Hi! I need help. I'm looking for a free site where I can put a free listing in Russia, Arab countries and China selling an activity / property in Europe. It should be in English, German or French since I don't speak any Arab, Chinese or Russian. Thank you.

BrokenArrows initially posted:
I am considering taking a job in Moscow and i need to calculate my monthly expenses so i know what salary i need to ask for. As far as im aware the current income tax rate is 13%. Are there any other deductions that are made on a persons salary?
bobrey replied on August 25, 2015 with:
I believe all additional taxes are borne by the employer.
BrokenArrows replied on August 20, 2015 with:
Yes I'm aware of the income tax deduction. I want to know if there is anything else. For example in England we have Income Tax and National Insurance which get automatically deducted by the employer

I just wanted to post, even though you all have your smart phones and know. CNN and a lot of the western media keeps bashing Russia, "no one believes this" except the dopes and uneducated! We Russia fans watch RT near Chicago, and Germany & France are in Russias cornet, the warlords in the U.S. military keep puring gas on the fire.

Please feel free to either post a comment or PM me. I have a million questions but no answers. I need the straight dope from someone who has already done it. The word from the man (or woman) on the street as they say here. My plan is to move to Russia by the end of the year but I don't have a clue where to start, what forms I need. Do I need a police clearance as is required by some other countries? Is there a required amount of money I would need to deposit in a bank in Russia? How long can I stay, can I extend my initial visa after my arrival or will I have to hop over the border every 30 days or ____ fill in the blank? Can I ever become a legal resident? Can I buy property? See? So many questions that only a person who has actually made the move from Un-Amerika to Russia.

Bobrey, I wasn't trying to pick fights with anyone, I simply tried to correct what I felt was an error in your logic. Sorry if that made you uncomfortable. I'd like to ask everyone to limit posts here on this thread to the topic of the thread: How to relocate from the US to Russia. Any tips you can give, things to watch out for, things to make sure you get done before leaving America, etc., would be most welcome and most appreciated. Also, if anyone has a recommendation for where to live, how to buy property or a house the correct way (keeping it legal while covering my posterior from possible ripoffs or someone coming back and either demanding more money or claiming title to the property, etc). Thanks all!

Really? You’re just trying to pick a fight now. How does any media company support itself, outside of government support? That’s right through ads. That was one of the things that Putin did to destroy independent cable channels. He banned them from running ads. Please explain to me your idea of a legitimate media source and how it supports itself? And why is it now owned by a Oligarch? Yes that’s right because of new legislation capping foreign ownership at 20%. New flash oligarchs own lots of stuff in Russia. Why is this a surprise. How is this different than Ted Turner or Rupport Murdoch? Rich people have lots of special interests so why not have a mouth piece to get your point across. I don’t know why you would go on as your points really don’t have much of a point in my opinion. The Moscow Times would have been shutdown a long time ago if it were in Russian. Kommersants stake is going to a Oligarch that will have to tow the Kremlin line. Sling away. But the simple fact is I have a much stronger basis than you. PS – If you’re right and I’m wrong why is Russian ranked 152 out of 180 with regards to world press freedom index. https://index.rsf.org/#!/

Can you be my Russian language tutor? If you are a native Russian. I prefer (I learn better from) a female instructor. You can be any age 18 to 99. My plan is to move to Russia before the end of this year and every time I try to learn Russian on my own it just doesn't stick. That's why a tutor seems like what I need. Perhaps you could also help me learn about the culture, things not to say and not to do, and how to tell a taxi driver where I need to go. It doesn't matter really. Any help you can give me would be good.

Wiliams commented on the Expat Report Review of International School of Moscow in Moscow, Russia
Review-of-International School of Moscow
How would you describe the facilities at this school? What extra-curricular activities are available?
Modern, spacious, clean - where specialist facilities are not available, good use is made of local private and municipal amenities.

Within the school day: Music, sport, choir, drama, dance

After school activities (free if within the premises): Drama, Art, Bowling, Swimming, Football, Martial arts, origami (dpendent on teachers' skills)

The school excels in music and drama. The quality of the class assemblies are second to none and teachers clearly work in partnership to produce them. Children are encouraged to create and deliver their own work. (Continue)

Our daughter is now in Year 9. When anyone asks her what are her favorite things about studying at BIS, she can never really pick out what they are because the simple fact is, she loves her school, she loves all of the subjects she studies at school. BISM is the school that can help develop our daughter into become a diverse, adaptable, caring, independent and well balanced individual.
Guliveris replied recently with:
What we have appreciated most at BIS #1 is the warm and friendly atmosphere, the friendly pupils and teachers and the open relationship between teachers and pupils and parents. Its a pleasure to join the school with a positive way of doing.

this place is terrible for me. my family is all slime and I am always being harrassed by someone or some elctronic junk. I would like to live in Russa and never speak english again
bobrey replied most recently with:
Have you ever been to Russia? I lived there for 12 years. I loved the people and the culture but their leadership is a train wreck. If you dont speak very good russian forget any job but engilsh teacher. Other jobs are also getting crushed even for people with great credentials. It seems every month more and more lifers are hitting the exit. Lets not forget Americans are fairly hated there at the moment.

Each place has its own good and bad, and each of us determines what is tiring and what is refreshing. May you get your wishes.
