Сеть выходит в океан: Флот, который попытаются продать Трампу

Нельзя сказать, что «поутру они проснулись». Разработка новых ударных средств была запущена еще до того, как господа адмиралы решили концептуально подытожить опыт боевой службы ВМС США на рубеже столетий. В частности, флот активно ищет дальнобойное противокорабельное оружие.

Watch ABC News' Jonathan Karl Wilt In The Face Of Sean Spicer

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); In an appearance in the White House Briefing Room on Saturday, Press Secretary Sean Spicer participated in a strange sort of interaction for which New York University journalism professor Jay Rosen struggled to find a name. Was it a briefing? An announcement? Some sort of clarification session? Hard to say! What it seemed to be was some sort of Two-Minute Hate on the media and available factual evidence that lasted well beyond the two minutes. This was supposed to be the “on time and under budget” presidency, I thought? Anyway, it was a strange display. And ABC News’ Jonathan Karl seemed particularly hot about it on Sunday’s edition of “This Week”: .@jonkarl: In first briefing room appearance, Sean Spicer said three things that were "demonstrably false": "Credibility matters." #ThisWeek pic.twitter.com/I9YTJnatCU— This Week (@ThisWeekABC) January 22, 2017   KARL: On his very first appearance in the briefing room, Sean Spicer went in there and uttered at least three things that were demonstrably false .... I think the biggest problem was that he left without taking a single question. I’ve never seen a White House press secretary do that. That said, I think that we need to be careful as reporters and as journalists not to take the bait and not to get into an endless discussion about issues that are trivial. How many people were there, the crowd size ― just not important.  “Telling the truth is absolutely important, especially from that podium,” he added, “Sean is no longer the RNC spokesperson, he’s no longer a campaign spokesperson. He’s speaking on behalf of the White House, the executive branch of the United States. Credibility matters.” So we flash forward to Monday, Sean Spicer’s first official press conference with the White House press corps. Karl was there, armed with his “credibility matters” maxim and his “don’t get bogged down in trivia” guideline at the ready. And sure enough, he got the opportunity to ask Spicer a question. All right, man. Like OutKast says: “Don’t pull that thang out unless you plan to bang. Don’t even bang unless you plan to hit something.” KARL: Thanks for being here, first briefing, great to see you. Before I get to a policy question, just a question about the nature of your job. Is it your intention to always tell the truth from that podium, and will you pledge to knowingly never say something that is not factual? Oh, man. I think you pulled that thang out without a corresponding plan to bang. SPICER: It is. It’s an honor to do this. And, yes, I believe we have to be honest with the American people. I think sometimes we can disagree with the facts. There are certain things that we may not fully understand when we come out. Our intention is never to lie to you, Jonathan. Our job is to make sure ― sometimes you’re in the same boat. I mean, there are times when you guys tweet something out or write a story and you publish a correction. That doesn’t mean that you were intentionally trying to deceive readers and the American people, does it? And I think we should be afforded the same opportunity. There are times when we believe something to be true or we get something from an agency or we act in haste because the information available wasn’t complete. But our desire is to communicate with the American people and make sure you have the most complete story at the time, so we do it. Again, I think that when you look, net, we ― we’re going to do our best every time we can. I’m going to come out here and tell you the facts as I know them. If we make a mistake, we’ll do our best to correct it. As I mentioned the other day, it is a two-way street. There are many mistakes the media makes all the time. They misreport something, they don’t report something, they get a fact wrong. I don’t think that that’s always to turn around and say you were intentionally lying. I think we all try to do our best job and do it with a degree of integrity in our respective industries. OK, that leaned a little heavy on some “both sides do it” logic, but it’s true that reporters make mistakes and make corrections, and the more important thing is that Spicer is actually conceding the point that he provided incorrect information by likening his situation to that of the press. So, time now for Karl to get to his policy question, which I’m sure he prepared for in such a way that he can detect if Spicer is telling the truth or not. KARL: Do you have any corrections you would like to make or clarifications? SPICER: Well, sure. ask away, Jonathan. What are you doing, man? Don’t go in so open-ended on that. If you’ve a point in mind, make it. KARL: For instance, I don’t want to re-litigate the whole issue, but take one, the issue of Metro ridership. You made a statement ― SPICER: We did. At the time, the information I was provided by the inaugural committee came from an outside agency that we reported on. And I think knowing what we know now, we can tell that WMATA’s numbers were different, but we were trying to provide numbers that we had been provided. That wasn’t like we made them up out of thin air. Just a little over 24 hours ago, Karl said, on TV: “I think that we need to be careful as reporters and as journalists not to take the bait and not to get into an endless discussion about issues that are trivial. How many people were there, the crowd size ― just not important.” I miss that guy! Where’d he go? KARL: Do you stand by your statement that that was the most watched inaugural ― No, no, no, don’t change the subject! “Viewership” is a much more difficult thing to measure than “attendance” or “public transportation ridership.” If you’re not careful ... SPICER: Sure. It was the most watched inaugural. When you look at ― look, you look at just one network alone got 16.9 million people online. Another couple of the networks, there were tens of millions of people that watched that online. Never mind that the audience that was here, 31 million people watched it on television, combine that with the tens of millions of people that watched it online on a device. There’s ― it’s unquestionable. I don’t ― and I don’t see any numbers that dispute that. When you add up attendance, viewership, total audience in terms of tablets, phones, on television, I’d love to see any information that proves that otherwise. So, do you dispute that? Sigh. If you’re not careful, Spicer is going to filibuster and turn it right back around on you. KARL: Well, I don’t want to get into numbers. You were the one who brought numbers up! SPICER: Well, I do. I mean, I’m just saying if you’re asking me a question about my integrity, I have a right to say, if you add up the network streaming numbers, Facebook, YouTube, all of the various live streamings that we have information on so far, I don’t think there’s any question that it was the largest watched inauguration ever. KARL: More than Ronald Reagan’s in 1981 ― SPICER: I’m pretty sure that Reagan didn’t have YouTube, Facebook or the internet. So there you have it. Reagan didn’t have YouTube. Minutes later, another reporter in the room decided to do some further pressing on this matter, and Spicer conceded that the in-attendance crowd was not as big as other inaugurations (while holding to his “most watched ever” around the globe point). So, yeah, this was a great journalistic exercise. Oddly enough, later on in the press briefing, Spicer claimed that the way the media was treating the Trump administration had left him feeling demoralized. How is that? Spicer used to be a spokesman for the Republican National Committee. It was his job to try to demoralize the Obama White House. He knows how this works. Besides, if he’s feeling demoralized, he can literally go do anything else with his life. Teach math to Rust Belt schoolkids. Go on walkabout in the Australian outback. He’s not a hostage. No one has a gun to Spicer’s head. Least of all, Jonathan Karl. ~~~~~ Jason Linkins edits “Eat The Press” for The Huffington Post and co-hosts the HuffPost Politics podcast “So, That Happened.” Subscribe here, and listen to the latest episode below. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Great Moments In Roomfuls Of Men Legislating Women's Bodies

