Questions and answers:

Alexander asks: If I have 4,200 RUB will it be a lot in Russia or it is normal?
Expert's answer:
This is a relatively small amount (about $ 60). The majority of working people in Russia outside of Moscow earn about 25-30 thousand rubles a month.
Maverick asks: Is 20,000 rub a good salary in Russia (without rent)? I mean if we include things like food, travel, entertainment, etc.
Expert's answer:
It depends a lot on the specific region. In Moscow and St. Petersburg, this is a small salary. In most other regions of Russia, this is slightly below the average salary, enough for basic food, utilities, and transport. If you don't need to pay for accommodation, it will be enough to live a relatively normal life in provincial Russia.
