ARKHANGELSK: ”My twin sister and I are planning right now to move to Moscow because of the job market here. People of my age are leaving, but they are choosing St Petersburg, not Moscow,” said Daria, 25, who works in real estate.
“There isn’t much work and the salaries are disappointing. I was working as an engineer, but left because I was earning a very small salary. I now earn three times more.”
According to local people, the median salary is around 15,000-20,000 rubles ($250-$300 based on the current ruble-dollar rate).
