Diverted river

A flag marks the old path of the river diverted away from the pipeline. Large parts of forest have also been cleared to make way for the pipeline that will transport oil from Russia to China. Until now, Russian oil has been transported to China by rail. The new pipe will allow a rapid increase in oil exports between the two countries.
