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:

3 Sauna in the Typhoon class Submarine

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!

Moscow Airport DOMODEDOVO from Above

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
onboard the airport if there are no clouds, if it is not a night flight and if you have a window seat. If you don't plan to come, here are the photos of one of the Moscow busiest airports taken by Alex:

Moscow Police Special Forces Host Open House

It seems that it has been a while since we had something about the army or police training and you have probably started missing this stuff already. So here, Evgeny, the "Russian Blogger" has visited an event which Moscow
Police Special Forces were staging to display their actual forces and enforcements in action. Pretty picturesque and also you might already noticed there is already snow. So let's see what they have there:

Someone Stole and Wrecked a TRAIN near Moscow

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
people) rode this train on the railroad for some time and then... crashed it and wrecked it. Then they escaped. Just imagine. There are some more photos and info inside.

3 TU-154 Transported by Ground

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.

Kamaz Truck Reimagined as a Home

I bet you've seen houses on wheels before, nothing new here. However, this one is made by some Russian actor and is not something made in a factory but
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.

22 Battleship Aurora in the Docks

Battleship Aurora in the Docks

Aurora, or how it's written in Russia "AVRORA", is a very important vintage battleship - first it's still more or less intact and thus can be climbed and explored, and second it is greatly connected with an event called "October revolution" - it's when Lenin took power. Legend says the coup members, including Lenin, had a plan that the coup would start after the rebel sailors of the Aurora cruiser started to fire shells into the Winter Palace, or Hermitage as we know it now, in St. Petersburg. So since then, in every Soviet school, this battleship shot in 1917, was proclaimed to be a game changer and in important
historical piece in itself. There were songs about it, there were movies about it, and the ship itself was on a constant display in downtown St. Petersburg in Soviet times for tons of tourists coming from different parts of the country to get a peek of the legend. These days the legend has moved to the docks, as while it was being displayed in St. Petersburg it remained submerged in the river waters so it was rusting and needed renovation. So here we have a unique chance, thanks to Alex, to see the legend of Soviet school goers up close in the dock. See it inside:

4 Looks Like Those Work

Looks Like Those Work

It looks like this strange, home-made armor works. At least from looking at these photos of an Ukrainian armored vehicle after the battle. You can clearly see that
damage occurred to the metal bars but not to the vehicle itself and it looks like he successfully left the battlefield. Some more photos are inside.
