          And the sharpness of the water surface? With exposure, you can’t provide such water in any way. And the fact that the photo of the icebreaker is not superimposed on the water background, but actually it is on this water, is without a doubt ...

    The light is on ... Well, just like during the day.
    It’s always surprising why there is lighting in the workshop ... Well, so that you don’t stumble on the slipway a lot, or don’t really hurt your head request
    Presumably for camouflage. To vigorously.

    In general, sailors are superstitious people, so the name of the ship from this point of view is a little alarming. The fate of the auxiliary cruiser "Ural", a participant in the Tsushima battle, and the nuclear namesake of the unique SSV "Ural" is not very successful. I wish the career of the new nuclear-powered ship to be successful and put superstition to shame! puff-puff-puff....

    Well, he's just handsome! Glows like a Christmas tree to the envy of Eurocretins! Let the Burbocks and Habacks in the dark and cold wash their eggs for a minute once a month ... everything is in order with heat, water and light!
