Additional description
This mill should not be confused with the mill in the Lermontov's Tarkhany in Penza region. The mill does not work, however, it has electricity inside, the doors are locked, and the structure seems to be looked after. Unfortunately we didn’t manage to photograph anything inside even through the holes or windows.

When we asked the passing woman who is using the mill now, she sincerely replied that there are no mills in that area.
