Default Price this photo

It's a photo taken from a helicopter of some Siberian Russian city (not by me!). Can you price it?

It's sort of a quiz...

I have no idea what the significance of this city would be and the aerial photo of the city. Siberia is somewhat of a place of mystery to me here in Canada and I don't know much about that part of the world, sad to say.

I also have no idea when this image was made. It could be very old and, if so, the value could be quite high.

Technically speaking, it is not a particularly exceptional photo by today's standards.

The image is not old, it's a new one (a chopper shot). I'll tell the significance in due time, meanwhile I am taking the bids

Question

Well, I've been trying to find out where this is --- it's a mystery. But fascinating. So no, I'm not yet ready to guess the price. Can I ask for a clue? What is the first letter of the name?

$1.700.000 (US)

The purchase was made a few days ago. I guess it doesnt matter what you shoot and how you shoot if you are the president (Medvedev in this case)

Sound more like a creative way to make a political donation.
