Russian blogger Sergey has visited this town called “Karl Libnecht” in Kursk region of Russia – the place where one of the most intense tank battles of World War 2 took place and brought the story from there. Here what he says:
“Before this was a happy place. People were working, on weekends people were taking a rest and walking around, children were smiling. Now on the streets of Karl Libnecht you’ll rarely see good smile. Before there were two giant factories here – the machine building plant and sugar factory. Those were economic giants of federal level. But now this is how the machine building factory looks like (above on the photo)”. Let’s read on!
The text on the brick reads: “Ahead to the victory of communism!”.
“Over 2,000 people were working here. In 1990s it faced hard times. Now only broken glass windows and empty walls is what is left from the plant”, says Sergey.
They say that in 2011 a new investor appeared, but looks he hasn’t started anything yet.
‘Plants were working, people were living their life and thought it would continue at no end. But then the end happened”, says the blogger.
Then this is the sugar plant:
“I never saw such a huge sugar plant before!”, says Sergey.
The parts of the plant being demolished.
And those are residential areas around.
“Like after the war!”, says Sergey.
