I live in Ukriane. It’s an agreecultural country wiht the richest soils in the world. But, I have some heart breaking photos to share. I live in a town, some 25 miles from Kiev (the capital). But, if you move up to 40 miles away from Kiev, you start meeting desolation in villages:
The farms start falling apart. You can these almost in all near by villages:
If I had enough money to start a small farm, I would have gladly moved away there.
There is one good news about the place. The nature is reviving. I have seen an amazing thing. I was not able to take a good of it, though. On a green field I saw 14 storks! I have never seen so many of them in one place. A while ago seeing a stork was a rare luck in Ukraine. But now they have come back and multiplied. And the air there was amazingly fresh, too.
