Mi-24, The Flying Crocodile

This is Russian helicopter MI-24, but these particular are from Polish army. Poland during Soviet era was buying a lot of weapons from Soviet Union. In Russia pilots call it “The Crocodile” because some of it’s form
resemble some reptile according to their point of view. So this Polish pilots decided to go further and drew reptile eyes on their helicopters, so now the crocodile analogy can be seen even more precisely.

Novorosiysk, Russia

The climate in Russia is cold, it's a well known fact, but how cold is it? A lot of people visit Black Sea in summer because it's the warmest place in Russia, just across the sea lies Turkey, the
pretty southern country. And this photo is taken in one of the Black Sea ports in winter. So the most southern part of Russia is just warm only if to compare to the rest part of Russia.

Vodka And Yoga

It has been said that doing yoga is extremely helpful for the body health. One of the reasons for this is that yoga poses are very natural body positions and our body enjoys being in such a position, but the main problem to get this enjoyment feeling is to relief all the stress and
tension in our muscles. From the other side it’s known that vodka relaxes person to its maximum, and according to yoga one who relaxed can easily make complicated yoga exercises. This guy proves that our body is OK with yoga. Update: Some more asanas:

Black Sea Tornado

Tornados can happen even in such cold climate countries like Ex-USSR part Ukraine. This shots are made on Crimea peninsula, most population of which prefer to speak Russian language to Ukrainian and demand from their local goverment to make Russian as their state
language. The most interesting thing about this tornado that the Black Sea is a small sea that is not connected directly to any ocean - so it's like tornado in a lake so to say. The city on photos is Sevastopol. No damage were caused to it.

Afghanistan, 1983

What’s going now in Afghanistan is not for the first time. 27 years ago Russian army entered Afghanistan to help the Afghani president protect his power against the Islamic forces terrorizing the country. Russian army stayed there 9 years and 1 months. It was opposed by troops lead by Usama Bin Laden who was that time officially sponsored by USA, in order to prevent a victory of USSR there and not allowing Soviet Union to establish there another regime supported by communists. During these 9 years more than 14,000 Russian soldiers were killed, half thousand people were captured by the opposing Afghani forces. Practically all of them were forced to turn into Islam. And more than 50,000 Russian soldiers were wounded there and 10,000 of them continued their life as
disabled as a result of the war. But what can be most interesting is that just a few months after the Soviet troops left Afghanistan the radical Islamic movement took over the country again and was just becoming stronger and stronger until the USA troops came into a play. Now, when USA military presence is not high there it has been heard that only center of the country is being controlled by “democratically chosen president”, all the distant regions are again under the rule of radical Islamists. So probably there is no way on turning this country to Western system of good and bad. On these photos you can see Russian soldiers together with Afghani ones, and some scenes from everyday life in 1983.
