AK-47 Lane

Probably that's the only case when the famous AK-47 is being used in peaceful purposing, at least some parts of it. This ex-officer got
somewhere a lot of those and couldn't find a better way for them than to make the paths between his huts in such a manner.

31 The Hostages

The Hostages

A group of journalists were kept as hostages by a bunch of Southern looking guys dressed in military uniform. Well, almost. It is a new experience one can get in Chelyabinsk city, Russia in the recently opened special courses of "How to behave during if you was taken as a hostage". First a bus full of people is being
stopped in the middle of nowhere by a bunch of Arabic people yelling "Allakh Akbar" each and every five seconds. Those are not real terrorists, but Russian SWAT soldiers carefully picked by appearance - with Southern roots so that they could resemble ethnical Chechen or Arabic threat.

23 B-413 Submarine. Interiors.

B-413 Submarine. Interiors.

The B-413 submarine belonged to the Soviet Northern Fleet for almost 20 years -- from 1969 to 1990. Next eight years it was a unit of the Baltic Fleet, and soon after its decommissioning, in July 2000, the B-413 became an item of the Museum of the World Ocean. Now it’s exhibited in Kaliningrad, and in 2000 after the tragedy of the Kursk submarine the museum organized a fundraising campaign for the
families of crewmembers who died in the catastrophe. The interiors haven’t changed a bit since 1969 when it was constructed. Everything there is very accurate and small, for tall men it was more than hard to live and work in the submarine, as there is little room and you had to move very quickly, especially when the situation required it. The photos below worth many words.

25 The First Russian Submarine

The First Russian Submarine

The first submarine in Russia was constructed in 1834 by Carl Schilder, though there had been some attempts, not really successful ones, in the period of Peter’s rule. In 1832 Schilder was engaged in investigation of underwater behavior of galvanic
mines to apply them in protection of the Russian ports, and right then he conceived the basic idea of creation a submarine that would be able to move under water, come close to an enemy ship and blow it up with a galvanic mine.
