USSR was a one-time super power, and after it scattered into a cluster of countries, Russia went from Hero to Zero. Things have improved over the years but the struggle yields sights that are terribly amusing.
Here's one exceptional example- A Lada which serves dual purpose- As a family car in the weekends and as a cargo hauler in the weekdays. Load em' up until the inside of the wheel arch touches the tyre. You know, it can take more, don't you Putin ? :D
