These rather interesting images, dating back to 1914, depict hospitals of Moscow for wounded and sick military
patients. Although they are in large groups, lying all together, they seem to have had good medical care.
An ambulance from the roads of Karelia, Russia. Good thing - calling an ambulance is free for everyone. Another good thing - even this type of vehicle
would transport real doctors to someone in need. Bad thing? The vehicle itself. To see what's inside one of these - look inside this post.
Last year, the winter didn't wish to leave Ukraine. Heavy snowfalls covered the Chernobyl exclusion zone as well. Of course, spring finally took over and all that snow
started to melt... Many areas were flooded and became impassable. Here are some water sceneries from the notorious exclusion zone, photographed last spring.
Pictures of the drill held in the Primorye region of Russia just yesterday. According to the plan of the drill, an illegal armed band of 1000 members came
toward a densely populated area to conduct their terrorist operations. But it's not gonna happen - the terrorists were met with a resounding rebuff!
The MAKS air show is held once every couple of years. At all other times, its premises are not left empty. Thus, several events are held this year as well. One of them you have already read about.
Besides, the guests will see a tank and aircraft-auto shows here in Zhukovsky (Moscow region) on August 16-17th. The pictures presented in this post depict the rehearsals of both shows.
The Russian government invited Steven Seagal to visit and see Russian arms in action. Photographer Marina was lucky to be
present there too, and thanks to her we can now see what Steven saw there and how he reacted. The photos are inside.
Sergey has travelled through Siberia and has been puzzled by where so much trash is coming from. "There are much fewer villages around than
in the European part of Russia. People are pretty much not rich, so how do they produce so much trash??", writes the blogger.
These are color photos by Semyon Friedland, of Soviet people on the verge of the "New World": WW2 had already been over for ten years, so the famine and destruction was mostly
overcome and people were heading for some new, bright future as they expected it would be. At least that is how I feel they were thinking, posing for those photos.
Talking about weird cars this is another one that has been sent our way. According to the story, these were built in Soviet times by the people working in what can be called the Park Rangers
service - people taking care of forests. They were probably in need of cars which could go easily on the dirt roads and also wanted to stay comfy, so they came up with these.
The museum of aviation in Monino, Moscow region is constantly supported by volunteers who
considerably contribute to preservation of old vehicles. Let's see what they did in May-June, 2014.
