Huge Belaz Trucks Smash Toyota

        Belaz trucks are giant Belarussian (previously Soviet made) trucks that are used to transport large amounts of iron or other ore in one trip. They come in a few versions - the smallest and lightest trucks weigh 70 tons! The biggest Belaz is
huge and weighs 360 tonnes. Like the one on the picture above. Now let's come inside and see more of these metal monsters and also see what happens when some of them back up late at night and simply don't notice a Toyota car parked behind them.

2 Saving Equipment from Shattered Ice

Saving Equipment from Shattered Ice

When traveling on an atomic ice-breaker, the crew often make stops and drop different equipment onto the ice, because the mission is not purely entertainment but rather scientific research. So people disembark onto the ice and spend time doing some scientific stuff, staying for days on the ice near the ship. However, there is a risk of the ice shattering,
sometimes it can happen very fast and these things are hard to predict. Now, this time when Sergey travelled with an icebreaker team, they had three containers of scientific equipment, life supplies and a few people out there on ice, when suddenly the ice broke and people were cut off from the ship. See how it went further on:

6 Russian Tactical Drill on Pacific Coast

Russian Tactical Drill on Pacific Coast

I am not big fan of the army marching and showing what they have, however they do do this and it makes for pretty nice photos of the military equipment, which are to my taste and looks pretty captivating, so why not post them? Also, they do it in Primorye, which is on the Pacific
Coast, and not for the first time. Basically they have drills there (and not near Ukraine), and lately there are rumors in Russia that the Chinese army has been moved closer to the border, so maybe they are doing something there. Anyways, here are the photos:

Sauna in the Typhoon class Submarine

You might not have known that the largest submarine in the word, the 174 meter (575 ft) long submarine of the Typhoon class, has got a sauna inside. Ok, once you've learned this you probably can imagine a pretty big roomy
sauna (as the submarine is so big) but no, the sauna is pretty humble. Oleg, the blogger, has taken a rare chance to sneak into this underwater giant and take some photos of its "SPA" center. Let's see!

So if you ever travel to Russia and your ticket has "DME" written on it, it means that you are coming to Domodedovo airport, one of a few Moscow airports. Here are the sights you might be lucky enough to see from

Ok, now for some weird news. It was reported last night that someone sneaked into a train station in Lobnya, a town near Moscow, and... stole a train. Then he (or a group of

TU-154 Transported by Ground

When the plane can't fly but needs to be moved, it hits the roads. Not an easy task for a big TU-154 passenger plane. This colored plane belonged to a
Russian regional airline and it seems that their plane not needed now and needs to be moved somewhere else. To see how they did it, look inside.

by himself. It has a living space for the actor and his friends and a garage for storing his bike and other stuff. Let's see how it looks.

11 Mountain Resort Built for Olympics near Sochi

Mountain Resort Built for Olympics near Sochi

Before the Sochi Olympics, this place appeared in the Sochi Mountains. Ilya, who went there and took the photos, calls it "100% child of Olympics" probably meaning that this was "ordered" to built so that guests of the Olympics had one more attraction to
visit. However, no matter that it's an "artificial" project, it turned out to be pretty well done and we have a chance to look into this "Roza Hutor" (that's his name) resort up close. From a distance it looks pretty European stylized.
