    I am eagerly waiting for this crusade of truth from NATO.

    And I am sure I will be waiting decades from now.

    Careful now, we don't want you to taste Freedom (without lube). Anyway, this was bound to happen, the only thing that worries me is the damn quality control. If that's covered, who cares if the car is overengineered. If the Chinese have contracted it, it might actually have a nice portfolio soon enough.

    Toronto's fancy new streetcars back in the 1980s had rather serious quality control issues.   The only thing
    that matters is that they are fixable and in a reasonable time frame.   If the cars fall apart after a couple of
    years of use, then they are crap.   But I will dismiss this scenario out of hand.   UVZ is not in the business of
    shaving mm of steel to save a few bucks at the expense of part integrity.   The new rage in the west.

    Same here, the difference in price is big, but doesn't seem to indicate the carboard trams and trains initially from China. As i said, there's good chance that the R1 is overengineered, rather than crap. So instead of shaving, the tram's rolling train might actually be tractor tough.

    Well we are talking about UVZ here, they have a very good track record in quality control. If it's over-engineered as you say, all that means is that they can market less fancy and yet significantly cheaper versions of the R1 to poorer countries in Africa, Asia, Latin America, etc.

    From the pictures the ergonomy looks pretty good and as I said, you can see the various bits of prototyping, including the seats, some finition details as well as the general ideas behind the car are sound, but still to be refined. On the other side the layout is typically on par with what you expect from Bombardier (which is basically the leading company for this). What I didn't failed to get also is the optimization of the commands and FoV for the driver. This also means that this could be governed and driven, it could well roll on it's own (depending on how it will be connected, ground line or air line).

    Here Flexity Outlook in Brussels.

    And this is R1. There's a 2.3 vs 1 million price tag battle here.

    The felt seats can be changed overnight, with different materials and still cost the same I guess.

    Very good Russian product from what I see, it would have to be tested thoroughly.

    Construction of Russian Section of Railway Bridge to China to Start in 2015

    Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev said that construction for the Russian section of the first railway bridge to cross the Amur river and connect the country with China will begin in late 2015.

    KHABAROVSK (Russia) (Sputnik) – Construction will begin in late 2015 for the Russian section of the first railway bridge to cross the Amur river and connect the country with China, Russian Deputy Prime Minister Yury Trutnev said Thursday.

    "A decision was made to finance this project at the expense of the Far East Development Fund and the Russian Direct Investment Fund. A government commission session took place, the work will begin next year," Trutnev told reporters.

    He added that the construction of the Russian part of the bridge may take a year and a half.

    A Russia-China intergovernmental agreement for construction of the railway bridge was signed in 2008.

    China expects to finish the construction of its segment of the bridge by the end of 2015.

    According to Chinese estimates, the new railway bridge over the Amur River would diminish the distance for shipments through China's Heilongjiang province to Russia.

    Earlier reports suggest that, as of April 2015, China invested around 952 million yuan into the project, with total investment expected to be 2.64 billion yuan ($426 million).

    When were you in Moskva, Maxim? I went to Russia for two weeks in June. I managed to spend the last day at the Army-2015 expo in Kubinka because my relatives have a dacha there. I was thoroughly impressed with the improvements in infrastructure that I saw in Moskva and in Nizhniy Novogorod as well. I have been visiting Russia ever since the early 2000's when I was very young. The improvements over the years are nothing short of astounding and it will be interesting to watch the developments that will come on the near future especially with the World Cup coming.

    And to all talking about the R1 tram. No, it is not over-engineered. While it does look very pretty on the outside, the internals of the tram are nothing revolutionary but rather evolutionary.

    I was in Russia all of July and a week of August. Mostly on the black sea though. Stayed in Moscow a bit on my way in and the way back.

    In a related topic: I took the overnight train up from Novorossiysk to Moscow (#30 if anybody cares), which was also my first ever long train ride (>4hr), here's my thoughts...
    The ride was surprisingly awesome, the #30 route is the shortest of the available trains (22h total vs 1d 12h for the longest) and is a so-called "firmenniy" train so the quality is supposed to be better than average.
    I rode in a 4 person coupe. The wagons all had aircon which was good but had a nasty habit of either working a bit too actively or a bit weakly. As long as you have a sweater and socks prepped, you'll be fine.
    The beds all had fresh linens and were surprisingly comfortable, I slept pretty well. The wagons themselves were amazingly quiet, you could barely hear the train move. In fact, the movement of the train itself was so smooth that most of the time I missed when we stopped at stations because the acceleration & deceleration was hardly noticeable.
    Toilets all had running water, plenty of paper towels&napkins and were cleaned during the trip. No problems there.
    The food was pretty pathetic, a yoghurt and grenola bar for dinner and some pasta(?)(had literally no taste at all) and a piece of nondescript meat for breakfast. That was it.
    Then again, if you come prepared with food of your own, you'll be more than fine. Each wagon has a hot water dispenser that I used for plenty of tea and doshirak, so I was quite well-fed and comfortable. If you care to spend money you can go order food in the restaurant car, which I didn't do.

