Actually they paint trees with white calcium to protect them against pests. It's a common practice found throughout the former SU.

Well, southern Russia does have some larger population centers, but I'd say the rural areas are quite empty.

Russian roads seem to be quite excepting those which are leading to Moscow

Very interesting. Too bad I can't read Russian. What is that dashed line going towards the Bering Strait?

If you build a road to Sakhalin, you can also build a road to Japan.

USSR must have had a much more developed road system.

for such a huge country 750 000 km of roads is nothing....

and it was nothing for it to buld more roads I think, considering the industrial power.

now it is much more difficult, but I am glad they are building very important projects.

It's a huge country, but also the population outside European side is quite low, also it's very hard to build things on permafrost.

Yeah, besides one or two major east-west axes east of the Urals, you don't need many roads further north.

I wonder how the drive from Chita to Petropavlovsk-Kamchatksy will be... It's a huge distance (like a cross continental trip in the U.S.) with only one city in between (Magadan). You need more gas stations on the way than there are inhabited places...

yeh ... but the railways are good developed and now they opened the first fast train line from Moscow to St.pete, and more routes will be opened!

and you can fly to every mayor regional city... every city with a pop. above 400.000 has an airport!

You must consider that most of these terrains are unhabited areas of nothingness. I think much better measure would only considering inhabited areas

The problem is that the inhabited areas are far apart, so roads connecting them run through uninhabited areas, which are huge
