I've been wondering what the electrical gear in the former communist states look like. I've managed to find a few manufacturers websites. A Polish manufacturer with sales in the whole eastern Europe is found on www.polo.com.pl
It looks just like the stuff used in the west. A closer check shows that it's even made to the same standard.
I also found a Russian manufacturer, www.dek.ru
Since the site is very slow and in Russian, I picked two ads from the site and put on my. Ad for sockets and switches Ad for circuit breakers
Again, it looks just like the gear used in the west.
