This are photos by Alexandre Korolkov from Russian village “Ustje”. This village is remarkable. It is located on the far north of Russia, it’s much closer to American Alaska than to any major Russian cities. Temperatures there don’t get higher than 30-40 Fahrenheit even in the summer! Four hundred years ago a
group of Russian people flew far away to North in order to avoid death from the Tsar Ivan. They settled there and those people on the photos – direct descendants. They lived 400 years among Russian Eskimos people but didn’t assimilate and saved their traditions and Russian language.
