    A unique list of secret cities and buildings of the USSR was published by RT channel. A drone managed to film five of the most interesting constructions surviving on the territories of different countries from the Soviet era.

    The buildings suggest that even in the state of decline there was an immense contribution by the Soviet Union to the architectural world.
