Question for fellow Russian


Recommended Posts

It just a simple curiosity that maybe some friend from Russia or whoever knows something about it can help to satisfy. 

I wonder if it is common to find abandoned wooden houses or villages in remote, wild and muddy parts of Russia as we see in ST

@oldman777, sorry for poking you. You are the only Russian I know lol

I will answer with pleasure.
I already wrote here that in the early 80s I worked for a construction company in Siberia, and I drove almost all the trucks from the game.

This place looked the same in those years and now. These are not abandoned houses; people continue to live there.

On Google maps you can see in the photos:

Thanks mate!

Now that you mentioned it I remembered you writing about you said. 

Well that village is definitely better than some very creepy villages in some ST maps with old wooden houses in the middle of a flooded mud mess 😁

What those people usually do for a living? Are they farmers? Loggers? Or are they just not so wealthy to afford living in the city? Or is it just a common country village?
