If you go to Chukotka 80km away from Alaska across Bering strait, where Chukchas are permitted to hunt whales using their traditional methods, or Kamchatka where probably more brown bears than people, then you won't find many roads and developed infrastructure. How many people live in those regions? Few.Well I never been to Russia, but I have been to Poland. It is nowhere like US and nowhere as developed. I expect Russia is similar judging by the poverty rates and alcholism.
Not really. Somebody on here thinks Russia is not as developed as the West because they "lack creatvity", which I clearly debunked. It is the environment that makes what Russia is.
