Welcome to European Tribune. It's gone a bit quiet around here these days, but it's still going.
Keep in mind that opening under the Putin Admin doesn't mean the projects weren't started under Yeltsin.  I don't know that the av. time it takes to finish an extension is, but work on the stop after Prazhskaya, which opened in 2000, was underway in 1995.  Likewise, if a line opened in 1992, I'm sure it was started back in the USSR...

Interesting question about who funds it.  In Chicago everyone is always screaming because the CTA is a mess, but the funds come from the state and federal government, which don't seem to grasp how important it is to the city...
