Blogger sergeydolya has been recently to Chukotka (cold region in the Russian Far East) and prepared some interesting materials to his readers. One of them is all about roads. Blogger did not see asphalted ones at all (few only in a settlement of Pevek). It’s a land of washed out roads and paths.
It’s kinda tough but people never complain. They take the situation for granted. Just like adverse weather they cannot change.
