    • It’s not a tree, it’s some kind of fence post or lamp post painted yellow. Typical example of a Soviet paint job, by the way – they love to paint everything over and over, without ever removing old paint. Everything in Russia used to be painted like this: buildings, fences, even buses and street cars. Even today they paint for example many bus shelters exactly this way.
