According to RIA Novosti, the highest wages in Russia are in Salekhard, Yuzhno-Sakhalinsk, Moscow, Anadyr, Khanty-Mansiysk, Surgut, St. Petersburg, Magadan, Tyumen, and Murmansk. Northern cities dominate the top because of extraction of mineral resources there. The lowest wages are in such southern cities as Elista, Vladikavkaz, and Nalchik. 25-year-old Russian Daniil Medvedev won the US Open tennis championship by beating the first racket of the world Serb Novak Djokovic (6:4, 6:4, 6:4).

Paul asks: Is 50,000 rubles a good Christmas gift and what could you buy
Expert's answer:
Yes, this is a relatively large amount for the average Russian citizen, exceeding the monthly income in most cases (November, 2021). However, be careful and do not send any such gifts until you are absolutely sure that this is a real person (this requires a real meeting or at least numerous online talks with a webcam turned on).
