This village is located right by the Sea of Okhotsk. Fishing and hunting have always been these people’s main source of income. Then the fish factory was purchased by a private individual and the number of people employed reduced greatly. Today there are about 1,700 people living in the village while some time ago it was only the fish factory that emplyed over 2,000. Welcome to Oktyabrsky.
On the way to Oktyabrsky village.
Huge territories have been abandoned here in Kamchatka Territory.
The village includes two parallel streets between the fish factory and a gas station.
There are mostly single-family homes in the village and a few five-storey apartment buildings.
On the face of it, the village is doing Ok…
But it’s windows that reveal the truth…
“We don’t want heritage like that”.
