A capybara called "Prokhor" has broke free from its cage in Krasnoyarsk zoo. It headed directly to the rides section of the park making the visitors getting their phones out of the pockets for the unique video of a zoo
staff chasing real life capybara running around. Capybara is a giant rodent if you didn't know, which is a relative to mice and others but is really much bigger than those. See one of the videos from the zoo here.
Three Russian guys decided to go on an unusual adventure - travel across Russia in an old Soviet car. Basically, this car was always treated as a parody of a normal car and was always ridiculed in funny stories, etc. It only has forty
horsepower and the car's basic appearance stayed the same from the 1960's until the 1990's when they stopped producing them in Ukraine. However it didn't stop them from taking one of the cars for a journey. So here are some pics.
Some say "Summer is not bad in Russia, not too much snow". Well, this summer this joke became very real with a massive snowing in some Siberian cities yesterday. Just check these photos - it used to be the hottest time - the
month of July - but people of this city awoke to white snow covering their streets. Some were shocked, some started snapping photos and writing "5.7.2015" on the snow to commemorate this event in social networks.
This week the remains of a huge sea monster were found by Russian fishermen on the Pacific Coast, again. A similar monster was found a few years ago and it caused a huge debate both on the Internet and in Russian media about what the monster could be.
And now, a few years later, the new find was discovered by another group of fishermen near Shaktersk city on Sakhalin island - the largest populated Russian island. They say that the length of the animal is over four meters (12 feet).
"They bark, cry and ask for people's help - but nobody is coming". Alexei together with his team are on a mission to save the pets who were left behind by their owners during the recent floods happening across
Russian cities. Some people were in such hurry to escape that they left their pets on a leash, chained to the fence, leaving the animals absolutely zero chances to escape the approaching waters.
The Russian city of Sochi, the host of Winter Olympics 2014, got a massive flooding today. According to reports all Sochi is flooded by the river Herota (literary means "River Bullshit" in Russian) which rose because of the non-stop rains. Because of this even the
city airport is flooded with planes landing on the airfields having a few inch of water. Also, the arriving and departing tourists wander across the airport with their feet submerged in the water. These and many other pictures inside of this posting.
