In the 1970’s, The Lithuanian city of Visaginas was created to service a powerful Soviet nuclear power station, designed and shaped like the wings of a butterfly. It was intended to be a window of Soviet progress to the West. After USSR disintegration, EU membership meant Lithuania had to close the plant, the city’s main industry. 25,000 Russian-speaking townspeople were left with an uncertain future.
