Thank you very much to everyone who has helped me on my article.
Thank you to Pasha, Julia, Ufa for their quote contributions:
, who recommended the book Yöburg, by Alexey Ivanov
for contributing this fascinating website about Russian Monocities.
To Egor for contributing this project created by a local school about their village: http://seloglazok.ru/
And to KM for his photographs & comments.
I will submit the article later today and hopefully they will choose to keep some, if not all of these recommendations. I will be working on it for the next few hours if anyone has some more ideas. It will be published in Russia Beyond, where I contribute regularly. If you have some ideas, you’d like to see me write about life in Russia/America, let me know in a DM.
