BBC video on Vladivosok
Vladivostok BBC [have no clue how to embed this player into my blog :(]
Here is one video made by BBC about Vladivostok.
IT is rather short and does not really reflect many aspects of the city, but kinda leaves a nice impression.
Please note: not everyone drinks vodka in Russia and sure thing not everyone hates the West. But I would strongly agree with the people in the video saying that we need a stronger local government. Not every initiative should come from Moscow. Many local issues should be resolved on a local level and local authorities should have more independence in their actions.
