Brezhnev as he was in real life: women, drinking, the car heloved, hunting stories and some others are here, about the man who was a President (or Secretary General) of the USSR for almost twenty years, and his epoch was called “Brezhnev’s stagnation” (or may be stability?) for the country.

And yes, that’s him in the first photo serving drinks to ladies on a yacht in 1973. See more photos.

In Kazakhstan during the skating show.


3.jpg

Drinks again. On the boat with the Cuban Castro brothers.

4.jpg

In a Russian children summer camp. Nice shot.

5.jpg

Driving with… Richard Nixon in an Oldsmobile. 1973.


6.jpg

Brezhnev and Fidel Castro.


7.jpg

While hunting. It looks like he is holding some game in his hand. 1972.


8.jpg

Reading the “PRAVDA” newspaper.


9.jpg

Together with Luis Corvalan, the Chilean communist leader.


10.jpg

This is him in the factory producing… PEPSI cola. Yes, Pepsi was lucky enough to sneak in to Soviet markets during the Brezhnev era. It was a pretty difficult thing to buy, though. The year is 1976.

11.jpg

During a hunt again.


12.jpg

“Hunting stories”. This is what the author called this photo. Look at the big gun on Brezhnev’s belt.


13.jpg

In the summer residence of an American president. 1973. Wasit Nixon at that time?


14.jpg

“Walk on the Potomac river”. 1973 as well.

“At the camp fire”. 1976.

Brezhnev, the last great Russian leader.
Too bad an incompetent fool like Gorbachev turned out to be a traitor to Russia.
The world has been suffering from this folly ever since.
If capitalism promotes innovation and creativity then why aren't scientists and artists the richest people in a capitalist nation?

And you of all fake commies don't see the contradictions between Mr Brezhnyevs's lavish lifestyle  ...

The Soviets had national health care while the US still doesn't.
I guess you think iPhones and soda pop are more important though.

Did you get cured of your alcoholism in the Soviet Union? Why couldn't they heal Boris Yeltsin's ...

"Alcohol is necessary for a man so that he can have a good opinion of himself, undisturbed by the facts."
