28 Border Guards Day

Border Guards Day

28th of May, 2010 is Border Guards Day in Russia. On this day traditionally border guards walk in the city, bathe in fountains and drink a little bit. This year the holiday ended with a successful fight 100 VS 100! They were separated by three platoons. About 70 fighters were detained, about 30 ones were pushed into ambulance cars, the rest were set free.
Official statement: "the holiday is assigned to demonstrate combat strength of the platoons, to raise fighting spirit of soldiers doing their call of duty for their motherland and state, but first of all, on this day it's customary to remember the feat of those who didn't spare themselves to rebuff invasions of their country".

Parade Rehearsal In Moscow

It's not an easy business to take pictures of the parade rehearsal in Moscow - but these guys managed to do it last year and repeated the feat this year as well when watchful guys of federal security
service were hunting for curious photographers not to allow these pics appear... In fact the rehearsal of the parade this year does not  differ much from that one of the previous year.
