Horrendous.

It looks like Mother Russia still has a firm hand in the choice of roadsigns. Take a look at the showcase of the Russian Group of children's signs.
Or is it perhaps nostalgia of the former members of the fede­ration who are afflicted with an all too strong memory? After all, we know that roadsigns often reflect undercurrents in society (e.g. Cambodia).
