Once upon a time, a few Russian guys built a super all terrain vehicle and dubbed it Sherp.

Sherp is an ATV with superb off-road performance, with no one else even coming close.

Happy and excited about building such a cool thing, Russian guys invited the Western experts to share a joy of this engineering marvel. The Western experts looked at Sherp and said: “Russians would do anything not to fix their roads.”

I have a counterargument to this sort of expert logic involving French perfume and Russian sauna ( banya.)

Comment by Rodger Olsen, a science fiction author from Californian, made for a Forbes article on Russia’s economy

“You really need to read more. The dollar volume of the Russia economy is misleading and somewhat irrelevant. What is relevant is that Russians can wander into the store and buy anything from water heaters to toilets to shingles and toilet paper, all made in Russia. The country is virtually self sufficient and, therefore, almost immune to sanctions and inflation caused by currency fluctuations. Why did you think the sanctions failed so miserably? The idea that all they produce is oil is a fiction. Energy in all its forms is only 13% of the Russian economy. Since it currently pays almost 40% of the bills for the federal government, outsiders assume, wrongly, that Russia doesn’t do or make anything else. They forget that Russia is the leading exporter of grain worldwide, a major supplier of industrial machinery and the world’s second largest arms exporter, among other things..”

I have been researching for this SITREP for a month, and there is a trend on YouTube to terminate accounts that post videos of Russian made products and technologies.

What does Russia produce? 1

 Information and intelligence systems for driverless buses, cars and tractors

Electric driverless cars and buses Shuttle developed and built by the Auto Motor Scientific Research center  NAMI

A Shuttle minibus that are being currently used by some university campuses and other organizations doesn’t even have a room for a driver. A vehicle is being driven by an intelligence system with technical seeing capability several levels of control, and considered to be safer than conventional vehicles. An artificial intelligence receives and processes all the incoming information, this AI brain never sleeps and doesn’t check its phone messages.

NAMI engineers also invented an “Adaptive transportation system” and instead of large buses the streets will get many driverless mini-busses that come and go as they are needed and requested through the system.
