 These blue and white cans of condensed milk was the main dessert for each child in the Soviet Union during the winter. Condensed milk had indefinite life and there was plenty of it. It was also a common dessert for a soldiers.

The soldiers, who served in the army at the Chukchi Peninsula Region, did`t turned his back to the hungry animals and began to feed them every now and then.
