“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.

A short course on the history of the Far East will be published in one volume in Russian and in English, TASS reports. The work is underway in the Institute of History, Archeology and Ethnography of the Peoples of the Far East. According to the director of the scientific organization Nikolai Kradin, this publication is necessary for the achievements of Russian science to receive deserved recognition in the world community.
He recalled that a year ago, work on a large-scale project was completed: the history of the Far Eastern region in eight volumes. It was for this that the institute itself was created 50 years ago. The last volume was devoted to the history of the Great Patriotic War in the Far East.
Unfortunately, the scientist noted, over the past 20 years, one can more and more clearly trace the tendency when in the West the research of our historians is pushed aside when citing.
As an example, Nikolai Kradin cited a study by John Stephen from the United States. A short history of the Far East was published under his authorship. At the same time, he studied the publications issued by the institute, worked a little in the local archives. All other researchers are now turning to his book.
But work in Russia can turn out to be much more serious. It's one thing to study other people's works and another - when you yourself shoveled all these archives, the Russian scientist summed up.

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.
