There is a big ice within us. We humans are separated by this ice. Our distance is too large, we don't even communicate anymore and we're getting farther and farther away. The path of peace that I'm getting ahead is not just a poster. But wherever I sit, I try to break these ice. I hear the story of others, also I share my own story, we can easily make friends like that

Fly to Ukraine, Kiev. All people grew up with films, with TV shows, with singers. All of us left the characters and stories we were interested in just to imitate those movies and characters. But we are just doing daydreaming. Like a girl walking in the street, and in her mind she thinks she's that beautiful actress in her favorite movie. Like a boy who smokes, and imagines himself as Marlon Brando. And I'm the same, I like to be like Oskar Schindler in Schindler's List. And, one day, I decided why I'm not in a movie that's about myself? A complete new movie about my life, why not write myself a screenplay? And the seconds in this movie go ahead every day, my movie is very long and tragic. How is yours? Photo: I love clouds, airplane, sky and sun. This is a lovely combination in my photography. It was taken on 10th July

When I look back on my life, I see that repeating things will not be that sweet as it was. Everything should be experienced once, goodness and mistakes. I'm a nihilism person, but this does not mean depression. This is just the name of the window to the truth. I'm always optimistic and think of the paths, experiences and the next person. This is the best way to live this life, But I always think of my name after death, we must be influential on something in this world. I believe so

One day someone asked me, would you like to have a child? Although that was a difficult question, but I answered "yes, but I don't think I'll have the courage to have a child, Because it's something like selfishness." Something in this world is killing me, sometimes I wish I've never been born at all, and I don't like if he/she will feel the same way. And she asked me, if you had a child, what do you want to tell to him? I could tell him how beautiful the world is, There are things that are worth living, but there are nothing that are worth to be born

Sevastopol is one of the classic sieges of all time. The city of Sevastopol was the home of the Tsar's Black Sea Fleet, which threatened the Mediterranean. The Russian field army withdrew before the allies could encircle it. The siege was the culminating struggle for the strategic Russian port in 1854–1855 and was the final episode in the Crimean War.

After visiting the magnificent Vorontsov Palace, on the way back to Yalta, This beautiful church was visible on the mountains. Orthodox Church Of St. Michael The Archangel In Oreanda: At the foot of the St. Nicolas Mountain on the road from Yalta was built this church in 2006. The church was erected over the place on which the Christian monastery of St. Theodor was founded in medieval times. The location of the church makes an unusual sound, repeatedly bouncing off the rocks, singing the chorus takes on a monumental sound. The church has 5 domes, it was decorated by the best Ukrainian painters. Located on the rock over the hills and saeaside, it looks very organic and romantic. This place has very unique natural sound effects, that`s why very often the choir use it, and every day you can hear a record of mans choir voice. This place is not far from the Swallow's Nest and Livadia.

Here apart from being a beautiful and historical palace, when I was there, perhaps about 1 or 2 hours, I saw about 10 weddings. At first I thought that maybe it's only because of its beauty that beautiful couples are coming here to take some wedding photos. But after reading the history and some books, I realized no no no, there is a history behind the curtain. Vorontsov family was one of the richest in the Tsar times. They built many of the most beautiful palaces in Crimea. This palace was built for the short stays on the way to the Crimean Riviera.

The Vorontsov Palace or the Alupka Palace is an historic palace situated at the foot of the Crimean Mountains near the town of Alupka in Crimea. The Vorontsov Palace is one of the oldest and largest palaces in Crimea, and is one of the most popular tourist attractions on Crimea's southern coast. From 11 to 14 February 1945, the Yalta Conference took place in the neighbouring, former imperial Livadia Palace; this was between representatives from the United States, the United Kingdom, and the Soviet Union. Winston Churchill and his British delegation were given temporary residence within the Vorontsov Palace. Within two weeks, construction workers had restored 22 rooms in the main palace, 23 rooms in the Shuvalov wing, and even replanted the palace gardens. The palace's English-inspired architectural style gained praise from Churchill himself: Churchill was so taken by the garden's Medici lions that he later asked Stalin if he could take them home; Stalin declined the request. The setting of our abode was impressive ... Behind the villa, half Gothic and half Moorish in style, rose the mountains, covered in snow, culminating in the highest peak in the Crimea. Before us lay the dark expanse of the Black Sea, severe, but still agreeable and warm even at this time of the year. Carved white lions guarded the entrance to the house, and beyond the courtyard lay a fine park with sub-tropical plants and cypresses. — Winston Churchill, Triumph and Tragedy: The Second World War, Vol 6, 1953
