Russian photographer Alexander Belenkiy returned to the Sochi area just six months after the 2014 Winter Olympic Games and found it practically deserted. Belenkiy visited Rosa Khutor, a small town near Sochi that hosted the alpine skiiing games. The words Belenkiy used to describe Rosa Khutor were "ghost town," "huge wasteland" and "abandoned," as these pictures attest.
While this is a winter resort town that is less populated in the summer, it's still fairly obvious that a lot of the money put into expansion of the area for the Olympics is now going to waste, judging from the unused furniture and commodes and deserted buildings.
