Bystry (Russian: Бы́стрый, lit. quick) is an urban locality (a work settlement) in Chaunsky District of Chukotka Autonomous Okrug, Russia, located northwest of Komsomolsky. The settlement was abandoned as a result of the extraction of gold no longer being economically viable[5] and as of 2008 is in the process of being officially liquidated.[6]

History[edit]

The mines were declared unprofitable and that there was no possibility of developing any other form of economy in 1999 and the settlement was closed along with a number of others in Chukotka.[3] The Russian government guaranteed funds to transport non-working pensioners and the unemployed in liquidated settlements including Bystry from Chukotka to other parts of Russia.[3] The Ministry of railways was obliged to lease containers for the transportation of the migrants' goods to the Chukotkan administration and ensure that they were delivered to the various settlements.[3]
