Austeen007, this group is an eye opener. Do you have any clue on when Russia will likely allow international students that are not from CIS countries to come over?
There has been restrictions on the issuance of visa
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by BelieverDE: 1:39pm On Sep 22|
Thanks Austeen007. The truth about Russia is really an eye opener.
Could you please tell us about the "little crime" that can land someone in prison? I heard greeting people the Nigerian way (raising you hand in the air) is prohibited in Germany because it's similar to the way Hitler greets.
In the UAE you can't stare at a woman. There are a lot of "little crimes" an individual must know. Could you please let us know "little crime" which could be strange to a Non-European?

YungLasaint:Any response on this?
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by IchBinBrait(m): 5:20pm On Sep 22|
To be frank, I am among the Nigerians who don't fancy Russia... Well maybe because of the Western propaganda. The way the country is being portrayed (war, weapons, bombs, racism, hostility and so on) has made some of us say we would never get close to Russia not even if they are dashing visas.
Ahhh internet ehnn,, negativity overshadows positivity I'm glad there are prosperous Nigerians (like you and others who have commented so far) over there.
Now my mentality has changed!

|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by YungLasaint(m): 6:09pm On Sep 22|
[color=#006600][/color] Austeen007 I'm suggesting if you can create another thread for those that are interested in learning Russian as it's done with other languages on NL.

