  1. An amazing collection of historic photos, I hope these are preserved somewhere safe.
    A small typo in the opening sentence, the Russian Empire existed between 1721 and 1917.

  2. Fabulous historical photos! Thanks for sharing. I guess, in the entry sentence “The Russian Empire existed from 22 October 1721 until 1971…” dates should read “from 1721 until 1917”.

  3. On 30 Dec. 1922 the Union of Soviet Socialist Republics was established; thus, there was no longer a Russian Empire. (sorry, you Monarchist reactionaries)

  4. Ancient civilizations existed at that region long before Kievan Russia appeared (actually that was ancient or medieval Ukraine, not Russia).

  5. What else Russia is nowadays than the good old monarchy, where the omnipotent king was replaced by equally so president title. Where opposition’s freedom of expression is limited and fought against.