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); On Monday, President Donald Trump signed an anti-abortion executive order that significantly affects reproductive health access for women around the world.  The Mexico City policy, also known as the global gag rule, prohibits giving U.S. funding to international nongovernmental organizations that offer or advise on a wide range of family-planning and reproductive-health options if they include abortion ― even if U.S. dollars are not specifically used for abortion-related services. It was first put in place by President Ronald Reagan in 1984, and has been rescinded and reinstated, depending on the political party of the president. Trump signed this executive order in a room full of other men.  Trump follows a long tradition of male politicians making decisions about women’s bodies without women in the room. Here’s a look at some of them: In 2003, President George W. Bush signed the Partial Birth Abortion Ban Act, which outlawed doctors from knowingly performing a certain abortion procedure. He was surrounded by an all-male group of congressmen when he did so.  In 2013, there were only men at a House hearing on banning abortions at 20 weeks of pregnancy and later. In 1991, Anita Hill had to face a Senate Judiciary Committee composed entirely of white men when describing the sexual harassment she faced from Clarence Thomas, President George H.W. Bush’s choice for the Supreme Court. At times, the senators didn’t seem to fully understand the gravity of Hill’s accusations.  Signing budget - no mention of vetoes yet. pic.twitter.com/IgyRmtWf9d— Karen Kasler (@karenkasler) June 30, 2013 In 2013, Ohio Gov. John Kasich (R) ― surrounded by a bunch of men ― signed a budget that included language to defund Planned Parenthood, require ultrasound tests for women seeking abortions, and impose new restrictions on abortion clinics.  In 2012, the House Oversight and Government Reform Committee held a hearing on religious liberty and the Obama administration’s contraception rule. The morning panel at the hearing consisted exclusively of men from conservative religious organizations. “What I want to know is, where are the women?” Rep. Carolyn Maloney (D-N.Y.) asked then-Chairman Darryl Issa (R-Calif.) before walking out of the hearing after the first panel. “I look at this panel, and I don’t see one single individual representing the tens of millions of women across the country who want and need insurance coverage for basic preventative health care services, including family planning.

