5 When a Tank Hits a Wall

When a Tank Hits a Wall

During a recent tank drill by the Russian army one of the T-72B3 "Burevestnik" got into an accident that caused it to hit a concrete or brick wall at full speed. One might imagine that the tank, with all its mass, going at high speed, should crush the wall, however, this probably
only happens in movies. In reality the wall has damaged the tank a lot, in fact the armored plates cracked in multiple places baring the inner parts of the tank. The photo above shows the tank after the hit, there are a few more photos of the details inside:

5 Giant Underground Fridge in Samara Russia

Giant Underground Fridge in Samara Russia

Sergey has visited a huge underground structure in the Russian city of Samara. This refrigerator can hold up to two hundred railway cars of food! The Soviet Union liked to build big, and this is one of the examples of such construction. Also, from outside you would never, ever suspect that there is something that huge below this regular red brick building in the middle of the city. Soviet authorities were keeping the strategic surplus of food here for
Samara city. Samara has a population of one million citizens and in case of a disaster they need lots of food, so they built this huge storage locker and placed it deep underground under a regular house so that the enemy would not suspect it and would not bomb it. Even many of the people who live here don't suspect that such a huge structure is hidden underground, and thanks to Sergey we can see it too now! Welcome inside.
1 One Crazy Robber

One Crazy Robber

This jewelery shop robber was so funny that police investigators called him "crazy one". Here is why - he tried to avoid cameras and security sensors by crouching all the time on the floor and putting a masking comforter
blanket on his back, using a fishing pole to fetch the jewelery boxes from the shelves. This is really funny, take a look just a short under one minute video won't leave you without a smile on your face!
7 No Justice for Migrant Workers

No Justice for Migrant Workers

On this video footage some Russian kids treat immigrant workers from Southern ex Soviet republics as low as they can. "Where are you from? Where were you born? In Tajikistan? Then this is your present from Russia (slaps in a face)". The kid is really young, probably
ten or twelve old but bullies a whole bunch of migrant workers, who often treated as slaves as they don't have necessary papers to work and value their income too much to go to police. And that's not only trouble for migrant workers in Russia:

Three Russian Guys Travel Across Country in an Old Soviet Car

Three Russian guys decided to go on an unusual adventure - travel across Russia in an old Soviet car. Basically, this car was always treated as a parody of a normal car and was always ridiculed in funny stories, etc. It only has forty
horsepower and the car's basic appearance stayed the same from the 1960's until the 1990's when they stopped producing them in Ukraine. However it didn't stop them from taking one of the cars for a journey. So here are some pics.

7 Hidden Russian Road Cams

Hidden Russian Road Cams

Russian road police used to use their patrol cars to catch drivers speeding on the highways. However as their equipment advanced in sophistication and ability, their masquerading skills became more advanced, too. Now they place the autonomous cameras capable of taking a photo of a speeding car in totally random places across the highway's shoulders, then they park a few miles down the road and get the
signals and photos from the cameras onto their laptop so they just stop the approaching cars that have been speeding and fine them. Each time they place the camera in random spot so that it can't be tracked or its position predicted. Here are a few examples. The first one shows how the roadside merchant helps the police to hide their cam amongst their stack of fruit and veggies.
