Kind of a false comparison. Of course the buildings are going to look drab and depressing in black in white - they're not high architecture. The big difference however is that each of the housing complexes you refer to are different - they may have similarities, but they have different designs and layouts. Contrast that with Soviet era construction where there were probably a dozen different designs used to construct thousands upon thousands of buildings across Soviet territories. It's that repetition and lack of originality which makes them depressing (that and the uniform color of concrete).
Might want to rewrite that first sentence . . . seems like it's missing something. Also, wtf - why did law enforcement feel the need to respond so harshly?
