If you decide to go abroad by car, you need to clarify what documents you may need to enter a particular country. The standard set necessarily includes documents that confirm your ownership of the vehicle, while it is best to have the PTS with you. You will also need to take your driver's license with you. In the event that it was done before 2011, you will need to obtain a special international driver's license, which is required in a number of European countries, this can be done at the local MREO.
Another document, without which you cannot travel abroad, is an international OSAGO for your vehicle, which can be purchased at any insurance organization. It is best to call several companies in advance and find suitable conditions for the cost of insurance. You will also need to take a diagnostic card with you, which confirms that the vehicle has passed MOT.
Of course, the driver must also have the relevant documents with him - a Russian passport, an international passport, a visa, etc. The register of all necessary documents should also be clarified based on the list of those countries in which you plan to visit. So, for example, for a trip to Ukraine, only a Russian passport will be enough, but in European countries this will not be enough. It is imperative that all documents be translated into English and copies certified by a notary, they can be useful in case of emergency.

Route "E95" "St. Petersburg-Merzifon" will lead you to Ukraine, Belarus and Turkey, by route "AN7" "Yekaterinburg-Karachi" you can go to Kazakhstan, Kyrgyzstan, Uzbekistan, Tajikistan, Afghanistan and Pakistan.
