For extradition to happen, there is no need for one country to infringe a treaty.

comment How true is the statement “Soviet troops got into Berlin riding American trucks, walking in American boots and using American trains”?
-1 entirely for the bullshit 5th point. The USSR ended the war with much more troops than it had at any point. Also, how one can compare 1943 to 1945? And even in 1943 there was no threat of a collapse, the only such threat was in 1941.

Imperial units from the US gradually replace metric units here in Russia. For example, in height measurement in aviation, in computer standards etc.

@romkyns not only uses, but recently those imperial units were forced on Russia and CIS, who previously used meters.
