      • Because they still can, why do you worry about what others do in a free society? Respect their rights to do what they want and maybe they’ll accept your right to engage in your own not to bright silliness as well.

    • It’s a lie. Smoking is prohibited in all areas of the airport, there are special smoking rooms installed with air filtering machines.

  1. The worst airport of Moscow! It’s so badly organized now, that I’m wondering about the level of chaos they will get after finishing of this reconstruction and expansion works. It perfectly follows the Russian construction tradition – “Build first, think after”.

    • Being pseudo-analytical and using a wrong logical construction – logical induction to bottom-line the whole country and people – How noble. BTW, I am sure those problems are temporary, exactly for the time period of reconstruction.

      • Oh, come on. Seems like you’ve never been to Domodedovo. The “temporary” problems there last since Soviet times, so you can freely treat them as constant problems. And if you do not agree with “Build first, think after” – just go and take a look at the “Moscow City” project, my noble friend.
