Many sites say that there are no windmills left in the Ulyanovsk region. We believe that this is not far from being true. However, here is a picture of the mill, and it doesn’t say anywhere that it has collapsed. As the photograph was made long ago in 2008, we are not sure if this mill exists. We think the answer is more likely to be "no". But until this fact is confirmed, it is here.
Judging by the photo, the mill is of the south-east type. The barn around the frame structure has collapsed.
