    Just kidding; glad to read some fresh opinions actually.
    Don't waste your time replying to NickM though about these things; he's got this obsession going on with Indians and Chinese or something - the man can't see reason.

    Putin says Russian city Volgograd may become Stalingrad again

    Russian President Vladimir Putin does not rule out the possibility of returning the name of Stalingrad to the Russian city of Volgograd located on the Volga River Stalingrad was the epicenter of the most grandiose battle of World War II and was almost completely destroyed by the unparalleled intensity of fighting between Soviet and Nazi troops.

    Answering a question of a WWII veteran, Putin said that "in line with our legislation the issue can be settled by the regional and municipal authorities."
    "In this case residents should hold a referendum where they will decide on it (the change of the name)," Putin said.
    "We’ll do as the residents say," the president said, TASS reports.
    He recalled that in Paris there is a square named Stalingrad and other cities in Europe keep this name in memory.
    "It wasn’t me who changed the name," Putin said as a joke adding seriously that "we’ll mull over how it can be done" [the referendum].

    Russia to spend $22 million to restore Solovetsky Islands World Heritage Site

    SOLOVKI, August 18. /ITAR-TASS/. A total of 800 million rubles (over $22 million) will be allocated from Russia's federal budget to restore the ensemble of the Solovetsky Islands, a UNESCO World Heritage site, a deputy prime minister said on Monday.

    “The Solovetsky Islands are a symbol of courage and faith for every Russian. The restoration of the ensemble is our duty,” Olga Golodets said.

    The Solovetsky Islands are an archipelago in the White Sea. There are about 100 islands, inhabited by only 1,400 people. The Greater Solovetsky Island is the biggest, famous for its medieval monastery, which was founded in 1429. In the 1920-30s, a notorious Soviet prison camp was located on the archipelago. The site was included in the UNESCO World Heritage list in 1992.

    Duma honors Unknown Soldier with new Russian national holiday

    The Russian Lower House has approved the bill setting the Day of the Unknown Soldier as an official holiday celebrated on December 3.

    The day was chosen because on this day in 1966 the Soviet Union was celebrating the 25th anniversary of the victory over the Nazi troops in the Battle of Moscow, and the ashes of an unknown soldier were transferred from a mass grave near the Leningrad Highway and entombed near the Kremlin wall. On May 8 1967 a memorial with an eternal flame was opened at the site which is now known as the Tomb of the Unknown Soldier.

    The bill was submitted to the State Duma in October by all four parliamentary caucuses together.

    “It is important to pass this law because it is necessary to immortalize the memory, military valor and the great feat of the Russian and Soviet warriors who perished in combat both in their motherland and beyond its borders and whose names remain unknown,” reads the explanatory note submitted together with the bill.

    The sponsors say the new holiday would help to strengthen patriotic spirit in society.

    One of the main MPs behind the bill – Irina Yarovaya of the United Russia caucus – has told reporters that establishing the new holiday was the people’s tribute to all who died in battle and whose graves cannot be found by relatives and descendants.

    Volgograd celebrates 72nd anniversary of victory in battle against Nazi troops



    VOLGOGRAD, February 2. /TASS/. Citizens of Volgograd have been celebrating the 72nd anniversary of fierce battle for the city against Nazi troops. On the day of the celebrations of an important anniversary in the history of WWII the war veterans have been telling schoolchildren about the valor and fortitude of the Soviet soldiers and veterans of home fronts who selflessly worked for the sake of the victory.

    Despite a nasty weather and a heavy fog hanging over the city on Monday dozens of thousands of city residents will take part in various patriotic and anti-war events and meetings with WWII veterans. Volunteers will circulate a special issue of the Stalingrad Pravda newspaper that was published in the city during the war. A total of 20,000 copies of the newspaper have been published by the gala celebrations. The newspaper highlights stories dated February 2, 1943 about total defeat of Nazi troops which attacked Stalingrad, journalists were told by Yelena Slesarenko, chairwoman of the Committee for youth politics of the Volgograd region.

    Twenty young women dressed in war-time military coats have walked out into the city streets. "The only such unit of women traffic regulators was first set up in Russia a few years ago not only to regulate traffic, but also recreate a special military-historical spirit of Stalingrad of the war years which is remembered by everyone who had been to war fronts," journalists were told by Chief of the Volgograd Interior department Alexander Kravchenko.

    Gala fireworks, which will be displayed over the embankment of the Volga river tonight, will crown the celebrations of one of the most crucial victories in WWII. The historic battle which continued from July 17, 1942 to February 2, 1943 heralded total defeat of Nazi troops and full victory over Nazism.

    Monument to Big Three Allied leaders installed in Crimea

    The huge statue is the work of the famous Georgian-born sculptor Zurab Tsereteli



    SIMFEROPOL, February 5. /TASS/. A 10-ton monument to the so-called Big Three - Joseph Stalin, Franklin D. Roosevelt and Winston Churchill - has been installed in the Black Sea Peninsula of Crimea on the 70th anniversary of the Yalta conference.

    The monument was unveiled in honor of the key participants of the Yalta conference of Allied powers from the anti-Hitler coalition - the Soviet Union, the United States and the United Kingdom.

    The ceremony is held in the Livadia Palace that hosted the Yalta conference, the second wartime meeting of the Big Three, on February 4-11, 1945, which laid the foundation for the post-war world order.

    The huge statue is the work of the famous Georgian-born sculptor Zurab Tsereteli. The monument has been offered to the Livadia Palace free of charge, a deputy prime minister of the republic, Larisa Opanasyuk, said.

    The monument to the Big Three was originally planned to be installed in Livadia on the 60th anniversary of the Yalta conference. However, some Crimean branches of Ukrainian political parties opposed the move.