    The train rolls into Kazansky railway station which is probably the nicest in Moscow. It looks great on the inside and outside and is pretty easy to get to.

    Price was around 5300 roubles, which is a bit steep (plane tickets were 7200), but in the peak of the season when air tickets are scarce and way more expensive it's a pretty good option.

    Overall the trip really did away with some of the old stereotypes of Russian railways, sure there's still old non-firmenniy trains running around with terrible conditions, but if you care to look you'll find something that is more than tolerable.

    One thing I have to say about roads. Moscow is now completely decked out with good roads, as for the provinces...
    I stayed in a resort town on the black sea and the roads were pretty much unchanged from 10 years ago. Even worse was the attitude of the drivers, fucking knuckleheads all around, especially the ones from the caucasus. Cops stand nearby not giving a single fuck. Frankly the regional government needs to get off its ass and do what they did in Moscow: Massive and actively enforced fines. It's quite a turn of events when the drivers in Moscow are kinder and gentler than in the rest of the country.

    Also as a side-note. The all-access transit cards that are now in use in moscow (metro/tram/bus/aeroexpress) are awesome. Cheap and very pleasant to use.

    Last side-note: I was stopped by cops in a subway station to be a witness to an arrest. Myself being a kid of the 90s in the far-east I had a little bit of an internal freakout when it happened. I worried over nothing, the cops were super kind, apologized for the delay, thanked me for the help and gave me a free entrance to the metro after. For somebody who hadn't had any interaction with cops since the early 2000's the change was absolutely staggering. I'm not kidding when I say that I was amazed for a long time afterwards. Maybe it's just the capital, but holy hell was it a different experience than back in the day.

    Some more examples

    U.S. H-bomb still needs tritium to ignite the explosion. Russian H-bomb no longer need tritium. And Tsar Bomba somehow is the sign for Russian dominance in nuclear weapon.

    Biggest titanium producer is of Russia. Most of titanium products in the world is made in factory in Russia, under the hand of Russian workers and engineers. Titanium valley is in Russia.

    MiG-25 became the standard for the development of Su-27...37, MiG-29/35, F-14/15/18.

    Soyuz, Proton and RD-180 send most of Western satellites and spaceship into the sky. Most basic parts of ISS is made by Russia.

    Russia is the pioneer in smoothbore cannon, autoloader, composite armour, and today is unmanned turret.

    Russia is the pioneer in oil drilling technology and today it is still amongst the best in oil technology.

    But the "idiots" at Sputnik couldn't even do a proper photo for the piece. This only helps to muddy the perception of

    Rosatom's total order book amounted to $ 300 billion

    http://www.interfax.ru/business/467654

    It includes contracts for the construction of 30 nuclear power units in 12 countries, has 10 power units are negotiations

    Moscow. September 18. INTERFAX.RU - The order book of the corporation "Rosatom" includes contracts for the construction of 30 nuclear power units in 12 countries, has 10 power units are negotiations, said the head of the corporation, Sergei Kiriyenko met with Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev.

    According to him, the total portfolio of $ 300 billion and will grow.

    During participation in the conference of the IAEA "Rosatom" I have held talks with all partners. "What is important is not just the interest is preserved, the interest is growing ... We have in the past few years, the order book increased by 5.5 times. We have a date in the order book of 30 nuclear power units in 12 countries and in talks more than 10. I'm afraid to jinx it, we are now simultaneously in five countries, there are negotiations, discussions, "- said Kiriyenko.

    The head of "Rosatom" noted that in recent years the corporation has not lost any open tender. "Wherever announces an open tender, we have won these tenders. In fact through these tenders portfolio grew 5.5 times. Now it turns out that a full portfolio of orders - more than $ 300 billion, and it continues to grow. And our task in the coming years him to continue to increase strongly, "- said Kiriyenko.

    He also noted that cooperation in the nuclear sector allows us to develop relations between the two countries for a long time, since only the construction units takes from 7 to 10 years, and then continued service stations guarantee a job which are for 60 years with the real possibility of their work to 100 years.

    The volume of 10-year-old portfolio of foreign orders "Rosatom" in 2020 could rise to $ 150 billion from $ 101.4 billion at the end of 2014, according to a presentation of the state corporation in August.

    Lastochka High-Speed Train Launched Between St. Petersburg and Vyborg

    Lastochka trains operate on Oktyabrskaya Railway along two routes: St. Petersburg-Veliky Novgorod-Bologoye and St. Petersburg-Petrozavodsk.

    St. Petersburg (Sputnik) – The Lastochka high-speed train made its first journey from St. Petersburg to Vyborg on Wednesday.

