The collapse of the sports arena in St. Petersburg, Russia
In St. Petersburg, during the dismantling of the Petersburg Sports and Concert Complex on Yuri Gagarin Avenue, the roof collapsed. This was reported by Fontanka, which broadcasts the demolition of the building.
The frames show that the destruction of the complex began after one of the workers cut off part of the metal frame with a gas tool. When the roof began to fall into sections and fall down, the worker ran towards the cradle in which his partner was waiting. It is impossible to confirm if he managed to reach out to his partner, due the low quality of the video. At the time of work, at least two cradles were lowered from the cranes to the roof of the sports complex.
According to the publication 78.ru, the roof collapsed after removing 10 stretch marks. Ambulances and firefighters were sent to the sports complex. A search and rescue service also arrived.
Sports and Concert Complex "Petersburg" was opened in May 1980. In 2017, it became known that the World Hockey Championship in 2023 could be held in St. Petersburg. This required the modernization of the complex to modern sports standards. It is assumed that after the changes it will be the largest hockey arena in the world, its capacity will be 21.5 thousand people during hockey matches, 23 thousand during concerts.
Meme therapy: Russia and the first coronavirus vaccine - top 30 funny pictures
Russia is the first country in the world to register a Covid-19 vaccine, President Vladimir Putin announced on Tuesday, although the vaccine has not been mass-tested on humans and there is little public information about its effectiveness.
On Tuesday's government meeting, however, Putin said the vaccine had been shown to be effective in initial tests and provided long-term immunity.
International and Russian experts reacted with skepticism to the decision of the Moscow authorities to approve the use of a vaccine without it having passed the so-called third phase of testing, consisting of tests on thousands of people. Moreover, the fact that the vaccine was registered in Russia does not mean that it is internationally approved.

20 photos of Soviet Union sweets that children used to love
Modern children are not familiar with many delicacies of the Soviet era, but their parents and representatives of older generations often recall with nostalgia their favorite delicacies from their childhood and youth. Let's remember the elements of the tasty and sweet life of Soviet children:
1. Bread crust
Many children ran to the bakery for fresh flavored bread. Before buying, they were sure to check its freshness using a huge fork with two prongs, and on the way home they nibbled on a crust, it seemed that there was nothing in the world tastier than this fragrant bread crust.
It was they who replaced the chupa-chups for Soviet children. Such delicacies could be prepared at home or bought in the city. The cockerels were very popular, all children liked the taste of burnt sugar in such a candy, moreover, through them one could look at the sun and see the world in a different color.
3. Natural chewing gum
This delicacy was not sold in the store, the role of gum was played by the resin of fruit trees, which the children mined on their own. The most delicious were cherry and apricot resin.
4. The most delicious dessert
Who among Soviet children did not go out into the street with a huge piece of bread dipped in water and sprinkled with sugar? Elementary and not very attractive, but divinely delicious.
5. Live drink
And you saw a jar with strange contents that looked like a jellyfish. Adults said that a tasty and healthy drink was formed there, but it was far from everyone's taste.
6. Delicious medicines
Delicious sweet and sour balls, which were very useful, were liked by absolutely all children.
7. Sea pebbles
The multi-colored sweets with raisins or nuts were really very similar to sea pebbles, but it was impossible to tear yourself away from them, so they were picked up with whole handfuls and snapped like seeds.
8. DIY cakes
Young chefs loved to cook an original cake, which consisted of two cookies, oiled and combined into one confection.
9. Delicious dry water
The forbidden fruit is always, if not sweet, then necessarily delicious. This applies to dry briquettes, which the children chewed directly in dry form.
10. Ice cream
A favorite delicacy of all children is a delicious ice cream in a crispy waffle cup, which, when melted, left white marks around the mouth.
11. Homemade toffee
A real delicacy is boiled condensed milk, although this delicacy was also very tasty in its raw form.
12. Delicious cheese "Friendship"
Thanks to its taste, Soviet processed cheese became the basis for many salads; it was used for sandwiches and ate just like that.
13. Ascorbic acid
Tasty and healthy ascorbic acid could be bought at a store or in a pharmacy. Sweet tablets tasted more like candy, so all the children liked it so much.
The candy that broke the fillings and glued the teeth together, but was loved by absolutely everyone.
15. Potatoes on the fire
The very first grilled dish of the Soviet people was baked potatoes over the fire, which was not only delicious to eat, but also very interesting to cook. Potatoes were turned over on the coals with a wooden stick, and then the charred skins were removed from the scalding hot potatoes and ate with pleasure.
16. Sweet potatoes
In those days, a simple cake that could be made right at home was called sweet potato. A simple recipe consisted of crushed biscuits mixed with cocoa and butter to form balls that looked like small potatoes.
Chocolates were a real luxury, but halva was quite affordable, it was sold both by weight and packaged in cans.
18. Draft juices
Apple, grape, birch and tomato juices could be bought at the Soki-Vody store. These drinks were very popular, and there was always a queue at the juice stalls.
19. Milk from the bag
Not so much the milk itself as the triangular bag in which it was sold, especially attracted the boys. This bag made an excellent firecracker, which not only made a loud sound, but could also splatter everything around.
20. Delicacy from seeds
Kozinaki was another test of dental strength. They were made from seeds and caramel to form small tiles.
21. Sweet Nuts
Such a delicacy could be prepared in a special pan that allowed baking halves of nuts. They were filled with condensed milk and the two parts were combined into a whole nut.
22. Tasty and economical
A slice of black bread, sprinkled with sunflower oil and slightly salted with dill and green onions, could pass for an exquisite sandwich.
23. Drinks from the vending machine
Plain water for a penny, and sweet water with syrup - for only 3 kopecks was available to absolutely everyone. It was especially interesting to wash the glass right in the machine when a real fountain was forming. And even though some of the sweets of the Soviet era now seem to us not very appetizing, not a single generation of people recalls these sweets with nostalgia.
