As a matter of fact, Russia is a 'winter country'. So, for the aviation to function normally during winter it means a great deal of 'winter operation extras' such as de-icing, anti-icing, snow removal, and so on.

I took this short video on one of the gray February's mornings in 2004 (Aeroflot still had A-310s, and this one was probably 'one of the very last ones' in the company's fleet), as we sat on the tarmac at the Sheremetyevo airport, ourselves waiting for de-ice to be completed on our Tu-154 bound to Istanbul, Turkey.
