  3. Russia needs to spend infrastructure on their roads. Especially in the Siberian region. A national highway should never be unpaved or not serviced.

    • One can now drive all the way to Vladivostok on (relatively) good road. I would not have thought it possible just a few short years ago, but there it is. Once you get to Vladivostok however, is a whole ‘nother kettle of fish. Worst roads and streets I’ve ever seen in a large, modern city. Beautiful and friendly ladies in the Customs house, though.

  4. I have and idea, let’s try to drive around this large truck that just fell over on it’s side when it tried to traverse this muddy flooded section of road. I think our SUV can make it! lol

  5. USSR/Russia (same thing) spent all of its money building war equipment and missiles.

    It has 3rd world roads and still is 50 years behind the western countries.

  6. I am mystified how Russia operates on a daily basis, the people normally express no emotion and/or appear very defensive.

    Compared to Germany the culture is night/day different.

    Just like the road situation, the roads are terrible in Russia and man hole covers are stolen from the roads and accidents are routine from them.

    Russia/USSR (same thing – fancy name) has provide the world with military equipment 100 times over.

    Germany is where engineering/machining is world renowned and Russia is known for weapons manufacturing.

    • Not only that but they are some of the laziest workers in the world. They have not idea of the concept of a “deadline”, spend the day thinking up ways to avoid work and walk around in a stupor all day long nodding their heads and shaking hands. They all need a kick in the pants to get them going.

  7. Those guys with the 1988 OKA are majorly good at road trips. I wonder what they would do if they were turned loose in North America. It might make a good reality TV show.
