  1. In the photo with the woman and girl, is that a photo/portrait of Putin on the wall behind them?

    Is that a common practice in Russian households?

  2. If I was a Russian steel door mogul, I’d have a lot of egg on my face right now. Wait, did I say steel doors? I meant “canned cardboard innards”. What a joke, it comes apart like an easter egg.

  3. Yes, it’s really in Russia, but it is only a part of show-room in the steel-doors shop. It shows quality of very cheap chinese doors, which looks more or less not bad, and helps customers to see the difference instead of long tolks with a salesman)))/ It’s not a joke, just economy of time)))/

  4. I don’t get it. In Holland where we have almost no wood houses are made of bricks but the doors are made of wood. In Russia where there’s plenty of wood they build houses of wood but the doors are made of steel? Never seen anything like this…

    • Steel doors became very common after the collapse of the USSR. Criminality went sky-high, and Russians are already quite paranoid by nature, so there you have it.

      The first thing everybody does when moving into a newly built apartment is to have a padded steel door installed, of course as far into the corridor [thus adding some extra space to the hall] as possible.
      This is the sad truth – no-one trusts anybody anymore. Steel doors on the private and on top of that coded locks on the public entrance.

  5. Steel, wood, Chinese, Russian, whatever . . .

    A dedicated driver in an automobile packed with a sufficient amount of explosives opens the door every time. πŸ™‚

      • Okay friend this is my third attempt to reply to you. If this one makes it in, please see my full reply, along with instructions for opening door on 22nd floor, below.

  6. I’ve never seen Putin’s photo in households but I’ve seen a few in offices. To see Putin’s photo at someone home, visit China — he is like a rock-star for teens there.

    • Dear Texas1,

      Soon you will have the privilege of hanging the portrait of Presidents Barack and Michelle Obama over your dinner table, to watch over you and make sure you eat your vegetables before dessert.

  7. Dear friend,

    Thank you for your inquiry. The answer, provided with technical assistance from my good friend Ibrahim who recently returned from Lebanon, is:

    You don’t. You simply load the auto with enough explosives to bring the 22nd floor down to the first. The narrow hallway will be taken care of during the descent.

    Wishing you success in the creation and exploitation of chaos,
    M. Ahmadinejad

  9. Well I think you get what you pay for no matter if your in Russia, Ukraine or the USA. I know they sell really heavy duty doors as well in Russia. When I visited I even saw one apartment that had a steel cage with a security door before you even reached the main apartment door. Lets hope things get better for the average citizen so such items will not be a required in the future.

    we are a chinese factory for produce steel security doors, and we have dealers in Russia, but i think the importer in Russia want to get very good price, so factory make poor quality door, for our Intime doors, the dealer usually order 0.8mm steel, and filling Ceramic fiber, time against technical opening is more than 3 hours
    pls contact us for inquiry!
