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.

Russian snowboarders at competitions in Slovenia became twice world champions and three times prize-winners of the championship. The World Championship was held in parallel disciplines. According to the leaders of the Russian national team, on the podium they really lacked the country's anthem, which was banned due to the sanctions of the World Anti-Doping Agency (WADA).
The gold medals of the World Championship were won by Dmitry Loginov and Sofia Nadyrshina, who became the best in the parallel slalom in the men's and women's categories respectively. For Loginov, the victory at the championship of the planet is already the third in his career, and Nadyrshina's success was a surprise for world snowboarding.
The seventeen-year-old Russian woman became the youngest world champion in this discipline in the history of snowboarding. In addition to gold, she brought the silver medal won in the giant slalom to the collection of the Russian national team. In the medal standings, the Russians became the best team in the competition.

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.
