    I just saw the news today, Is it possible to make power lines in Vladivostok to go underground? Does the geography of the region permit this setup? It looks like the storm that hit the city is unprecedented, they say the last time a similar situation happened in Vladivostok took place 30 or so years ago. Russia needs to be on the lookout, I'm pretty sure NATO propaganda media is already concocting negative news about the incident and paint the Russian government as incompetent and corrupt and needs to be replaced with a NATO sockpuppet Rolling Eyes

    Compared to Quebec it is impossible to push the lines underground. Use Google Earth and take a look, Vladivostock sits on top of rocky terrain.
    The expense of cutting through rock for a power line would be insane. In Canada, this option is avoided even if the ground is soft (sand or
    silt).

    One question for the drones coming out to piss on Russia: have any of the high voltage transmission lines collapsed?

    They did in Quebec.

    The same thing happened in Canada in the province of Quebec with the same long duration power outage.

    https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/January_1998_North_American_ice_storm

    The military can't fix all the damaged infrastructure all that fast.    They would have to have deployed
    generators but the number involved would be massive.   Nobody had the domestic backup power
    in Canada since we are not talking about one of those 4000 Watt generators but a larger one tied
    into the electrical system of the house.   In Russia people live in multi-residential buildings so those
    buildings would require hospital sized backup generators.   Those are huge and nobody anywhere
    installs them in apartment buildings.

    Anyone trying to spin this as a Russian fail is a scumbag.


    I am not trying to spin as "Russian fail", I just posting it because these things make the trust in the government go down.

    It always fluctuates.

    KVS is right.  I lived in Winnipeg back in the 90's and remember that power went out during winter storms. Thank goodness we had wood burning fire places and not natural gas BS cause we would have froze to death.

    Power outages and such is a major issue during any winter storm.  And Winnipeg is flat terrain mostly built on marsh land.  So there isn't nearly the excuse.

    The people bitching in the article are simply idiots. Yeah, it sucks but thats what happens. Because authorities are not right there and then at the very second is a laugh.

    There is EMERCOM and the 100. KSS of the armed forces, a special unit for emergeny situations established a few years ago (order from Shoigu). The unit brought equipment to western siberia after the covid outbreak there. But they can´t be everywhere.

    I never accused you so take it easy.

    Why would I accuse you?

    Clearly it is the liberasts and their western sponsors that would be spinning this.
