Hooray! May is at hand! It’s time for Yakutian men to hunt for ducks… Rumours went out. Some say that duck hunt might be prohibited due to games migrated from radiated Fukushima, Japan. Some say it will be allowed, but strongly recommended not to eat ducks. In any case, hunters will go out into the wildness and shoot their gamebirds.

Pictures of Yakutsk taken in 1980. That’s how the Siberian city looked like in the Soviet time. See more old photographs. Photos were digged by the local website Joker on the Foto Soyuz website.
