    Youtube channel with comparisons of before and after development in Russia.

    Nice counter balance to all the pro-Navalny and pro-regime change propaganda being spewed. According to Navalny
    corruption arrived in Russia together with Putin and that the Yeltsin years were the golden years. That is basically
    a quote and not some hyperbole on my part. Well, the videos above demonstrate that the real development showed
    up only after Putin arrived. The Yeltsin years were the gangster's paradise toilet years.

    I like that channel, if there's one thing the government has been pretty good in it's infrastructure. It's kind of insane how many bridges have been built around the country in the last 20 years for example.

    The only bridge they have been trying to build for the last 20 years that has been a total failure is the bridge to the west... but you get half way across the gap and there is nothing... they are simply not interested in meeting Russia half way, and the ground is strewn with land mines and barbed wire fences and electric fences and attack dogs...

    It seems that bridge has finally been cancelled and bridges and new motorways and high speed train services need to be built in pretty much all other directions, and I think Russia will be the better for it.

    The west grows rich and powerful by convincing the rest of the world that there is no other alternative... Russia and China and India can grow and develop and become a much better alternative to the US consumer model of excess which is destroying the planet.

    To be fair the US didn't invent it... they just carried on down the track the Europeans cut centuries ago and took it to its extreme... but now we can see where it is heading... well it is time to re evaluate what path you want for the future of your culture... and humanity.

    An example of urban road and bridge construction to improve traffic flow. The juxtaposition with the rail line is rather nice.
