This overland trip has been in the makings for years, and I started to think about it seriously when I was in Australia. I read a few books about overland travel and was fascinated by them, but I always knew that I wanted to do a big trip on public transport, because I LOVE the local experiences you get from them.  At the end of last year I decided that this would be the year, and I started properly planning the trip. It turned out to be a lot easier to organise things from home, so I decided to go back to the UK for 2 months to get visas and catch up on work before taking off again.

Coincidentally, when I was at home there was a show on British TV called Race Across the World. It's about 4 couples who travel overland from London to Singapore without taking a flight. They're racing (as the name suggests) and they only have £1300. They have checkpoints, one of which was the Hotel Uzbekistan. The fact that it was on right when I was at home was the weirdest thing - it was like a little nudge from the universe saying 'go on, you can do this'. And now I'm here! I'm not staying in the hotel (this definitely looks like an ad but it's definitely not haha) but just seeing it after it being on TV was so weird and so exciting  I still have a way to go, but it's getting closer and closer!  Tashkent, Uzbekistan. 5101 miles from London.

@elizabetheverywhere I really want to visit Uzbekistan!

@suzystories Ooh this sounds like a great tv show! Might have to try and find it. I’d love to visit Uzbekistan and especially as part of an overland trip, loving what you’re doing!

Books from the Soviet era at the Soviet Lifestyle Museum in Kazan. **
Literature was always highly valued in Russia even during times of high censorship. 
On these shelves are My Life by Trotsky, a biography of Lenin by Mayakovsky, some books about geography and foreign languages amongst others. But people also found ways to get hold of banned books. Do you have any favourite books that were once or are currently banned?

@jenniferqueenie Just reading Life and Fate w is partially set there. Jealous of your trip 😉

Following the abdication of the Tsar and the demise of the Provisional Government in October 1917, the Bolsheviks swept into power. A civil war ensued, and the Soviet Union was created under Lenin in 1922 upon the official unification of the Russian, Transcaucasian, Ukrainian and Byelorussian republics. The Soviet Union was one of the most powerful players in 20th century world history. Considered in bilateral opposition to capitalist America, they were actually often ahead of the States in regard to social equality, such as a higher figure of female in industries. This picture depicts a Soviet schoolroom, portraying a group of girls and one boy at the front listening to their classmate while portraits of Lenin and Stalin watch on. •••

Museum of Occupations and Freedom Fights in Vilniaus is located in the former KGB building. The most impressive and at the same time terrifying part of the exposition is the KGB prison, located in the basement of the building. This place has a depressing effect on the visitor. Cramped chambers with bare walls, insulators, a chamber for especially violent ones with soft walls and without windows (photo 2). But the hardest thing for me was to watch the torture chamber with a small round pedestal, on which the prisoner had to stand many hours in a row, without food or sleep, and around was ice water, into which he fell every time, losing balance (photo 4). It is also depressing to look at tiny corners for walks (photos 5,6,7,8).
But, as a historian, I was most angered by the lack of elaboration of this topic in the Russian public discourse. The theme of the work and crimes of the KGB is conveniently hushed up in the general narrative of the glorious Soviet past.
It makes me sad and a little bit ashamed. #kgbprison #vilniusmuseum #museumofoccupationsandfreedomfights #museumofoccupations #vilnius #vilniuslithuania #occupation #crimes #historyofsovietoccupation #sovietoccupation #kgb #soviethistory

Jagame teiega üht lugu sellest tubakotist, mis on säilitatud meie kogudes.
Eesti mees, Karl Süda, oli üks neist paljudest inimestest, kes Nõukogude ajal arreteeriti, põhjuseks teenistus Saksa sõjaväes. Väidetavalt põletas ta maha 20 maja Neveli linnas. Pärast sõda suutis ta end varjata August Alliku varjunime all töötades metsatöödel. 1950. aastal ta aga arreteeriti ning seoses ülekuulamisega hoiti teda ka Pagari tänaval. Karl Süda mõisteti süüdi kurikuulsa paragrahvi 58 alusel ning tema karistusmääraks sai 25+5 aastat. Karaganda vangilaagris valmistas teadmata naisvang talle ühe ilusa siidist tubakakoti. Selle paelad on tehtud Eesti lipu värvides ning nende küljes on rahvariietes tüdruk. Karli vangistus kestis 7,5 aastat kuni ta 1958. aastal amnestiaga vabastati. •

