Here, I talked about it and that in Russia now give in private hands and that is good. Russia has a lot of built objects, buildings, bridges, and so forth today.On Kamchatka the bad roads in Russia.

The tigers are being poached. Chinese cross the border and take them, and occasionally people from the local tribes kill one and sell it to the Chinese.

Kamchatka is great. Khabarovsk and the Amur River are great. See the other thread for details.

The roads are naturally bad because of the temperature extremes. The same is true in Alaska and Canada. Hot summers, winters with heavy snow, the extreme seasons wreck roads.

Traffic-wise, it depends on which cities you're talking about. Not much traffic around the Far East and parts of Siberia, except for occasional logging trucks, that's been my observation.

Some people swear by Russian cars, they say they're more suited to the harsh winters. I know people who will only by Nevas (the little SUV-type car), others use jeeps (without shock absorbers!!).

Hee. Ruth4Truth,SUV without shock absorbers(You spoke of the springs?) With regard to the Kamchatka and Vladivostok (there was not already a few years) a lot of cars with shock absorbers but less often have to change the (bad roads and pits) and they are more parquet SUV than the true SUV.Но surprising and in Kamchatka, there are many of them (parquet) But If the true SUV-it must be a 1-on its springs, 2 - on special tires, 3 - raised (with a very large clearance) 4 - to have a winch. In the middle of quite another thing, a lot of cheap auto, most Russians but this again depends on the city.

No, I was talking about the Neva when I said "SUV". That may not be an accurate description, but it's the closest thing to an SUV that Russia was producing. It's the jeeps, like the army jeeps, that don't have shock absorbers (springs), but maybe nowadays they do.
