Year 1985 was an important year. That year Soviet Communist party and Gorbachev started declaring their “new course”. People were not afraid, they got used that top official words mean little for their everyday lives. But not at this time. Who could just imagine that because of this worlds their life would change drastically, the things they got used would disappear and the Soviet State itself would cease to exist just in a few years? And this is how the life looked just on the verge of all this:
Regular Soviet city.
Tram in Irkutsk.
The all mighty KGB headquarters in Moscow with Dzerzhinsky monument which was demolished later (and in 2016 the case opened to “investigate the destruction of Dzerzhinsky monument”). Weird.
“Party means immortality of our deeds”
No traffic at all.
Beach in Novgorod.
Tbilisi. Would become a separate state’s capital.
Gas station in Leningrad, which would became St. Petersburg
