Young people go from Moscow to St. Petersburg and back by electric trains. They have to change 4 times. All the way takes about 16 hours. They do not buy tickets. They either manage to escape controllers, or move from one car to another, or
controllers do not approach such a big marginal crowd being afraid (like in case with football fans). That's the meaning of such a journey - economy and adventures, you'll never mess up this country with any other else.
We started to tell you about the kids adopted in villages last week. It's another, second, story. The dweller of a village Chany, Elena Podchasova, had always known she'd have adopted children. Today, apart from her own kids, she has 6 from other parents. She even wanted to adopt one more
little one but her husband Vladimir doubts they can afford it. And they are not so young already... The first step is the hardest. Then foster parents are afraid of nothing. They are rewarded by gratitude and love of children whose destiny changes for the better so much.
1990-1995, Russia. 23 shots of a French journalist Jean-Paul Guilloteau taken in different regions of Russia in the years that seem to be the period of mythology now... The landscape left by the USSR. Atmosphere, streets, faces, colors, clothes and things of that time, when the Soviet Empire vanished so fast but all its material
attributes were still around. The alternative future gave only hints: brights signs, lines in the subway, bottled beer that was not a hard-to-get thing anymore... These photos are so different from what we see everyday in the varicoloured flow of news of the XXI century so it was impossible to miss.
