Russian Post gets quite a few gripes… all too often, letters and parcels are delivered late, if not lost. Meanwhile, the volume of shipments constantly increases, especially with the end of summer and the approach of the New Year holidays. in an interview with the Prime news service correspondent Tatiana Belyakova, Aleksandr Timofeyev, the head of Organisation for Production Processes for Russian Post, told how the post office is preparing for the “high” season, the problems this causes, and how they plan to address them.

Editor’s Note:

In Russia, the post office still has a monopoly on parcel post… that’s as it should be. UPS and FedEx are commercial buccaneers… we need to close them down. You see, these commercial bloodsuckers only deliver to “profitable” areas. Previously, the US Post Office used profits from “profitable” areas to subsidise delivery service to more inaccessible regions. Nowadays, those monies are going into the pockets of greedy soulless and godless investors, not to help the common good. That’s why we need to shut down UPS and FedEx and return parcel delivery to the Post Office… they’re leeches on society and sucking out money that doesn’t belong to McMansion filth. It’s quite that simple…
