23 October 2014. Our Great Russian Motherland… The Cruiser “Avrora” in Drydock in St Petersburg… Russia PRESERVES Its History… the USA Spits on Theirs

00 cruiser Avrora. St Petersburg RUSSIA. 23.10.14

_______________________________

This year, the historic cruiser Avrora went into drydock in St Petersburg for repairs. It was last drydocked in the ’80s. For a ship over a century old that’s still afloat, it’s in very good shape. It fired the opening shots of the October Revolution at the Winter Palace, and it was present throughout the 900 Days. Its guns were mounted in an armoured train during the VOV to help defend the city.
