Aurora Cruiser - through time...
Санкт-Петербург

Крейсер "Аврора" выведен из сотстава Военно-морского флота России. Теперь это музейный объект, охраняемый и обслуживаемый курсантами расположенного напротив училища. Тщедушный курсантик еще несет вахту у трапа. Но в пределах охранной территории уже несколько лет прописался пивной павильон "Балтика АВРОРА Балтика" а за ним - целый ряд лотков с сувенирами, заслоняющих вид на Символ Революции. И нет уже того Христа, чтобы изгнать торговцев из Храма... Да и не храм это уже. Поругание "Авроры" началось уже тогда, когда ее кормой вперед оттащили на тогда Ждановский завод, теперь - "Северную верфь" на капитальный ремонт, и во время ремонта, отпилив всю подводную часть и выкинув на свалку, превратили крейсер в дебаркадер, то есть судно, своего хода не имеющее и предназначенное для времяпровождения у причала.

 "Орудие огромной разрушительной силы: один холостой выстрел и 70 лет разрухи на 1/6 части планеты.... Миллионы погибших...."
 Пусть уж она, "Аврора" стоит на своей вечной стоянке. Хотя бы как напоминание о том выстреле.

More About Российская Федерация

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.Check out what's happening north of Mongolia these days, in ChitaAlthough 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.Text by Steve Smith.
