Anne Harrington: The ISTC was headquartered in the Institute of Pulse Techniques, which developed the... the equipment that... recorded data from their nuclear tests, basically. And it was a quite large building, and it had a cafeteria. When we first started working there, we had maybe four offices set aside for us, and we would eat in the cafeteria along with everyone else. And as part of the cafeteria there was a small store, where there would be sausage and cheese and kefir and, you know, the sour drink, kind of yogurt drink that they have, and other things... vegetables that they could buy, and that all came from a Ministry of Atomic Energy farm that... whose purpose it was to provide produce at reduced cost to the people who worked in Minatom Institutes. And one day we went to lunch and it wasn't there anymore. And everybody was grumbling in the cafeteria about how horrible it was that, you know, things had gotten so bad that they had now lost this perk. And that... you know, along with that you would hear complaints about... during the summer time, "well where are you going on holiday this year?" "I don't know, we've lost the dachas on the Black Sea, I don't know where we'll go. We can't afford to go anywhere else," because ministries actually had vacation locations for their employees, and over time all of those things began to drop away and be replaced by vacuum cleaners.
