  1. So Russian Stop signs are in English? Also, they use equipment that is American, as well. How fascinating. Never knew this.

    • I do not know about this equipment, but Caterpiller farm and bulldozing equipment is made in US, unlike most heavy manufactured stuff nowadays. Maybe Russia and the Ukraine and the US could form a consortium to manufacture at home and have their businesses reside there also. Trade back and forth. As if we live in a sane world.

  2. But for the grace of God, there goes my county. Looks like what has been done in the American west.
    It saddens me to think that this apocalyptic destruction is necessary for my living standard.
    If I were younger I would emigrate to Siberia and live in a dirt house and do like Rednecks and shoot at strangers.
    It’s too late for Alaska, already.

  3. Looks like great progress at least they can be self-reliant with their materials.

    Beats the heck out of being at the mercy of CHINA like the USA importing everything…
