At the time of cold war an immense amount of military equipment was created in the USSR. We were lucky not to have a global war but military equipment retained. Every year the numerous machines and equipment became older and older and were either dismantled or abandoned.

  1. WOW! A lot of this stuff would sell pretty well on ebay. I’d love to have such a board, as a collectors item.

    Also, there’s the whole electronics recycling into gold industry.

  2. It is a damn shame you russians let this stuff to rot. There must be equipment worth of millions of euros in there! Fix them or sell them as they are to militaria collectors, film makers and travel companies! Don’t let them rust away!

    • They are there for the taking. If those “military collectors, film makers and travel companies” want these legacy equipment, then just go and drive off with them. No one’s gonna stop you.

  3. Damn I would love to get a hold of one of those telescopic poles on the back of those radio trucks I could put them to good use !!
    Love EnglishRussia website too

  4. What a sad waste,most of those trucks/vans could have been easily de-militarized and auctioned off to local businesses/traders etc.. even a few roubles would be better for rverybody than leaving them to waste in the countryside.so sad.

    • What local businesses/traders? The same economic crisis that led to the demise of the old Soviet military also affected those “local businesses/traders”. They simply couldn’t afford to invest in anything, and even if they could, I doubt that they would choose military-grade vehicles over commercial versions.

  5. Do not shed a single tear over this rusting junk. The cost of abandoning it to the elements is nothing compared to the cost in human lives and material if it had ever been used in war.

    • In what way is military spending related to communism or fascism or any other ideology? The US spends over half a trillion dollars on it’s military, yet none considers the US to be communist or fascist.

  6. that’s one of the darksides of russia. not because this material is abandon and such. it’s kind of cool and I love to see it.
    but because they don’t recycle. it’s just waste, trash etc. very bad for the environment… reminds me usa.

  7. Good luck getting one, they’re all near Cherynobl, the trucks is loaded with radiation. The country has strict laws against radiation items getting out of the zone. Long exposure to radiation, no matter how low can kill anyone with cancer and other nasties over a period of time.
