Rust is everywhere in Soviet Russia.
Why, Communism itself is a rusty machine.
Rust covers the pistons, pipes, and tanks at the oil refinery.
Rust covers the shipping containers and oil drums at the seaport nearby.
Rust even covers the nuclear reactors near the highway. That same type of reactor melted down in Pripyat.
Why, rust even covers the surfaces of the concrete tenements that line the dirty streets in town. The people are tired of rust. They want to live in a world without it.
Mother Russia herself is rusted. Maybe that could be viewed as symbolic, who knows.
There isn't as much rust covering the Soviet Department of Energy headquarters. It occupies the top floors of the building. How ironic, as most of the plants it manages are covered in it.
Rust covers the bars on the windows on these concrete monuments to Communism. The people inside are trapped.
Trapped by rust.
Trapped by a rusty machine.
