Russian community “Toska” (Melancholy) at D3.ru collects sad images of Russia. As the description reads “Melancholy is a social phenomenon which is, in fact, physically tangible in nature. The look and feel of the surroundings gets into your soul…” Some of the images chosen by the D3 community perfectly fit into the mood of freezing cold and dark winter days.

Russian Internet users went even further and created news website Tlenta.ru dedicated to dispiriting news. The website even allows visitors to generate your own personal “depression card”.
