 Coal miners stand outside the Zapadnaya mine (Tula Region). Their mine will soon be closed because of the end of state subsidies. At the time of this photo, the miners had not been paid in over three months. They have stopped digging coal but have continued working without pay to close down the mine shafts. The older miners will soon retire (and hope to receive pensions) and the young ones will soon be unemployed.
