I already mentioned the subway before, imagine if it was not here. Moscow and its 10 million inhabitants would come to a complete stop, something that already happens quite a lot as you can see here on a random day in the week. In the middle of the city is this 12 lane circle road (on of 3 main circle roads!), completely filled and slowly moving. No bicycle lanes by the way..
The decades of western pressure to make Russia accept western values has worked: also here everybody now wants a big SUV when there is absolutely no need for it. Capitalism has won: now everybody wants to consume.
