This is a Russian tractor of totally unknown make but with a
permission from road inspection for be in use in year 2007.
These are photos from a race. But probably it is one of the most strangest races - it is a race of Russian president's guards racing competing to each other in order to prove who can drive
governmental guard cars better. In winter, with little to no visitors they ride on circles, fully armed with machine guns and flashing lights on, on the same cars they use to guard Mr. Putin.
Probably all know famous "The Beatles" song "Let It Be". But less know
that there was a Soviet-Russian version of this song. Here it is.
In early 1970s in Russia there were tests of trains that had jet plane engines. Its maximum speed was around 249 km/h (around 155 mph). And it had engines from Yak-40 passenger jet plane.
Later they decided to put the engines from another Russian jet plane TU-134 to the passenger boat. So it could go as fast as 100 km/h (60 mph) on water when carrying passengers!
Some people say that drug addictions can be cured, but the most hard of the healing process is the substitute. A person cannot find a substitute for the
accessories he is got used while being on drugs. So maybe making such pancakes Russian style can be a perfect substitute for people in need?
I bet most of our readers enjoy warm spring these days. But how about Russia? Do they also enjoy first green leaves and
bright rays of the sun? Look at those photos submitted by Hrenovina today, shot also today at city Ufa in Russia.
We had today fishermen's car swimming on top of
ice-foe, now another car - under the ice.
Maybe you have heard sometimes stories how fishermen go fishing on ice and then the part of ice shrinks and goes for some free swimming in the open seas. At least in Russia
this happen this all the time in springs, many fishermen find themselves in such situations like here on photos. A piece of ice and the car - in the open waters.
Is that what supposed to
be called "moto-car"?
This is "Mother Motherland" monument in Kiev city, Ukraine. It is already 40 years old and at the moment it was finished it was the tallest statue in the world. It is taller than the Statue of
Liberty in New York. These photos by black_jester are made on top of the statue showing you it as most up-close as possible and also the panoramic view of the Volgograd city can be seen.
