The monument to The Red Army military glory.

The heroic struggle in the spring and summer of 1919 has forever entered the annals of Orenburg history. More than for three months the din of the battle was not subsided. Red regiments formed from the railway depot  workers, the plant "Orles", the leather and food industries, demonstrated persistence and selfless courage.  At the end of October 1968 in the square named after Sverdlov on a concrete pedestal, patched with marble, was set the gun. Its trunk aims for the Ural River - where were defeated White Guard units, stormed the Orenburg. The iron plate, mounted in pedestal, cast the words "To selfless courage of Red Guards, regiments of Orenburg workers, who defended the city in the formidable 1919, from the Komsomol of the 60s. October 1968. "

122-mm gun model 1931/37's (A-19, the index GAU - 52-P-471A) - Soviet gun of the Second World War could not be applied in the Civil War of 1919.

This is an overview of Russia

Just in case you mistakenly heard that it was all ice and snow in Russia, take a peek at the Big Bikini Exposition. This is right on the river Moskva in Moscow!

Moscow has been the capital of Russia for almost its entire history. The exception is during the period of the Russian Empire, which lasted from 1721 until the Russian Revolution 1917. For these two centuries the capital was St. Petersburg. The Russian Empire was the second largest contiguous Empire in world memory; only the Mongol Empire had been greater.

Although you may not have heard of Sochi, on the Black Sea, they're building up quickly and hope to host the 2014 Olympics.

Other periods of Russian history include the Tsardom of Russia, from Ivan IV to Peter the Great, and the Grand Duchy (14th-16th centuries).

The earliest period of Russian history was ruled by the Novgorod Republic and Kievan Rus, which was the first Russian state dating back to 800AD in Kiev.

Modern Russia remains one of the world's superpowers. They launched the earth's second satellite, called Sputnik 1, and were the first country to put a human being into orbit around earth. (The first one is called the Moon.)

After the breakup of the Soviet Union in 1991, Russia became a federal republic of 83 states.
