"Will the Soviet Union Survive Until 1984?" One of my favourite book covers ever. Published in 1970, by Soviet dissident writer Andrei Amalrik. Sadly, he died in 1980, without ever learning the answer to his question, in either 1984, or the eventual and final answer in 1991. The book predicts the country's eventual break-up.⠀

Amalrik was imprisoned several times, exiled to Siberia, and one of the founders of the Moscow Helsinki Group in 1976. Soon after, an exit visa was foisted on him by the KGB and he left the country. He died in a car accident in Spain in 1980.⠀

Though his predictions weren't take seriously, apparently they were known enough that Natan Sharansky has an anecdote about prison officials mocking him in 1984 (while he was imprisoned) that Amalrik's predictions were never going to happen.⠀

Sidebar note that Wikipedia calls him a "Russian" writer - he lived his short, 42-year-life, in the Soviet Union. That makes him a firmly Soviet writer, even if the words he spoke and wrote were Russian.⠀

My latest watercolor from Tbilisi, Georgia. Some might ask why I would be drawn to paint such a scene of derelict buildings crammed together. To this I would answer, because that is where the story lies. During the many decades of Soviet Control, Buildings and infrastructure in Georgia fell into terrible disrepair. Such buildings are now being torn down and replaced with new structures. After all, this is where people live and safety is of concern. Never the less, I find a beauty in the decrepit edifices still standing, especially those inhabited by families. What you don’t see is the warmth and love inside these walls. To me, a scene such as this tells of the difficulties Georgians have endured while their spirit and love of togetherness never falters. #tbilisi #republicofgeorgia #soviethistory #humanendurance #travelpainting #watercolor #streetscenes #hadleyrampton

Today I’ve visited a very grim place where you can feel the pain and suffering of millions of Soviet citizens, the museum of GULAG which was the darkest side of Soviet power - the terrible years of the Great Terror and repressions.
In the first room, you're greeted by numerous doors – a door from a camp barracks, a door from a cell in a remand prison in Magadan, a door from one of the Seven Sisters buildings in Moscow, from where people were taken away forever – it is a metaphor of moving to another, terrible world.
During the Stalinist regime when no one was safe from horrendous accusations in crimes fabricated by NKVD investigators, anyone’s door could be knocked at, and the person would be gone forever. Happy and peaceful life stayed behind the closed door of one’s home. Ahead was uncertainty full of fear and despair and so were the cold doors of jails, investigator’s officers, transit prisons and labour camp barracks...
The museum offers audio versions of memoirs of people who went through the camps: Varlam Shalamov; Alexander Solzhenitsyn, Leo Tolstoy’s daughter Alexandra; and many others.
All information in the museum is translated into English; same as all the audio materials, and the videos have English subtitles. The museum has a documents center, where one can get information about victims of repressions.
The exhibition demonstrates the importance of preserving the historical memory of terror and the GULAG, to contribute to a deeper understanding and understanding of the Soviet period of Russian history. #guideinmoscow#moscowguide#soviethistory#communisttours#communistmoscowtours

Book 12: "Спасибо товарищу Сталину за счастливую и радостную жизнь!" 📚
.
The first book of 2019 is not so positive as I wanted it to be. It's about sorrow, and pain, and millions of deads. It describes the life of a man, who lost his faith and the way through which he refinds God. This book taught me that we can survive everything if we have faith! So it's worth reading...📚
.
Первая книга 2019 года не такая позитивная, как мне бы хотелось. Она про горе, про боль, про миллионы смертей. Она описывает жизнь человека, который потерял свою веру и о его обратной дороге к Богу. Эта книга показала мне, что мы можем пережить всё если мы веруем! Так что она стоит того, чтобы её прочитать...📚

Moscow had this incredible, intense atmosphere of intrigue and darkness and secrecy. Alan Furst

Я не знаю , это вестернизация или просто мое восприятие Москвы . Москва для меня советский город. Город перестройки. Здания мне тут тоже веют советской историей , Красная площадь и мавзолей . Мне всегда было интересно , что там кроется за стенами Кремля , какие есть тайны, о которых мы никогда не узнаем. Но сейчас дух подобного авантюризма иссяк, не хочется знать тайн и быть посвящённой; мало того, что это небезопасно , так уже и неинтересно. А раньше хотелось стать секретным агентом 🤦🏻‍♀️

И ещё жаль, что совсем мало времени узнать настоящую Москву . Мне всегда жаль , когда мало времени на города. Хочется пожить , узнать куда бы я ходила пить кофе, где был бы мой любимый бар , и какой парк бы я рекомендовала другим . Эх..

Ну наверное , до скорых встреч тогда ❤️

Would you like to hear a sad story with a happy(ish) ending?
That massive church in the middle of the frame is the Cathedral of Christ the Saviour, the tallest Orthodox Christian cathedral in the world. It was painstakingly built by the Russian czars during the 1800s, and the construction took over four decades! The inside of the church was adorned with tons of gold and jewels.
In 1931, it was looted, disassembled, and eventually blown up under the direction of Soviet leader Joseph Stalin. In its place, plans were made to construct a massive Palace of the Soviets, complete with a 100 metre tall statue of Lenin on top. If the structure had been completed, it would have been the world’s tallest building at the time.
Construction crews dug a deep foundation for the building, but the work was soon halted due to the German invasion of Russia in 1941, and all building materials were directed to the front. Thus, the pit stood empty for a long time and was eventually turned into the world’s largest swimming pool.
It was only in the 1990s, after the fall of the Soviet Union, that the beautiful cathedral was rebuilt in its original place, and once again became a staple of the Moscow skyline.
Congrats if you made it to the end of this story, I hope you learned something useful! The best iteration of this history is probably told by the late Polish journalist Ryszard Kapuscinski in his book “Imperium,” so check that out if you’re interested in hearing a more detailed (and much better written) version! It’s also one of my favourite books so I’m biased.

Главная заслуга Ленина, по мнению историка Дмитрия Волкогонова. Интересно, что слово "заслуга" взято историком в кавычки. Эти кавычки отражают концепцию исследователя. На фото - фрагмент обложки книги Д. Волкогонова "Ленин. Политический портрет" (Москва, 1994).

Today on January 7th people in Russia celebrate Christmas!
The Russian Orthodox Church changed from the Julian calendar to the Gregorian calendar in the beginning of the 20th century. These two calendars have a difference of 13 days, so December 25th plus 13 days equals January 7th.
On Christmas Eve churches in Russia have extremely long services - Divine Liturgy. Usually these Liturgies are incredibly long , so much so that people spend anywhere from 10 to 21 hours in church. So people spend the whole night there. In Russian Orthodox Churches we don’t have places to sit, like in American and European churches. Can you imagine standing for that long? 🙅‍♂️ Good thing, that Russian Christmas is the only religious holiday, so people don’t have to spend long amounts of time in church.
How did this happen?

In 1918, when Communists started to rule Russia, they banned Christmas, banned Christmas trees and banned Christmas traditions.
They allowed trees again in 1935, but not Christmas trees- New Year trees...
They only allowed stars with 5 points, not the Bethlehem star with 7 points.
After the Soviet Union fell, transformation back to the old traditions didn’t happen!
So Russian New Year is the most celebrated holiday! It’s a very important holiday for families to get together and enjoy each other.
Christmas is still today the only religious holiday in Russia 🇷🇺 #russian #russianchristmas #russiannewyear #holiday #russianorthodox #history #soviethistory #travelblog #travelblogger #lifeblog #lifeblogger #blog #blogger #lettucefamily
