    A staff member pours a cup of at the Tajik tea house in Berlin April 25, 2012. This was one Soviet gift Berlin felt like hanging on to after the fall of the Wall - an intimate Tajik tea salon, complete with sandalwood columns, rugs, floor-cushions and samovars. First displayed at the Soviet Union pavilion at an exhibition in Leipzig in 1974, East Germany installed the tea salon in a Prussian palace on Berlin's grandest boulevard, housing the German-Soviet Friendship Society. The teahouse will close for restoration works at the end of the month. Picture taken April 25. TO GO WITH STORY GERMANY-BERLIN/TAJIK REUTERS/Thomas Peter (GERMANY - Tags: SOCIETY ENTERTAINMENT)

    Head of Tinkoff Credit Systems Oleg Tinkov attends the Russia Forum investment conference in Moscow in this January 31, 2008 file photo. Getting his first credit card in 1992, the year after the Soviet Union fell apart, dazzled Tinkov. The 44-year-old beer-to-frozen foods entrepreneur said it was his dream when he was a student to own one. His bank now supplies cards to nearly 2 million people in Russia, many in far-flung regions neglected by the big banks. Picture taken January 31, 2008.

    Dancers of the Georgian National Ballet "Sukhishvili" perform in Tbilisi, January 27, 2012. It has survived communist oppression, the Cold War, the break-up of the Soviet Union and counted Josef Stalin and Elvis Presley among its admirers, but at its heart the Georgian National Ballet has always been a bit of a family business. Founded nearly 70 years ago by the husband and wife team of Iliko Sukhishvili and Nino Ramishvili and initially named the Georgian State Dance Company, the troupe has travelled from the back offices of suspicious state and party officials in 1945 to some of the greatest stages in the world.
