Tsar Performers: 5 Imperial Russian Factories That Have Outlasted the Rest
by Oleg Skripnik on Sun, Nov 20, 2016
The Russian Empire could not be called an industrially developed country. In 1913 only 15 percent of the population lived in the cities and it was only in the Soviet period that Russia managed to industrialize its economy.

Why Russia Could Put Night Trains Back on the Rails in Europe
by Bryan MacDonald on Sun, Nov 20, 2016
Growing up in Ireland, where the longest inter-city rail journey is about four hours, night trains were never on the agenda. Instead, the closest we got was the odd Hitchcock film on daytime TV. That was until I reached my early 20s and took a maiden trip from Prague to Budapest… and it was a disaster.First, my traveling companion was visited by a large rat while I tottered off to buy tickets. Once on board, things got even worse. Undesirables opened and closed the unlocked doors all night, and it all culminated in some unfortunate Japanese tourists suffering the theft of a camera and myself having to forcibly retrieve it from a gentleman with gold teeth.

by Alexei Lossan on Sun, Nov 20, 2016
By the end of summer 2016 Russia reached third place in the rankings of the largest car markets in Europe, according to a report (in Russian) prepared by analysts from the Autostat agency, though analysts point out this is merely the result of seasonal trends and that the industry remains in crisis.The report says that Russia has been able to improve its position in the « European championship » thanks to the usual summer reduction of car demand in Europe.
