Golden Eagle of Tomorrow's Bliss is the legend of a bird-rocket. Made of money and carrying a charge of security, it is called upon to give Russia prosperity. We are what we believe.

During the Cold War, several missile systems were set up around Moscow. One of them was the Golden Ring of Air Defense, equipped with missiles of the S-25 Berkut type ("Berkut" means golden eagle in English), another one was located throughout the territory of the former RSFSR, including in such areas as Kostroma, Ivanovo, and Vladimir - the intercontinental ballistic missile-based missile system with rockets of the UR-100 type. Both of them were demobilised  in the 1980s and 1990s.

It`s said that after the collapse of the Soviet Union, tons of out-of-use Soviet money were dumped in empty rocket mines. Until now, with a certain periodicity in the media and among treasure hunters, there are reports of unexpected treasures hidden in forests.
