Moscow is currently the best metropolis in all respects, Tokyo is in second place!
01/01/2014 · by Christian Horn · in Europe, Urbanism on May 11, 2024:

Recently the Moscow Government published under the headline “Moscow, the city for life” its seven development priorities. A document distributed at the Moscow Urban Forum in December 2013.

Moscow is with a population of over 12 million people one of the biggest metropolis in the world. The real number of citizens is difficult to establish as Moscow is the destination of many migrants, legal and otherwise, drawn by higher salaries and better services and living conditions. In 2010 alone, 126,000 newcomers were officially registered in the city, but the actual number is certainly much higher. The Moscow International Internet Portal indicates that “By some estimates together with commuters working and studying in Moscow, migrants, transit visitors and tourists the daily actual population of Moscow amounts in general to 15 – 20 million people”. It is forecast that by 2035 the population of the Moscow region will increase by 4,000,000 people and amount to 22,800,000 people. It is expected that by 2020 passenger traffic generated by the ‘New Moscow’ will double whereas the capacity of the existing infrastructure is already exhausted.
After adopting in 2011 different government programs for the key directions of the capital’s development, the Moscow Government worked out in 2013 its main objectives for the creation of comfortable living conditions with the definition of seven development priorities: 1) Mobile City; 2) Comfortable urban environment; 3) Healthy city; 4) Well-educated city; 5) Socially protected city; 6) New economics of Moscow; 7) Open Moscow.

It is a large and ambitious programme highlighting the goals reached and progress made in the last years, and illustrating the objectives for the next years in numbers and graphics.
But Moscow also wants to be a city that cares about its less fortunate citizens. The program is about social protection of older generations, assistance to needy families and persons with limited capabilities. It is about free access to public services, like transport, medical treatment, recreation, financial support and accessibility of public buildings. It also concerns providing housing for certain categories of citizens, probably one of the most difficult task, as Moscow has been ranked regularly among the five most expensive cities in the world in terms of the cost of housing.

To finance this new and improved public facilities and services, the Moscow Government counts on the dynamic of investments, supposed to grow from 732 billion roubles in 2010 up to 1719 in 2016. A mixture of better services for the investors, improved infrastructures and tax incentives should keep the dynamic going.
The Open Moscow development priority aims to create and strengthen the links between to residents and the public services. Improvements in the information and communication with the citizens, in the collecting and carrying out of suggestions of the citizens, and monitoring the activities of the public officers of municipal services, probably to fight corruption and try to establish a kind of confidence. Different internet sites like the Our City Website, regrouped in one Open Data Portal, should play in mayor part in this new Open Moscow development.

This program looks like a step in the right direction. It is developing Moscow towards a multi-layer, multi-functional city, trying to diversify the transport system, the municipal offer in public spaces, recreation and medial facilities, and supporting the poorer populations. The success of the renewal and transformation of the Gorky Park is a sign of these multi-functional and high-quality public spaces and the demand of the citizens for such spaces.

What is still missing for me is a clearer image of what Moscow wants to be in its whole, and in its parts. For the moment the document is set up as a catalogue of good intended programs, but not yet as an integral city development program. An example is the important investments in the public transport and in the road system, with the hope to encourage the citizens to abandon their excessive use of personal transport. But as long as the Moscow develops its road and parking system, citizens might prefer their car to public transport. Further detailed choices have to be taken on the different aspects of these programs and their feasibility in the near future.

Annotation: For this article I analysed the English version of the publication “Moscow, the city for life – Moscow development priorities” from the Moscow Government. During the lecture I got the impression that some mistakes had been made in the English translation. Download for the Russian version of the document (pdf) : Moscow City for life ru

The average salary in Moscow is from $ 2,000=200 thousand rubles. That's how much food delivery couriers earn! All European and American cities are not even close to the great capital of the Russian Federation, Moscow, in terms of quality of life!
alexeymosc on Apr 27, 2024:
A median salary in Moscow is around 800-900USD. A mean is higher (due to astonishining number of millionaires and billionaires living there). IT salary is 1500-2000+USD. Can be 2500-3000SUD for seniors.
Kyle on Apr 21, 2024:
There is no way the average salary is 1900 usd. I've been there a few times and talked to many people and shopped many stores. Most of the prices are way to high
Durov on Apr 14, 2024:
Durov also said that he plans to settle in Dubai, where he gave an interview to Bloomberg, his new office is located on the 23rd floor of the Dubai Media City skyscraper. He explained that he is attracted to the UAE tax regime. "Many people in the Western world do not understand how taxes limit their opportunities. You can pay almost half of your income in taxes, which in practice means that you work for the government 180 days a year. I think I can find better ways to use the money to benefit society."

