A huge photo report on a day's walk along the North of the Arctic Circle. Covered distance - about 10 km. Visited objects - several abandoned mines and villages...
Yuk, that’s my kinda place.
looks like world war III happend here
More abandoned Russia. Who would have guessed.
We can afford it : ). Only two country got black numbers, guess which?
Now, who won the cold war. HAhaha
Who won the Cold War? Everybody!
That is why Russia has one of the highest divorce rates in the world, a negative population sustainability number, and increasing infant mortality (according to the 2010 UN numbers)
You can thank that to capitalism that you instaled with Gorby.
How about blaiming a culture that downplays the importance of morals, values, and the family
Yeah, that little collapse you guys had was all part of the plan to win eh?
The Soviets developed this area, creating jobs and growing their economy. Had they kept spending money here and further east instead of pouring it into their military, propping up client states like Cuba, engaging in lost causes like Syria, Ethiopia, Angola and Afghanistan, and being intimidated by the imperialist U.S. there would still be a Soviet Union. Lesson (also and especially for the U.S. today): Industry and agriculture build; military and imperialism weaken.
No, because communism itself is a failure. It simply can not work for long.
The Soviets developed that area into an ecological disaster area – Norilsk has been called the most polluted city on Earth. Lesson: Communism is as bad for humanity as it is for the planet it lives on.
“Communism is as bad for humanity as it is for the planet it lives on”So communism is responsibl for 20 milion deahts in Africa every year,and for US being the twice bigger polluter than rest of the world.Your attempts to disclaim communism are less than pathetic.Brain washed western nazi troll.
You are so clueless. The entire philosophy of Marxism is predicated on belligerence and struggle. Or did you mis-read your Marx, marxistworker? The Soviet system, while not true Marxism, exemplifies this fact. The USSR was a belligerent and militaristic society, collapsing from within by inefficiency and corruption and from without by the successful economies and philosophies of the West. Without deceiving their people and other cultures around the world into fighting hopelessly against the Western democracies, the system would have collapsed long before it did.
Thank you for your input Glenn Beck.
I think Glenn Beck is a clown. I also think disgruntled pseudo-intellectuals that claim to be “Marxist” need to be corrected when they misrepresent history.
And here is a neonazi troll.Suport everything that him little anticommunist brain likes,but not what is the truth.
Dusche it up Komentator
“The USSR was a belligerent and militaristic society”And US is not?!”by the successful economies and philosophies of the West.”Crisis of 08′,bombing the Libya and Iraq for oil shows on what that “success” means on the West.”Without deceiving their people and other cultures around the world”.What abiut FOX news,created for the brainwashed zombies of the West.
Keep reading your pravda then. They are never political or slanted. The US would rather lead by culture (the greatest ever) or commerce. It just so happens we have the best military in the world. Also, we have used it to free countless millions of people.
Norilsk must be a tough place to live and work at, but there it is.
@ marxistworkers – what did you take? those areas was build by slave workers. Do You know how many died building those railroads?? Where did you come from? marxist timemashine?
Give us please a source how many people died?
one is too many
You are example how much pathological hypocrisy is in the thincings od the anticommnust.One too many if communism kills,but if anticommunism kills,than is one billion to little.You are a proofe that anticommunism is a ideology of sociopaths.
You mean pro-freedom? Yes the quest for freedom sometimes leads to deaths. 450,000 US deaths in WW2 for instance. Fighting for Freedom.
Somewhere between 100.000 and 200.000. http://www.washingtonpost.com/ac2/wp-dyn/A52797-2001Aug23?language=printer
And you believe everithing that neonazi propaganda says?Of course you do.
Still waiting for the proof from the independent sources,not Western neonazi propaganda smartass.
Lots of old buildings in ussr.
Almost certainly built and worked by slave labor from the Gulag. I’m disgusted and amused by those of you who idealize the Soviet era.
Slaves helped build the White House and slaves were owned by the Father of the Declaration. I’m disgusted and amused by those of you who idealize the Founding Fathers.
So we agree in denouncing slavery? My country did away with slavery 146 years ago. How about yours?
http://www.watchesn.comwatch I admit, I have not been on this website in a long time, however it was joy to find it again. It is such an important topic and ignored by so many, even professionals! I cheers for helping to make people more aware of these issues. Just great stuff as per usual!Enjoy the remaining portion of the year. Your conducting a fabulous job.
So where are the pic’s from the mines? Only a couple of entrances shown..
