    Here is a example of math calculations. How many trains the main track can support. Or best said at what time delay the trains can be on main tracks. Divide the total time per day to number of trains you whish to put and you get the delay. Then is sincronize time of trains by conductors and station operators. Add 3 main tracks and numbers of trains are multiplied and distance of time between trains is less.

    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
    Russian technology.

    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.

    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.
    i dont see bikes going strong its very cold for very long out there.

    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.

    On the other thread the question about the impact of the ruble devaluation was raised. The above points to some of the fallout of this.
    High priced foreign goods vendors are squeezed out of the market and are replaced with cheaper domestic vendors. Nothing stops
    these domestic vendors from forming partnerships with foreign firms. I guess Toshiba couldn't be bothered with localizing production
    in Russia. Too bad for Toshiba.

    Toshiba tried to make the claim that they just didnt have the market. But 10% of the market is quite huge actually. So it is exactly as you said, the Russian/Chinese JV will replace that demand and even capturing 10% of the market is huge, and if they can export, even larger. It is apparently not a company but Chinese government is investing in it in Russia. And apparently public demand or investment (if I got the translation right). Another win for Russia imo.

    Rostov-on-Don airport may be opened morning March 21

    The deputy governor said about 300 square meters of the runway should be repaired

    ROSTOV-ON-DON, March 20. /TASS/. The airport in Rostov-on-Don may be opened before 9 in the morning on Monday, the region’s deputy governor Alexander Grebenschikov told reporters on Sunday.

    Head of Investigative Committee allows runaway cleaned from debris of crashed Boeing

    "We plan to open the airport before 9 in the morning tomorrow," he said.

    The deputy governor said about 300 square meters of the runway should be repaired.

    Earlier on Sunday, Minister of Transport Maxim Sokolov said the main work at the crash site now is carried out by experts of the Investigative Committee and of the Interstate Aviation Committee, who "should approve beginning of repairing work."

    "Today, during the daylight all necessary elements of the plane will be collected for a thorough analysis and for clearing out reasons of the accident," he said. "At about 6p.m. will begin works on the runway and also to restore the equipment, so that the airport could begin working on Monday morning."

    The minister said the damage to the runway was not dramatic and the repairing will take about ten hours.

    At the same time, technical flights have begun already - two planes without passengers on board have left Rostov-on-Don, and four more planes may depart, too.

    On March 19, at 3:42 a.m. Moscow time (0:42 a.m. UTC), FlyDubai’s Boeing 737-800 crashed at Rostov-on-Don’s airport during a second attempt to land in complicated weather conditions (strong side wind and rain). The plane served regular Flight FZ 981 from Dubai. The passenger jet with capacity for 189 passengers had 62 people aboard, including the crew. None has survived.

    The investigation looks into several leads: a pilot error, a technical malfunction, bad weather conditions, and others.

    Putin establishes council for Russia’s strategic development

    The Russian president will head the new council, his deputy will become PM Medvedev

    MOSCOW, June 30. /TASS/. Russian President Vladimir Putin has established a Council for the country’s strategic development and priority projects, according to the presidential decree posted on the Kremlin’s website on Thursday.

    The head of the Russian state will personally head the Council while Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev will be his deputy.
    17th Council in the Kremlin

    As Putin’s decree says, the Council is "a deliberative body" and has been established to ensure interaction among various levels of power "in the consideration of issues related to Russia’s strategic development and the implementation of priority projects."

    "The Council for Strategic Development and Priority Projects has been established for the purposes of improving the activity for the strategic development of the Russian Federation and the implementation of priority projects," the Kremlin press office said.

    The presidential decree to establish a new Council thus abolishes two other such bodies: the Council for the Implementation of Priority National Projects and Demographic Policy and the Council for Housing Policy and Better Affordability of Housing.

    Therefore, 17 such deliberative bodies have remained in the Kremlin instead of the previous 18 Councils, excluding the State Council and the Security Council.

    Idea origination


    President Putin announced the idea of creating the presidential Council for Strategic Development and Priority Projects at the St. Petersburg International Economic Forum on June 17.

    According to the president, the Council should deal with key projects aimed at implementing structural changes in the economy and the social sphere and increasing economic growth rates, including the projects intended to raise labor productivity, improve the business environment, provide assistance to small and medium business and support exports.

    According to the presidential decree, the new Council is also assigned the task "to determine key parameters for drawing up the list of priority projects and programs in the basic areas of Russia’s strategic development."

    Council composition

    "The Council’s Presidium shall be formed to deal with the current issues of the Council’s activity," the presidential decree says.

    According to the decree, the chairman of the Russian government will be chairman of the Council Presidium.

    The Presidium "shall draw up the list of priority projects and programs and evaluate their implementation, and set up bodies for the governance of priority projects and programs," the decree says.

    The Council will hold sessions no less than once a quarter while the Presidium will convene at least monthly, the decree reads.

    Aside from Putin as the Council chairman and Medvedev as his deputy, the new deliberative body will include, in particular, presidential economic aide Andrei Belousov, Audit Chamber Head Tatiana Golikova, First Deputy Prime Minister Igor Shuvalov, Deputy Prime Ministers Olga Golodets, Arkady Dvorkovich, Dmitry Kozak, Sergei Prikhodko, Dmitry Rogozin, Yuri Trutnev and Alexander Khloponin, Deputy Chairman of the presidential Economic Council and former Finance Minister Alexei Kudrin, Speakers of the upper and lower houses of Russia’s parliament Valentina Matviyenko and Sergei Naryshkin, Finance Minister Anton Siluanov, Economic Development Minister Alexei Ulyukayev, presidential envoys in Russia’s federal districts, representatives of the business community and experts.

    Council and the budget

    Russia’s draft budget for 2017 and for the three-year period should take into account the priorities, which the Council for Strategic Development will work out, Prime Minister Medvedev said.

    "After the Council’s session [in July], we’ll hold a session of its Presidium to discuss how to build this work and link the activity within projects with the new federal budget drafting," Medvedev said.

    Work within the implementation of priority projects should be taken into account in the process of drafting a new budget, he added.

    According to the premier, the Council will also formulate specific goals and indicators of the efficiency of priority projects required for the dynamic development of the Russian economy.

    "It will be necessary to work out together with regions, the business community and experts specific goals and indicators and, of course, projects, on which we’ll be working," the premier said.

    According to the premier, the priority areas should include efforts to create favorable conditions for small business, support exports other than raw materials, develop mortgage lending, housing rent, the housing and utilities sector and the urban environment.

    "And, of course, work will be continued on health care and education, the improvement of the situation in single-industry towns and the development of a modern network of roads," Medvedev said.

    Also, some additional projects may be developed to focus on labor productivity, the creation of highly productive workplaces, the improvement of controlling and supervisory work and the environmental activity, the Russian premier said.

    As Prime Minister Medvedev said at a government meeting, the Council for Strategic Development will hold its first session in July "to determine basic areas, on which efforts should be concentrated."
