Tens or hundreds white KAMAZ trucks moved to Ukraine's border tell the news outlets. Some already report that some of those have already crossed the border. Where did they get so many white trucks? A day before photos surfaced posted by some soldier (allegedly) in his social network page how he was bragging that they painted white
400 military trucks. Some photos show the trucks with black registration plates which belong to the army, however what I read from news report that trucks don't have plates at all. If those have crossed the border or not, should be probably clear from the next news reports, meanwhile here are the photos of those.
Trips to such places were utterly secret and impossible in Soviet times. In modern times things might be changed however Aslan, the blogger, says that the security service of this place was following him all around and even when
he just took a shot of peaceful workers who were standing there, the security guy asked why he needed such a photo? Anyways, he got into the large navy boat building plant and here are his photos and report on it.
We have had a few photo stories about this place before, as it is pretty popular among bloggers and pretty close to Moscow and has a rather impressive collection of planes. Now, with the advent flying cameras and
drones, we can get views of the same places from a new angle. This time Denis, with his flying camera, went to Monino and thanks to Denis we can enjoy the planes from above, inside of this post.
In Moscow embassy of Vietnam a party for Russian army veterans was held. It seems to be an annual event when representatives of Vietnam invite Soviet soldiers to thank them for their help during the Vietnamese war. It's being held on fifth of
August, the day on which it is said that the first American plane was shot down in the Vietnam skies. Vitaliy, the blogger, has had a chance to get inside this event to see what was happening there. We have the photos inside.
A few days ago there was a NAVY Day, now on the second of August, there is an Airborne Troops Day. This day was famous in Soviet times and then in Modern Russia as the day when ex-airborne soldiers meet up
in the city, drink and celebrate it in their style. Fountains appear to be their main points of attraction and here is a report from a big golden fountain in Moscow during Airborne Day.
One guy has posted his army daily meals online, instagram style, so we can now see too what is being served to a soldier. I am not sure what regiment he comes from, is the food the same all over the army? But anyways, here
we see breakfast, lunch and dinner, and you tell me if you find it yummy or yucky, healthy or not, if you could live on it or prefer to remain hungry. What about the meals is strange to your non-Russian eye?
