Yes, it is and those pictures are taken in precisely in Vilnius, not in Russia.

I think it's in Sarajevo. They still need to remove the ugly satellite dishes, but I like what they did with the window frames. I would much rather they add frameless glass over the balconies if they can't just be removed altogether, so that no hideous white clunky frames are seen.

Very well done, in my opinion. This is how all commieblocks should be restored.

I have a question and I apologize in advance if it was answered earlier. In most cases of these remodels, do they update the interior living space as well as the outside facade?

This is how it should be done! It went from ugly plattenbau to almost Bauhaus!

"After" is just too stark and off-putting.
Sure, it looks cleaner, but it also looks antiseptic.
