Factory under the ground - level 3

Factory under the ground - level 3

Russia's secret underground town--not as magical as it sounds.

200 migrant workers have been found in chambers hidden underneath a Moscow market. This Interior Ministry video shows a factory with sewing machines, living quarters, a cafe, a cinema and even a chicken coop.

In 2011 a similar underground settlement of illegal migrants was discovered in an abandoned Soviet-era bomb shelter.

Interesting words: chamber (big room for a special activity), quarters (rooms where workers live), coop (building for small animals, especially chickens), abandoned (left by people).
