Well, something does cause them to be very different for example for the
production version of the validator and the development one, compare the source
listings.  Here's what I see right now:

http://validator.w3.org/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fauto.yandex.ru%2F;ss=1
* The first optgroup is empty
* The second optgroup has options Audi, BMW, Cadillac, ...

http://qa-dev.w3.org/wmvs/HEAD/check?uri=http%3A%2F%2Fauto.yandex.ru%2F;ss=1
* The first optgroup has options LADA, GAZ, ERAZ, ...
* The second optgroup has options AC, ACURA, ALFA_ROMEO, ALPINA, ...

Perhaps the site serves different versions based on where it is fetched (GeoIP
or something?).  There's still no evidence that this would be a validator
problem (it correctly marks the empty optgroup as invalid), so re-closing as
invalid.
