    Exactly 200 years back, on 7 September (on August, 26), 1812 on the field near-by the village of Borodino, held a the bloodiest one-day battle took place in history, between French and Russian armies.
    A quantity of troops and artillery was approximately identical. By the end of day Frenches succeeded to capture the left flank of Russians, but after dark, they had to retreat.
    This enabled the French and Russian regard the victory his. In fact, there was a battle draw. She costed to two parties 85000 killed and wounded.
    An Napoleon remembered later: "From all my battles, most terrible that I gave under Moscow. The French showed themselves worthy in it to win, and Russian - called invincible"