    The plans to take the monument to central Russia’s Volgograd to mark the 60th anniversary since the Victory in the World War II were halted as local authorities failed to come to an agreement.

    A monument to anti-aircraft gunners, who shot down the Francis Powers’ aircraft, was erected
    Russian Aviaton » Tuesday May 19, 2015 22:12 MSK

    On May 1st 2015 a monument to Soviet anti-aircraft gunners, who shot down the Francis Powers’ Lockheed U-2 reconnaissance aircraft 55 years ago, was erected in Sverdlovsk Region, Lenta.ru reports with reference to the press-service of Central Military District.

    «The monument was erected at the 56th kilometer of Tyumen route, because military units of air defense forces, who shot down the American spy’s aircraft, were stationed there,» the press-service explained. He added that S-75 air defense system used to shoot down the Powers’ aircraft is depicted on the monument.

    Servicemen from the 2nd command of Russian air forces and air defense forces of the Central Military District took part in the opening ceremony. Commander of this military unit Viktor Sevostyanov said that his troops “continue traditions of the Soviet army in the area of air defense”. The good example is that our regiment stationed in Berezovski town performed perfectly at maneuvers held in Buryatia,» he noted.

    U-2 aircraft piloted by Powers was shot down with a “surface-to-air” missile under Sverdlovsk (Yekaterinburg) on May 1st 1960. The pilot, who worked for CIA and was taking pictures of military bases located in the Urals, managed to survive. He ejected and was captured after landing. The pilot was sentenced to 10 years in prison for espionage. He was put into prison located in Vladimir (pretrial detention center No.1). In February 1962 Powers was exchanged for Soviet intelligence officer Rudolf Abel, captured in USA.

    The memory of Normandie-Niemen squadron will be eternalized in Ivanovo
    Russian Aviaton » Thursday June 4, 2015 19:52 MSK

    A monument to Soviet-French Normandie-Niemen squadron will be erected in a park near school No.56 on Lezhnevskaya Street in Ivanovo. The construction of the monument was started in accordance with the instructions of Pavel Konkov, the governor of Ivanovo Region, and the head of the regional center’s administration Alexey Khohlov, press-service of the Ivanovo Region government reports.

    According to Pavel Konkov, the design of the monument to Normandie-Niemen squadron developed by people’s artist of Russia Vladimir Surovtsev and architect Vladimir Syagin has been approved. The opening of the memorial is scheduled for August in the network of military patriotic holiday “Open Skies”. «The history of this squadron is another heroic page in the history of citizens of Ivanovo, who participated in the Great Patriotic War. We are endlessly thankful to French and Russian pilots and technicians,» Pavel Konkov said. He also thanked Russian Ministry of Foreign Affairs, the Embassy of France in Russia, and Russian Peace Foundation for participating in fundraising and construction of the memorial.

    President of Association of Veterans of the 1st fighter regiment Normandie-Niemen Anatoly Fetisov and daughter of veteran of the Great Patriotic War, mechanic of the Normandie-Niemen squadron Evgeny Vasilievich Belyankin - Irina Belyankina took part in the solemn ceremony dedicated to start of the construction.

    We remind you that the memorial will include two persons – pilot and aircraft mechanic. The persons will be made of bronze and the pedestal will be made of natural stone. Surnames of all the French pilots and Russian mechanics of the squadron will be engraved on the pedestal. The composition of the monument has something in common with the one installed in Le Bourget (also dedicated to Russian-French brotherhood in arms), which was opened in September 2006.

    «The regiment was founded in 1942. In March 1942 French Committee of National Liberation “Fighting France” offered the Soviet authorities to send a group of French pilots and aircraft mechanics to USSR in order to fight Nazi Germany. On November 25th 1942 the agreement between USSR and France was signed and on December 4th 1942 the squadron was formed in Ivanovo. 13 citizens of Ivanovo were members of the Normandie-Niemen. The squadron operated Yak-1 fighters (and later Yak-9 and Yak-3). The squadron’s pilots performed over 5000 sorties and participated in about 900 aerial fights. On November 28th 1944 the regiment was awarded with the title “Nemanski” for courage demonstrated during liberation of Lithuania and cutting across Neman River. The regiment also participated in the Battle of Kursk in 1943, Belarusian operation in 1944, fights against German army in Eastern Prussia in 1945,» the press-service reminded.

    Russian communists collect signatures for 'Iron Felix' statue referendum

    Over 150,000 signatures have been collected, Valery Rashkin, a party member told TASS
    A statue of Bolshevik and Soviet statesman, Felix Dzerzhinsky in Muzeon Park in Moscow, with the President Hotel behind

    MOSCOW, July 20. /TASS/. Activists of the Communist Party of Russia have collected signatures seeking to hold a referendum on restoring the famous statue of Bolshevik revolutionary 'Iron' Felix Dzerzhinsky to its former site in central Moscow, a party member told TASS on Monday.

    "Over 150,000 signatures have been collected," Valery Rashkin said. "We are now checking them for validity."

    The monument to Dzerzhinsky — founder of the state security service Cheka, predecessor of the KGB — was toppled during Moscow events as the Soviet Union collapsed in 1991 and taken to a city sculpture park from its location outside KGB headquarters on Lubyanka Square.

    Backed by Moscow lawmakers and the election commission, the party was given 30 days to collect 146,315 signatures — 2% of the Moscow electorate — in favor of the referendum idea.

    The statue — to be found now at Muzeon sculpture park — was created by sculptor Yevgeny Vuchetich and was unveiled in 1958 in front of the KGB headquarters on what was then called Dzerzhinsky Square.
