Our reader Antti from Finland has submitted some nice photos from St. Petersburg, Russia, which he made during his last trip to this Russian city.

Many people in comments can’t understand why some Russian young guys are so agressive against the American readers. Here is a probably one of the reasons – the collection of the ads you can see while you walk around the city:

Murmansk Military Objects

Imagine we are foreign intelligence service agents and we are spying on Russian military bases. Just a few years ago it was impossible, and it was even more impossible (if that’s a thing) during the iron curtain era. But now thanks to google we can see all the top secret Russian objects clearly in these shots.

Russia still stays very militarized country.

If we were to explore just a small part of it with Google Earth, in the Murmansk region (one of many of Russian regions) which is located next to Norway and Finland, we can see dozens of military objects, mainly Russian Navy ones.

Here they are:

First Russian CD

first russian cd

These are photos of first Russian CD.

In Russia common people didn’t have cd players untill mid 90s, so in later 80s there were no Russian music discs at all.

This was the first one produced by Russian music company “Melodia”. You can read the contents on the pictures – it was both on English and Russian language because it was mainly for export – nobody in Russia was in need of cd’s.