We share with you a story about this tobacco bag from our collection. Estonian man, Karl Süda, was one of the many people whom the Soviet powers arrested because of their service in the German army. Allegedly, he had burned down 20 houses in the town of Nevel. After the war, he managed to hide by using the name August Allik while working in the forest. In 1950, he was arrested and interrogated at Pagari street. Karl Süda was found guilty according to the notorious paragraph 58 and sentenced to 25 + 5 years in Gulag prison camp. At Karaganda prison camp, an unknown female prisoner made this tobacco bag for him. The bag is made of silk, decorated in Estonian tricolor and has a picture of a woman in Estonian national clothing. Karl's imprisonment lasted for 7,5 years until 1958, when he was given amnesty. •

Spotted in the Sunday Times: a new book about Witold Pilecki, whose story is one of the most incredible of the Second World War. Pilecki served as an officer in the Polish Army and joined the underground resistance after Poland’s defeat in 1939. He broke into Auschwitz concentration camp and helped organise a resistance group, broke out again to rejoin the Polish resistance, and continued fighting until he was captured and killed by the Soviets after the war. So what did you do with your weekend then? •

Everything that lives is unique... If you attempt to erase the peculiarities and individuality of life by violence, then life itself must suffocate.-Vasily Grossman, Life and Fate
Happy Sunday, dear readers 
I've started reading this alongside Stardust because I was craving a good Russian classic to complement my experience of Russia thus far. Life and Fate has been on my radar for more than a year so I'm excited to finally be getting around to it. 
This novel is often described as a post-revolutionary War and Peace. A similarly panoramic novel in which the spirit and the horrors of the age to which it refers are depicted through the lives of a family, the Shaposhnikovs. Through their experiences in the military, the gulag, a physics institute, a power station and a concentration camp the reader is to be brought into the dark world of Soviet Russia; a world of brutality and repression. 
The Soviet authorities considered it extremely dangerous, second only to perhaps Solzhenitsyn's Gulag Archipelago, and it was immediately confiscated upon its completion. 
Have you read this or would you like to read it? Do you have any favourite books about Soviet Russia or Soviet history?

@thejourneybooks @jenniferqueenie excellent choice for a buddy read. It's not easy reading but I am enjoying the character descriptions and descriptions of the war experience, both on the front and in the home, very much. I am expecting the political parts to be slow going too. 😅

This tiny monument in a small north Norwegian fishing village is probably one of the few visible markers for a little known chapter of Norwegian-Russian history.

The inscription reads (in Norwegian and Russian): In memory of Norwegians who lived in Tsyp-Navolok 1850-1940 (Though in the Russian version the name of the village is misspelled due to the transliteration of Norwegian letters. In Russian in should be Цыпнаволок.) Tsyp-Navolok is a village on the Fisher Peninsula (Fisker halvøya på norsk / Полуостров Рыбачий по Русски) on the northwest corner of Russia. The peninsula was settled in the middle of the 19th century by Norwegian fishermen. At its peak Tsyp-Navolok had 114 people.

Even though it was a Norwegian settlement, it was part of the Russian empire. The official language of education at the school was Russian. After the revolution, Tsyp-Navolok had its own selsoviet. However, in 1940 the entire Norwegian population of the village and the entire Murmansk coast was forcibly relocated to Russian Karelia as a result of Stalin's ethnic cleansing policies.

The settlement right now is occupied by military personnel as is most of the heavily militarised northern coast of the Kola Peninsula.

