    First GAZ-A automobiles in the Karakum desert during the Gorky-Pamir-Moscow-Gorky rally.

    This year, Gorky Automobile Plant (GAZ) celebrates 85 years since the start of production in 1932.

    During its Soviet period, GAZ produced cars that became the classics of the automotive industry.

    Today, GAZ is the largest automobile manufacturer in Russia.

    From passenger cars to trucks and armored vehicles, see the golden oldies of the Soviet Union in Sputnik's photo gallery.

      Remembering Feb. 21, the Day When Maidan Supplanted the Ukrainian Constitution

      Instead of becoming the framework for a peaceful transition of power, the Agreement on settlement of political crisis in Ukraine ultimately untied the hands of the opposition and allowed them to capture government buildings without resistance, forcing the legitimate then-President Yanukovych out of country.
