Bright Moments in Life of USSR People


Some call those photos propaganda, some are being nostalgic and think this was the best of what happened to Russia and her people ever. Those photos are very bright and show a really bright side of life in the state which disappeared long ago. There are no actors in the photos, no models, just people caught having a good time. Take a look at this really interesting set of photos.