Eile õhtul ootas meid külla Alice, kes sündis Leningradi oblastis sõdadevahelisel ajal. Tema vaarisa jõudis sinna keisririigi ajal juba 1860. aastal ja ehitas uhke kahekorruselise maja oma päriseks ostetud krundile. Ümbruses oli teisigi eesti külasid. Rahulik elu katkes 1917. aasta lõpus, kui Alice vanaisa põgenes nelja lapsega Eestisse, kartes bolševikke. Vanaema koos seitsme lapsega jäi krundile ja Alice isa, kõige noorem laps, sai varakult taluperemeheks. 1937. aastal tuli lõhkuda oma maja ja loobuda varanduse suuremast osast, sest algas kolhoosi rajamine. 1943. aastal ei lasknud Saksa okupatsioonivõimud kellelgi jääda oma kodukohta. Kõik inimesed, kaasarvatud Alice pere, olid sunnitud minema Eestisse. Täna toimus selle nädala viimane intervjuu, kui rääkisime Üloga, kes elab Austraalias. Võrreldes teiste väliseestlastega, ei olnud tal võimalik käia eesti täienduskoolis ega suvelaagris, sest teised eestlased elasid kaugel ning 1944. aasta põgenemine jättis sügava jälje Ülo vanematele, kes eriti ei soovinud rääkida sellest teekonnast ega sellele eelnenud elust. Siiani on Ülol väga raske tagasi hoida pisaraid, kui ta räägib oma eesti juurte otsinguist 2012. aastal, mil oli ka esimene kord, kui ta külastas oma esivanemate maad. Kui enne seda elas Ülo teadmatuses oma minevikust, siis seitse aastat tagasi oli tal võimalik emmata palju sugulasi. #eestimäluinstituut #kogumelugu #oralhistory #estonianhistory #ww2 #soviethistory #leningrad #saintpetersburg #australia #väliseestlased #1917 #russianrevolution #germanoccupation #sovietoccupation #russianempire

Tchernobyl: le Radar Duga à quelques kilomètres du réacteur 4 de la centrale nucléaire était utilisé pendant l’ère soviétique en tant que système de défense anti missiles. Deux autres radars Duga se trouvaient sur le territoire soviétique, couvrant l intégralité du territoire. Ils ont opéré entre 1976 et 1989. Très puissant, fonctionnant à plus de 10MW, son système parasitait les radios amateurs, les systèmes de repérages radio aériens et les émissions radios et télé officielles, engendrant de nombreuses plaintes des pays voisins. Les signaux étaient devenus une nuisance conduisant les opérateurs à créer un système de blocage pour stopper les interférences. Son existence est restée secrète jusque la chute de l empire soviétique, invitant à de nombreuses rumeurs et spéculations sur son existence, son emplacement et son rôle. #tarkovsky #tchernobyl #chernobyl #wave #radar #duga #dugaradar #nuclearart #nuclearcthulhu #nuclearhistory #photography #reportage #antropocene #radio #surveillance #soviethistory #sovietspies #spy #history #militarysurveillance #zone #chernobylzone #zoneofexclusion #zonedexclusion #pop #stalker #filter #pop #coldwar #guerrefroide

Also on this day, the Sikorski–Mayski Agreement between Poland & the USSR was signed in London. To cite the Wikipedia article,
.
‘Its name is taken from its two most notable signatories: Polish Prime Minister Władysław Sikorski & Soviet Ambassador to the UK Ivan Mayski.
.
‘After signing the German–Soviet Nonaggression Treaty in 1939, the Soviet Union took part in the invasion of Poland & its subsequent dismemberment. The Soviet authorities declared Poland to be non-existent, & all former Polish citizens… were treated as if they were Soviet citizens. This resulted in the arrest & imprisonment of approximately 2 million Polish citizens (including a quarter of a million POWs & 1.5 million deportees by… Soviet authorities.
.
‘When the international situation of the Soviet Union changed with the outbreak of the Soviet-German War in 1941, Stalin began to seek help from other countries opposing Germany. Strongly encouraged by British Foreign Office diplomat Anthony Eden, Sikorski, on 5 July 1941, opened negotiations with the Soviet ambassador to London, Ivan Mayski, to re-establish diplomatic relations between Poland & the Soviet Union. Sikorski was the architect of the agreement reached by the two governments, signed on 30 July 1941. A further military alliance was signed in Moscow on 14 August 1941. Later that year, Sikorski went to Moscow with a diplomatic mission…
.
‘Stalin agreed to declare all previous pacts he had with Nazi Germany null & void, invalidating the September 1939 Soviet-German partition of Poland & releasing tens of thousands of Polish prisoners-of-war held in Soviet camps. Pursuant to an agreement between the Polish government-in-exile and Stalin, the Soviets granted “amnesty” to many Polish citizens on 12 August 1941, from whom a 40,000-strong army (Anders Army, later known as the Polish II Corps) was formed under General Władysław Anders. The whereabouts of thousands more Polish officers, however, would remain unknown for two more years, when it would weigh heavily on subsequent Polish-Soviet relations.’

