Title: Izvestia Russian Newspaper Clipping, Yuri Gagarin, April 12 1961
Post by: burningsheep on 12/03/2017 06:40 PM
My girlfriend's friend's grandma lives in Ukraine and she gave him this Russian Izvestia newspaper page from April 12 1961. It's about Yuri Gagarin, but he can't read Russian very well, so we don't know what it says. It would be cool to get it translated at some point, if someone is interested I could ask for a higher quality scan as I took these quickly with my phone. There are also places that sell hi-res images for 20$ or so, from what I've seen. Anyhow, his plan is to frame it in the future.

Personally, I think the graphics are pretty cool!

Do you mind if we share these with some people? I'm in some various communist discussion groups on the internet and several of them would have an interest in this.
