Safety First? Not Really! In Russia, oil is first, second and third priority. Passengers are fourth
You heard many times that safety is everybody's job. But in Russia this saying has a completely different meaning.
Russian Railways have seen a huge spike in the number of derailments and accidents over the last few years.
One thing that caught our attention is the safety of railroads in Russia. It doesn't seem like they're too concerned about protecting passengers, and they're more focused on the cargo they carry.
They don't even have viaducts or tunnels on quite many stations. People have to crawl under the cars and between the wheel pairs--watch this video how!
