This is a view of the ancient Russian village of Abog. Earlier it was a Russian fortress, it can be seen on the hill. The fortress died in 1581, fighting with the Tatars. Nearby is the river Krasnaya. It was named after those sales ... And there was a river red with blood. With its heroism the fortress saved many people from the invasion of the Tatars.