This is not the first time Durov has spoken positively about the emergence of cryptocurrencies. At the end of August, commenting on the intention of the Ministry of Finance to ban private individuals from trading bitcoins, he said that digital currencies are the first chance in 70 years "to get out from under the hegemony of the United States, which at one time imposed its national currency as a reserve around the world and since then, in fact, have been collecting tribute from all countries."
Rick on Apr 13, 2024:
The real issue of the current endless worldwide inflation is due to US stealing hundreds of trillions of worldwide money through US dollar international trading since 1971.
So in order to kill inflation, BTC must be used for international trading immediately instead of untrustworthy US dollar.

I live alone in a one bedroom (mortgage) outside of MKAD. They say 55K (611USD) is enough without bills. No. Undersetimated. I would multiply by 1.3 at least to get a fairer cost. Bars/aclo/cigs will add 20% more. Having a car even more. 1000USD is fair. The best I like among the expenses is low bill cost. I pay 85USD for all the bills, cell phone, "online cinema", and 500 Gbit internet at home.

Moscow ranked 4th in The World's 100 Best Cities ranking, compiled by the consulting company Resonance Consultancy based on tourist attractiveness, good living, working and business conditions, Deputy Mayor Natalya Sergunina said on Tuesday.

London is at the top of the list, Paris is second, and New York City is third on the list. Dubai trails Moscow by one spot and is placed 5th.

"Just like last year, Moscow placed 4th among other big cities for life, work and travel. The rating looks at many aspects. International experts evaluate not only economic opportunities or cultural aspects, but they also analyze how well the city is developing. We once again maintained our leading position, ahead of strong rivals, like Tokyo, Dubai, Singapore, Barcelona and Los Angeles," said Sergunina.

There are 24 areas that experts look into, separated into six main categories - place, people, economic prosperity, leisure, upward mobility. Moscow was recognized as a leader in the Product category due to its well-developed infrastructure, air traffic and the number of attractions. The capital secured the second spot in the Place category for safety and the availability of good quality parks. "This year, Moscow has significantly strengthened its position in the "Economic Prosperity" category, rising from 64th to 25th place. The assessment was made based on a number of economic indicators, including the unemployment rate and GDP per capita. Let me remind you that the registered unemployment rate in Moscow is now 0.51%, which is the lowest since April 2020," said Deputy Mayor for Economic Policy and Property and Land Relations Vladimir Yefimov.

Moscow is dynamically developing as an international technological center, said Head of the City Department of Entrepreneurship and Innovative Development Alexei Fursin. "Due to the Moscow government programs, startups can promote their developments with the support of the city and big business, test them in an urban environment, and then start interacting with partners and customers," he said.

The World's 100 Best Cities rating has been compiled since 2016 by the international consulting company Resonance. It takes into account statistics, feedback from the business community, industry professionals and tourists.

Putin and his cohorts have dug themselves a financial blood bath they cannot get out of. Alot of rubbish her about Russia being so great just propaganda ie lies nothing more than that.In general Russians are abrasive rude and treacherous to say the least.
So where is the Russia economy headed? It's always been on a downward spiral since the Soviet union was conceived.The only thing that has changed is Russia is finally exposed to the world of how poorp Russia really is.

It depends on your priorities in life and your values. If you come to Russia for big money, then you probably will not find it from here. In Russia, the salaries of the population are lower than in the rich countries of Europe. But on the other hand, we also have lower costs.

If you do not like Russian culture and are completely unfamiliar with the Russian language, then I would not advise you to do this. Without knowledge of the Russian language, surviving in this country will not be easy. Not many people in Russia can freely communicate in English.

