The middle of Russia, Tula region, near Konduki village. Among plains, cornfields and copses lays abandoned Ushakovsky coal cut. During the Soviet era there was mined lignite, but in the 90s mining was closed due to unprofitability. Now 50 meters high clay heaps are overgrown with birches and aspens, forming landscape very unusual for this region.
