Last year, I traveled to Russia on an exchange and worked in the offices of the TassPhoto agency in Moscow. During the trip, I went to Bashkortostan for a 3-day reporting trip that was mostly an official tour of the capital city Ufa and some of its recent economic developments: a new stadium, it’s state-run broadcasting system, a Bashneft oil refinery, and a very strange hospital. We also had a short interview with the president of the republic, the last president of Bashkortostan, Rustem Zakievich Khamitov. You can see more images at my photoshelter archive.
