Where is this exactly? I think this is the first motorway toll road in Russia or am I wrong?

M4 "Don": Moscow - Voronezh - Rostov-on-Don - Krasnodar - Novorossiysk.

The route starts at the Moscow Ring Road (as Kashira Highway) and runs south, passing west of Vidnoye, east of Domodedovo, west of Kashira and Stupino, where the Caspian Highway branches off to the east. The Don Highway continues across Tula Oblast west of Venev, through Bogoroditsk and Yefremov, then across Lipetsk Oblast, passing through Yelets and Zadonsk, and then across Voronezh Oblast, bypassing Voronezh and Boguchar. After crossing the Don River near Rostov, the road continues even further south to Krasnodar and Novorossiysk.

The Don Highway, extensively upgraded and widened in the 2000s, is an artery connecting Moscow with Southern Russia. In the summer months, the road suffers from heavy traffic congestion caused by summer vacationers travelling to the Black Sea resorts like Sochi and by lorries transporting fruit from the southern provinces to the heavily populated areas of Central and Northern Russia.

Here is first motorway toll section in Russia at M4. It was opened in November 1998 in Lipetsk Oblast (length - 20 km; in December 2010 it was increased to 50 km).

I know where M4 runs, but I was wondering which part of the M4 is seen in those pictures.

If this part is a motorway judging by your words, then why signs are blue in the last picture?

As it can be easily guessed now, this is the motorway toll section in Lipetsk Oblast which was expanded in December 2010.

These photos were made in late November 2010, before the opening of this section. During the reconstruction it did not differ from the rest part of M4.

You mean there are green signs now? I don't think so.
May be speed limit is more than 90 km/h only in some parts.

Not only. As I know for new roads it is allowed to set speed limit according with the technical specifications of the road. So if the road is designed for 120 km/h speed this speed limit may be set.

I noticed this on plenty of pics of Russian and Ukrainian cities. We were discussing about this on Polish road infrastructure section as well.
