Russia: Driving News

Russian driving news: Keith Gessen posts a Tver resident's video of a ride across a recently reconstructed bridge over the Volga river – which, supposedly, “is now fully open to traffic in both directions”; Julia Ioffe writes at True/Slant about an impatient Russian MP who kept trying to get past a “huge column of tanks, armored vehicles, and missiles” – “some 3 km long” – that were moving along Minsk highway back to their base after the May 9 Victory Day parade on Red Square.
