Bentley in snow

People in Russia who became rich very fast ready to spend hundreds of thousands dollars on the top luxury cars. Moscow is the most populated with expensive cars city in Europe. You can meet them practically on every corner of Moscow downtown.

traffic light. Probably it reminds Arabian countries, where sheikhs love expensive cars also. One difference is that in Moscow the most expensive cars in the world are surrounded by a huge Russia itself, where the average salary of a school teacher is around $1200 a year. That's not a typo, an average school teacher in countryside gets paid not more than $100-$150 per month.

Police in action

 An awful video, made with cellular phone cam.  Russian police patrol takes  a guy from a street, leads him to a quite place and then one policeman punches him in a kidney, demonstrating the techniques he was told in a Police school. The man can’t walk after he was punched, he makes a few
steps and falls down. Here is the transcript of voice-over: - Spread your legs! - Now smile! “So how it was? I didn’t punch too strong” - And now say “I love Police!”  - Yeah tell, if you won’t tell I’ll beat you more! - Say “I love Police!”
