12 400 White Trucks for Ukraine

400 White Trucks for Ukraine

    Tens or hundreds white KAMAZ trucks moved to Ukraine's border tell the news outlets. Some already report that some of those have already crossed the border. Where did they get so many white trucks? A day before photos surfaced posted by some soldier (allegedly) in his social network page how he was bragging that they painted white
400 military trucks. Some photos show the trucks with black registration plates which belong to the army, however what I read from news report that trucks don't have plates at all. If those have crossed the border or not, should be probably clear from the next news reports, meanwhile here are the photos of those.

2 Getting into Secret Navy Ship Building Dock

Getting into Secret Navy Ship Building Dock

Trips to such places were utterly secret and impossible in Soviet times. In modern times things might be changed however Aslan, the blogger, says that the security service of this place was following him all around and even when
he just took a shot of peaceful workers who were standing there, the security guy asked why he needed such a photo? Anyways, he got into the large navy boat building plant and here are his photos and report on it.

1 Belarus Parade

Belarus Parade

In Belarus they also have parades. Pavel, photographer, has visited the event to see the army of this country on parade. "This is murder!", says Pavel, "a murder of the pavement of our city! Yes, we have a glorious past but why should
we destroy roads paved with our tax money with those tanks?" Looks like this what people think about their parade. At least Pavel does. But here are some photos he took, so what does the Belarus army have in store?

"Pelorus" is a yacht that belonged to Abramovich, formerly Russia's richest man. The biggest at the time, the most luxurious, etc. But what did the Russian elite use a
hundred years ago? Here is the boat "Livadia" named after a resort in Crimea, which has been used by the Russian Tsar (what could be more elite at time?)

10 Living on the Atomic Icebreaker

Living on the Atomic Icebreaker

What is it like to live on such a ship? Is it like living on a luxury cruise liner or is it more like staying in the cabin of a truck? We can find this out thanks to Sergei, who continues posting
his photos from the trip he took on this large ship of the Russian fleet. You might be surprised but there is even a room on this ship where the crew members can play volleyball!

2 Sneaking to the Unknown Ekranoplan

Sneaking to the Unknown Ekranoplan

We've mentioned a few Ekranoplans on ER before. And frankly, I thought most of those vehicles that were built to fly very low above the surface of the Earth were discontinued and abandoned. However, it seems that there
are a few, or at least one, that can be met deep in the warehouses of large factories that have never surfaced and never had a flight. Here is one of them - the Ekranoplan "Spasatel" or "The Rescuer".

Getting a WW2 Tank from the Bottom of a River

  If digging in the soil in the Western part of Russia can yield you Nazi memorabilia, coins or even guns and heavy machine guns, trawling the lake or river bottoms (there are thousands of lakes and rivers around, by the way) can yield you something
more serious - WW2 tanks and planes for example. Here's an example of the rescue operation of a WW2 era battle tank being raised from the local river by enthusiasts, sponsored by the video game company that makes games about the tanks.

First TU-144 Body Transported thru Moscow

When the first ever version of the Tu-144 supersonic airliner was conceived, they didn't build it all together in one factory. They built the fuselage in one place, inside Moscow city and then decided to move it to Zhukovski city where it could be supplemented with all other parts and systems. To
move such a thing out of the Moscow research center through the city streets they had to build specially-built trolleys that could negotiate the streets, as back in 1968, they didn't have a ready-made means of transportation for this task. These are a few photos of this event.
