“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.

Sputnik V vaccine will begin to be supplied abroad early next year, RIA Novosti reports. Buyers will receive the drug in accordance with the agreements reached with the manufacturers.
Customers who order later will be able to receive the first vaccine batches in early spring.
According to Kirill Dmitriev, head of the Russian Direct Investment Fund, the supply of the drug to international markets will begin thanks to manufacturers from India, Brazil, South Korea, and China. Also, the vaccine will be produced in four more countries.
The creators of the drug have promised that the price of the vaccine on the international market would be less than 20 dollars. They explained that this is half the cost of other vaccines with similar efficacy, but created on the basis of mRNA. The vaccine price is valid from February next year.
At the same time, the drug will be free for Russians.

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.
