Video: Time Magazine Travels from St. Petersburg to Moscow

Following the path of Alexander Radishchev (unlike Grigory Pasko’s journeys in the footsteps of Venedikt Erofeyev), a senior editor from Time Magazine sets out in a Lada hatchback with a non-drinking driver to see the “real Russia” – finding himself in strange villages, hunting for good apples, and harassed by bureaucracy. It’s quite an apolitical little video diary – which seems harder and harder to achieve in Russia these days. Watch it here.