Poll: Trump’s opening weekend gets lowest approval of modern era

But while Trump’s first approval rating is improved from the poor reviews Americans gave to his presidential transition, it is also lower than previous presidents — a sign Trump has entered the White House without the same support from Americans that others have enjoyed.

Donald Trump Signs Anti-Abortion Executive Order Surrounded By Men

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); WASHINGTON ― On Monday, surrounded by other white men, President Donald Trump signed an anti-abortion executive order that has far-reaching consequences for women’s reproductive health access worldwide.  Trump reinstated the Mexico City policy, also known as the global gag rule, which was first put in place by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. It prohibits giving U.S. funding to nongovernmental organizations that offer or advise on a wide range of family planning and reproductive health options if they include abortion ― even if U.S. dollars are not specifically used for abortion-related services.  The United States spends about $600 million a year on international assistance for family planning and reproductive health programs, making it possible for 27 million women and couples to access contraceptive services and supplies. None of that money is spent on performing abortions. The Helms amendment has prevented U.S. tax dollars from funding overseas abortions since 1973. Proponents of the global gag rule believe the policy is nevertheless still necessary, arguing that Helms isn’t strong enough by itself.  The executive order is one of the first Trump has signed since taking office. Sitting in the Oval Office Monday, he also signed ones freezing federal hiring and withdrawing from the Trans-Pacific Partnership trade deal. A pan of the people standing by his side showed that there were few, if any, women present.  Trump’s executive order has severe implications and could be deadly for women and girls in developing countries and conflict zones, who often resort to dangerous methods of ending their pregnancies when they lack access to safe abortion. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 21 million women a year have unsafe abortions in developing countries, accounting for about 13 percent of all maternal deaths.  The policy is rescinded and reinstated based on which party is in power. President Bill Clinton did away with it, President George W. Bush put it back and then President Barack Obama rescinded it again when he took office. Trump’s Cabinet is more white and more male than any president’s first Cabinet since Reagan. -- This feed and its contents are the property of The Huffington Post, and use is subject to our terms.