Chernobyl: Grigorii Khmel, the driver of one of the fire engines, later described what happened:

We arrived there at 10 or 15 minutes to two in the morning ... We saw graphite scattered about. Misha asked: Is that graphite? I kicked it away. But one of the fighters on the other truck picked it up. It's hot, he said. The pieces of graphite were of different sizes, some big, some small, enough to pick them up ... We didn't know much about radiation. Even those who worked there had no idea. There was no water left in the trucks. Misha filled a cistern and we aimed the water at the top. Then those boys who died went up to the roof—Vashchik, Kolya and others, and Volodya Pravik ... They went up the ladder ... and I never saw them again. ===== Pic and story sources vary #Chernobyl #nucleardisaster #disasterrelief #disasterzone #contaminated #bravery #army #civilians #nuclearpowerplant #ukraine #soviethistory #historicphotos #historyloversclub

@dmytro_shishkin My granddad Nikolay Ivanovitch Filatov was the prisoner of. GULAG from 1946, till 1955. Never forgive, never forget.

Täna kaamera ees oli Vjatšeslav, kes elab Maardus. Ta pole kunagi varjanud, et ta on mustlane. Päritolu pärast veetis ta kolm esimest eluaastat Saksa koonduslaagrites Lätis ja Poolas, kuhu jäid igaveseks Vjatšeslavi kaks venda ja õde. Hiljem mitu korda võitis ta poksijana Eesti NSV meistritiitli kergekaalus ja käis rahvusvahelistel võistlustel Soomes, Poolas ja Tšehhoslovakkias. Väidetavalt 1960. aastatel olid kõige paremad treeningtingimused Kalevi Spordiseltsi saalis ehk Rootsi-Mihkli kirikus. Päritolu ja väike kasv andsid nii mõnele inimesele põhjust arvata, et Vjatšeslavi oli lihtne mõnitada. Tagajärjed olid saatuslikud kõigile. Mõnitajatel olid katkised lõualuud ja Vjatšeslav sattus kaks korda vanglasse, kus veetis kokku kaks noorusaastat. #eestimäluinstituut #kogumelugu #estonianhistory #oralhistory #concentrationcamp #romapeople #boxing #rootsimihklikirik #finland #eestipoks #maardu #ww2 #latvia #poland #germanoccupation #soviethistory #boxinghistory

Stalin's repressions: mass executions, departations of peoples. And happy end: all NKVD leaders killed!) (slide 2)
__
10 июля 1934-го (85 лет назад) в СССР создан Народный комиссариат внутренних дел (НКВД), в составе которого созданы Главные управления гос безопасности, рабоче-крестьянской милиции, пограничной и внутренней охраны, пожарной охраны, исправительно-трудовых лагерей и трудовых поселений.
--
Миллионы людей сосланы в лагеря ГУЛАГа и сотни тысяч приговорены к высшей мере наказания. Во многих случаях доказательства не играли особой роли, достаточно было анонимного доноса для ареста.
--
Использование «Физической диалектики наказания» было санкционировано специальным указом государства, который открыл двери многочисленным злоупотреблениям. Результатами таких операций были сотни массовых захоронений, обнаруженных позже по всей стране.
--
Архивные документы доказывают «плановую систему» массовых расстрелов. Такие планы показывали количество и соотношение жертв (официально «врагов народа») к определенным районам.
--
Семьи репрессированных, включая детей, должны были быть автоматически репрессированы, согласно приказу по НКВД № 00486.
--
Процессы проводились согласно решениям Политбюро Компартии. Среди них особенно широко известны - процесс против инженеров («Шахтинское дело»), партийной и военной элиты («фашистский заговор»), медицинского персонала («Дело врачей»).
--
По сути НКВД являлся жестким каркасом всей государственной системы страны в советское время. В 1946 году НКВД был преобразован в два ведомства — Министерство внутренних дел и Министерство государственной безопасности СССР, которые поделили между собой функции НКВД.

