It was an ambitious project, the city for 40,000 people, where the blind would have their own recreational, educational and rehabilitation centers, is now just a few dozen houses and a factory with one fifth of its initial workforce. The collapse of the Soviet Empire was a death sentence to this town and many others like it, all over the former Soviet Union.
Like many towns in Russia it is slowly becoming a ghost town and one day will be totally empty…
Windows to Russia!
