Good Artists Copy

Some Russian TV watchers have noticed that a new top-level weekend news program promo looks similar to something. After doing some research
they came out with this Robocop intro. They say the similarities are too clear to just be a pure coincidence. What do you think?

Making a Proposal

    That's the way how they make proposals these day in Moscow. It's sort of

Some Russian kids playgrounds look just like this. It's a "lightly armored, self-propelled, radar guided anti-aircraft weapon system (SPAAG)", standing right in the middle of the

That's not a photo from a movie shooting. That's a Korean warship convoy that a few days ago arrived at Vladivostok. Looks like it's pretty

Abandoned Electric Vehicles Factory in Kiev

Most of our abandoned posts come from Russia and not many from other Soviet republics, even Ukraine, one of the largest ones, doesn't often send us pictures of abandoned stuff. This time a Moscow urban explorer, Sam Namos, while he was traveling to Ukraine has visited a local abandoned

Volcanic Canyon River

      On the Kamchatka peninsula, there are plenty of active volcanos, and one volcano's slope - on the Tolbachik volcano - there is the river Studenaia, which is known
