After these photos of coal miners getting back from their job were posted, a discussion sprung up in the comments about how much tougher working in a coal mine rather than in an office might be. Some say that the conditions in some coal mines have not changed much since hundred years ago. It is that rough that people have to kneel throughout their entire working day and use the
sledgehammers and jackhammers to actually mine the coal. Their whole body gets covered in coal dust. More photos are inside: It's not clear if those photos are from Russia or Ukraine, because Ukraine has been cited as the number two coal producer in Europe with more than 145 coal mines across the country - mostly in the Eastern part.
