Russians Caught Trying to Cross Bridge in Cardboard Bus

Youtube

When in doubt, pretend to be a bus.

A video posted Monday on YouTube showed four pairs of legs sticking out of a cardboard yellow bus navigating traffic on Zolotoy Bridge in the Far East port city of Vladivostok. The bridge, which was built in preparation for an Asia-Pacific Economic Cooperation summit in 2012, has been closed for pedestrian traffic following inspections since 2015.

“Where did they come from?” a young woman’s voice behind the camera is heard saying and giggling. “This is beautiful, it’s art.”

A traffic police officer is seen “pulling over” the makeshift vehicle and forcing it to make a “U-turn.”

“Why are they kicking them out?” the voice says as the traffic officer escorts the “bus drivers.”

… we have a small favor to ask. As you may have heard, The Moscow Times, an independent news source for over 30 years, has been unjustly branded as a "foreign agent" by the Russian government. This blatant attempt to silence our voice is a direct assault on the integrity of journalism and the values we hold dear.

We, the journalists of The Moscow Times, refuse to be silenced. Our commitment to providing accurate and unbiased reporting on Russia remains unshaken. But we need your help to continue our critical mission.
