RT: "Russian cars: Wheeling and dealing"

I don't like RT. It's news are just shameless propaganda, as their US correspondent recognized on air during Russia's invasion of Crimea. But the channel does also make some other harmless programs, like this one on Russian cars, and their perception within Russia today (well, more like around 2007).


They start with some history, from the early days of luxury Russo-Balts from Riga, through Soviet times to the current perception of Ladas or Volgas, from Moscow, were they are seen as cheap and lacking prestige, to places were Kaliningrad or Vladivostok, were imported used European and Japanese cars, respectively, rule the roads.
