    There was an article about it on
    Tesla owners built charging stations in Russia to make it from Europe to FIFA World Cup in Moscow . Finally managed to make a translated video. I thought it could be interesting for EV commnity abroad.

    Here is a video description:

    Till June 2018 electric cars owners willing to travel on their vehicles from Moscow to Europe or vice versa faced a major obstacle - there were absolutely no public chargers available on the route. On the way from Moscow, the nearest charger was located in Belarus on the distance of over 500 km (310 miles), making it impossible to get there on electric vehicle.

    Though, June 11th, 2018, is the day when the road between Moscow and Europe is finally approachable for electric cars owners - we deployed 22 kW EV charging stations in Vyazma and Smolensk. While going from Moscow to Europe, the first charger is located in Vyazma (230 km / 143 miles from Moscow), and the second one in Smolensk (400 km / 248 miles). Next charge may be performed in Belarus with a wide network of chargers located there.

    All charging stations deployed are absolutely free for EV drivers.

    What a star. Awesome job getting those chargers installed at the hotels. The thought that one could drive across Europe in a Tesla and reach all the way, easily, to Moscow is fantastic.

    I assume you made it back in time to feed the kitty!

    I hope it sees more use.
