It's really great thread.

What is interesting are different opinions of Russian contributors and others in that thread.

The Sovětské statní cirkus opět v Praze, and the map of the russian bear with Czechoslovakia in it's jaws.
How was that 50 year anniversary marked in Prague?
I'm sure there must be some monuments to remember the event.
I reemember one of the signs said, v tisíce letech to nezapomeneme.
Jsem zvědav, jak by to vypadalo, kdybych byl přivolávačem deště. Jak by to vypadalo, kdybych uměl přivolat déšt'?
Mám pocit ale, že se to bohužel nikdy nedozvím.

I found new quote: "Na západ jsme se vysrali a z východu nám přišlo h***o. Důkaz, že je Země kulatá" - perfect:-)

autocensorship? cool...

I meant 40th anniversary of the 68 invasion, not the 50th.

That's some quote Kibicz. :lol:

Well, monuments are something we have bad experience with, too :)

But they said in TV that there will be placed two tanks, modified in same way as tanks of invaders. First one will be in Prague and second one in Liberec.
And there will be exhibitions and public events on August 21.

Do the events in Gruzie right now remind anybody of the events in 68 in CR?
They too might one day have such monuments.

Interesting exhibition is in Manes exhibition hall. It's photo exhibition both from 1945, when Soviets came as liberators and 1968, when they came as invaders.
