I always find these kind of abandoned places.. so strange!

"Inhabitants evacuated in some days when city “have defrozen”. Since then and costs… Remains only two basic inhabitants. "

I don't quite understand.. "have defrozen" .. did everyone leave at one time for some reason?

Great photos !

The temperature of air in the winter in this city fell below -40 degrees. All houses were heated by a city boiler-house. On it there was a failure.
Pipes on which hot water in houses there and then acted have frozen and have bursted. Inhabitants have started to freeze and them urgently evacuated.

worse, the pipes bursting probably led to massive flooding with cold water once things warmed up a little. quite a shame really!

It looks like most of the windows are gone so most of those buildings are probably uninhabitable now I figure...

Flooding is excluded, pipes bursted for the reason that in them almost water at once froze and the ice was formed. It also was the reason of damage of pipes.
