Colorful Apartments of Ramenskoye, Or The Horror of Colors Unbound


Browsing the zhezhe this weekend, I came upon these photographs posted by Sturman - of an apartment block in Ramenskoye in Moscow Oblast. I couldn't resist posting them, I just wish I had more of the backstory regarding how they came to be painted so brightly. Rather like living in a lollipop, and is definitely a colorful solution to the typical drab Soviet era apartment buildings.

Of course, it is yet another example of the devilish VVP's plot for world domination through monopolization of the world's paint markets. MOooo Hahahaha!
