower Blasted in St. Petersburg

This is the video of how the floodlight tower was blown up on the stadium in St. Petersburg, Russia. It was devastated on purpose, as a step on the way to removing the old
stadium before the new one would be built. Still it’s impressive how a huge construction is falling down right on the stadium field, slowly and gracefully.

381 Lost City of Chernobyl

Lost City of Chernobyl

"In matters nuclear one thing is certain: there is no protection in an iron curtain." A letter in The Times May 3rd, 1986. On the 26th of April 1986 shortly after midnight, to be precise, at 1:23 GMT, there occurred near the Ukrainian town of Chornobyl a tremendous explosion at a huge nuclear power plant, followed by a gradual meltdown of the reactor No. 4. Chornobyl is situated 80 miles north-west of Kiev, the ancient capital of Ukraine and the Soviet Union's third largest city. It was by far the worst nuclear reactor accident ever, which immediately sent a radioactive cloud across neighbouring Byelorussia, Poland and the Baltic Republics towards Scandinavia. Within days, borne by shifting winds, radioactive mists wafted beyond Soviet borders and spread across most of Europe causing anxiety, apprehension and fear. The most badly affected
were the Republics of Ukraine and Byelorussia. They suffered large scale involuntary irradiation, due to extensive secrecy, and great economic damage. Furthermore the contaminated air mass passed over large areas of Poland and also over parts of Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Yugoslavia and a number of West European countries. Till now the land is abandoned, thousands of houses, thousands acres of the land, everything is now stays almost the same as it was 20 years ago. Nowadays there guided tours are being conducted to this area. These photos are made by Alexandr Vikulov, [email protected] while participating in such a trip. This Soviet Era sign indicates the entrance to Chernobyl county. Many of the things there stand unchanged since Soviet union times.

Madonna Could be Bombed

Today, 12th of September, 2006 in Moscow is going to be a great show by Madonna. It has been said before that Madonna was very scared of her trip to Russia because she was threatened by anonymous people of Russian origin, demanding her to cancel the show, that’s why she wanted the security measures of the show to be extra high class ones. Two girls, two journalists of some Russian newspaper decided to check those
extra measures. They decided to make a fake alarm clock bomb and take it inside the show as much closer to the main arena as possible. They had to pass five security checks.   First they have got a big box and an alarm clock that they put inside. They made two of such fakes, put them in their bags and came to the “Luzhniki” concert hall – a big covered stadium in Moscow.
