    Why move there? Just wait for the next election.

    I got 2 and the cryptic remark:

    "You won't find the relocation process easy. After a while you’re probably be pin"

    But I consoled myself with this:

    I understand the first sentence, the second? Maybe they think I'll turn into a microwave, they are always "beepin'" Ha!

    I got 3.

    I think I'll move to Salisbury instead.

    It must be said that the legal system seems very impressive. When a trial is carried out, only 0.3 % of the accused are acquitted, and the average judge acquits someone only once every 7 years. Truly.

    For now, I'd rather move to Saint Petersburg than to the United States, and none of my friends seems to agree with me, even though Saint Petersburg is but one hour away (by plane) whereas it takes almost nine hours to fly to New York. (I am a European, after all.)

    Geographically speaking, Russia is almost our neighbours, but culturally speaking, Sweden (as almost every other country) has more in common with the United States. This is curious.

    I would prefer Novosibirsk to Moscow for having a more continental climate with colder winters. And its the 3rd biggest city in Russia,which is still very big of a city.

    However, some say Russia is dangerious. I don't know if it is true or not. So many mafias?

    One will have to go into the detailed statistics with that - there are so many different, related subjects, including domestic, racist, systemic and political violence, corruption & crime levels, night life, discrimination, health, etc.
    As regards overall life expectancy, Russia lies low. Corruption is very high. The average Russian income is now lower than that of a Chinese (!).

    I tend to agree with the local experts on the TripAdvisor Russia Forum, who are tired of getting countless questions about Russia being unusually unsafe for tourists though, especially from Western cities that have problems too. There are probably many places that are much more unsafe.

    I´ve only been to Ukraine, before the war, but in spite of its reputation I felt totally safe and welcome there. I wasn´t engaged in any problems with authorities there, though; the standard advice then was to avoid contact with the police if possible, and avoid shabby suburbs. With the increased patriotism, there might be more pride among members of the Russian police towards foreigners, good or bad.

    You all share a big passion for Ice Hockey, however. Congrats on the World Championships btw, how on earth did the Swiss reach the final game, though?
