Friends, here is a very interesting question. I regularly read and often respond to comments in his blog — some of them leave fans of the USSR, who did not want to accept the fact that this country no longer exists, and otherwise try to “return”.
Personally, I find it surprising and wonder — the world has moved on, life has become better, scoop everything just slowed down. If you compare life in Eastern Europe now and 30 years ago — the difference is fundamental. I know whereof I speak — as happened in all socialist countries, including Hungary, Poland, the Czech Republic, Romania, Bulgaria and Germany — the modern Warsaw infrastructure is practically no different from Paris, and 30 years ago it was dirty and dilapidated Soviet city, with poor women in the transitions.
So in today’s post — to talk about what fight fans of the USSR. In General, make sure you check out the article below, write your opinion in the comments, and of friends added do not forget. And telegram channel also subscribe)
02. For starters, let’s run and see how looked Soviet life in different countries of the so-called “Socialist camp.” My parents in 1990 rode in Poland and personally saw the remnants of all this scoop, which is deadly tired of the poles for nearly half a century of its existence. That looked so Soviet, Polish butcher shops — no different from those in some Saratov or Torzhok.
03. But it’s a Polish liquor store — which is also almost indistinguishable from the USSR-ovsky. Guys in fur hats and greasy baggy jackets earthy colors, plastic boxes, dirt — scoop was the same everywhere.
04. Turn over rotten tomatoes near the store, the same as in the USSR, more-or-less normal products merchants is sold directly at the store, later punching the cash register is much lower cost and putting the difference in his pocket. And Yes, even for such smelly tomatoes lined up in a long queue. And also pay attention to the dreary rows of canned goods in the window.
05. And here, too, the Polish scoop some dirty shop with an infinite place where there are parents with children. Perhaps the only difference is that the poles are not doing so at the cash register as citizens of the Union, and patiently fighting for their turn so to speak in a more civilized manner.
06. Go ahead. Romania. During the scoop, this was backward and hungry country, in comparison with which even the stores neighboring Ukraine seemed an abundance in the Soviet Romanian stores in literally nothing but sunflower oil. Here are the endless queues of people in drab clothes lined up everywhere, where at least something “dumped” on sale:
07. Generally frames shovels Bucharest — what’s the scoop reproduces itself in any part of the planet pharmacy with precision — anywhere there is a dirt, deficiency, dullness, queues, and anger. Here’s an example of some Soviet market go to pot in the centre of Bucharest. From the range — some sour apples, and it’s in southern Romania! If the scoop fell to the desert sand then there would be a deficit.
08. And even for these smelly apples, people lined up under the cloudy winter sky in a long queue. Apples is vitamins for children and some Apple pie tonight for my husband — Soviet life skills in impoverished and unfriendly city were taught not to miss such opportunities.
09. It should be noted that the scoop in Romania was perhaps the most frostbitten of all the countries of the Eastern bloc dictator Ceausescu was constantly brought people to the congresses in honor of their own support, were forced to hang their portraits in every office, and dealt with the dissenters by the secret police Securitate — which simply kidnapped disagreed with Ceausescu, and never seen.
10. Footage of the Romanian school since the scoop — the pioneers, a portrait of the leader and all that. At the end of the scoop so sick of Ceausescu Romanians, they staged an armed uprising and literally tore the tyrant and his wife Helen — ambitious and silly woman, who actually ruled the country.
11. Go ahead. Bulgaria. This Sunny South country, where there is any stick — hang stick to the land — scoops managed to turn into a rather grim and impoverished place, where people tried to escape. Bulgaria Soviet era of Todor Zhivkov — it is dirty, poor and hopeless country, with the capital city Sofia, disfigured, depressed panel areas.
12. No, the photo below is not of Murmansk and Sofia since the scoop — old overcrowded transport full of impoverished people in the background — high gray fence, Lenin statue and Soviet COP in uniform.
13. Stores in Soviet Bulgaria looked exactly the same as at home — the endless rows of monotonous loaf that needed to be touched is tied on a string Shoe horn, to see if you score the loaf nails or to wait. Clean out the trays from the machine in trays of store always that a few loaves fell on the floor, then raised them and put back.
14. But to look like Bulgarian Soviet supermarkets in the eighties — as you can see, they are also a little different from the USSR-ovsky in terms of range. All the same vinegar canned food and endless rows of butter.
I could go on and on to tell you, for example, about the GDR — the impoverished and disenfranchised of the country, where he worked for the secret police, the Stasi, that brought the dissidents to the madness, and persecuted punks and any youth movement. You can also recall Czechoslovakia and Hungary — the inhabitants of these countries rebelled for freedom and against Soviet tyranny — all the uprising harshly suppressed by Soviet tanks.
None of the Soviet dictators in Eastern Europe did not want to leave on good terms — East Germany was reunited when the Soviet Union weakened, and people were able to destroy the Berlin wall, which scoops fenced off from the rest of the world. Todor Zhivkov in Bulgaria deposed relatively peacefully — but he handed out all the tips, what kind of scoop should be in the country. Well, Ceausescu’s Romania had to dump with the help of an armed uprising — so it all got. By the way, despite the fact that the Pro-government media told the tale of “national support conducator Nicolae Ceausescu 98%” — none of it particularly not stood up, except for a couple of dozen secret services, personally involved in crimes against the people.
Now all the above countries is highly developed and peaceful countries in Europe, with a steadily growing GDP and improving life. I have personally seen how it looks there — to them we are still very, very far away. Last year, Poland moved from developing to developed countries (became the First country in the world), and recently trump made bezviz in the United States for the poles.
And here’s my question — what fighting all lovers of the scoop and the Soviet Union? Why would they protect a scoop, poverty and misery? No scoop to live much better.
Write in the comments what you think about all this, I wonder.
