I don't understand the fascination with Russia - my guess is you'd get tired of it after a year or two and want to leave. I know a number that moved there, the only ones still there basically fucked up to the point where they're stuck there and couldn't leave if they wanted to.
The question I always ask, of people living abroad or wanting to live abroad, is how is your life any better, or how will it be any better than your life where you're living now. I'm yet to receive a good answer. Most people, prior to leaving the west, talk like you do.
Regardless, you could a hell of a lot better than Russia.