@abulik298 У насилие России есть приабретеная зависть к ближнему своему,вот откуда анонимные доносы. Если народ понимал друг друга они даже подумать не смогли о даносах. Современная российская общества медленно становится рациональной. Учатся задавать вопросы. Мыслить критически. Ставят авторитетов под сомнения. P.S Хороший учитель,учит находить истину. Плахой учитель говорит истину. Хороший правитель, даёт огромные возможности. Плохой правитель только говорит о возможностях. Карательная правительства боится просвещенного населения.

Today I went through the Chernobyl exclusion zone as part of a tour of the area, including a mind blowing walk around the abandoned city of Pripyat.

I have been struck by the astounding resilience of nature throughout Ukraine, and the it made me feel small and inconsequential in the best way.

It was a very sombre and humbling experience which I would recommend to anyone, it was a full-on trip but worth it.

Included in these pictures are the new safety containment system in place at Chernobyl Nuclear Power Plant Reactor 4, which was completed last year. This shell has been nicknamed 'the arch' and has replaced the previous covering of 'the sarcophagus'. Also pictured are scenes from the city of Pripyat, which is in a state of disrepair after years spent empty, looted but not forgotten. I did not expect Ukraine to be this green.

I will post more pictures at a later date, as some of the scenes were incredibly striking.

The Katyusha was a Soviet WW2 rocket launcher. It was named after a famous Soviet folk song about a girl longing for her absent beloved, who has gone away on military service. German troops coined the nickname Stalin's organ (German: Stalinorgel), comparing the visual resemblance of the launch array to a pipe organ, and the sound of the weapon's rocket motors, a distinctive howling sound which terrified the German troops, adding a psychological warfare aspect to their use. (2018, Central Naval Museum, Saint Petersburg, Russia)

This footage (with added music) captured at 7:32 PM on December 25th, 1991 by American news cameras in Moscow depicts the very last time that the crimson banner of the Soviet Union was lowered over the Moscow Kremlin, since this was shortly after the communist superpower's official dissolution. A few hours later at 11:40 PM, the pre-Bolshevik white, blue and red tricolor banner of the Russian Empire and Russian Republic was raised upon the same flagpole to symbolically mark the end of the Soviet empire as a sovereign state.

This photo for the reminder of how history comes and goes. The Kiev cake in the back corner was a uniquely Soviet invention, dating to the 1950s. It’s a meringue-based cake, filled with cashews and buttercream. (My mom often makes it with hazelnuts instead.) And now here it is, celebrating Canada Day. All the propaganda and anti-western hate and yet here we are. There are versions around the US too this week, I’d venture, decorated with an American flag.

So here is the last Russian car from my collection, moving on to U.S. classics next  The Moskvitch 408 is a small family car produced by the Soviet car manufacturer AZLK between 1964 and 1975. There were two distinct series of the 408, which both used the same name and what nowadays would be called a mid-lifecycle restyling.

