(ROUGH CUT ONLY - NO REPORTER NARRATION) Spring became an increasingly distant prospect for Russians as Moscow was hit by yet another snowfall on Monday (March 25), causing traffic jams and flight disruptions. Weather forecasters said that a third of the monthly March snow average fell on Moscow in just 24 hours. Snow caused several dozen flights from Moscow airports to be delayed, while the Russian capital became paralysed in huge traffic jams. More than 15,000 snow ploughs and tractors were dispatched on Moscow streets but huge snow piles were still seen even in central Moscow, with Red Square and the Kremlin all covered in snow. The snowfall was expected to become even heavier by nightfall.
