  • Sirens wailing around right now

    Right now all city's loudspeakers are wailing with air raid sirens. On this day the town of Shlisselburg was captured 69 years ago and the Siege of Leningrad began.

      I'm planning to take some pics of the city today, the administration must've prepared some activities for the occasion.

            Phew!! Thanks for almost giving me a heart attack

            Leningrad is not forgotten, it's valiant and obstinate resistance is carved in stone forever

            I want that black car, and the girl in red looks hot! But it's a little far away :P
            And that pic of all those old people with medals tell me that in Russia, even the 89-year old granny next door can be a War Veteran like a T-34 driver or AT cannon crew or fighter pilot. Don't mess with them!

              Thanks, man!

              Speaking of Soviet veterans, here's what I've noticed while reading an article about Siberia today. The journo, in the typical "I know all I saw it on TV" manner describes the horrors of Putin's regime:

              I've looked up some info on him at warheroes.ru and found out that he was given this title for the capture of a bridgehead at Vukovar in Yugoslavia in December 1944 and holding it until the approach of the main force. The author surely presumed HSU medals were issued only to those who hated democracy

                I wish I had one of those. Motorcycle with a DP-1928 would be awesome.
