  • This Russian Federal Highway runs from Moscow to
    Yakutsk City in Siberia.
  • The road doesnt have an asphalt surface,
    although it is a vital highway.
  • Every time it rains the road is paralyzed. These
    shots were taken a few days before approximately
    600 vehicles became stuck there. Hunger
    followed, and vehicles ran out of fuel.
    According to the witnesses, one woman gave a
    birth to a child whilst trapped on a public bus.
  • Construction teams were afraid to appear on site
    because, during their previous visit, they were
    beaten by people who had been stuck in the jam
    for several days. People were breaking the locks
    on the trucks in search of food and warm
    clothing.
  • Fuel, food, firearms and steel tow-lines are the
    things that are needed most these days on this
    Federal Highway. Oh, and patience!!!
