A warehouse full of Russian landers

Click any image to enlarge
The Russian space program has their re-enetry vehicles, which they call landers, come down on the steppes. What do they do with them when they recover them? Apparently little more than transport them to a warehouse where they are allowed to fall into disrepair.

These pictures are from the EnglishRussia article Forgotten memories of space exploration. There are more after the jump, and even more as well as some commentary at the link.
