These are first people who they came across on their way during the past two days. Each Khanty man hunting for sables is given two barrels of gasoline. These man and woman carry the barrels back because they have mistakenly received diesel fuel. They are heading to Laryak and the trip is going to take them two days.

  1. I WOULD LOVE TO HAVE RUSSIA AS THE NEIGHBOUR OF CANADA,INSTEAD WE HAVE THE MOST HATRED COUNTRY IN THE WORLD AS NEIGHBOUR,NOT TO MENTION THE MOST TROUBLE MAKER OF THE WORLD

  2. Actually, culture is the problem. Russia has a modern Continental Euro-type while the U.S. is bogged down in a puritanical, anti-intellectual mode. Think Europe in the 1200s; think Andy Jackson, Millard Fillmore, Ronald Reagan, etc. There are a few islands of hope (but not many). How about the U.S.’s thirst for your oil? We’re sending a ton of money your direction. You send us oil and arctic air.

    • Pretty sure Russia don’t has a continental euro culture.
      And very sure US have a fake thinn lair of “puritanism”. In fact it’s a zombie-culture controled by jewish minds. Probably that’s why is is incresingly more and so popular to the rest of the world
