Hmmm... same type of Ferris Wheel baskets as Pripyat, but they are yellow.

Either Russia or a former USSR state?

Likewise, Huge.

I found a very similar looking ferris wheel somewhere or other which I eventually tracked down to Prydniprovsʹkyy Park in Kremenchuk, Ukraine... but it looks - at least according to Google Maps - that it's since been torn down.

'Tis a tricky one alright.

Ukraine is the closest guess so far. Correct country not guessed.
