“Zhiguli” on avenues, “Volga” on streets 14.04.2021Soviet cars are greeted with welcoming car klaxons honking on the streets of New York, Berlin or Tokyo. It's a long time since German students bought Zhiguli cars, and French farmers acquired Lada Niva. As of today, collectors are chasing Volga, Pobeda (Victory) and Moskvich (Muscovite), which are exhibited in museums and in public squares. For many foreigners, Soviet cars are curiosity and novelty, but for Russian compatriots they symbolize nostalgia and connection with their homeland.

Almost a third of Russians, who previously contracted a coronavirus infection, have already recovered, TASS reports. To date, about 100,000 people are recognized as healthy. Over the past day, the number of detected cases of infection is about 9,000. Over the course of the week, the daily number of cases was less than 10,000 throughout Russia.
Since the start of the outbreak in Russia, 326,448 cases of infection have been confirmed. The country occupies the second place in the world by this indicator. For every 100,000 people in Russia, a little over 222 are now infected.
The daily increase in the number of infected in Russia for the third day in a row remains below three percent. The number of patients continuing treatment increases even more slowly. The infection spread coefficient, on the contrary, increased from 0.91 to 0.93 on average in Russia and from 0.74 to 0.79 in Moscow.
The number of recovered people is growing much faster than the number of cases of infection - as of May 22, growth reached 7.7 percent.
In total, 3,249 people died from COVID-19 in the country. It is 1% of the total number of the infected people.

Lolita and Cosmonaut 11.04.2021Every year in April we commemorate the glorious day of April 12, 1961. It was the day when Yuri Gagarin, the first man of the new space era, was brought to near-earth orbit by the Vostok-1 spacecraft. The flight lasted just a little over an hour and a half, but it turned Gagarin into a figure that has been admired throughout the world ever since. The feat accomplished by Gagarin 60 years ago inspires us to recall the incredible connection of his story with Lolita Torres - a singer and one of the top actresses from Argentina's golden era of cinema.
