      Yeah, very clever people…But why can you see on some photos women working on building sites? What is clever on this, that women in russia are working on building site instead of men.

    Yes, that was kind of a Socialist idea: put everyone in identical looking boxes. True equality.

      The idea – to give people more or less adequate housing
      In the mid-1950s, most urban residents lived in terrible conditions of communal apartments (several families in one apartment with shared toilet and kitchen). Under Stalin, greatly increased the urban population. But almost no houses were built. + Country abolished the effects of war – has been destroyed many towns and villages. Millions of people were left homeless.
      Therefore, under Khrushchev, greatly reduced the cost of defense and began to mass housing.

      Homeless are never a problem for free-market fascists. They are simply invisible.

    That is a small balcony those people are on,but I am sure there is a double glass door because of the cold winter.
