A Russian soldier pauses in the fighting and chaos of the First Chechen War to play an abandoned piano that was left in a forest. Somewhere near Grozny, Chechnya, circa 1994. The most likely reason this piano was in the middle of the forest in the first place is actually pretty simple: they're very, very heavy. Sometimes they're far too heavy for people willing to move it. An average piano weighs about 500 pounds mostly due to the cast iron harp inside that holds the strings, but some have heavier ones that can cause a piano to weigh upwards of 900 pounds, so it's understandable to simply leave one if there's a warzone nearby, such as there in Grozny, which soon was turned into ruins during the fighting. The First Chechen War ended with a Chechen victory against the Russian government, despite Russia's overwhelming superiority in numbers, weaponry and air support. They simply became far too demoralized in the face of multiple sieges and guerilla attacks, and the Russian public was growing more and more against the war. Russian President Boris Yeltsin and his government finally declared a ceasefire in 1996 and signed a peace treaty one year later. Russian military deaths were officially 5,732, but some estimates claim the number was over 14,000. The Chechens, however, had between 3,000 and 17,000 killed according to estimates, and as many as 100,000 Chechen civilians were killed. The Second Chechen War, in contrast, ended with a major Russian victory, and a pro-Russian government was installed in the area. However there is a low-level insurgency that is ongoing, and terror attacks by Jihadists flare up from time to time. Groups like ISIL are also slowly starting to gain footholds in the troubled region.

1955 год. Борис Ельцин на военных сборах. Второй слева. Фото из семейного архива.

К 23 февраля подобрали в Архиве Президентского центра первого президента России фотографии, на которых Борис Николаевич Ельцин в форме.

В 1978 году Б.Н. Ельцину было присвоено звание полковника танковый войск СССР (в том же году он впервые был избран в Верховный Совет СССР)

Наконец-то добрались до этого популярного места и нисколько не пожалели😱🤗😍🚎 побольше бы таких музеев🤔🙌🏻 #yeltsin

Продолжаем отпуск #наурале посещением Yeltsin Centre - очень много нового узнали о жизни первого президента РФ. Крутая атмосфера, передающая событии тех лет: от переворота в 1991 до снятия полномочий в 1999. Ностальгическое чувство увидеть квартиру и предметы быта 90-ых 🇷🇺 #history #russia #yeltsin #ekb

Today, 1991: A coup attempt briefly detains Soviet President Gorbachev, presaging the end of the Soviet Union.

Dear ladies, is it Friday already? Keep calm and party like a legend. #yeltsin #vodka #party #friday #pumpedupkicks #legend

Supporters of Boris Yeltsin (pictured) in Aug 1991, when the Russian leader defied a coup attempt by a group intent on reversing Soviet leader Mikhail Gorbachev's liberalization of the USSR. Hundreds of thousands of people turned out to oppose the coup. These guys are wondering now whether the coupsters ended up winning, given what's happened to liberalization and democracy in Russia since then.
