      Well said! good drinks
      It immediately suggests itself: the dwarfs have captured the Atlantean country.
      We are proud of our Great Past, we have a dubious present and a completely hazy future.

        Yes, okay, let's break through! There is such a past, which means there will be a future! The main thing is not to forget who we are Russian - conquerors of space! drinks

          I agree, drinks but the main thing is to break through in the right direction. And then one citizen keeps talking about jerks and breakthroughs, but, unfortunately, only pipes are breaking through now.

    Recently I read an article about how Y. Gagarin was received in Great Britain .. It was very interesting, the prim British were already warmly and enthusiastically greeted, even by the queen, although the protocol was not supposed to be .. This is where pride for the country was and, most importantly, Gagarin did not become a star , but remained a simple guy, of whom there are thousands in the USSR, as he told the Queen.!

        Well, they whined ... Also, remember the special officers of evil, etc.
        I also remembered asking Khrushchev .. Well, how the rocket was created, we will ask you again .. But how do you bring up such charming pilots, this is the main question of all ... Gagarin, by the way, always simply answered, nothing special about me, we have such thousands of pilots in the USSR .. Thank God Gagarin you did not manage to throw mud at the liberals .. angry There is nothing to find fault with!

          The name of Gagarin, like the holiday itself, was privatized by the current government to please their hobby interests, which have nothing to do with either Gagarin or the Holiday.

      .... At the end of the meeting, when Yuri Gagarin was about to leave, Elizabeth broke the law (the monarch is forbidden to take pictures with ordinary people), asking to photograph them together. And when the picture was ready, she said: "I was photographed with a heavenly, that is, unearthly, man and therefore did not disturb anything."

      “Let's eat in Russian,” he said, taking the first spoon he came across and poured lettuce into his plate.
      Many people were amazed at this behavior, but not the queen. Elizabeth, taking a spoon, said: "Gentlemen, let's eat like Gagarin," and started lunch. And a few minutes later, in a joking manner, she admitted that in fact she herself did not know what devices she needed to eat correctly. The footmen tell her.

    I was 6 years old, I vaguely remember how people were happy about something. But I could not understand, there was still a half-wit)))).
    Gagarin is really GREAT, FIRST, HERO.
    And he was not arrogant, he remained a man. It's sad that I left early.
    In general, many great people leave life early, I think they are needed up there.

      And no matter how much the West wants to rewrite history, but that the first man in space was Gagarin, they will not be able to rewrite this.

      The 94-year-old Queen of Great Britain Elizabeth II, during a live broadcast of Sky At Night, together with scientists, teachers and schoolchildren of the country, recalled her meeting with the Russian cosmonaut Yuri Gagarin.
      The legendary man made a special impression on the queen. So, to the host's question about what Gagarin was, Elizabeth II immediately replied: "Russian!"

    Poor celebrations are obtained. They launched a Soviet rocket Soyuz with a Russian sticker and declassified what was known to everyone for a long time. Well, as they say, what are the rich.

      So you can't see from your wretched sofa that the Union is no longer Soviet. laughing And with the celebrations, everything is in order - they will. April 12 has not yet arrived.

    I was also about 6,5 years old when Yuri Alekseevich flew. To be honest, I don’t remember the celebrations in the squares, they weren’t postponed somehow. But I remember the state of my grandfather and grandmother as if it happened yesterday.
    Warm spring day. We are sitting in the kitchen. Grandma is preparing breakfast. And from the loudspeaker plate the chilling voice of Levitan: "This is Moscow speaking ...." The faces of the grandfather and grandmother seemed to be "stiff." Having survived the occupation, they thought that a war had begun, because Levitan's voice was associated with this. And only when the words about the first person went their faces "thawed" ...