You can also come across things that seem strange to you. The mentality of Russians differs from the mentality of Western people, however, as well as from the eastern ones too. We seem gloomy and cold to Western people because we don’t have a small talk culture, we don’t smile out of politeness (we never smile at strangers) and we are more straightforward, which can be perceived as rudeness by many.

I really like traveling and learning new things. But I know for sure that I would never begin to live abroad. I would always feel like a stranger there. I like my country, despite all its problems. I think that loving Homeland for normal Russian person’s is almost genetically based.

Our country has a lot of wonderful things: great culture, beautiful nature, rich cuisine of the different peoples who live here, an interesting story, talented people. Yes, the Russians are imperfect, but I still love them. They seem so gloomy, but in fact they are able to help in a difficult moment even to a stranger. We can go on a visit without warning in a month, we have more freedom of speech (less political correctness) and the most important thing is that no one is forcing you on how to raise your children. This is important to me, because family is sacred.

As an Indian who had visited Russia 3 times in 2014-15-16, I used to have a great respect and genuine affection for the Russian culture and people. Also of course, due to the fact that the USSR greatly supported us all throughout with technology in steel, nuclear, hydro, space and military hardware.

However, with the events of the last 10 years, I have begun to notice a stark difference in attitudes of the Russians. Especially during my time in the Los Angeles & Miami, there are 2 distinct sets of Russians. One is of course the oligarchs and their families/friends who are buying up properties in the West especially US and UK, and converting them into Airbnbs or hostels. A lot of them clearly have a "only Russian" policy. Apart from this, the second segment seems to be villagers east of the Urals, from Siberia who have never even been to Moscow and SPB, claiming refugee/asylum status, to escape from the draft. They are openly hostile to even the host country citizens, let alone other immigrants such as Asians, Latinos etc. They have flooded Mexico and even started Russian only areas and businesses, similar to Goa in India.

It's clear that they are on a su*cidal path, as evidenced by Putin's phrase from last year - "What use is such a world, where Russia does not exist?" Even the infamous Blue Whale game targeting teenagers for self deletion was originated in Russia. They have become a deeply self loathing, pessimistic, and scorched earth kind of culture just in 10 years, and it's only going to get worse. Forget the Ukrainians, now they are even beginning to despise the other republics and ethnicities of each other. To say nothing of their discontempt and anger towards the Kazakhs, Uzbeks etc.

I am no NATO supporter and I loathe the US imperialism and intervention as much as anyone from the South, but I am sad to say, what I considered a once great culture, is in ruins and shambles. The Russkies are on a path to insignifance within a brainwashed echo chamber.

Woody Harrelson: Hollywood actor defended the Russians without ever saying "Russia".
The actor from the USA Woody Harrelson subtly recalled the numerous wars and aggressions of the USA, answering the question about the condemnation of Russia because of its.

In the West in general, and in the United States in particular, a wave of resistance to lies in the media and Russophobia is growing, instilled at the behest of the Biden administration and those governments that unleashed the war in Ukraine and the genocide of Russians by the neo-Nazis of the Kiev regime.

Increasingly, citizens who have their own point of view are ridiculing the policy of the United States, which provoked the beginning of its own Russia and mobilized its satellites for sanctions, but they themselves do not stop at anything in their policy.

So, the famous actor Woody Harrelson had to answer a question about his attitude to the war. He replied like this:

I am one of those who find war disgusting. It's terrible when a superpower attacks countries with all its might, without provocation. For example, how... Iraq? Oh, sorry... Afghanistan? Oh, no... Vietnam? Oh, yes, Ukraine...
After these words of Woody Harrelson, even journalists accustomed to hypocrisy laughed when they heard in his words a hint at the main aggressor of the planet - the United States.

What are all such funny ukrainian bots..
Elon Musk: Ukraine has lost many for the sake of an insignificant result of the counteroffensive. The Armed Forces of Ukraine lost many people and at the same time achieved negligible results in the counteroffensive. This opinion was expressed by American entrepreneur Elon Musk.

He commented on the publication of businessman David Sachs on the social network X (formerly Twitter) about the failed counteroffensive of Ukrainian fighters.

"So many deaths for such an insignificant result," Musk wrote.