Трамп подписал указ о выходе США из Транстихоокеанского партнерства

Президент США Дональд Трамп подписал ряд новых исполнительных указов, в том числе о выходе из числа стран, имеющих договоренности о создании нового регионального экономического объединения - Транстихоокеанского партнерства (ТТП), сообщает ТАСС. Дональд Трамп. фото: EPA/Olivier Douliery / POOL Краткая церемония подписания состоялась в присутствии журналистов в Овальном кабинете Белого дома. Торговый договор предполагает полную отмену таможенных пошлин на товары и услуги в Азиатско-Тихоокеанском регионе. Соглашение подписано Австралией, Брунеем, Вьетнамом, Канадой, Малайзией, Мексикой, Новой Зеландией, Перу, Сингапуром, Чили и Японией. На долю стран, входящих в ТТП, приходится почти 40% мирового ВВП и более четверти оборота мировой торговли. Трамп в недавнем прошлом неоднократно сигнализировал о своем намерении отказаться от поддержки объединения в случае победы на президентских выборах в США. Подписав указ, он охарактеризовал свои действия как "замечательную вещь для американских трудящихся". Кроме того, новый американский лидер поставил подпись под указом, в соответствии с которым на нынешнем уровне замораживается численность служащих федерального правительства и вводится запрет на его дальнейшее расширение. Действие данного документа распространяется на всех служащих федеральных властей, "кроме военных", подчеркнул Трамп. Наконец, президент-республиканец подписал указ, который восстанавливает запрет на выделение федеральными властями США средств иностранным неправительственным организациям, медицинский персонал которых делает аборты или предоставляет о них информацию. Этот запрет был введен президентом Рональдом Рейганом, который входил в ряды Республиканской партии США, в 1985 году. Затем запрет отменяли президенты-демократы Билл Клинтон (в 1993 году) и Барак Обама (в 2009 году). Республиканец Джордж Буш-младший действие запрета восстанавливал.

Trump Strikes at Abortion With a Revived Foreign-Aid Rule

Trump revives funding ban to groups providing abortion overseas

If there was any doubt about President Donald Trump’s stance on abortion, he settled it Monday by using an executive order to bar U.S. aid to groups that provide or promote the procedure overseas. The decision to reinstate the Republican policy known as the “Mexico City policy,” or the “global gag rule,” was delivered a day after the 44th anniversary of the Roe v. Wade decision legalizing abortion and two days after the Women's March on Washington and similar events across the country drew crowds to rally for reproductive rights, among other issues. During the presidential campaign, Trump vowed to appoint "pro-life" Supreme Court justices. He said that if the Roe decision is overturned, the question of whether abortion is legal would go back to individual states. The Mexico City policy has been instituted by every Republican president since Ronald Reagan and rescinded by Democratic presidents. It prohibits NGOs that receive federal funding — including health care providers or organizations — from providing or promoting abortion or from advocating for abortion laws abroad. The policy was issued by executive order, just as it has been done by past Republican presidents, often within days of taking office. It comes on the heels of a sweeping order Trump signed Friday evening encouraging federal agencies to dismantle large parts of Obamacare. Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.) said Trump's move puts "ideological politics over women and families' futures,"adding she would introduce bipartisan legislation to reverse the policy. Abortion-right s group NARAL immediately issued a statement Monday condemning Trump's move. "It's telling that one of Trump's first executive actions combines two of his favorite things: silencing anyone who disagrees with him and repressing women," the group said. "With this action, Donald Trump has turned his anti-women rhetoric into policy, and made it more difficult for women and families all over the world to access vital reproductive care. He really is living up to the lowest of expectations.”

Donald Trump Reinstates Ronald Reagan's Abortion 'Global Gag Rule'

