According to his words, artist Alexander Bystrov depicted own wife as Woman in the centre of this mosaic panel:

Also, Alexander Bystrov depicted own cat at this panel (although, in 19th century British Shorthair cat would be looked a little strange at the Hay Market):

Speaking of Russian urban public transport, what is the current state of trolleybuses in Russia? Are they constantly upgrading to newer models and of expanding lines?

Well, comparing with tram systems, trolleybus networks preserved more or less good in many Russian cities. Currently trolleybus systems exists in 85 Russian cities (more than in any world country). Many trolleybus lines were dismantled after Soviet collapse, but some new lines were built.

Nowadays, there is no active extension of trolleybus lines in Russia. As a rule, in Russian cities operates obsolete models of trolleybuses and its modifications.

It's depends heavily on each individual city, it varies from total abandonment to great systems packed with 200*-201* produced trolleys.

In post-Soviet times, trolleybus ceased to operate in six Russian cities/towns:
1) Arkhangelsk, Arkhangelsk Region (April 10, 2008);
2) Grozny, Chechen Republic (December 1994);
3) Shakhty, Rostov Region (October 27, 2007);
4) Syzran, Samara Region (November 1, 2009);
5) Tyumen, Tyumen Region (October 5, 2009);
6) Vladikavkaz, North Ossetia (August 8, 2010).

The new trolleybus systems were opened in five cities/towns:
1) Khimki, Moscow Region (April 24, 1997);
2) Podolsk, Moscow Region (May 1, 2001);
3) Syzran, Samara Region (September 1, 2002) - closed on November 1, 2009;
4) Veliky Novgorod, Novgorod Region (December 1, 1995);
5) Vidnoye, Moscow Region (September 9, 2000).

Currently there was raised question about closing of trolleybus routes in Tolyatti (Samara Region) or replacement of it by other kinds of transport.

Last month (on September 15, 2013) in Moscow was opened new trolleybus line - from the Metro station "Yugo-Zapadnaya" ("South-Western") to terminal stop at the Lake Street, along the Pokryshkin Street and Nikulino Street. It's first Moscow trolleybus line that was built in post-Soviet times.

So are the Russians building new-model trolleybuses to replace the old Soviet era models?

(EDIT: Oh, never mind. Someone mentioned new models are being built.)

Yes: tram ceased to operate on on July 21, 2004; trolleybus - on April 10, 2008.

By the way, Arkhangelsk Tram was most northern tram system in the world (64°32′N) during all period of own existance (since June 26, 1916). Before 1916, this record belonged to the tram system in Trondheim, Norway (63°25′N), which was opened on December 2, 1901. Currently this status again belong to Trondheim Tramway.

The world's most northern trolleybus system (68°58′N) operates in Murmansk since February 11, 1962.

Yes, indeed (unfortunately, not only in Arkhangelsk). By the way, during short period Arkhangelsk was the largest Russian city (~ 350.000 residents) without any kinds of electric transport. Since October 5, 2009 this status belongs to Tyumen (~ 634.000 residents).

Yeah, but de-facto I would think about Voronezh. It's tramway is closed and trolleybus is like a walking corpse, while the city is 900+ thousand inhabitants.
It's sometimes mocked as a "Russian Curitiba", but if real Curitiba is well known for it's articulated/bi-articulated buses used due to lack of technology and funding, but doing an excellent job, the Voronezh is known for abandoning vast tram&trolley network in favor for private small and medium capacity buses.

Low cost fuel (compared to the rest of Europe).

Well, while the fuel cost in Russia is defenetily lower, mass electric transit is still cheaper, especially if organised properly.
This is confirmed by the fact, that in the dark times of 90s, city buses died nearly instantly in most of Russian cities, while electric transit struggled for many years, and in some cities it actually won the day.
The reasoning of closures was sometimes: "the public transit requires budget support, while private buses can ran on their own funds". Sometimes, like in Voronezh, public transit depots where on sweat spots for development, and investors found it cheaper to "persuade" local authorities to close the tram instead of relocating and building a new depot.

How does it radically changes the meaning of the name? The station is named after Saviour Church on Sennaya (Hay) Square that was located at this place:
"...The large building with the distinctive dark-green jug-like domes, popularly known as the Savour Church, used to dominate the surrounding district. It gave its name to Spassky Island (the central parcel of the downtown wedged between the Fontanka, Moika, Griboyedov and Kryukov canals) and Spasskaya Metro station..."
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Saviour...Sennaya_Square

Spasskaya Tower translates as Saviour Tower, not as Saviour's Tower. All these objects are named after Christ the Saviour.
