  3. Hi Mogul, I have a large collection of soviet medals and order most of which is on various threads on this forum. To be honest with you I have not had a good look through my medals for a while! Vic
  4. I have been out of loop for while, so I do apologise now i things have changed in absence from the scene, But I think we will never be 100% sure weather some of these early soviet medals are genuine or not, every one will have there own opinion and personally I am happy to have them in my collection. I love seeing these early pieces and I think they are asset to any collection. Vic

  16. Soldiers in Russia will soon be looking sexier and sleeker, thanks to the talent of a top fashion designer. Valentin Yudashkin, whose clothes adorn catwalks across the world, is helping to design a modern uniform for the Russian Armed Forces. The Ministry of Defence thinks its time to upgrade the uniform to something trendier. ?The uniform hasn?t been changed since 1994. But now we need greater variety and better design for the regions,? army general Vladimir Isakov said. Well for Russian soldiers the time has come to hang up the furry hat and replace it with one pointier and sleeker. Jacket pockets are out, and shiny tassels are in. The regulation olive colour is so 2007, and now its all about aquamarine and little white gloves. ?The uniforms are modern, light and elegant, and, as I see it, very Russian. Young recruits should be at the cutting edge, they shouldn?t be deprived of anything and must be fashionable,? designer Valentin Yudashkin explained. Now Yudashkin?s new uniforms will be rolled out to the regions and tested, because while they might have the flair they must also withstand some hefty wear and tear. From Russia Today

  19. A posh black Mercedes 600 which once belonged to one of the longest-serving Soviet leaders, Leonid Brezhnev, is going under the hammer at auction in Germany. Since Brezhnev's death, thr owner of the car has been a mystery. The car?s next owner will be able to take a cruise in a piece of Soviet history. The communist leader was known for a passion for luxury, and the hand-made car was just one vehicle in his collection. In the 1960s the Mercedes 600 was believed to be the best ever vehicle in the world. The Pope, John Lennon and Chairman Mao were among its fans. Leonid Brezhnev ruled the Soviet Union from 1964 until his death in 1982, a period associated with the beginning of the USSR?s economic decay. As huge money continued to be poured into producing weapons, the country struggled to keep up with the west in the arms race. At the same time food and consumer goods began to disappear from shops. Leonid Brezhnev had to conceal his luxurious tastes. So, in public he only used Soviet limousines - the ZIL and the Chaika. But Brezhnev's infatuation with high-end cars was only a top secret for Soviet people. Western leaders were well aware of it. American President Richard Nixon presented him with a Lincoln, and the German Chancellor Willie Brandt with a cherry Mercedes. Taken from Russia Today
