    This statue is not just a portrait, but a symbol.It is a symbol of the Communist party leadership: wise, strong and inflexible.

Kirovsk Warnings and Dangers

  • Sidewalks and Roads

    Since the city sidewalks and roads leave much to be desired, it would be great to have a small torch when walking at night.

Even...
