Ukhta was an oil capital of one of the Northern Russian regions. It’s a home to one time Russian most rich man Roman Abramovich who also earned his fortune selling oil assets. However besides oil it was a pretty traditional Russian place – kids were enjoying watching bears wrestle and more on those photos of Ukhta.