function onPlayerReadyVidible(e){'undefined'!=typeof HPTrack&&HPTrack.Vid.Vidible_track(e)}!function(e,i){if(e.vdb_Player){if('object'==typeof commercial_video){var a='',o='m.fwsitesection='+commercial_video.site_and_category;if(a+=o,commercial_video['package']){var c='&m.fwkeyvalues=sponsorship%3D'+commercial_video['package'];a+=c}e.setAttribute('vdb_params',a)}i(e.vdb_Player)}else{var t=arguments.callee;setTimeout(function(){t(e,i)},0)}}(document.getElementById('vidible_1'),onPlayerReadyVidible); WASHINGTON ― In one of his first acts as president, Donald Trump has reinstated a federal ban on U.S. funding for international health organizations that counsel women on family planning options that include abortion.  The Mexico City policy, also known as the global gag rule, was first put in place by President Ronald Reagan in 1984. It prohibits giving U.S. funding to nongovernmental organizations that offer or advise on a wide range of family planning and reproductive health options if they include abortion ― even if U.S. dollars are not specifically used for abortion-related services.  Since then, the gag rule has been something of a political football, rescinded and reinstated as soon as presidents take office. President Bill Clinton did away with the rule, President George W. Bush reinstated it and then President Barack Obama again revoked it in 2009.  Trump’s executive order Monday comes one day after the anniversary of Roe v. Wade, the landmark 1973 Supreme Court case that guaranteed a woman’s right to have an abortion, and the week of the annual March for Life in Washington, D.C. The United States spends about $600 million a year on international assistance for family planning and reproductive health programs, making it possible for 27 million women and couples to access contraceptive services and supplies. None of that money is spent on performing abortions. The Helms Amendment has prevented U.S. tax dollars from funding overseas abortions since 1973. Proponents of the global gag rule believe the policy is nevertheless still necessary, arguing that Helms isn’t strong enough by itself.  But the Guttmacher Institute and other opponents of the gag rule say that such restrictions have devastating effects on international organizations, often forcing them to close their clinics or reduce their services, denying women access to help from safe providers and even hampering HIV prevention efforts.  “In reality, attempts to stop abortion through restrictive laws ― or by withholding family planning aid ― can never eliminate abortion, because those methods do not eliminate women’s need for abortion. ... Where abortion is permitted on broad legal grounds, it is generally much safer than where it is highly restricted,” Guttmacher wrote in a 2015 report.  The policy has severe implications and could be deadly for women and girls in developing countries and conflict zones, who often resort to dangerous methods of ending their pregnancies when they lack access to safe abortion. The World Health Organization estimates that more than 21 million women a year have unsafe abortions in developing countries, accounting for about 13 percent of all maternal deaths.  Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), the only woman on the Senate Foreign Relations Committee, told Foreign Policy that she is planning a legislative response to the reinstatement of global gag rule. “I will continue to stand up to President Trump and Republican leadership in Congress who are intent on rolling back women’s access to reproductive healthcare, and will soon be introducing bipartisan legislation aimed to repeal the Global Gag Rule for good,” the senator said. “Women around the world deserve to make important personal health care decisions without politicians in Washington interfering.” Want more updates from Amanda Terkel?

Conway tweets story that differs from Spicer's claim on inauguration audience

Less than 48 hours after new White House press secretary Sean Spicer insisted that the audience for President Donald Trump’s inauguration was the largest ever, incoming counselor to the president Kellyanne Conway referenced a story saying viewership for Friday’s swearing-in was the “second biggest” in history.Conway, fresh off a weekend in which she defended demonstrably false statements about inauguration attendance and viewership by White House Press Secretary Sean Spicer as “alternative facts,” linked to an Entertainment Weekly article on her Twitter account, publishing the headline “Trump Inauguration Ratings Second Biggest in 36 Years.” That story contradicts what Spicer said during an impromptu press conference Saturday evening, when he told reporters that, “this was the largest audience to ever witness an inauguration — period — both in person and around the globe."Spicer’s claim that Trump’s inauguration crowd was the largest ever has been shown to be inaccurate through the use of aerial photographs comparing it to the 2009 inauguration of former President Barack Obama, which packed the National Mall with significantly more people than Friday’s ceremony.Calculating the overall global viewership for Trump’s inauguration would be nearly impossible, but in the U.S., it was viewed by 30.6 million Americans, according to Nielsen ratings. That would put Trump’s inaugural ceremony behind that of former Presidents Ronald Reagan (41.8 million viewers in 1981), Obama (37.7 million in 2009), Jimmy Carter (34.1 million in 1977) and Richard Nixon (33 million in 1973).The Nielsen numbers do not include viewers who watched on online livestreams, options that would not have been available to those watching most past inaugural ceremonies. CNN said that it hosted 16.9 million online viewers on its website, a number that fell short of the 25 million who watched Obama’s 2009 inauguration on the cable news giant’s site.

