Moscow--Victory Day Preparations

April 26, 2005

Some people were laying flowers to the Unknown Soldier's grave, others were having their pictures taken by the Eternal Fire and Hero City monuments.

The veterans had some kind of a get-together at Hotel Rossiya - there were hundreds of them there, and as they were walking back to their buses, it was so sad to realize that these were the remnants of a generation - the generation whose lives were ruined by the war, among other things. And that most of them are not gonna be here anymore in five years... But then I saw one woman who proudly carried Stalin's portrait printed in the Pravda newspaper that the veterans had received together with the carnations. That made me sick - and very, very angry. Most other veterans I've seen used their newspapers to wrap their flowers in.

Moscow--A Broken Zhiguli

 
 
The water was boiling - and it looked so gorgeous that I came up to the car's owner and asked if I could take a picture. He was standing a few meters away, smoking and waiting for the engine to cool down.

"Yeah, whatever, but just don't photograph the license plate number, okay?"

I'm not surprised at this reaction. Not at all. But I'm still wondering: what could I possibly do with this knowledge of his license plate number?

A poor little broken-down Zhiguli - and its paranoid owner...

So I've blurred the number in the first picture.
