    • Your testicles look better than it today. I regret to say that Moscow is being swamped with Chinese immigrants. Russians are dying out, no efficient economy, army very underfinanced, child policies not good enough, no national idea. I want it to change as soon as possible to be proud of Russia once more. I’m also really scared that in the foreseeable future there will be wars for Siberia. The Chinese value pride over quality, they adress people by their ethnicity and have a strategy of populating Siberia, since they believed before 1969 os something that large chunks of Siberia belong to China and were occupied by Russia. Well tough luck, what was conquered during those old ages is how it is, if Europeans start talking about what lands belong to whom in Europe it might get very messy indeed, but the agreement in Finland in 1970s to recognise all country boundaries as they are is supposed to be stuck to with more seriousness.

      • You are from Russia? What other “Chinese immigrants”? This is just ridiculous. Chinese in Russia even in Siberia a bit. Not to be confused Asians from former Soviet republics with the Chinese.

        In America far more Chinese than in Russia. But the main problem there – it’s Mexicans. Soon the U.S. will turn to Mexico. At least, the southern states.

  1. Today there are more varieties of food but at higher prices. Life was good then but life is good now also. It’s all very relative.

  2. Yep, those places look much different now. The kiev station looks a bit more run down now. However, the places that used to be beautiful may be ugly now, but the places that used to be ugly are beautiful now.

  3. There were NO christmas parties before the 1990s. Only New Years Eve was celebrated and still christmas is something that is for the religious brother in Ortodox Russia and the date for this occasion is Jan. 7 instead of Dec 24-26 in western countries.

    Please pay attention to these LITTLE LIFE FACTS of SOVIET UNION.

    • Yes, the cathedral lying there today is built for mafia money see; David E. Hoffman “The Oligarchs Wealth and Power in the New Russia”. When I was a boy in Denmark, we saw this outdoor swimming pool in the cinemas and I dreamed that in Copenhagen we could have one that looked like the swimming pool in Moscow and it should be placed where the Copenhagen Cathedral was. Neither more nor less!

    • Everyone is talking against Old Bolsheviks and their contempt for the church.

      I see it differently. They were building true secular society. Where faith is personal and marginalized from everyday public life.

      If only Stalin didnt grab that letter much today wouldve been different.
