That’s the question that 43-year-old Eugene Yakut is asking by showing the world a side of Russia’s capital city that most have never seen. The 43-year-old is one of Moscow’s estimated 50,000 homeless denizens and for the past five years, he’s been using his street smarts to survive in the densely populated city of 12 million. Now, he’s revealing how he does it with a series of YouTube videos, in which he describes himself as a “bum blogger.”
