• Walk in Moscow in 1989
November 30, 1989 opened a shop of the French perfume company "Christian Dior".
1989, the final phase of the restructuring, the destabilization of the political situation in the country, full-blown crisis and the trade deficit. Perestroika euphoria gives way to frustration, uncertainty about the future and the massive anti-communist and anti-Soviet sentiments.
Let's start with a walk on Manezhnaya Square tradition. Then in 1989 there is still a car-free.
and 90-year area called area of "50 Years of October".
There, there is even a memorial stone stands.
Next to the Red Square are the Volga.

1989 - is, of course, turn. Now already is unusual to see such a long queue in the "Sojuzpechat", and in fact if not officially been private trade. A lot of time, judging by the pictures in the morning had to spend on daily newspapers, and vending machines in the underground newspapers were a rarity, then - lays in its "podlotnoe" time to work those extra 10-15 minutes.
The cost of a bottle of Pepsi-Cola, 45 cents, including 35 cents drink itself, and 10 kopecks. t. n. "Bail" for an empty bottle. Many about the possibility of returning empty bottles and receipt did not know back 10 cents, which allows workers to "earn" at this huge money in those days.
Those who stand in the back of the line, most likely, will not be enough bananas. Stand up for fifteen minutes, and then they were told that there was one box. Or have warned - the line does not hold. This was a common situation for those years.)
Eyewitnesses recall: "I stand in the queue, it is - for bananas ... and left a box of them. Mom gave me a quarter, in the absence of smaller money and went to the place ... with coupons for the whole family ... the seller to me - at all? - I - yeah! and almost bought a whole box of green, fragrant banana ... not one week they have ripened on the sideboard hitting the guests and neighbors

Let's return to the Kremlin, where we at Borovitskaya Square, Mercedes-Benz W123 T! Most cars in Moscow owned by the embassies and trade missions. Famous musician Yuri Antonov recalled that in order to buy a car "Volvo", he asked for permission to the Central Committee of Komsomol. A foreign cars bought and other famous people: Bovin, Vysotsky, Yulian Semyonov, etc. At the service entrance MKhAT... Gorky on Tverskoy Boulevard, almost every day you can see two identical Mercedes W114, one owned by Oleg Efremov, the second - Evgeni Evstigneev. According to his son Yevstigneyeva "... The highest achievement it was to buy a Mercedes Blue -. Color led him to a special delight, of course, to the parts." Mercedes "in the Soviet Union was not, so get out had to the circumstances I remember once he opened the hood. and proudly pointing to different parts, he told me that some of them are rearranged here out of the plane, and some -. of the truck ZIL remember his story about how he entered the blue "Mercedes" in his native Bitter - it was probably the happiest moment his life ..

"Melody" on Kalinin. Witnesses: "In 1968 - 1970 shop" Melody "introduced in practice following the sale of the system of" deficient "plates. They are sold not in the main room, and on the right (looking at the photo), the corner was an ordinary door and right there, in that door, and sold "deficit." the sale of the warning system was starin 'OBSDD "t. e." One woman said, another added "! The news of the sale reached the ears of whom it is necessary, and to 5 - 6 am at the cherished door a queue of music lovers. Somewhere at 8 am and began the sale of at least 15 - 20 minutes came to an end! Should immediately be noted that large-scale speculators to profit here was nothing, t. To. In one hand was issued only one plate of one artist. Here are sold, for example, the Polish "Cervone guitar" and "Red Black", then you can buy it was only one plate. There was no clear timetable, and therefore it is absolutely hopeless to try to catch any algorithm. All spontaneously and all by word of mouth! What kind of a luxury collection of the Polish stage I gathered here! But it had to come from Sviblova ... "
The day began selling album "Greenpeace" - breakthrough ", issued by the international environmental organization" Greenpeace "and Soviet recording company" Melody ". Witnesses: "It was the first attempt to draw the attention of our citizens to the environmental problems of environment. Start, as they say, himself. Remember, "The View" with Listyev and characteristic with an American accent, "Do not litter!" Now, it's there ... Album razosholsya quickly. "
And in the Khodynka field at this time the planes! Exhibition Aerotechnics-89. Dozens of planes and helicopters flew in August 1989 in the Ice Palace, we were told, to become the new exhibits Museum ... Then it was impossible to imagine that in 20 years there will be neither a museum nor the Central airfield.
