Winter has arrived with a bang in parts of Russia.
Heavy snowfall in and around Moscow has created some major headaches for Russian drivers and some major traffic jams.
Thousands of cars and trucks were caught in a three-day whiteout along a Russian highway we want you to name.
It’s the federal highway that links Moscow and St. Petersburg and continues on to the border with Finland.
Trucks use the two lane highway to carry cargo back and forth between Russia’s two largest cities. That came to a halt over the past weekend as sections of the highway were backed up for more than a hundred miles due to the heavy snow and whiteout conditions.
Now some disgruntled drivers are pointing the finger at the Russian government. They want to know why there aren’t better snow plowing and emergency services for stranded drivers on one of Russia’s most heavily used roads.
Can you name this highway?
Agents France Press reporter Maria Antonova in Moscow tells The World that severe winter conditions shut down some remote stretches of M10 leaving thousands of motorists out in the cold for days.
