    as an outsider, I don't see anyone on horizon. Those of so-called opposition are laughable and woudn't get supported by many.
    Putin just announced he would go for 2018 elections,and, he will lead for at least a term of 6 additional years.

  • How to travel in Europe as a gap year for cheap?

    Best answer: A. Italy, Germany, Switzerland and Poland are perfectly safe. Safer than America for sure. Russia is dangerous though. If you go to Russia, it's complicated with the visas and accommodation and I highly suggest you don't go to any bars don't stay ina a cheap motel / hostel, and stay alert at night. If you're white and you don't draw undue attention and you stay in the wealthier areas, you'll likely be fine, but it is certainly a dangerous place. Also, if you're not white - don't go. Just don't.

    B. Amersterdam is also safer than America. Murder can happen anywhere and is more likely to happen in America. Best to stay away from hard chemical drugs, but weed never hurt anyone.

    C. Backpackers that travel Europe or elsewhere on the cheap use hostels, not motels. Check them out online. Personally, I don't like sharing rooms with smelly hippies, so I used to pay a bit more for a single room at hostels. Very cheap. Also, check here about getting a Eurorail pass for travelling to the different countries. They give discounts to students: https://www.eurail.com/en/eurail-passes/...

    D. Just my opinion here, but Switzerland is boring. There's nothing of interest. You'll see all the same architecture in France and Germany. I'd pass on Switzerland and opt for somewhere a little different. Czech is very fun. Ireland would give you a different feel. You're right on with Poland, it's great. Spend your time in Krakow. There's a bar in the dungeon of the 500 year old castle downtown called "Carpe Diem". Check that out. Fun times.

    E. If you want to make some money as you travel, you can easily work for a week and move on by picking grapes in France. Backpackers commonly do this. Quick cash. Meet people.

    F. One last thing - don't bring the bedroom and the kitchen sink with you. Just one medium sized backpack. If it doesn't fit in there, don't bring it. I see too many kids trying to haul around an apartment on their back and one on the front. It'll be miserable to carry all that around all the time.

  • Why do Americans worry so much about safety when asking about travelling in Europe? Do they not know America is much more dangerous?

    Best answer: I agree- I never understand when they ask about being "safe". The only thing is that Americans are not used to protecting themselves against pickpockets. Our thieves don't have skills- they just stick a gun in your face and demand your money.

  • HOW do you move to Russia from the U.S.?

    Best answer: The only negative is money. You won't coin $100,000 yearly in Russia. But internet is $3-4, electricity is $3-5, labor is cheap. We are 750 miles from Moscow and 100 rubles will get a taxi most anywhere in town. Airport to train station, 1 - 1 1/2 hours by taxi in Moscow is $16-17. Used to we took the bus,... show more

We are 750 miles from Moscow and 100 rubles will get a taxi most anywhere in town. Airport to train station, 1 - 1 1/2 hours by taxi in Moscow is $16-17. Used to we took the bus, $0.95.
    Russia is wonderful, a lot different than USA. Don't think of designer clothes, handbags, etc. Most are Chinese copies. MK bag for $7 but my Russian wife could care less. All the designers are not so popular anyway.
    I am trying to get a dacha myself. $20K separates me from my 1/2 acre (or so) and the house MAY be unlivable. I can have a house built for less than $30k MORE. A flat is $19,800 for a two room. Living room and bedroom. Kitchen, toilet and bath are there, but not called "rooms".
    Food is excellent. Fresh, smoked, canned meats are aplenty. Fish, from shrimp to filets to live, just-caught gaping carp can be bought anytime. New Year makes the shops look like a 10 day hurricane is coming as not water, but all food is stripped from the shops. It is the party and shopping orgy Americans have made Christmas into. Here, Christmas is a HOLY day where we go to church Jan 6 at 10 or 11pm (22.00 or 23.00) and stay until 2 or 3 am. Easter, too.
    Bread is unbelievable. Once I counted over 65 different breads in one store.
    So IF you can move, that is some of what you are moving to. Oh, yes. Snow covers the ground from Nov to Mid April. When it melts away, you work the dirt at the dacha to plant tomatoes, peppers, potatoes, carrots, flowers, etc. Tomatoes you start in the window in March or so and put them out in June and HOPE for no freeze! (cover them...)
    Final thought... If you have marketable skills, physics and engineering, Moscow or some industrial city may have a need for you. THAT can make the imminent marriage unnecessary to live here. Contact Russian companies, Russian Railroads, Aeroflot, Avtovaz, Severstal, Norilsk Nickel, many hydroelectric plants Rus hydro, etc with your skills and degree. Perhaps one will invite you to work here. Many are State Owned facilities.
    EDIT working for multi-national corporations looking to hire native speakers. NGO's or Russian companies that operate in energy, finance and construction sectors may also present opportunities.
