Some people think that those who live in Sakhalin have red caviar for breakfast, dinner and supper. It is wrong, of course - red caviar is not included in their everyday menu. Just like you and most Russians, they eat it on holidays and when they really want to. It is not so cheap on the island, either, but almost
everyone who comes to Sakhalin usually buys several kilograms of red caviar to take home for family and friends. It's true. We are going to visit a fish factory in Sakhalin and see how this product is made. Maybe after seeing these photos you will like it even more, or maybe stop eating it for ever.
These people have been sent to North Caucasus for fifteen years. At the cost of their lives they stop bandits and terrorists. The images you are about to see are exclusive. They were taken at the time of special operations by the special-purpose team from Moscow (usually it is a sniper who takes photos). We cannot show you their
faces. Such operations are secret and no journalists are allowed. By the way, this group is equipped and prepared better than others. The fighters of the group are constantly taking exercises being an elite of special forces. It's hard to believe but their monthly earnings are only about 1300 dollars.
Novokuznetsk, Russia - photos have been posted of a power plant that suffered an explosion earlier today. As per the photos, it looks like the plant itself received some severe damage. As per official information, at 9.55am there was explosion inside the room where the main turbines are located. Authorities and the rescue mission could

Novokuznetsk is a city in Russia with a population of over 500,000 people. The power plant is question has the power capacity of 100 Megawatts. More photos inside.
With all the recent talk about war and Ukraine, we decided to remind everyone what the climate in Ukraine really is like. Basically in winter, though it is a bit milder than in Siberian parts of Russia, it is
still almost as severe as in European Russia. This means snow and temperatures way below zero. Here is, for example, how the highway connecting two Ukrainian cities looked just a few weeks ago.
When a police officer pulls you over you can expect him to give you a ticket, to talk to you about driving safety, or in other words, people don't expect anything good when this happens. However, if you are in Russia these days, you can get pulled over by a cop just to find out that he wants to present to you a flower. Only if you are a woman. The road safety police these days give away hundreds of flowers to random lady
drivers across the country, in an effort to celebrate International Women's Day - a holiday that is widely being observed in Russia. Holding a flower behind his back while pulling the unsuspected lady to the side of the road might be a trick that's a bit cruel, as all things she might have done wrong might go through her mind until she finds out that this was not the reason for the stop.
Vladislav Ketov is an outstanding traveller from Russia who, by the way, turned 64 in February. No, he has neither managers nor sponsors, and his experience has never been mentioned in the Guinness Book of World Records, but
