    Since there isn't any specific thread on cities, villages, and what not, I would like to start one.

    Here is something I just saw that caught my interest and just overall felt to share since its so darn beautiful:

    Starozolotovsky khutor Village along the River Don in Rostov. Old Cossack town that is being renovated. Really gorgeous.

    im not sure if this is the proper thread to ask this but a few years ago there was this proposal to construct a new Russian parliament building, but the initial architectural design was rejected, afterwards there has been no new updates about it. Was the project completely abandoned?

    Last I heard is that they were told to rework the designs.
    There was a winning design. But the designers were told it had too much glass (environmental factors apparently), that it was too sombre, that it wasn't Russian looking enough. It was the one with the dome, similar to the American Capitol building, just with more glass.

    I don't know whether it has slipped down the list of "to do" things on the Federal budget.
    I also wonder if they might eventually choose a site nearer to the Kremlin. As they had done previously where a site S West of the Kremlin on the South riverbank was selected as I recall.

    Personally I think the design should be uniquely Russian, not modernist or classical Western. It should become an icon of Russia, like St Basils etc.

    I'd like to see a more updated reworking of the Pre Petrine themes of Izmailovo market used to create an iconic Parliament, maybe closer to the core than the recent designs. It would be showing a self confident Russia, proud of its own traditions, individualist and not trying to mimmick others.

    PS I'd imagine the new Parliament will be done at some point. Its a way of spreading the city out a bit, as needed. The old sites are cramped, poor quality and split in 2. The old sites could be sold off for good money... at some point. And it will mean lots of people won't be stuck in traffic jams as much.

    Spectacular changes in Krasnoyarsk from 2000 until today.

    I would not call this city a main urban center. But it has not stagnated. So all the yapping about the poverty of Russia's outside
    Moscow and St. Petersburg is utter BS. Other Russian cities have seen similar development in the last 20 years.

    Yeah I know him and his channel. He's been discussed here before. He's a scumbag of the very lowest order.
    I watched it from the early days, when his partner was a professional cameraman and editor.
    His channel even early on was mostly polish and no content.
    They moved to Moscow from Ufa and he dicked around then went back to Ufa and stopped working after his partners had spent money on the move. The partner took the crowdfunded camera in lieu of revenue that Baklykov had taken from them.
    Baklykov had the neck to call his partner a "thief" when it was actually himself.

    Onto more important stuff, Baklykov then did more crowdfunding rounds, promising more vids round Russia. He was doing crap like videoing his cousin or the local Sushi shop in Ufa. He took the crowdfunding money and spent it on a holiday in the USA instead. Then did all shit videos of crap like his daughter selling boxes of ripoff biscuits to viewers!

    At the same time he went far more sinister route and started trying to dupe his viewers into a Ponzi fraud called Cashbery. His regular viewers, many of who had contributed handsomely to his crowdfunding campaigns (quite a few) pointed out it was clearly a fraud, that subscribers would lose everything. And that in a decent World, Cashbery promoters would go to jail. Every subscriber that pointed that out to got banned.
    Even the Russian Central Bank issued notices that it was a fraud, adn warrants for arrests. Lawyers wrote to Youtube saying they were accessories to the fraud. But they refused to remove his many, many videos promoting and recommending the Cashbery fraud. Basically the crowdfunding money was used to promote Cashbery NOT to do anything involving Russia. This went on well over a year. Youtube held back his Silver award for a while, yet still shamefully gave it him. (Producing videos as part of a financial fraud now earns you awards with Youtube!)

    Baklykov is a complete sociopath. He refers to viewers who don't pay him money as "all parasites"(even in his videos!)
    I wonder what that makes him - a Ponzi fraudster and stealer of crowdfunding revenues?
    This is the scumbag that even used his little daughter to promote the fraud. He thinks the World owes him a living and rather than create good content he'd rather hustle the unsuspecting.
    Even in the early days you could see how disdainful he was of his partner.

    I'm amazed he hasn't had the living daylights beaten out of him yet. There's lots who want justice against him. He's never handed back a penny to those he stole from in the past couple of years. And Youtube now removed the many videos of his fraud. He claims to have made 150k USD or more from Cashbery, even putting his daughter in a private school from his fraudulent gains.
    Basically he's a complete and utter maggot. And speaking as myself, someone of half Russian blood, I'm really saddened when some say "ahhh a Russian... a complete criminal".

    As for his channel, well he's an awful presenter. But he acts like some sort of "superstar in waiting" such is his psychopathy. Some of his vids were ok (usually when his partner was there). But he spins out crap pretending its  channel worthy eg spending ages explaining the polystyrene trays in a takeway). His cofounder Grom got him where he was because Grom is a TV professional whereas he is a complete chancer ie crook. There's lots of Russia channels that are infinitely better than his. Personally, I'd just like him to face justice... whatever form that takes.
