18 Weird Lenin Head

Weird Lenin Head

Another example of weird Lenin statue. Now, it has a following history. First installed in Communists times (no wonder), it was staying there for years, until somewhere in modern times some Russian kids didn't smash its head off. So it stayed for a long time with a crushed

Mud Or Sludge, Tanks Don’t Trudge

Maybe it is the first time you see real "alive" tanks and infantry combat vehicles instead of museum exhibits painted green. While
