Sapsans attacked by vandals

Sapsans attacked by vandals
Travel to Russia by train

The high-speed Sapsan trains running between Moscow and St. Petersburg for already 4 months regularly suffer from acts of vandalism committed by the people living in the settlements along the railway. They break the windows in the trains with stones and lumps of ice, leave stones on the metals and do other things unfriendly towards the Sapsans.
      The casus belli for such a guerilla war in not only the hate of the poor to the rich (the local public is rather poor, because all the ambitious persons move to Moscow or St. Petersburg). The main reason is that some suburban trains and budget passenger trains were cancelled after Sapsans had begun running and then the number of high-speed trains was increased. The people can not let themselves tickets for Sapsans, but they can work in Moscow living in one of the suburban settlements, where Sapsans do not even stop over. And the people want some guarantees that they would be able to get home after work, because there are many enough trains.
      The second pretense is that the extra Sapsan trains will run during the May holidays and not the budget ones.
      It is still unknown why they protest in a way like they do.
      Book tickets for all the Russian trains, without leaving our site.
