Misha Friedman -- Ukraine, after the Soviet Union

"Coal miners drink moonshine after work in Enakievo, " Misha Friedman, All rights reserved

"Following the collapse of the Soviet Union, much of Eastern Ukraine ended up ruined – many mines and massive factories are lying abandoned, people are unemployed or earn just enough to survive – abandoned by the government - and nature is taking over in full force. For decades this land was a symbol of Soviet Rationalism and victory over Nature, but it did not take long for all of that to crumble, leaving behind ruined lives."
