4 Russian Forgotten Village of Finvan

Russian Forgotten Village of Finvan

After the USSR collapse there were a lot of military villages abandoned all over the country.  This post is about one of such. It finds itself on the vast unpopulated reals of Eastern Russian coast - the Pacific coast. It was created as a
fore post - the first point of meeting the enemy coming from the East, from the Ocean. In army plans they were ready to sacrifice this village but slow down the enemy's advance. Let's see what it's now all about over there:

Amber Colored Rush on the Freezing Cold Baltic Coast

  Can you guess what those people are doing and why they decided to submerge themselves in freezing cold weather into the storm on the Baltic coast? No they are not fishing, no, they are not surfers, and now they don't
pick up any sea food. The thing they hunt for is much more valuable, expensive and nicer looking. What's this and why they flock to the coast of Kaliningrad first days of the New Year? Let's see inside:

Police in Dagestan Celebrates New Year

  Here's a short video of Russian police officers in Dagestan, Russia celebrating the New Year by... shooting in the stars. They say its a pretty normal thing to express your feeling of excess happiness in some  Southern Russia
parts by shooting in the air, but it's first time I see the police  doing it too. Besides shooting they are also doing donuts on the Police car with full siren on. Pretty dope! Also there is one more video inside:

23 Ukrainian Submarine in Bad Condition

Ukrainian Submarine in Bad Condition

Even though Ukraine has sea ports, it had only two submarines in its Navy, and both are in  a condition that's not really nice. For example, this is the Ukrainian submarine "SS-330" which was built in
1970. In Soviet times, it served in the Pacific, but later it was transferred to Ukraine. Want to see its horrible state in detail? Then come inside, there are photos and also a video:

This is Kindergarten

Near Tver city, there is a small town with an old and pretty unique wooden house constructed
around the 19th century and now it's a kindergarten. There are some more photos inside.

Steam Over Water in Crimea These Days

These days in Crimea the weather is like this: the air is much colder than the water so the water steams all day long with this fog, making it
rather picturesque to walk around. So Georgi, a blogger, went along to the coast and took some photos which we can see here:

4 Russian Take on Pulp Fiction Scene

Russian Take on Pulp Fiction Scene

You might never think that things like this exist, but there is a whole Russian video made like Pulp Fiction parody, but instead America of 1990s it takes place in Nazi Germany with cult Russian spy "Shtirlitz" as a main hero. Here are two scenes
from this video - the beginning of Pulp Fiction movie, now with a Russian spy proclaiming "It's a special operation!" instead of "It's a robbery!", and the scene where they come to the hotel room. Pretty strange thing to watch!

1970s, Soviet Union, St. Petersburg, Hotel "Astoria". A piece of seductive Western world in the coldest big city in the world. And this was a special
"only for VIP and foreigners" advertisement to attract them into this forbidden world in Soviet country. Just a few photos to feel the times.

Moscow Streets Have Got those Crystals

Some streets of Moscow, the ones with luxury boutiques on them - have got those strange looking LED lights equipped, mirrored surface
colored crystals.  I am not sure what is their exact purpose besides decorative but here they are, just for you to take a look.

14 Surviving Town Karl Libnecht

Surviving Town Karl Libnecht

Russian blogger Sergey has visited this town called "Karl Libnecht" in Kursk region of Russia - the place where one of the most intense tank battles of World War 2 took place and brought the story from there. Here what he says: "Before this was a happy place. People were working, on weekends people were taking a rest and walking around,
children were smiling. Now on the streets of Karl Libnecht you'll rarely see good smile. Before there were two giant factories here - the machine building plant and sugar factory. Those were economic giants of federal level. But now this is how the machine building factory looks like (above on the photo)". Let's read on!