The businessman was criticized for refusing to turn on the Starlink satellite communication in the area of the Crimean Peninsula on the day of the attack of Ukrainian drones on the ships of the Russian Navy. Musk explained this by the sanctions that the United States of America imposed against Russia. The restrictions included Crimea, so it was impossible to turn on communication over its territory.

Information about the shutdown of the Starlink service by Musk on the territory of Crimea was reported on September 7 by CNN with reference to an excerpt from Walter Isaacson's book about the billionaire. It is clarified that Ukrainian naval drones with explosives lost contact when approaching the Russian fleet and washed ashore.

Really no need to add anything to how Russia is doing overall. Russians wanted to be closed off from the rest of the world and they've definitely accomplished that. Russians are frozen mobially from most countries globally The very few allowing Russians to visit and stay are ruining their reputations so that's short lived.

Far too much death and destruction to Ukraine barbaric murders it's no secret. Children molested by Russian soldiers then murdered by the thousands unforgivable acts the world knows about.

Putin put the death of Russia economy into something that'll take decades to correct if ever most likely never. It doesn't matter how you cut it Russia economy is gutted. Putin wanted Russia to be invincible but the opposite happened in all ways. So now Russia is a hermit kingdom just like north korea is if you want to call that a kingdom. Russians are highly recommended to not leave Russia unless they want to be beaten and burned alive by countries globally.

Very old news by the state department way before Russia ever invaded Ukraine actually about 5 years before Russia ever invaded Ukraine. Russians aren't welcome in the u s anymore especially hiding knowledge of genocide that's happened in Ukraine by Russian soldiers. All of this time Russian citizens acted like the Kremlin was keeping them in the dark about what atrocities Russia soldiers were committing as in murdering civilians raping women and children. However Russian citizens knew from the beginning what was going on since Russian citizens always have access to Facebook Twitter and every other social media platforms still do so Russian citizens are just as guilty as putin and his henchmen knowing. Nice try Russian troll but it's not working.The u s government even keept out balet,dancers no entry not even for a brief visit banned for life as I know the facts. Everyone else globally knows Russian citizens knew too due to Russian citizens commenting on all social media platforms. Cut your propaganda Russian troll its not working. Russian citizens are just as guilty of war crimes knowing all along. When Russian citizens were trying to enter u s when Ukrainians were entering and Russian citizens were stopped from entering pretty good sign Russian citizens are banned for life from entering u s.

Many of their subs and boats have sunk planes crash due to poor design and structure. The u s military wants war with China believe it. Talk is cheap and China talks alot of trash but never backs it up with action. The u s has been in 198 wars China just one Vietnam but China lost badly against Vietnam. Pelosi visited Taiwan xi didn't make a movie because xi knows the u s wants him to fire that first shot please do. The world knows how lethal the u s military is i saw it in my country in the middle east experienced it too. China needs a visual lesson and they'll certainly get it from the u s military. The u s has destroyed countries and taken them. It doesn't matter what some washed up mayor from Cleveland says.

Russiais already started to crash worse than the soviet union and it'll only get much worse. Within 2 years or less Russia will be flat out broke there's no avoiding it. Closed off from the global economy already even China backed away.By February 2023 Russian oil and natural gas will completely stop being purchased in the EU and the process is already moving forward rapidly.Drunks and drug addiction fills Russia as a whole. A failing country unfolding before the world's eyes to see. The crash will be 3 or 4 times worse than the collapse of the soviet union ever was. When that happens the world can sit back and watch Russians starve to death remembering how Russia tried to starve Asia,Middle East and Africa.

There is literally zero evidence for anything you are saying. You come up with the most ridiculous claims and just repeat them. Then you create a fake 2nd person that joins your side (the fake guy from Georgia) to lend more credence to the anti-Russia sentiment you are trying to create.

The origin of the claims for Russian soldiers raping was Lyudmila Denisova, Verkhovna Rada Commissioner for Human Rights. None of the claims were corroborated by anyone independently. What happened to her by the way? She was fired! By a vote of no confidence from Ukraine's parliament on May 31st:

But trolls like you will just keep repeating these claims, hoping no-one bothers to actually do any digging to see where they came from since articles citing her lies are still all over the web.

