'What happens in Sibera stays in Siberia...unless it is covered by The Siberian Times'

So desperate to get to the sea, we made our own white beach in Siberia

Tomsk journalist created stunning tropical island image in -25C snow to cheer up locals during Covid-19 travel restrictions.

A cool picture of a giant palm tree and people lazing underneath it was drawn in the deep snow of a frozen pond.

The aim was to depict the ‘cherished dream’ of so many residents who are longing for warm sea, but cannot travel this year due to the coronavirus curbs. 

‘It started from our idea to create a giant number 2021, but then a half of the pond was left unused and we decided to create an island in the ocean’, said local journalist Yulia Korneva, from Tomsk-based TV-2 media company. 

Yulia and her friends then photoshopped out traces of their footprints to get a perfect result.

As an ardent ecologist, it pains me more than I can say, to learn about the vast pollution that has affected the waters near the Kamchatka, so severely. What is the situation like now? Has the marine life recovered somewhat?
