I hardly see Belarussian or Russian trucks. I do remember a Belarussian truck that I saw on the 18, in Slovakia. It looked like a moving smoke bomb.

These were very modern trucks (their trailers look older though). In fact, I haven't seen any old Russian/Ukrainian truck lately. All modern vehicles. I guess they only use modern trucks for long distance travel, maybe some old crap for shorter distances into Central Europe?

I quite often see Belarussians driving old Russian MAZ trucks in Poland. Yes, they are sending these old trucks to some rather short distances like Slovakia, Poland, Lithuania, Latvia...

Methinks it's somewhat risky for those truckers to go oldstyle into west Europe as they're much more likely to get their ass busted by a police control or something.

Most Belarussian trucks are not different from others, most of them is modern, however I've also seen some older Mercedes trucks (mostly on M3).
Btw I've seen a car from Kazachstan a few days ago here in Budapest

American is not that exotic... If you want to show off, or your dick is too short, you can drive a huge monster with American plates without any problem. There are some companies in Europe who work as a "car rental", where you can "rent" an American car with US or Canada plates so you don't have to buy it and register in Hungary. There are plenty of them on the streets of Budapest.

The strangest are those black guys in their 15+ years old Japanese cars, with Nigerian and Ghana plates. You can see them parking around universities.

Btw. once I've seen a truck from Iran on the M1

Traffic information is sometimes a bit humorous in the Netherlands:

A2 Amsterdam -> Utrecht
Near interchange Amstel
Three closed lanes because of a closure

Traffic is actually diverted over the shoulder. But it is still humurous, yes
