I have been to Moscow for three days and it looked a quite wealthy place. Is the rest of Russia that much poorer?

A picture worth a thousand words.

This is a photo I’ve made just outside of my office:

This wooden houses are more than 100 years old but people still live in them because they do not have money to buy anything better.

And this is a picture I’ve made after a 5-minute walk:

You see that modern building at the background? It is a theatre that was built about 5 years ago. It costed more than $300 million and about half of that sum was stolen by government officials (starting with a federal minister who was responsible for funding). It is large and pretty but is surrounded by 100+ years old houses inhabited by people earning $200 per month.

It is Russia in a nutshell: a small islands of “normal” life, mostly built on the foundation of oil revenues and theft, surrounded by wast ocean of poverty.

По кончикам верб Голоса за дверью - мама, папа, сестры. Детство. Я проснулся. Слюнка натекла... Вспомню - будто возвращусь на укромный остров. Там тепло. До смерти хватит мне тепла. Яблоки с айвою, с ноткою тумана- запах. Так, наверное, должен пахнуть рай... Принеси мне яблочко, мама...…

На самом деле была ср зарплата лет 15 назад 100 фунтов, а сейчас 500 фунтов.
У дома родителей (200 квартир) 25 лет назад стояло 3-5 машин. Сейчас не поставить - 200 наверно.
Еды вдоволь, пиво даром, водка 2,5 фунта.
Не в том проблема сейчас, не в бедности.
