9 Abandoned Chukotka

Abandoned Chukotka

Going to the edge of Russia, I imagined something of that kind. Life here is really difficult, and in Chukotka you start believing that the climate prevents from building roads and normal existence of the cities: no stone or wood, no main building materials. In the 1990s and 2000s, people began to leave
that small region, leaving behind abandoned towns and villages. I advise nature lovers to go to Chukotka, but I didn't really like it: the low hills with grass. Tundra is rather boring spectacle. From wild animals I have met only a family of three cranes have sat down to rest.

Kenozerye: Zehnovskaya flour mill

Zehnovo village is one of the most ancient settlements of kenozerskih and its history begins in the 16th century, when, according to one legend, the first inhabitant named Zeh settled here. Presumably, it was someone
from the first Christians arrived at Kenozero during the existence of the Kenoreckyi waterway that connected Lake Onega with river Onega using which Orthodox people from Novgorod came to these lands.

1 Abandoned tropospheric station under the Anadyr

Abandoned tropospheric station under the Anadyr

  Not far from the Anadyr city, about 10 km, at the top of the hill of St. Michael there is a nodal tropospheric station called "Yukon" (8/104 (21/103) M/u - 74239), which is a part of the "North" communication system and a local civil telecentre. As a mobile and satellite communications are developing, the need of having such
an expensive object has gone, and in 2003 the station was finally closed. Telecentre was luckier and stood in a good condition for ten years more. There is no former luxury, but the remnants are still there, far away, attracting both local people and tourists. We also could not resist and went there.

2 A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

A Tour to the Aeroclimatic Camera

Now I would like to write about one of the greatest facilities of the ZIL plant. It is an aeroclimatic camera.   An aeroclimatic complex is a unique facility that simulates various weather conditions for vehicle testing.
Environmental testing and research were conducted in a wide range of ambient temperatures from -60°C to +65°C with regulation of the object air-flow speed of 0:150% km/h, at a relative humidity of 0:100%.

2 Russia: Grass and Missiles

Russia: Grass and Missiles

We arrived at the village and then drove to the resort, to a small slate career. The nearest underground missile silo was in two hundred meters from that place. Once, the formidable intercontinental ballistic missile R-36M UTTKh lived in the underground missile silo, otherwise called Satan. But now there is no rocket inside it, there only a small house remained. Today my story will be about the
house and other underground constructions. We arrived. We left the car and walked down the thickets of wild pea and hemp fields. Not inclined to think that it is grown especially by locals - too big and chaotic plantations. But I was sure that in the autumn there would be enough harvest for all the surrounding villages. Some individual plants were higher than I.

This is the place of installation of one of the guns of a three-gun battery No. 714 of the Novorossiysk naval base of the Black Sea Fleet. Few people know about it, all paths to this place have overgrown with thorns. Unlike Zubkov battery, this battery is not so heroic. The
battery accepted its first fight on 23 August 1942. Captain Mikhail Petrovich Chelak was awarded the Order of the Red Banner for courage, 10 battery fighters received orders and medals for courage and bravery during the battles for Novorossiysk