The first series of cars were produced between 1964 and 1969 in Moscow, and such is the one you see on the pictures. These automobiles had vertical rear lights, two or four round headlights (see vintage ad on the last slide) and a 4-speed manual transmission with column mounted gear lever. The car had modern features for 1964: squared-off body with flat roof panel and sharp tailfins, panoramic rear window and semi-panoramic windshield. Deluxe versions had then-fashionable quad headlights and two-tone paint. The rear end design of the pre-facelift 408 models inherited such characteristic features of the previous 407 series as tailfins decorated with chrome trim, narrow taillights and a fuel tank flap in the middle, behind the number plate. The car sold well in both the Soviet Union and other Eastern Bloc countries and went for export too. Export models had 4 headlights but the one on pics has 2 for some reason. The car was sold as the Moskvitsh Elite, Elite De Luxe and Elite 1300 in Finland.

My very light, very cheery summer reading pile. Please send help. If you're not familiar with him, Grossman was a Soviet-Jewish writer whose epic work, Life & Fate, set in WWII and centred on Stalingrad, was confiscated by the KGB upon completion in 1960. It was eventually smuggled out of the USSR and published in the west in 1980. What amazes me is the book clocks in at 855 pages of teeny text. Meanwhile, a typical long reads online now is, what, 20 minutes? We are weak. But I'm loving it already, starting with the opening page. I don't often fall in love with sentences on opening pages anymore.⠀

The repressed Yiddish writers translates to “murdered by Stalin in the basement of Lubyanka prison, on the night of Aug. 12, 1952.”⠀

And Tanya Talaga should need no introduction to any Canadian, except to say Canada Day just came and went, and while I'm reading up on the history that drove my parents to seek safety and freedom in this country, I feel obligated to learn about the people who were pushed out, beaten down and killed to make room for us and our 3 suitcases.⠀

@punkybrewstah The Talaga book is a relentless read, in a way. But important.

@leazelt @punkybrewstah I’m a little scared to read it. The Soviet stuff is hard enough, and that’s in the past! But even being able to pick and choose when I learn about these things that I don’t have to live through is such a privilege. So…

Iosif Vissarionovich Dzhugashvili (Comrade Koba) born Dec. 18, 1878, Gori, Georgia, Russian Empire, died March 5, 1953, Moscow, Russia, U.S.S.R. He joined an underground revolutionary group and sided with the Bolshevik faction of the Russian Social-Democratic Workers' Party in 1903. A disciple of Vladimir Lenin, he served in minor party posts and was appointed to the first Bolshevik Central Committee (1912). .

Here we present a very rare uniform, the parade uniform of Marshal of Armor Pavel Poluboyarov.  Though not visible in these simple photos, the uniform has many details that mark it as authentic.  The more detailed photo gallery on our website will thoroughly document these.  It offers us the opportunity to observe a rare uniform, but also the career of a remarkable Soviet officer who served from the revolution to the height of the Cold War.

@sovietuniforms Wonderful uniform and great addition to tour collection! ❤️

The GAZ Pobeda from my previous post was fully developed by Soviet engineers and designers, even though some may argue it resembles Chevys from the same era. However this Moskvich is a different case being an exact copy of Opel Kadett.

The Moskvitch 400 is a Soviet car that was introduced in 1947. In 1940 and 1941 500 units of the KIM 10-50, the first Soviet compact car, were produced. It was inspired by the similar-sized four-door Ford Prefect and, despite its low price, equipped with many features. However, national priorities changed with the German invasion in summer 1941, and production of the car was halted and not resumed after the war. At war's end, the Soviet Union considered the plans and blueprints for the 1939 Opel Kadett K38 to be part of the war reparations package since the Russelsheim factory was largely intact. Soviets took the Kadett production info and loaded 56 freight cars bound for Moscow and the newly built Stalin Factory. Development began in 1944, following a prewar plan to produce a domestically built car able to be used and maintained by citizens living outside major cities. The KIM factory was selected to build the car, with their Ford's copy model. But Stalin personally chose in June 1945 an Opel Kadett to become the first mass-produced popular Soviet car. The Soviet Union was not the only country to adopt the design at that time: the Kadett had heavily inspired the Renault Juvaquatre produced in 1937-1960.

The 400 went on sale in Western Europe in 1950, making it a very early Soviet automotive export product, priced below the Morris Minor, Ford Prefect and Anglia. Motor magazine praised its engine's quietness and the quality of the ride.
