        In fact, at that time the Germans were already shooting color photographs, and the color chronicle was also filming them.

          Belgorod region. Woman near the water tank (from the caption under the photo)


          This is not a "water tank." The simplest rural moonshine. Moonshine is the unchanging currency for exchanging for food, things, treats in the end.
          In a series of photos, especially pleasing, a photo of the German graves of murdered fascist invaders.
          Let the Germans and others who want to gain Russian lands more often look at these photos and know what awaits them in Russia - a wooden cross and abandoned unknown graves.

      Yes, poverty is simply amazing. I must say a huge thank you to the Soviet government, which literally out of the blue for all some 15-20 years, by the year 60, managed to create more or less tolerable living conditions for ordinary people. In this regard, I would like to compare the "independent" nationalist authorities of Ukraine, which inherited a well-maintained country for 23 years, on the contrary, destroyed everything.

        And where was this Soviet power until 1943 when these pictures were taken? Why didn’t she create a worthy life for her citizens in more than 20 years?
        Why is there still no water and gas in all villages? Not enough water? Desert?

        PS
        For 70 years, the Soviet government, even in the European part of the USSR, could not build roads everywhere ... angry

            The length of all roads in Israel for 1-2 years.

            You compare the length of roads in North America and the European part of the USSR, not Israel.

            Yes, and 4 years of war, which has preserved a large number of Jews for Israel, at the cost of the life of a huge number of able-bodied people, is still affecting.

            What are you saying? Saved the Jews or themselves from enslavement? In the photographs, reality is not after 4 years of war, but after 20+ years of Soviet power, which they are trying to praise here. The bourgeoisie did not have Soviet power, but the roads were ... Miracles, however.

            Probably in this? Dolphy suicide bomber:
            June 1, 2001, 23:45 (local time). An Arab suicide bomber from the Palestinian Islamic Jihad, Saeed Khutori, 22, a resident of Kalkiliya, tried to infiltrate the Dolphi disco.
            With him there was a powerful explosive charge made in the form of a belt and stuffed with metal balls, nails, screws for a greater lethal effect.

              Remember, the real names of the revolutionaries, the countries that supported them or took the opportunity to rob in troubled times. Not only did they ruin the country, but they also destroyed personnel. So the roads at the expense of Russia among the bourgeoisie improved after the collapse of the USSR.

                Oh, how I love climate songs. In Canada, it means subtropics.

                You better tell us why in all of Russia the length of roads is 1,283,387 km, and in Canada 1,042,300 km? About America in general I am silent 6,586,610 km. I guess that the Jews are to blame, but what specific fault they find it difficult to formulate. wink

                Remember, the real names of the revolutionaries, the countries that supported them or took the opportunity to rob in troubled times.

                I always knew that Jews, supermen, a bunch of Jews bent p..kom an entire empire.

                And you and others like him try to explain that Israel is the source of good and progress. Yes, the Jewish state appeared thanks to Soviet power.

                Yes, and he knows the expense of goodness and progress and why neighbors come to us who is being treated, who is for a better life, and who is undermining envy and themselves. I don’t feed trolls today, come to the account “the Jewish state thanks to the Soviet power”, come tomorrow.

                And my wife, a Jew, will support me.

                Support in what? In anti-Semitism? That the Jews are to blame for everything? I willingly believe ... let the wife of her husband be afraid ... laughing Or support in your understanding of Hamas and Hezbollah that aim at the physical destruction of Jews (and not just Israel) including your wife. You ask her again.

    In the upper pictures, the woman near the “water tank” is more likely to be a woman against the background of the moonshine still. They go and still drive the moonshine still, they cover all the cracks with dough. Of those Fritz who are located there, as in a resort, there are probably few who took his feet. There is nowhere to hide, there are no forests, only ravines (beams in the local).
