An antenna built for interplanetary connection. The Soviet Union was planning to build bases on other planets, and prepared facilities for connection which were never used and now lie dormant.
Imposing hulks of metal and granite built under the Soviet Union appear otherwordly against blank snowscapes.
The relics are alien – more like something out of Star Wars, than modern-day Russia
