Here is the Google translation of siberia22's opening description posted on 09/18/10:
North Village - Located in the Ust-Yanskiy Ulus, on the banks of one of the most beautiful rivers in Yakutia - Yana was once a river port. In the north is the base of the parent plant "Kularzoloto", and lived mainly energy and miners. Once upon a settlement would make the administrative center of Ust-Yana ulus, but, on reflection, have come to the conclusion that it is better to put the administration in the deputy, 150 km from the river, the only transportation artery of the region.
Changes for the worse began in 1994 after the dissolution of "Kularzoloto." From large enterprises remained mobile power station "Kular" and housing and communal enterprise "Northern". Since October 1995, the delay in payments salary. It is a functioning village was quickly plundered.
In 1996, 46 employees of the township LCP went on hunger strike in the workplace, as a result of which the majority was in their hospital beds. But to change the situation they could not - wage arrears continued to grow. Because of poor preparation for the winter season in April 1999, an accident occurred in the water supply system. As a result, most of the pipelines were frozen solid: without sewerage, heat and water, the inhabitants of the village were on the verge of death. In November of Power 7 and 3 women kommunalschitsy hunger strike. Telegrams "SOS" were flying in all instances, up to Vladimir Putin and the Commissioner for Human Rights in the Russian Federation.
In February 2000, was published the decree of the Government of the Republic of the village close to the North on September 1, but provide apartments on the mainland is not planned all 780 remaining residents, but only those who lived in the far north for more than 15 years. Now the village was the only multi-storey building, town, rumored to different lumpen element. Everything else, like the upper villages, is the scenery for the film "Stalker".
Fantastic photos - fantastic place. I would not want to live there - but I'd like to visit.
