    If (for some reason) the video is inaccessible in your area, imagine a whole city looking like this image from the BBC:

    Can't help wondering whether the city will be re-built.

    Thankyou to the Russians for this footage.

    If I were not told I would think it was a set for some star-wars movie. Utterly dreadful.
