Russian northern city

21 One Northern City

One Northern City

In Russia there are plenty of small cities built deep far North near some kind of natural resource excavations. We had those diamond mines - it could be called the king of such settlements because we all know how much diamonds cost. But there are different other towns based around things like oil, gas, coal and some rare metals mining facilities which give jobs to majority of population. This one is located almost at Pacific coast of Russia (yes Russia has Pacific coast too!) and was founded around enormous layers of coal back many years ago in Soviet times. Later it was
sustained by the mining, then after Soviet Union collapse the coal mining still was active so the town survived all that times. The majority of currently living there people moved there from European parts of Russia but there are still natives living around, eating raw meats and having deer skin covered huts in which they live even at most freezing times of the year. People joke that when civilization would fall all those modern houses and facilities would crumble to dust but the natives would not notice all this modern stuff gone.

Ukrainian cars

29 Left to Rust

Left to Rust

When the car becomes out of use to its owner, or when it gets to tired and refuses to keep further service it's a normal thing to leave it rusting under open skies in post Soviet countries. Officials don't fine people for that and don't tow cars away, so
many small streets or public yards have one or two of those that would not move by themselves away again. Some of them even get painted by locals to a color of a curb or of a nearby wall. Those ones stay on streets of Ukraine.
