We are restarting our Daily Digest series today. We are collecting during the day the best funny and interesting stuff from the Russian internet and post it first on Twitter and Facebook and then, at the end of Russian day we post it as one big posting here on the website. So if you missed something during the day or you are not subscribed to our social media accounts above, then you can see it all here. So lets go. With a LADA “A four by three plus a tree” above

Yesterday there was a bloody shooting in a college in Crimea.

It turns out that the Russian cult vehicle “Breadloaf” UAZ model seems to be a clone of the Jeep Forward Control from USA:

UAZ

However the Jeep was in production from 1956 until 1965 and the UAZ started production in 1965 and… is still in production.

7 years ago, in fall 2011, a giant Mercedes sign was removed from a downtown Moscow building. It had been there since the early 1990s as a sign of early capitalism of modern Russia:

  1. I remember the Jeep FC. I think that most of them were pickup trucks,and only a few vans were built. It wasn’t until the 60s that vans became popular in the US.
