Reasons to move to Russia


Russian cuisines are diverse and influenced by Northern and Eastern Europe, Caucasus, Siberia, and Asia. It is common to see fish, poultry, mushrooms, berries, and honey in Russian dishes. Soup plays a key role in Russian meal, and they eat cold and hot soup. For example, Okroshka is a cold soup made from kvass or lime milk, and the main ingredients are two kind of vegetables mixed with cold boiled fish or meat. Shchi is an example for hot soup. It is a Russian style cabbage soup with meat, carrots, and some spicy herbs inside.


Oil, natural gas, metals, and timber account for more than 80% of Russian exports abroad, and Russia main import goods are food and ground transport. Due to hosting for 2018 FIFA World Cup, Russia spent money on related infrastructure in 2017, but the economy is accordingly expected to gain because of consumption and services.

Job Availability

The capital city Moscow has a good opportunity for English speakers or foreigners with specialists skills. The reason is because the Russian biggest companies and international corporations usually set up their headquarters or operations here. There are also a lot of work of bi-lingual expatriates in hotels, restaurants, and some tourism associated jobs

Cost of Living

Prices are affordable in Russia. fruits like apples, oranges, and bananas are half price of Australia’s. Renting an apartment could be 60% cheaper than in Australia, no matter it is in or outside the city centre.
