This is aerated concrete, have you seen such material? It is quite popular in Russia. Several times cheaper than brick. This material seems to be a modern one but in fact it started to be produced back in the USSR, in the 1930s. Aerated concrete is modern energy-saving material used in individual
construction. The main thing about it is that anyone can build a house using foamed concrete without any help. The photos below were taken at Ytong factory in Mozhaisk city that started functioning in 2008. This is the largest factory producing aerated concrete in Russia.

Soviet tanks are still respected and still serve in other 26 countries! In Russia it can mostly be seen as a monument today (as on the photo above), but somewhere in Europe, in the Balcan countries, many of them still operate just as seen on the photos below.

To the Highest Top of Saint-Petersburg!

It seemed to be impossible to get to this TV tower in St. Petersburg without a pull. But there are always guys who are ready to prove there's nothing impossible. It's rather dangerous to go higher than 656 feet where used to be an observation deck - the antennas radiation can cause irreversible effects for
health. So it remains to catch the moment when the antennas are off - when preventive measures are taken. It means a lot of technicians being there though... Thus it cannot be easy anyway. Now we are going to climb the height of 1000 feet, there is nothing higher in St. Petersburg...
