Here is a little photo-session of an abandoned city. When the Soviet Union collapsed, government didn’t have much funds to support some small cities around strategically import objects. People of these cities were left all by themselves. Nobody could support them because any communication with this places terminated after the army decided that they now don’t have money to support those objects.
People had to leave their places and move. Some were lucky to find their place under a sun of the Army of new Russian Federation, some less fortunate had to leave such places without any hope to find a new home, just because the shops stopped working, water stopped coming out of the facet and nobody cared about them any more.
It has been said that even president Putin was thinking to retire from KGB in 1990 and go to work as a taxi driver. Many people are now probably express great sorrow that he changed his mind at that time.
Ok, so here are the photos:
Just imagine how magnificient those buildings were before abandoned.
There were wide streets,
some buildings had pillars styled by the top Soviet architects.
Areas and yards around houses are now covered with grass wich found its way through an asfalt and concrete.
You can clearly see the grass here almost destroyed the paved roads during the last 20 years.
