The Shaman Against Estonia

Yes, I know that the last video was the last post about Estonia, but we can't pass by this one. This guy on the photo above is Estonian premier minister, the man who as Russian mass media states started this bronze soldier story. And this is
a shaman from Siberia. As Russian newspaper "Tvoy Den" states he was very revolted with the whole story, so he decided to chant day and night using his magical tricks to "kill the evil spirit in Estonian prime minister".

How They Build It in Russia?

These days property prices in Russia hit new highs and they suffer greatly from lack of the property to feed this demand fully, so they build, build and build. But how do they build? It's no secret that all the
construction sites in Russia packed with foreign workers from even more poor ex-Soviet countries, who charge less and often don't have visas or work permits. And these pics show how do they build modern Russia.

66 Kaliningrad Before and After

Kaliningrad Before and After

Do you know a German philosopher Immanuel Kant? He left in easternmost part of Germany in the city called Konigsberg. Today this city is not called Konigsberg any more, it is Kaliningrad now, the most westernmost city of Russia and the things so are already for 60 years. After the WW2 this region came under the Soviet rule, together with so-much-discussed Estonia and other Baltic Countries. These countries are now independent, cutting the only on-ground roads and railroads leading to Kaliningrad, so now the city and the area
around it is fully cut off from the Russian mainland but still stays the part of Russian Federation even it is separated so much from it. You can see Kaliningrad as a leftmost red dot on this map of Western Russia. Here we have 23 pairs of photos of Kaliningrad from showing the city before the Russian rule and World War 2 in distant 1939 and nowadays, year 2005. You can make your own conclusions on how the WW2 affected the city, and how Russian rule affected it too.

Meanwhile in Estonia

Meanwhile in Estonia, people caught for participating in riots against "the bronze soldier re-positioning" are being held in the hanger, all handcuffed, forced to
seat on the floor, from time to time being baton by policemen, at least this what can be seen in this hidden cameraphone video, smuggled from out there.

35 Russians and Germans – Brothers Forever

Russians and Germans – Brothers Forever

Yesterday we had a photo of Russian and Nazi officers posing together being in friendly relations - just before Nazi invaded Russia. Today someone submitted us a photo from a family archive which was made already during the Nazi invasion to Russia. Russian Orthodox Christian priest and a Nazi German officer looking like
old-time pals. Maybe that's because Soviets oppressed church in Russia but Germans came and they started feel themselves free? But Germans were catholics and it was not so easy for them to accept another branch of church. Who knows, too many lies were issued by governments and too much truth was concealed.

112 Say Hi to Space

Say Hi to Space

If to continue the topic of Google Earth and satellite images, we found this story. A group of Russians decided to say "Hi!" to all other Google Earth lovers around the world in their own, very Russian way. They wrote the word that is most popular in Russia and in the same time it is the most curse word. You won't hear it from TV
or radio, won't read it in any newspaper or won't meet it in a movie - it's always censored out, but all the Russian fences, public bathrooms etc have it. Many Russians use it, it's almost as popular as "f"-word in USA, maybe even more popular in Russia. You can learn more about it in this Wiki article.

Russian Satellite Photo Service

Russian agency started an "alternative to Google Earth". It doesn't use Google data and only Russian space data is being used. It claims to be "an alternative for Google Earth with more detailed coverage of Russian territory". For now this detailed alternative shows only Moscow city and nearby small towns totally failing showing
something more distant, even St. Petersburg is not visible in detail. As for detail level it also for the moment cannot be compared with Google Earth - it is far more less-detailed view when you zoom in on Moscow city. But you can try yourself this early beta and maybe someday it would be really a good alternative.
