    I assure you that Kurgan is in no way similar to London, UK.
    Заранее благодарю всех за исправление ошибок в моём русском.

    I think it must be a usual Siberian city: a historical center with monuments and, maybe, something of an ancient fort, some imperial stone buildings (like this), a church maybe, and beyond the center - many identical "khruschevkas" (this picture shows the principle).

    hey, only one building there is a "khruschevka" although you are probably right.

    Yes, to be exact, others (except the house in the center) are brezhnevkas
