Antratsyt

Antratsyt is an average town of eastern Ukraine and is filled with coal mines water problems and Russian nostalgia. A majority of population lives at the edge of poverty, without any chance for better life. Average salary is 1000 hrivnas ( around 100 USD). Some people try to make more money holding several jobs at the same time. Some look for entertainment in the local DK (House of Culture) while the others try to escape into drugs and alcohol. A few rich people in the town are unable or do not care about resolving economical problems of local society. As a result of the dire situation the young generation dreams of leaving the town and going abroad.
