Photographer's Note

I had ate something few minutes before and became very bad when I arrived in the Garden Ring, an area where the old ramparts of Moscow where located some day and today is a huge avenue around the city.
In this area Stalin decided to build many skyscrapers to show Russians could to compete with New York, I will post these buildings ahead. Here we have a modern building, created few years ago and using the Stalinist design as a reference.
At side you can see a statue of a man with a rifle, it is a homage to Kalashnikov, the man who invented one of most popular and famous guns in the world, loved by armies and terrorists.
Here you can't see, but the monument is divided in two parts, five meters ahead there is a big statue of Saint Michael killing the evil (looks like Saint George statue, but it isn't), it is a reference to the fact the rifle was created not to produce evil, but to combat the evil. Of course many people don't agree with this point of view.
I added two extra images: You can see the Saint Michel and many rifles at side. Pay attention in the face of Saint Michael. Am I creating fantasies in my mind or the face of the saint is similar with Vladimir Putin ?

Poucos minutos antes eu havia comido um peda蔞 de doce e isso fez piorar minha doen蓷. Alcancei ent緌 o Anel dos Jardins, uma 嫫ea onde outrora ficavam as muralhas de Moscou e que agora servem como um anel vi嫫io ao redor da cidade. Stalin mandou erguer grandes arranha-c徼s nessa avenida apenas para dizer que n緌 era s Nova Iorque que podia fazer pr嶮ios grandes. Daqui uns dias vou mostrar esses pr嶮ios aqui.
Vemos na foto um pr嶮io novinho em folha e que usou o estilo dos pr嶮ios stalinistas como refer瘽cia. Reparem que h uma est嫢ua no lado com um homem segurando um rifle. uma homenagem a Kalashnikov, o inventor da arma mais popular do mundo moderno, amada por ex廨citos e terroristas.
Voc瘰 n緌 podem ver aqui, mas o monumento tem duas partes, mais adiante o monumento tem uma est嫢ua de S緌 Miguel combatendo o drag緌 (parece S緌 Jorge, mas n緌 ), isso uma refer瘽cia ao fato de que consideram que a arma foi feita n緌 para produzir o mal, mas combater o mal, obviamente nem todos concordam com isso.
Coloquei duas fotos extras para que voc瘰 vejam o monumento, pode ser que eu esteja vendo coisas, mas acho que o rosto de S緌 Miguel bem parecido com a cara do Vladimir Putin.
