A new three-level interchange was opened for traffic in the Krasnodar Krai, near the settlement of Džubga. It connects highway M4 and road A147 Džubga-Soči.

That is awesome. This motorway has it all; eight lanes, an underwater tunnel, a high-level, double-deck bridge, two amazing cable-stayed bridges. Brilliant

I think the way they built it, it would serve mostly for through-traffic. There are interchanges in the south and the north, but none in between, at the stadion for example.

OSM indicates that maybe 0ne or two addtional interschanges might be built. Is that true?

I could not find it out at the project page MichiH provided.

That last image has a very American feel to me. Looks like an interchange in a midsized US city.

While the MKAD ring is ancient there was no driveable road across Russia from Petersburg to Vladivisotok until perhaps 2010 or later.

But the Soviet Union ran out of cash by 1980 and the next 2 decades were largely lost ones except the MKAD upgrade in the 1990s to 10 lanes. The old Soviet component states resumed road building, to various degrees, in the 2000s but the ones that have some cash are bloody massive countries relative to their populations ( Russians, Kazacks and Turkmens) so it ain't easy at all.

poland is probably the biggest stand out in terms of motorway construction post Soviet Union.

My understanding is that Russia has done a lot of highway upgrades but they haven't been motorway standard. The country is simply too big for it to be economical.

Most M-roads in European Russia are probably viable as motorways at some point. They likely carry more traffic than some long-distance Interstate Highways in western United States. The European part of Russia contains most of the population and has many larger cities. European Russia has approximately 110 million people, some 85-90 million who do not live in either the Moscow or Saint Petersburg metropolitan areas.

Can you please give an example of that? Just curious.

Quite a number of Interstate Highways in the western U.S. carry low traffic volumes. Large segments of I-15, I-25, I-70, I-80, I-90, I-94 carry only 5,000 - 10,000 vehicles per day.

For example I-80, the transcontinental route from San Francisco to New York City, has large stretches in Nevada with less than 10,000 vehicles per day. In Wyoming, almost no stretches of I-80 carry over 15,000 vehicles per day. It can be more extreme, I-25 carries only 3,000 vehicles per day between Casper and Buffalo. I-94 has a 500 kilometer stretch from Montana into North Dakota where volumes do not exceed 5,000 vehicles per day.

Russias main cities are in an East West line and building a high quality road from Petersburg to Moscow and on East makes sense, the only question is how far east, perhaps to Kazan.

They also need a high quality road Moscow - Volgograd or so. After that the motorways would be city rings etc and a few km out from those cities, EG Vladivostok.

It is pointless building a full motorway across Siberia from west to east.

I think that Novosibirsk via Kazan and Chelyabinsk could possibly be justified (especially as Russia's centre of population is moving east, though that's more to do with a decline in the west rather than a boom in the east). It's the third biggest city and there are frequent enough large cities en-route and cities like Yekaterinburg aren't too far off it.

I'm not sure the via Samara route, which is the current main route east, is quite as viable for an M11-style motorway entirely replacing the Soviet-era main road.

Russia's 'problem' on this front is that the Soviet-era roads are rather good and the railways likewise and so going beyond bypasses and commuter motorways for the big cities is hard to justify as intercity traffic can be carried on the already high-capacity roads, and on the railways.
