I had a difficult time finding pictures of factories in Siberia, but here’s some sort of factory in Dolgoprudny, Russia. Air pollution is a serious issue in Russia and for it’s indigenous people. I also found this image on creative commons, permission to use this image was given to anyone who wanted to use it.

The last image here is of some Khanty children with their reindeer and sleigh near Lake Numto. Reindeer and Lake Numto are very important for the Khanty’s way of life and in danger because of constant stress on the environment from demands for oil and petroleum. This image was also found on creative commons.