    The Lastochka electric train was designed by Germany’s Siemens on the Desiro platform for commuter operation on Russian railroads. Its maximum speed is 160 km. per hour and its operating temperature ranges from 40 C to minus 40 C. Russian Railways chose Lastochka trains, which run today in several regions, for transportation during the 2014 Olympic Games in Sochi.

    “The Lastochka trains are a breakthrough. They have raised passenger service to an entirely new level in terms of both speed and comfort,” Acting Governor of the Leningrad Region Alexander Drozdenko said at the ceremony of launching the commuter train.

    He said that for 1.5-2 months the cost of a ticket on a Lastochka train will be the same as on its predecessor.

    Head of the Oktyabrskaya Railway Oleg Valinsky said that experts are considering the possibility of launching Lastochka train service to Volkhov, Gatchina and Sosnovo.

    Lastochka trains operate on Oktyabrskaya Railway along two routes: St. Petersburg-Veliky Novgorod-Bologoye and St. Petersburg-Petrozavodsk.

    A number of Lastochka trains run by Russian Railways were manufactured by Siemens. Now Uralskiye Lokomotivy (a joint venture of the Sinara Group and Siemens) has started their production. The first Russian train was produced in May. In all, Russian Railways ordered 1,200 cars for Lastochka trains. The project provides for 80 percent localization by 2017, but the partners are already ahead of schedule.

    Russian Railways signed a memorandum on electrification w / d line in Iran


    TEHRAN, Oct. 21 - RIA Novosti. Russia and Iran signed a memorandum on the electrification of the railway line in Iran, told reporters Russian Energy Minister Alexander Novak.

    "The most well developed (projects for cooperation between Russia and Iran - Ed.) Are now issues of cooperation in the electricity sector and the issues related to the development of rail transport. I know it has recently signed a memorandum on the electrification of a railway line. In my view, such examines three projects worth about $ 4.5 billion, "- said Novak, who is on an official visit to Iran.

    Railways in October 2012 completed the first project in Iran, in which the line was electrified Tabriz-Azarshahr length of about 46 kilometers and five stations. Following the meeting of the Russian-Iranian commission on trade and economic cooperation in September 2014 it reported that the volume of contracts for the construction of Railways and railway electrification in Iran could be around 8.4 billion euros and 5.6 thousand kilometers touch w / e.

    According to Novak, during his visit to Iran, the sides discussed cooperation between the two countries in various sectors of the economy. "For two years much has been done, before the lifting of the sanctions we have agreed on a list of joint projects worth up to $ 40 billion. Not only already signed memorandums, but new will be the basis to go to real projects for real business", - said, Nowak.

    "Deep enough elaborated projects on modernization and construction of power plants and the participation of the Russian company" Tekhnopromexport "together with the Iranian company. Here, too, about 4 thousand MW capacity. The cost of the joint project can be here more than 5 billion dollars. We hope that in these days of the results of the intergovernmental commission will sign specific documents ", - said the Russian minister.

    I've been wondering... How bad is the Russian infrastructure overall in 2015? Because I keep hearing about this stereotype that Russian infrastructure is absolutely terrible (which is certainly not true by global standards/averages). Some statistics/comparisons? How much has it improved since... let's say 2005? I'd imagine it's quite a bit better. And you can certainly see articles (on this very page Very Happy) and official announcements stating how new roads are being built etc., but how is it really going to improve overall at this rate by 2025 or so?

    You keep hearing this from the hate-filled anti-Russian propaganda spigots in the western media.

    See Austin's post of the Lastochka commuter train. It goes 160 km/h. We have nothing like this in
    Canada. The two main Canadian cities, Toronto and Montreal, are linked by a joint freight and passenger
    rail line where train speeds do not exceed 120 km/h. If they ran trains on dedicated passenger rails at
    150 km/hr it would take just over 3 hours to cover the distance. Instead it takes 4 hours plus time
    for stops. There isn't even a proper express train between the two cities. All trains make stops along
    the way.

    kvs , Russian Fastest Train is Sapsan its top speed is 250 km/hr upgradable to 350 km/hr
    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Sapsan

    Sapsan set records for the fastest train in Russia on 2 May 2009, travelling at 281 km/h (175 mph)[7] and on 7 May 2009, travelling at 290 km/h (180 mph).

    I honestly don't know how it is for the rest of Russia. Of course there are many projects and even some mega-projects on the way around Russia, but then other infrastructure might be left alone and just continue to age, only we wouldn't know about it. The only solution is to visit and see for yourself.

