Italians Get a New Source about Russia


29.03.2010

The first issue of an eight-page Russia Today, a supplement to the popular Italian daily la Repubblica, has been issued today, reports ITAR-TASS.

The issue has been prepared by a Moscow-based newspaper Rossiiskaya Gazeta. The supplement will be issued once a month, and will go with Rome and Milan editions of la Repubblica. The project is supposed to raise awareness of the local population about Russia-related events. Apart from that, starting from August 2010 the Russia Today section will be available on the official newspaper's website.

Of note, Rossiiskaya Gazeta runs similar projects in the USA, the UK, France, India, Brazil, Bulgaria and Argentina.

Soviet cars are greeted with welcoming car klaxons honking on the streets of New York, Berlin or Tokyo. It's a long time since German students bought Zhiguli cars, and French farmers acquired Lada Niva. As of today, collectors are chasing Volga, Pobeda (Victory) and Moskvich (Muscovite), which are exhibited in museums and in public squares. For many foreigners, Soviet cars are curiosity and novelty, but for Russian compatriots they symbolize nostalgia and connection with their homeland.
Every year in April we commemorate the glorious day of April 12, 1961. It was the day when Yuri Gagarin, the first man of the new space era, was brought to near-earth orbit by the Vostok-1 spacecraft. The flight lasted just a little over an hour and a half, but it turned Gagarin into a figure that has been admired throughout the world ever since. The feat accomplished by Gagarin 60 years ago inspires us to recall the incredible connection of his story with Lolita Torres - a singer and one of the top actresses from Argentina's golden era of cinema.
