Content creator and pilot Vasylkevych created this stunning drone video of a now-abandoned military base in the Carpathian Mountains of southwestern Ukraine.  "Pamirs" served as an air-defense base for the Soviet Union, of which the Ukraine was part for most of the 20th century.  The base is located atop Hutyn Tomnatyk, a 2k meter (about 6.6k ft.) peak of the Chornohora region.  Upon the dissolution of the USSR in 1991, hundreds of military bases in the former Soviet Republics were similarly abandoned.
