Shkota: Far Eastern Island Left By People

Posted on January 23, 2013 by team

On the south of Russkiy island of the Russian Far East there is an island called Shkota. It used to be populated by militarymen but today it’s fully abandoned. Only ruins of military barracks and a coastal battery remind of people who used to live here.

Here are remains of concrete vats for salting fish.

    15 billions spent on bridge to Russkiy and people must walk on the ice to Shkota? Shameful.

    China could have built the bridge for half in half the amount of time.
