But why don't we see such pictures from Canada, for example?

Because they don't have such roads?

What about the road to Inuvik? Or to Prudhoe Bay in Alaska? Those are both gravel.

Ok. From what I saw on Google, both of them have small functional airfields, which probably are used for cargo delivery anyway, means lower addiction to ground transportation. There isn't high population in those areas and I assume these roads have extremely lower AADT + better maintenace of them compared to situation in that part of Russia.

Latin script can be seen on M10 highway road signs (between of Moscow and St. Petersburg).

This is how they do it in Canada:

Dempster Highway:
The design of the highway is unique, primarily due to the intense physical conditions it is put through. The highway itself sits on top of a gravel berm to insulate the permafrost in the soil underneath. The thickness of the gravel pad ranges from 1.2 m up to 2.4 m in some places. Without the pad, the permafrost would thaw and the road would sink into the ground.

The latter happens in Russia.

This is a winter road which is closed on summer. This drivers enter it illegally. There is no summer road to Naryan-Mar ATM. But there is an airport and a seaport.

New motorway in the western suburbs of Moscow (Odintsovo). It runs parallel to M1.

I think this motorway (?) will run to the suburbs of Moskow only. On the other hand it can be new part of M1, who knows?

Not everything of that are expressways. There are large road projects in overall. But most of them are intercity connections, renovation of express streets (avenues), important junctions. Some are expressways.

Those pink are new expressways.
Not sure about those black can be treated as expressways.