One they do i will update on my blog and also on this thread. But if you want a quick update you can sub to my blog you'll be notified ASAP.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 9:30pm On Sep 23|
When i first came to Russia i was greeting almost everybody i came by the Nigerian way.
Three (3) out of 10 would respond, some will peronally approach you and discuss with you and ask to take a photo with you. Individual difference is applied.
But even if a Russian don't answer you greeting, they'll definitely stop to help you when you ask for help.
You'll be surprised that a person who didn't answer your greeting is offering you extreme help like when you're trying to find your way out of the underground metro. A russianman will leave where he's going to and make sure you find your way out.
And nexttime when he see's you he'll be the one to greet you first.
So i asked my woman why is it that Russians do not greet themselves? She said; they do greet, but only who they know. or by coincidence. And i also realized to smile at a Russian is a taboo.
They believe its crazy to smile at someone you don't know, and for what reason are you smilling? do you have anything fishy? But when you get to Know them you'll smile and laugh as you want.
Though this is also common in Nigeria. If someone i do not know smiles at me i'd think the person is crazy or have some fishy plans against me.
So i began to adopt with the Russian lifestyle. But out 147million Russians you'll find many that will smile at you, talk with you because of the uniqueness of your skin colour.
I have been approached by many of them who where arguing that i'm afro-russian, American or African, so they approached me and spoke in Russian Language "Ti Ruskaya Chilovekam, Amerikanski ili Afrikanse?"
I replied African. They shoke my hands and said they were arguing and they want to know where i came from.
Unlike, in Dubai where you can't talk or touch their women, in Russia you're free to talk to any women, date them, and marry them. There isn't any restriction on communicating with their women.
In Russia you're free to wave to someone you know or anybody you feel like that shows the interest.
Advice: Don't make loud greetings, shouting and hailing in the metro LOL! people will look at you as noisy and weird. But this isn't general. individual difference applies.
To make noice it is adviceable when and where it is necessary. Places like on Picnic, and Night clubs.
Making Noise at home by 10:00 PM is prohibited in Russia. By that time people are back from work and they should be sleeping. Most Nigerian Newbees in Russia makes such mistakes often. Even if you're watching TV by then , you have to lower to the volume to a level it can't disturb the sleeping neigbours.
What will land you in jail in Russia isn't from making noooooooooise LOL!
But drug dealing, Raping, having sex with an underage girl, burglary, scams, robbery, terrorism, illegal arm possessions, killing.
Having a church and taking tithe and monies from Russians will get the FSB knocking at your door.
Church will only raise money if they're giving it to charity in places that is hit by natural disasters.
PASTOR NO DEY COLLECT MONEY FROM CONGRGATION USE AM BUY JET FOR RUSSIA>THATS THE REASON NIGERIAN PASTOR DON"T HAVE THEIR CHURCH BRANCHES IN RUSSIA LOL!
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 9:33pm On Sep 23|
Start from PREVIET means Hello or Hi
Russia is the 7th most spokes language in the world.
The ist spoken language in space and presently the 2nd spoken language in space after English.
So knowing Russian Language is a big Plus.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 9:35pm On Sep 23|
I will do that on my Youtube channel soon as time goes on
Thanks for the suggestion. BLAGADAREU
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by iamajiiii: 9:02am On Sep 24|
what can you say about Russia girls
is there any chance someone can get marry to Muslim russia girl
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 9:26am On Sep 24|
Russia is a circular country there are mosques and churches. But don't expect to see 110 churches or mosques in one street. Where i lived before their is a Mosque close to their. and the guys I lived with who're are Muslims often pray their on Fridays.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 9:26am On Sep 24|
If you're a Muslim, you can marry Russian Muslim gilrs. It's simple
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 10:21am On Sep 24|
When you travel to a country, you contribute to their Econony immensely. The westerner knows this simple Economics. So they use propaganda to tell you and i evil things about Russia so we wont go their which will help the work force.
When it comes to Military, BoMB, Nuclear weapons Russia has the best of it. But does America not have also?
The war America Started in Vietnam didn't you here about it?
The 12 years war America has been fighting in the east because of the refusal of East to allow passage of oil pipleline from Qatar to Turkey. Obama started the war. Turkey is a NATO MEMBER NOTE THAT.
Are we not seeing all the racists videos coming out of America? White people killing black people? BLACK PEOPLE PROTESTING.
Are we not seeing the protests going on in America tagged the BLM?
All these evil things that has been happening in America for over 250 years but we chose to read and believe propaganda about Russia and turn a blind eye to Racism in the UK, and America cum France?
Nigeria and Africa as a whole is what it is today because America and the UK, France and Germany used their Economic tools to kill Nigeria for their own benefits.
Don't Forget it was Russia that Built Africa's first telecommunications satelight that enables you and i to make calls. Before then Africa was Hiring it For billionos of doolar per year. Gadaffi said Africa has to stop hiring and build hers. He paid almost 80% of th money while other Africa state contributed the remaining 20%.
Germany, France, UK , America Sat in Berlin and planned the elimination of Gaddafi. And yet use propaganda to tell you and i Gaddafi was a traitor and a tyrant.
Look at Libya today all they are getting for free is gone. Now they are travelling through the ned sea to Europe, where Germany, france, and co uses them to work in a farm. isn't that indirect or systeic slavery?
Why are we not afraid of those that is killing us?
Well, thanks web technology that the world is now a global world we now know who the real racists and war mongers are.
They ones that publish propaganda about others and they ones doing the worse.
If you read what the west has published about you and i as an Africans you'll cry in pains for the rest of your life.
The only reason the west wants to use propaganda to destroy Russia is because they can't do it through war. Russia isn't a country you show guns and swords, they have seen that and experienced war mre than any country on earth. But if you want it they will show you they invented the deadliest machine. AK 47 named after the inventor Mikhail Kalashnikov. and even have more.
So since the west can't bully Russia , They are using the media to decieve you and I into believing that Russia isn't a place to travel to as African.
The truth i will tell you is that Africans and Nigerians are quietly making a living here. And many of us are already Russian citizens.
If they are racists why give citizenship to a black person like you and I?
If they are racist, why would a black man reach the top military level in Russia?
If they are Racist why is an Igbo girl representing Russia in the Olympics, and Russians are happy about her. The Russians that had the opportunity to learn from her commended that she is awesome and good at the swirling game?
If they are racist why would they sit together with me in a metro?
If they are racist why would they offer to drink beer with me?
If they are racist why would they say I'm smart?
If they are racist why would they kiss an African like me? Even after all the western propaganda about Africans being naturally afflicated with deadly disease. But yet i get a hug, kiss, flowers, gifts, tick socks for the winter as gift even books to read in other to help me learn Russian language quickly.
If they are racist why would they border to ask my namne, and if my country is warm?
If they are racist why would any of thm ask me if i love Russia more than my country?
If they are racist an old women would not walk up to me and my Russian wife and tell us that we look beautiful and should marry and live together.
If they are rascists why would a very old woman , the grand mother to my wife still remember my name, even in her sick bed she remembers my name.
On any day i didn't go with my wife to see her at the old peoples homes, she often asks after me, and whenver she sees me she give me a thumbs up with a thousand smile dazzling off her face.
If they are racist why would any of them ask to take a photo with me all happy faces?
If they are racist why would a taxi driver buy a packet of Abricoss fruits and hand it to me as a welcome gift to Russia?
If they are racist why would a Russian man drive you to your address and refuse taking the money and said he only helped me and needs not to take money?
If they are racist why would they even eat my Nigerian Egwusi soup, Yam and tomato suace? and after that they want to visit Nigeria
If they are racists, why did i see a handfull of Russians taking visa from the Nigerian Embssy in Moscow to visit Nigeria w=beacuse we have a hot weather.
Finally, when you move to a country for the first time, Your best mistake you would likely be to expect everyone to love or like you. Build your friends , be happy with them and forget others. You can aswell meet new like-minded friends and add them to your clique.
They are bad people everywhere these days.
But Russia isn't near to what the western propaganda suggests to you and I.
Thanks for readign my points

