Below is a link to a somewhat satirical article on flying in Russia today. Parts of it are meant as a rude joke or to elicit a reaction, and some parts are quite true (the internet cafe at Sheremetyevo for instance), and still others are exaggerations or simply untrue. Anyway, I didn't write it!
Having flown in Russia relatively recently, a fair amount, I can attest to some of the absurdities, and there is a very real problem with the (lack) of safety culture on the part of some sectors of aviation.
