Memorial In Rayon Center Ilek
Asia

 At the beginning of the XVIII century to protect the eastern borders of Russian empire from attacks Nagayts and other nomadic peoples there was created fortified line along the river Yaik (the old name of Ural). On February 5, 1737 Yaik Cossacks received the highest resolution of Anna Ivanovna for the construction of the fortress at the mouth of Ilek. Now village Ilek is a rayon center of Orenburg region.

There's a memorial  to the fallen in the Great Patriotic war 1941 - 1945 in the center of Ilek. The Soviet Union has suffered great losses in World War II. About 27 million lives were the victory price. It's come a national tradition - to assign flowers to monuments of war heroes on V-days, every May the 9th. At 12:54 p. m. on 6th of July, 2013.

More About Asia

Asia is the biggest continent on Earth, a darling little gem floating around in space.Hm, what is Asia? Who's in on it?China and India are safe bets for Asian nations. Korea, Japan, Thailand, you're fine.Europe? No. Europe would sort of be on the "Asian continent" if not for those pesky Ural mountains dividing things up in the middle, and then also the whole lineage of kings and wealth and nations and the EU and all that "give me my respect" stuff.Russia would probably be happiest as its own continent, so for now we'll leave it in "Eurasia" and just hope the natural gas supplies keep flowing.Pakistan and Afghanistan are dang close to Asia, but politically they show up in "Middle East" news stories an awful lot. Verdict: Eurasia.I guess we'll actually have to consider everything from Turkey on eastward to be "Eurasian", although the moniker seems overlappitory of the territory.The Asian economy is now officially raging like a wild furnace of lava that consumes everything in its path. Japan has had the largest individual economy in Asia for decades, but it is forecast that both India and China will outstrip Japan within twenty years.China is the largest holder of United States debt and is positioned to become the world's next superpower, provided that Godzilla doesn't return and decide to stomp everybody back into the Shang Dynasty.Text by Steve Smith.
