russian police on the streets of russia
254 Russian Police

Russian Police

In Russia police is not respected by citizens. People simply doesn’t love policemen and often don’t go to police for the help. And police pays back – they often break the laws themselves and policemen behave in not proper way. There is a lot of police on the street of Russia, one of the reasons is high crime rate, another reason is possibly the belief of authorities that if they have a numerous police at their disposal they can prevent any civil unrest. Because the police is huge in personnel they often hire people without a proper education to serve in police, just like in 3rd world countries, people without high moral principles and understanding that if they serve
as policemen they should serve and protect. Often they do absolutely contrary things. There is a Russian joke: a young man went to work as a policeman, but has not received his salary for quite a long period of time – a few months, so the senior officer asks him – “Why didn’t you get your salary yet?” and the young man replied: “What? I am supposed to get a salary? I though if I got a police uniform and a gun I now can get funding myself”. Sometimes it happens right like in this joke, the only difference that such policemen don’t forget to get their salaries.   This couple is from Ukraine

34 Stalin’s Dreams of Moscow

Stalin’s Dreams of Moscow

Comrade Stalin wanted to turn Moscow city into an 8th Wonder of the World, thus he was planning on constructing some buildings that would look tremendous. Most of his dreams have not come true, Moscow hasn’t become
a World’s Wonder and the buildings were left just on paper, probably because of WW2 was taking place and then the country was recovering from its consequences. Still the designs are fun to look at:

4 Many Other Ways to Use Vodka

Many Other Ways to Use Vodka

If all the people in Russia someday would stop drinking, there would be abundant supplies of vodka left over. What can be done with it? Here are a few everyday life tips for your vodka in case you stopped drinking but a strategic reserve of your vodka is still left in your cellar. 1. If you soak a
plaster or a bandage with vodka you can remove it from your body smoothly and painlessly. 2. You can clean your faucets with vodka. Just splash some vodka on a faucet covered with some stain and after a few minutes you can wipe it with a dry cloth – the stain will be gone.

8 Fake Mineral Water

Fake Mineral Water

I knew that there happen to be some factories in countries like India or China which make fake soft drinks, I knew that there are in Russia such factories also, I knew that they ship their ready made production to
shops and sell like legit one, but what was a surprise for me is when a lady makes fake mineral water (puts on labels) right in the middle of the big shopping mall in Ukraine (former USSR). Take a look:
russian extreme christians
62 Christians Tore Madonna Apart

Christians Tore Madonna Apart

There is a very funny sect of extreme Christians in Russia. They look really cool. They became popular for breaking up a Moscow gay parade this year, together with some radical Orthodox Christian priests.   At that time gay parade was canceled. That included a public speech of Moscow mayor who said something like “Moscow and Russia are not that liberal to allow this to happen”. You can imagine how far Moscow and Russia are liberal after that. Now, from
their point of view, which doesn’t differ from a point of a Russian Orthodox Church officials, Madonna shouldn’t have a concert in September, 2006 in Moscow. She simply doesn’t have any right for that, because from their point of view she is totally evil pop star. They wear black cloths which is a wild mix of German Nazi military cloths with some Russian military elements and a lot of Christian symbolics and items.

an abandoned city in russia
186 An Abandoned City

An Abandoned City

Here is a little photo-session of an abandoned city. When the Soviet Union collapsed, government didn’t have much funds to support some small cities around strategically import objects. People of these cities were left all by themselves. Nobody could support them because any communication with this places terminated after the army decided that they now don’t have money to support those objects. People had to leave their places and move. Some were lucky to find their place under a sun of the Army of new Russian Federation, some less
fortunate had to leave such places without any hope to find a new home, just because the shops stopped working, water stopped coming out of the facet and nobody cared about them any more. It has been said that even president Putin was thinking to retire from KGB in 1990 and go to work as a taxi driver. Many people are now probably express great sorrow that he changed his mind at that time. Ok, so here are the photos: Just imagine how magnificient those buildings were before abandoned.
