For this purposes to satisfy large Russian cities with bread and circuses these structures are being built, out of rough gray concrete.

They are really huge in size and some of them staying abandoned already from Soviet times. And here is a collection of some of those across Russian cities.

    Same thing here in America. Many grain elevators are falling down or being torn down. Not so much of a need for them – anymore. Kinda sad. They were very important not to long ago. The US and Russia are really not that different. We both have our ups and downs.
