Judy asks: Is unsweetened almond milk available in Murmansk?
I haven't found any offers of this quite unusual for Russia food product in Murmansk. Although there are online shops selling it in Moscow (for example, this one

to translate sites from Russian.
Ashmeet asks: I'm going to be coming to Russia in February for an exchange programme to work in a hospital. Is February a good month to have a social life in Russia even despite of the cold weather?
In winter there are definitely less opportunities, outdoor recreation is limited except for skiing, snowboarding. People spend most of their time indoors. Social life mostly takes place in cafes, night clubs, movie theaters, concerts, sports events, theaters, museums, etc. So if you want, you can always find something to do if you live in a city and not a small town.

Callum asks: I am going to Moscow in August and have 82434 Rubles. I was wondering if that would be enough for 2017.
Today, the usual salary in Moscow is about 50,000-60,000 Rubles per month, so this sum will be enough to live in the city for some time. If you mean a monthly salary of this size, then it is somewhat higher than the average salary.

Charlie asks: Can a 1,000 ruble note of 1995 still be exchanged?
You can't exchange this banknote. Its nominal value is only 1 Ruble today. Although its collectible value is about 200-300 Rubles or 3-5 USD. So I think that you should just keep it as a nice souvenir.
