Donetsk in 1984

Probably most of us here have heard about the city of Donetsk – a place in Ukraine that has been all over the news lately and probably suffered the most from what’s happening there. And to see what it was like before, it would probably be interesting to compare it to the photos of the city from thirty years ago – the year 1984, when American photographer Will Blizzard visited the city. Now there are some photos left for us to see the city on the verge of the collapse of the USSR. Enjoy.

  1. I compare these pictures to the USA of 1984 and it’s like looking at two different worlds entirely, one shabby, one dynamic.
