    OMG Russians are so poor they cannot even afford heated luxury swimming pool we have here in the west. I hope they survive hypothermia :(

    Is this an artificial lake, like a dam or something? Why are there trees underwater?

    Perhaps there is little oxygen in the water so the trees under water are preserved.

    The lake has been flooded in the recent past. that is why there are trees underwater. Maybe a damn was built a few years ago.

    It is where they keep all of the potasium

    This lake appeared as a result of earthquake which caused landslide. Mountain River was blocked by rocks and mud. Then this lake was filled up in a woody valley.

    The trees are preserved because the lack of oxygen means they cant rot, this is how coal is formed.
