4 Russian Diorama of Exploding Truck

Russian Diorama of Exploding Truck

A Russian guy has built a diorama of a Russian truck exploding on a mine or hit by an artillery shell during the famous Siege of Leningrad, when the huge Russian city was blocked by Nazis for years and people were starving, especially in winter, with no
heating, nothing. And the only way to get supplies in was by trucks travelling on the ice road through the local great lake. They were constantly bombed by fascists and this is a sample of that moment, an explosion caught by an artist.

Russian City Voronezh in 1980s

A few photos of the Russian city of Voronezh in the early 1980s. It's churches mainly. Looks like many objects were in a state of despair, though the whole feel which I get
from the photos is like the empire is still alive and people are not aware of what is going to come in the next ten or so years. Pretty much atmospheric photos!

Russian Newest Jet T-50 or PAK FA

This Russian jet is the newest and most advanced jet Russian engineers have ever produced. There are not too many photos of it on the Internet yet, due to previous security and secrecy and also because not many of them have
been produced. But since it was recently participating in the MAKS-2015 air show new photo sets have started appearing. Like this one from Sergei. Thanks to him we can see this marvellous bird in more detail.

Jewish People Coming to Ukraine to Celebrate New Year

In some branch of the Jewish religion there is a tradition to come to the Ukrainian town of Uman to celebrate the New Year. So each year tens of thousands of the believers arrive. They probably even did it during Soviet times, when the

Forgotten Town of Gudym

Gudym is a lost town on Chukotka Russia. Chukotka is a peninsula close to Alaska, just 90 km across the Bering straight from the USA. There are not many points of interest on Chukotka, says Evgenij, the photographer, and many people come to Chukotka to see
the abandoned Soviet town of Gudym. There are already multiple urban legends about the town and its vast underground buildings.  Russian people often get the feeling of loss of greatness of Soviet Times. Let's see what Gudym is all about.