This thread has really been an eye opener. Most time we don't need to listen to what the media are saying.
If I have the will power I would leave naija asap.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by YungLasaint(m): 2:13pm On Sep 24|
Leave the west with their propoganda. Russians are peaceful and helpful and why won't I marry there when their women are more beautiful and loving than some western women and there are not after your money.
The rate of divorce in the west makes me hate it.
I just pray I secure admission here.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by YungLasaint(m): 2:25pm On Sep 24|
God bless you @OP I still have questions base on study route.
How much can one budget when coming for studies and can I get a job the first year to support myself?
I can still be working with my Nigerian client bah?
How is the IT sector there in terms of getting hired as a developer?
From the Study In Russia website the info I saw is that the govt scholarship is very competitive. Do you have any advice about this?
Which airline is more affordable and which city is quite affordable?
When coming to Russia what and what should we carry and not carry?
How is their immigration procedures?
Expecting a quick response from. Thank you

I swr.. their ladies are damn beautiful .. peaceful and loving..
American ladies loves money like mad..... it's in there blood,
That's why the high rate of divorce.. no money Is equal to divorce..
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 3:56pm On Sep 24|
You can study in St. Petersburg, Moscow, Dolgaprudny, Chelabynsk, Obininsk.
The lowest school fee i have seen in Russian Universities is around 75,000 rubles but this is dependent on the course of choice and the institution you wish to study in.
When i went to Russia i flew Emirate, but the agent that booked the flight swindled me of 520k naira, untill i came to Russia and saw my Russian woman booking flights. There i saw how Nigerian agents have been swindling Nigerians like me.
You can budget atleast 350k naira or little more above for flight, to and fro. And BTA of 1000 dollars or above but in general if you're bring up to 10 thousand dollars into Russia you must present it to the Russian immigration officers at the entrance to be cleared. If the liquid money exceeds 10k USD it is condidered money Laundry.
You can get a job in Russia in your first year. The new law allows students to work without permit. But if the new law doesn't apply strongly you can seek a working permit from your institution and work in the schools organization or affiliates.
The IT sector in Russia is very advanced and you need to have a proper skills which includes knowing and speaking Russian. Though you could be lucky, if you're smart enough to device a survival strategy to compete.
You can still work with your Nigerian clients, the world is globe now, you can connect and work with your clients from any part of the world right from your computer.
I myself designs website for my Nigerian clients while living in Russia. So you can as well do better by using the cheap internet and the uniterupted electricity supply to build and achieve your goals.
In regard to the Russian scholarship, their's a Quota which everyone who wish to study in Russia have to compete. I think Russia gave Nigeria about 2-5% of the quota last i checked. I may be wrong with the figures of % percentage, but i know their's a quota for Nigerian nationals. But you must go through competition.
"which airline is cheaper?" i wouldn't be able to lay emphasies on the cost flight bookings. It depends on some factors, like your lugages, the class, and the type of airline and the routes and stops. I flew Emirate and only had a wonderful stop at the Dubai airport, from which we exchanged to another emirate airline headed to Moscow it was a almost a 6hour flight from Dubai to Domododevo airport in Moscow.
When coming to Russia dont carry with you Cocaine, cannabis, SK, if you;re carrying any drugs or syrup that contains codeine, ephedrine or any other opium extract, it must be accompanied by a notable doctors prescriptions.
Don't bring in Porn Movies recorded on a CD or DVD, Guns, Military Knives or gadgets related to the military.
You can come with your red oil, egwusi, ogbono, garri, dried fish, stock fish, etc. You only have to deal with the Nigeria's greedy immigration officers that will share your oil and Egwusi into 2 and tell you it is too much to be taken abroad, or accuse you of going to sell it in Russia.
God knows they'll take it home and make soup with it.
Their Immigration procedure? Please put this question properly so i'd understand what exact answers you seek in this category.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 3:57pm On Sep 24|
Russian woman are, educated, Culturally oriented and they understand what is it being a woman
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 4:08pm On Sep 24|
Now people don't read about a country from western media, they read from people who have really travelled to this countries, lived their for a while and can write their experiences and trouble and how to avoid them.
Thats why we have what is called travel bloggers.
and the latest suggestion now is that to know about a country don't use google, because google ranks thw westerns propaganda on the ist 10 to 20 pages of it search to make people believe their political propaganda.
So to know more about Russia any other country ask people who lives in the country and willing tell you the truth, the bad, and their survival tips.
I know a couple friedns that visited Russia during the world cup they were like wow! Wow!! WoW!!! so the west has been lying to us? Oh my God!
Today they are waiting for the covid-19 to clear so they can apply for student permit to visit Russia again because they came and saw something different from what the western propaganda have been suggesting for years.
The wordl is global now, they western propaganda is futile now.
Travelling is Education My father will often say. If i havent travelled to Russia i'd have sat down in Nigeria reading the ist 10 pages of western propaganda agaisnt Russia and believing it
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 4:10pm On Sep 24|
To survive in any country, you must first love the country. But if you come to Russia with hate in your heart for them based on what you have consumed from the piece of western propaganda. you hate will become an osbstacl for you. Because you won't think of survival but hate.
|Re: Nigerian In Russia-my Experience So Far by Austeen007(m): 4:11pm On Sep 24|
