The dying city of Donbass
• Dying city Donbass
Ukrain once famously handed out for free here abandoned apartment. After a major accident forming enterprise, the mine "Ukraine", was never able to fully recover. People went away, throwing a house. The rest live on a pension, and many of those who have not found work in the city, trying to park in Donetsk - 40 km to him on the bus.
What is interesting, there are visitors who have received free apartments, but they do not make the weather. Only part of the city is gasified and heated centrally, in the remaining apartments are coal stoves.
The fate of the Ukrainian share dozens of towns and hundreds of villages of Donbass.
