Road Rafting

Just a few kilometers from Moscow city where people by cars worth of $1 million life is totally different.

Some people living in Moscow may even not know how different it is, but it’s real and it’s there.

On this photo just a small example of what happens in rural parts of Russia. Many villages are left by young people who move to cities in a search of jobs and entertainment, some villages are populated with old people.

Here is the glimpse of funeral – an old lady goes on some sort of wooden raft together with a coffin towed by a tractor, though there are some kids so not every young pair moved away from this village.

  1. By the way, nobody has mentioned it yet, did you realize that the “thing” on this float is a coffin with a body in it? The coffin is semi-opened. Only gets better…

  2. If it’s “just a few kilometers from Moscow city”, why not tell us where exactly it is??
    I’m sure wherever this photo was found, there was an explanation of what’s happening and where the people are located.
    So why don’t we get this information?
    I’m willing to believe it’s outside Moscow, just tell me where!

  3. dRE, why would she be Jewish if she’s spreading propaganda?

    I’m Jewish and I have only interest and respect about everything and everyone else.

  4. I wonder if this is an example of the deep-rooted xenophobia (including anti-semitism) so common among Russian nationalists? “Yar, she’s criticizing the Motherland, she must be a dirty Jew”

  5. Unfortunatley, it seems La Russe is not reading tread after her second post.
    That is usually the point when she runs out of facts.

  6. It’s impossible coz Novodvorskaya just dislike communists.
    And Novodvorskaya have a digre and wrote Doestoevsy and Solzhenitsy except LaRusiky. Let’s call her Lariska. It’s more simply to write. )))

    Thanx for information. I didn’t want to spend time to write it.
    I want to add. The Dostoevsky could put to death, but he was condemned to penal servitude by tsar against death. In 5 years he was
    forgive. He changed his mind , supported tsar. After that period of him life Dostoevsky wrote the best and the most famous novels.

  8. I´m not russian but used to live for 30 years in USSR. In Central Asia.
    Now I live in Europe and work with Russia as sales manager.
    If we come back to the photo, I can say that I´ve seen quite similar villages in Russia couple of yaers ago. Not few kilometers from Moscow city, but 200-300 km (Tver and Pskov regions). Russians says that it is 2 big differences: Russia and Moscow. Further to Moscow there is “normal life” in biggest cities. Around of Russia in small towns and villages life is like on Soviet-era even tsar-era! In Russia now is very actaul an old adage: Life is difficult for everybody! Somebody has thin soup, somebody has too small diamonds!
    I have many russian friends but I hate Russia as State and Russian goverment! Unfortunitely russians doesn´t need “westvalues” like freedom and equal rights. They have too much from slaves and asians in their mentality!

  9. Really trustworthy blog. Please keep updating with great posts like this one. I have booked marked your site and am about to email it to a few friends of mine that I know would enjoy reading..

    • To Vibram Ks:
      I think you are num skul.What is it in this blog you like? I will wager any thing that you are biggot Zionist pig with no values of your own who is a victim of useless and cheap propaganda. You should go and get cleaned top to bottom.

  10. This hysteria against Russia is too bad. Unjustified. There is a worldwide Zionist attack on Russia for some reason, as if the Zionists want to see their influence and control of power in the USA through AIPAC (Zionisit organisation) unchellanged. Stronger Russia will be threat to their power. Every Zionist has a task to attack any side that is perceived as their enemy. One day the Zionists will uncovered and the straw they are hinding behand will be broken and everyone will stand against them not because they are Jews (some of the worlds best human being are Jews) but because Zionism is leading them to the edge.Too much greed and too much selfeshness. They have committed genocide in Palestine and probably they caused the last two world wars. The Zionist DNA is motivated by the Telmudic teaching:the Gentiles are their own donkeys.

  11. Why are you so scared of Hesbollah, Hamas, Cuba ad Iran?Why is this attitude? Is it because your beloved the Zionist state of Israel?Don’t you give people the right to defend themselves?These people are NOT and will never ever be enemy’s of Russia. They will be your enemy and USA enemys? Why? because the Us is controlled by the Zionists. They are every where, from the Whitehouse to every position in the land. What they have all in common? Make sure that Israel is safe and sound and that Zionist Jews all over the world are milking the countries they are living in.Just name one country that Zionist Jews are an integral part of that country. They act like parasites and leaches.Shame on you to defend that act.
