This village was not on the maps of the Soviet Union, it was kept secret because of the military units located here. It is not on the map of Russia even now, not only because of the presence of the military, but because people have left this place a few years ago.

1. The village is situated on the banks of the Anadyr Bay of the Bering Sea in front of Anadyr and was founded in 1968. The population of the civil part of the village was engaged in mining of brown coal, and the military secures the eastern borders of the USSR.

2. After the collapse of the Soviet Union, the elimination of the nuclear weapons and reduce of the Army military part of the settlement was abandoned. House of officers, school, shopping center were closed.

3. Well, after the withdrawal of the military heating was also disabled. The town is dead!

4. In some civilian houses people lived until 2013, but the authorities in the region decided that it is easier to move everyone to the village. Pervomajskij than maintain the infrastructure of the 70% abandoned village. In the houses, abandoned in 2012 – 2013 years, there are still traces of human habitation, although almost all of valuable things are looted, wooden floors are removed for heating and construction of beams, windows are broken.

5. Let’s walk through the flats of the former tenants. There is nothing to comment, take a walk in peace.
