Research Institute-4 or military unit 25840 is located 25 km from the Moscow Kremlin in Yubileiny, the Moscow region. Once here was a flight control centre from where they were watching the flights of the first Earth satellites and the flight of Yuri Gagarin. The flight control centre was moved not far, to Korolev, and in the 1960s the instituted started performing other tasks: mainly at requests of strategic rocket forces. In fact all the
city Yubileiny was built to provide the employees of this institute. In the 1990s it lost its status of "a close military city" and military men started to occupy empty laboratory buildings of the institute. Let's see how officers' families live. Journalists, bloggers, press office of RF Ministry of Defense do not come here and do not show how live those who work for the Russian space-rocket field.
In April 14-15th, "the club of the military history of the 17th airborne division" (Klub vojenské historie 17th Airborne Division o.s.) held an annual reconstruction of battles between the German and American troops of 1945. In 1945 the third American army liberated the Czech cities: Ceske Budejovice, Pilsen, Karlovy Vary and was ready to proceede further to Prague. But in May, 5th, commander of General Staff of Red Army A. Antonov demanded
from general Eisenhower "not to move allied troops in Czechoslovakia to the east from the iniatially planned line". Everybody understood that those who would liberate Prague would be able to impose their political and economical rules on the Czech government. There were three alternatives: "western democracy", "market economy" and "the most advanced public system" - Leninism-Stalinism. Stalinism won.