    I can tell you about St. Petersburg though. So in the past 10-15 years or so we've had:
    - Construction of the Ring Road & dam system to alleviate traffic and flooding
    - Beautification of the centre for the 300-year old city anniversary celebrations
    - Construction of a big new airport terminal, reconstruction of the older ones
    - Ongoing construction of the Western Diameter (highway toll road to Finland and Moscow)
    - Construction of the Ust-Luga cargo port
    - High-speed Sapsan rail services to Finland and Moscow, new trains for both commuter and inter-city services, renovation of all railway stations in the city and construction of many smaller rural stops and platforms
    - Beautification of several municipal residential areas of the city (with mixed results depending on local authorities), construction of playgrounds, kindergardens, outdoor sports facilities, etc...
    - Slow process of renovations of old residential and general-use buildings in the city centre
    - Construction of a lot of housing (last year was the highest pace since 1987), office buildings, business complexes, shopping centres
    - Construction of a new Ice Palace stadium, ongoing construction of a new Football stadium
    - 1-2 new metro stations, renovation of a few others, ongoing construction of a new metro line and a couple more stations
    - Renovation and upkeep of almost all roads in the city, partial reconstruction of rural road network in proximity to the city
    - Considerable progress on alleviation of traffic jams; removal of many tram lines from the centre and introduction of new high-speed tram lines further from the centre, new junctions, bypasses, bridges constructed
    - Ongoing and constantly changing, never-ending reconstruction of a small island in the centre hosting several warehouse buildings dating back to Catherine the Great times
    - High-speed internet everywhere, fast food, coffee chains, restaurants too
    - Improved tourist infrastructure - more tours and sights, a lot of new hotels and hostels, more English language support and signs
    - Plans for the construction of an Airport Express train service/line, that never seem to materialize

    Still need:
    - Beautification and better cleaning of residential areas, they still look fugly
    - Bicycle tracks and highways
    - Water taxis & buses
    - Some new or renovated schools, haven't seen one from the outside that doesn't look like a Soviet-style jumble of prefabricated concrete blocks
    - Increased pace of renovation of buildings in the city centre
    - Pollution reduction from truck traffic going right through the middle of the city to/from the port zones
    - Ferry terminal looks fugly
    - Reconstruction of the masses of Soviet-era housing blocks outside the city-centre (that most of the population live in), that are already 2 decades past their expiry date

    one good way would be to use cng in cars ,compressed natural gas - methane which russia is no1 in reserves for- public transport ,buses ,and taxis, and better recycling technologies and culture - that can be much improved.

    World’s first LNG-powered locomotive put into operation in Russia

    "The plant has handed over to the Sverdlovsk railway a TEM19 shunting locomotive. This is the world’s first railway engine powered by liquefied natural gas," the press service said

    BRYANSK, November 13. /TASS/. The world’s first LNG-powered railway locomotive has been put into operation in Russia, the press service of the Bryansk Machine-building Plant, the manufacturer of such engines, told TASS on Friday.

    "The plant has handed over to the Sverdlovsk railway a TEM19 shunting locomotive. This is the world’s first railway engine powered by liquefied natural gas," the press service said.

    NLG engines, according to the press service, will make it possible to reduce environmental burden and cut transportation costs. Thus, the new LNG locomotive will make it possible to save energy resources by 24% a year.

    The Bryansk Machine-building Plant is Russia’s biggest manufacturer of shunting and mainline locomotives, freight railway cars of various types. It is incorporated into the Transmashholding corporation.

    Russia’s Baltic Shipyard to commission power unit for world’s first floating NPP in 2016

    This is the Russian industry’s serious contribution to the Arctic region development

    ST. PETERSBURG, December 7. /TASS/. A floating power unit, which the Baltic Shipyard in northwest Russia is building, should be commissioned in September 2016, Vice-Premier Dmitry Rogozin said at a forum on the Arctic development on Monday.

    The power unit is designed for the world’s first floating nuclear power plant (NPP) Russia is building, the vice-premier said.

    "A floating power unit is under construction: this is unique innovation technology, which has evoked the interest of many countries, including the states far away from the Arctic region," the vice-premier said.

    "We should commission the 600 MW power unit in September next year," Rogozin said.

    This is the Russian industry’s serious contribution to the Arctic region development, the vice-premier added.

    The Project 20870 Academician Lomonosov floating power unit is a non-self-propelled vessel with two KLT-40 nuclear reactors on its board and is designed to provide electric power for Arctic areas and desalinate sea water.

    The power unit is expected to operate for a period of up to 40 years, given that its reactors are regularly re-charged every 2.5-3 years.

    The floating power unit will be operated by the vessel’s constant crew of several dozen people.

    The Academician Lomonosov floating power unit, which the Baltic Shipyard is building, is expected to operate in the town of Pevek in the northeastern Chukotka Autonomous District.

    So Omsk company Irtysh and Chinese company are setting up JV for manufacturing TV's in Russia. This comes after Toshiba moved from the market (they didnt manufacture in Russia but had 10% of the market).  So this is good news too.
