6 Storm of Sapun Mountain In 1944

Storm of Sapun Mountain In 1944

Liberation of the Crimea from the Nazis started on the 8th of April, 1944 and already in April, 16 Soviet troops reached the main defence line of the enemy near Sevastopol. Closer to the city the Germans created powerful multi-layered defence where the key position was occupied by Sapun mountain. On its steep slopes the Germans made 3-4 trench lines, built
pillboxes, earth-and-timber emplacements, reinforced concrete shelters, made barbed wire entanglements, and turned the valley at the mountain foot into a mine field. Hitler's command was to hold Sevastopol at any cost, they thought that for the Soviets it would be equally hard to take it back as it had been for the Germans two years earlier.

20 Russian Police in LA!

Russian Police in LA!

When you see something spelled like "МИЛИЦИЯ" be sure it means POLICE in Russian. People used to see those a lot on Russian police cars etc. Of course, they used to see this in Russia, on Russian soil. Then, some enthusiasts tried to imagine what it would be like if the Russian POLICE went to chase the criminals on American soil. They tried to inject Russian speed police cars into action games such as GTA so that it could cruise the sunny palm beach landscapes
bearing cyrillic "МИЛИЦИЯ" logos. And it all seemed so unreal at that time. Unless recently. Here we go, full time operational Russian "МИЛИЦИЯ" Police car down there on the streets of LA. Equipped with a Russian-style full size blue light flasher (see on top of the car) and California road permits and car plates, this Russian police vehicle can successfully chase the suspects on the streets of SoCal.
