Hi Paul,

Both ways are only applicable to cities with blocky structure.
In ex-USSR, architecture of cities is different, and footways / sidewalks
graph is more complicated than a replica of roads for cars, so all the
sidewalks have to be drawn separately.

See, for instance, https://www.openstreetmap.org/#map=16/53.9446/27.7170