Одной из особенностей кадровой политики нового президента США, инаугурация которого проходит сегодня, стало то, что руководителями в два ключевых силовых министерства страны выбраны отставные генералы морской пехоты Джеймс Мэттис и Джон Келли. Вероятно, Дональд Трамп, которого часто сравнивают с Рональдом Рейганом, принял во внимание такие его слова: «Многие люди тратят всю свою жизнь в поисках ответа на вопрос: смогли ли они изменить что-то в мире?

Гудым. Советская ядерная база у границ США

Самая таинственная и труднодоступная заброшка находится на Чукотке - ядерная военная часть Анадырь-1 или, как называют её местные, Гудым. Появилась она в начале 60-х годов для размещения ядерных ракет поближе к возможному противнику, то есть США. База была супер-секретной, местные знали только что поблизости какая-то воинская часть.Сердце Гудыма - огромная бетонная "нора" со складами для хранения и обслуживания ядерных ракет. Как и каким образом её "грызли" в вечной мерзлоте для меня загадка. Кроме военного объекта, был ещё городок, где проживали служащие и их семьи.Впрочем, в традиционной попытке всех "жестко переиграть", мы переиграли, главным образом, самих себя. 8 декабря 1987 года в Вашингтоне состоялась советско-американская встреча на высшем уровне, в ходе которой Горбачёв и Рейган подписали бессрочный "Договор о ликвидации ракет средней и малой дальности", после чего с базы вывезли всё вооружение. Некоторое время подземные помещения использовать как базу хранения Анадырского военного гарнизона, но в 2002 году Гудым полностью забросили.Сегодня это город-призрак. Что было более-менее ценное разворовали. Тем не менее, несмотря на прогнившие станы домов и облупленную краску подземных тоннелей, можно увидеть грандиозные масштабы Гудыма...Склады по пути к базе. Кругом валяются крылатые ракеты. Судя по всему учебные. На панораме они слева у синей бочки:3. Их тут очень много. Не считал, но навскидку штук 20:4. 5. Закрылки на ракете:6. Внутри какие-то шары:7. 8. Итак, Гудым. Через 3 дня после меня в Анадырь приезжал Шойгу и должен был посещать эту заброшенную базу. Сейчас этот объект никем не охраняется и никому не нужен, но может скоро сюда повесят замок и тогда я стану последним блогером, кто побывал внутри:9. На подъезде к нему незаметный ДОТ:10. Крупнее:11. Вход в главный военный объект, где хранились ракеты:12. Туда прямо на машине заехали. Внутри длинный коридор с ответвлениями. В ответвления не совались, а по туннелю проехали:13. Тоннель закрывается массивной бронированной дверью, весом в 40 тонн (вес среднего танка). Время закрытия примерно 2 минуты:14. Пульт рядом с дверью:15. Объект имеет полную противоатомную защиту, рассчитан на бомбежки с воздуха:16. Интересно, конечно, куда ведут эти ответвления, но изучать не решились:17. Второй выход:18. Признаки бывшей охраны военного объекта:19. Но сейчас Гудым охраняют только евражки:20. 21. Зловещие инсталляции оставлены, по видимому, редкими путешественниками. Местным до этого точно нет дела, они выпиливают последние двери:22. Военный городок сейчас полностью разрушен и разворован. Не представляет интереса в качестве "заброшки", так как тут ничего не осталось:23. Местные приезжают сюда как на склад стройматериалов и тащат всё, что не приколочено. Я видел 3 машины с бригадами, которые отдирали доски и бревна от домов и грузили на прицепы:24. Какой-то интерес может вызвать бывший торговый центр:25. Для военного городка на крайнем севере он немаленький:26. Здания:27. 28. 29. Бывший штаб:30. Внутри полная разруха:31. 32. Надпись: "В карауле, как на войне - будь бдительным вдвойне". Это карцер:33. Помещение охранников:34. 35. Комната отдыха:36. Вход в тюрьму:37. Камеры:38. Мягко скажем, небольшие:39. Напоследок, короткая экспозиция неизвестного военного автора:40. В следующем посте я покажу более оптимистичное место - Анадырский поселок Угольные Копи. Stay Tuned!Подписаться на обновленияЯ в других социальных сетях:
