The Soviet Union collapsed a long time ago and the promise to build the infrastructure to deliver electricity to every house has been broken in the former Soviet Republic of Belarus. In Belarus, there are still villages where people live without electricity. The government has promised to deliver basic needs in the past, but the citizens are not very hopeful under the current presidential regime. Galina Ripinskaya still uses lamps and irons that date back to 80 years ago. She also uses the local pond as her refrigerator. She puts the products in the basket and lowers it into the water. The top is covered in grass. Her meat can be stored for 3-4 days and sausage for one. The water is always cold in Belarus. The family has asked for help from the President of Belarus, but recently they replied that rural electricity is not planned at this time. Ripinskaya Galina lives proudly and contently but would someday like to watch this documentary about her on the internet at her house on a computer.
