This Youtube Video is amazing for two entirely different reasons.
First, it shows a Russian policeman actually stopping a vehicle on the highway for a violation — in this case, only one working headlight. The norm in Putin’s Russia, of course, would be for a cop to stop a driver for no reason other than to collect a fat, juicy bribe for continued passage. That doesn’t mean, of course, that this officer didn’t intend to ignore the violation in exchange for such a bribe, just one one of many reasons that Russia’s roads are among the world’s most dangerous.
But even more shocking is what happens next.
As the officer is conversing with the driver, a massive pack of wolves appears behind him and charges right down the middle of the highway, which is by Russian standards very highly advanced. This is not, in other words, the middle of nowhere. And wolves, not the police, own the roads.
