Russian Man Takes 'Iceberg Car' for a Drive

A man in the Siberian city of Krasnoyarsk froze his car for five days — as an experiment.

The man later wanted to drive the frozen Zhiguli to the auto repair shop...

But all he got was an 1,800-ruble ($23.60) fine after he was pulled over by the police.

As it turns out, frozen cars aren’t allowed on Russian roads.

… 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.
