As you can see, in some cities tram network preserved relatively good (like Yekaterinburg, Chelyabinsk, Samara, Volgograd, Krasnodar, Naberezhnye Chelny, Oryol, Taganrog). However, in the majority of cities, tram networks were either decreased after dismantling of tramlines or totally closed.
...
Numbers beneath each map refers to the tram fleet size - specifically, only to passengers vehicles - and not to the network total length, to be exact.
From these figures, we can see that there are widespread signs of decline in the service, even in some cases where the infrastructure has been kept and even expanded.

Thanks. They missed legend that explains these numbers.

Ust'-Ilimsk has one of the newest tram systems in Russia (opened in 1988).

But the newest one appears to be in the Siberian village of Cheryomushki (Republic of Khakassia), which opened in 1991:

It's not complicated. Just pay your power bill!

Government support for Russian rolling stock manufacturers
11 Feb 2016



RUSSIA: Details of government support for the rolling stock manufacturing industry were set out by Prime Minister Dmitry Medvedev on February 9.

Speaking at Tver Carriage Works during a conference on the prospects for the rolling stock industry, Medvedev said the government’s objective was to ensure the profitable production of modern, safe and innovative vehicles so that the sector which employs more than 200 000 people becomes an ‘economic growth point’.

He has signed a directive approving a 7bn rouble government support programme for rolling stock builders in 2016. This bans operators from using life-expired vehicles, reimburses operators for the costs of procuring new vehicles, and provides subsidies for the development of innovative wagons. VAT on long-distance passenger services has been cut from 18% to 10%, with operators – primarily RZD’s Federal Passenger Co – required to spend the difference on the procurement of new stock. Innovative wagons will also receive a discount on empty mileage, reflecting their lower impact of the infrastructure
