Shut the front door! Okay, don’t but tell me.... Mr Ruben? I am actually studying in Pirogov at the moment, which is the second best, if not the best at the moment in Medicine in Russia! It’s actually possible to apply yourself but the language would be a barrier. The agents are there just to minimize mistakes made by students. It would really be nice to see another Nigerian in my school though. The Ghanaians are dominating at the moment and I need someone to fight the Jollof Wars with. I’ll be waiting... Feel free to text or ask questions and get ready for the language and the cold!!! Winter is literally coming

I got my student visa 13 days ago at the Russian embassy here in Abuja. I came here to share my experience of the entire processes. All of the useful information I gave here was also deleted. So I got angry and relented.

This is not a Russian student visa Q&A thread, it's a diary and should not be derailed with unrelated questions and comments.
If any of you wants to discuss Russian student visa issues or admission then look for the thread here(there are many of them), or create one if the existing ones are inactive for the period of 6 months or so.
|Re: Diary Of A Nigerian Student living In Moscow, Russia. by Kaysalas: 9:18pm On Aug 24, 2018|
justwise:Kindly help point out the Russian student thread(s), as i have not been able to locate any. Thnks

Most people think it is hard, but I think it is one of the easiest visa to process. Getting inside Russia is easy, but if the visitor or student messes up, that is when s(he) understands that getting out of Russia might be tough. Can land one in jail if one is not careful. #ExitVisa. #Registration Lol.
I cannot see your pictures in Red Square and Kremlin. That is a must for you to share here. And try to take one with the parade guards on horses. They are very nice! Also, have you seen the lifeless body of Lenin?
The mall in Red Square is the most expensive one there. HRM and Zara outlets are favorites of average people. Quite lovely. Working class Russians actually prefer English designs to American, and it is why designers like Mexx still sells there, but, I do not think there is any TM Lewin shop there. Maybe it is there now. Of course, American casuals are very common there too. The day I entered Louis Vuitton shop, I had to compose myself not to show any negative expression on my face. In a section, the prices were in US dollars. I saw $150,000 men's suit, and $15,500 ladies' purse/pouch. Funny, the following week, I saw the same pouch with my classmate. And she was the one who told me that there is always a small 24 carat gold piece inside it which qualifies the owner for life waranty. She pays token anytime she wants to get the pouch remodeled to any design of her choice. Hmmmmm! That was a lovely concept. Afterall, it makes so much sense. Poor man won't know. . Parhaps she feels like changing the leather and the color of the pouch every 6 months, one might assume she spends $15,500 bi-annually on different Louis Vuitton pouches
Accomodation is the main negative side of Moscow. The pastor of the church I used to attend was living in $15,000/month rent for just 3-bedrooms apartment in the centre. I cannot remember vividly, but I think the closest underground station is Kitai Gourod (Chinese City). If one moves to 3 stations to the last stations of the underground train lines, that is when one gets around $1,000 per month for a room and living room. It is just advisable for students to find schools that can provide cheap hostels and pay $20 to $100 per month. Even students on scholarship under the Russian government program pay pea-nuts. And they even get stipends from the Russian governement too.
When it comes to furniture, homes, and garden, the best place to shop is IKEA. I read that you said food is expensive. It is not cheap if you buy from stores in the city. I used to go to "Ashan", and they were beginning to have outlets in many parts of the city before I left the city. While I was there, Ashan was providing free ride from the outlets of the underground train stations (metro) to their stores. So, you have nothing to really lose. In comparison to some other parts of Europe, food in Moscow is cheap. With 100 to 200usd per month, one can feed healthily on 3 basic balanced diets daily.
I used to be a regular customer of Rostiks (KFC brand there). Actually. KFC was supposed to have a branch there, but the politics there at that time was too rigid, and they pulled out. McDonalds was succesful, but Rostiks later got a franchise with KFC. When I wanted to eat fried chicken wings or drumsticks, Rostiks was my choice. McDonald's milk shake is additive, and I could not stay away from it. Lol. There are so many extremely expensive coffee shops in the centre. Anyway there are affordable ones too and my favorite coffee is Cappuccino. I rarely take Espresso even till date.
Russia on my mind. Anyone who has lived there, always return to visit. Moscow and St. Petersburg are lovely cities. Forget about US - Russian politics and friction. Americans always get scared when they first arrive, but they always return. Why do we think someone like Steven Seagal is now a dual citizen of the US and Russia, and President Vladimir Putin made him a diplomat (special envoy) of Russia resprenting her to bridge the gap between the two nations.
Nigerians are breaking grounds there. There are very rich Nigerians there. When I say rich, I mean extremely wealthy in $$$$ and not naira. Maybe you send me an email and I may be able to hook you up with someone in the Nigerian community. The present Nigerian community president is my friend. He is a very good christian, and an ex footballer. He is so nice, and he has the anointing of breaking new grounds. These are the people you talk to who can bring out anything positive from the Nigerian embassy.
Lastly, the Nigerian embassy is tricky. You might think "dem no send you" but if you open your eyes and ears very well, that embassy is one of the best Nigerian embassies in Europe. Even other Africans that are neglected by their own countries are saved by the people in the Nigerian embassy. The people there might appear rude and harsh, but believe me, go through the right channel and you will be surprised how much help you can get. I do not know this present ambassador, but when he spoke about the Nigerians stranded in Moscow after the past world cup, I was happy that the Naija helping spirit is till there.
Our boys are always on top of the game at the Friendship University yearly student world football competition. Always good. Boys dey show skills.
Lastly, the Nigerian Independence day celebration is always colorful with our culture. The diplomats are always filled with extreme joy on these days. Two nations that always respect Nigeria are: Liberia and Sierra Leone. These two nations are always grateful to Nigeria. I do not think I heard that these countries sent their ambassadors representative. They always send their Extraordinary-Ambassadors. There are ambassadors, and there are extra-ordinary ambassadors. "Levels dey" If you take note, powerful Nigerians are always sent as Nigerian ambassadors to Russia. Even General Buba Marwa, the ex governor of Lagos State was considered at a time, but late General Timothy Shelpidi was chosen. He was a former ECOMOG general for peace keeping in Liberia and Sierra Leone.
Once again, this is a very good thread which reminds me of those days. I enjoy your thread. Nice one sir.
