Abandoned Russian Town that Stored Nuclear Weapons 200 Km from USA Coast in Winter

This town Gudym is just 200 km away from USA. Probably this is why it was used as a top secret warehouse for the nuclear weapons. The heart of the town is a huge concrete hole in the ground that used to store nuclear weapons. The surrounding houses were used for the families
working on this underground object. Now everything stays abandoned. Houses sometimes burn in fires, and underground maze is used by strangers. We had some photos from here before, but Sergei, Russian blogger, went there in winter and saw how it looks like:

2 Underwater Leaders. What Is Lenin, Stalin and Dzerzhinsky Doing at the Bottom of the Black Sea?

Underwater Leaders. What Is Lenin, Stalin and Dzerzhinsky Doing at the Bottom of the Black Sea?

At Cape Tarhankut in Crimea, a hundred meters from the shore, there is an unusual museum - an underwater analogue of Moscow "Muzeon". In 1992, a diver Vladimir Borumensky found at a depth of 12-15 meters the first sculptures of the Soviet leaders, that had already been dismantled in the Crimean cities and towns. Then busts of Lenin, Marx and Voroshilov settled here. Borumensky planed his venture in a big way and wanted to bring Mao, Mussolini, and Napoleon to the Soviet
pantheon. The Emperor has not appeared on the original Walk of Fame, but divers from all over Ukraine started to complement the collection of Soviet leaders. Today in the underwater Museum there are several dozens of exhibits, from Stalin and Dzerzhinsky to Gorky and Gagarin. There is a department of writers, there is Lenin leading the boy by the hand, and the other rare sculptures that do not fit in the traditional Soviet canon.
