titleMoscow stormline
locationMoscow, Russia
infoSky split open: Moscow hit by the downpour of the century. The fierce storm was hit the city by heavy torrential rains and hail. Residents were awed by apocalyptically overcast skies just before the storm. The great poet Alexander Pushkin once said, back in 1825 in his poem "Зимний вечер (Winter Evening)":
"Blizzard fades the heavens blurry,
Whirling winds enrage the skies
Like a beast, it howls in fury
Like a weeping child, it cries"

son_of_the_sun Hello, everyone! Thank you for your support. On behalf of Russian banner section, and as the one, who proposed this banner, I want to apologize for the misunderstanding and shed some light on the situation. Thing is, that at every stage of choosing and proposing this banner, we had no clue about its origin. We did the google-image search (this is how we find the author of this photo) and didn't find similarities. Moreover, the author provided no information about his work. So I genuinely considered his photo as an original image. Anyway, I hope you have had the feeling of the fierce storm that was hit the city and you've had the pleasure of reading Pushkin's quatrain. Cheers!  +16