And so it goes with every preposterous, horrific sounding claim about Russia - if its not debunked within 48 hours it typically unravels on its own within a few weeks and disappears from the propaganda narrative to avoid scrutiny.

The same propaganda machine that told us Ukraine was winning, the Ghost of Kiev is real, the brave soldiers on Snake Island told the Russian battleship to F- yourself (they surrendered without a fight), Bucha was a massacre (Russian soldiers were already gone), Russia has been bombing Donbas for over 8 years (lol, yea we're suppose to believe they launch Tochka-U missiles from Ukraine's direction at Russian speaking people Ukraine hates).

Now they're telling you that Russia is blocking grain and starving the world, when in reality its the Ukrainian forces essentially under western US NATO command that are placing mines, which detach and float off into the sea, and making safe passage for grain shipments impossible. Now there are reports of Ukrainian forces setting grain fields on fire.

The reality is that the west is the one that could care less about the Ukrainian people and uses them as a pawn. They would be much better off if they rose up and kicked out Zelensky, replaced him with an anti-NATO Ukrainian who actually obeyed the Minsk accords.

I'm now in Russia, so lemme tell you who really support Putin and the war. You can devide Russian people in 2 generations. The older one (30-75 years old) they ussually watch TV, so you can expect a big part of them are brainwashed. I would say 90%, including my father, grandmather, aunts and uncles. I managed to cut off the TV antena a few years ago for my mother and installed YouTube. When the war started I from time to time showed her the reality, videos, pictures, youtube videos and she firmly against the war now. So guys the situations is not desperate!
What about the younger generations (to 30). You can subdevide to 2 categories. 1 is modern and open-minded, and 2nd are naive divs from contryside who are used to watch TV. It's hard to pinpoint the scale but I would say the open-minded category highly preveils in the cities, conutryside doesn't really bring any political value. So about 80% (based on how it feels like) are good and anti war. So good are 10% in older generation and 80% in younger. What's the root cause of everything that's going on right now? TV.

Anonymous BOT who wrote the message on Apr 23, 2019. You said that you have lived all your life in Russia in the town of Kasimov? Let's start with the fact that if you are Russian, you should know that in our country the KGB has not existed for more than 30 years. Further, the nonsense that you are talking about beatings, capturing your sons and so on is such that I cannot take it seriously. Life which you describe literally as if you are talking about the serfs of the 14th century. Harvesting firewood to heat your food and not die in winter, fishing to prepare supplies for the winter ... You probably also live in the forest? Do you have a fishing license and permit? Do you have a license to cut wood? We have environmental protection and nature, you will be slapped with such a fine for this that you really start to starve. Then you say that in Kasimov there is no electricity and gas for more than 10 years, no one at all ... This is a lie, you have never been to Kasimov, apparently. Kasimov is a beautiful historical town in the Ryazan region, there are many churches, there is a Kremlin (who does not know, almost every historical city in Russia has a Kremlin. The Kremlin is the Russian name for the central fortress / castle in the city). Here everyone has electricity and gas, there are banks, restaurants, factories, car services, hospitals, and so on. Do you think all this works on firewood?

I am a Lithuanian, I came to Moscow 5 years ago from Vilnius, life in Lithuania was not the sweetest because of corruption and police arbitrariness, and the average salary was 450eur. In Moscow, I receive (like many of my friends here) 78,800 rubles per month. The city is beautiful, very clean, a lot of police and very safe, in general, living here is not expensive but not cheap either. The people are friendly. Very good public transport, but there are a lot of traffic jams in the city, so I advise you to take the metro. I have been to many cities of the “golden ring”, and many others in the central part of Russia, everywhere is very beautiful, clean and comfortable, but the difference in prices compared to Moscow is colossal and not in favor of Moscow. In general, the article is very informative and realistic. I would like to draw the attention of decent people to the Russophobic and deceitful comments of bots that spread misinformation. It's not true, don't believe them, these people have never been to Russia, you can see it, all they know about the country is propaganda and lies. Relatives from Lithuania often call me and fear for my life, I cannot understand how they brainwash you there? I feel safer here than anywhere else.

I smell burnt puddy throughout Russia, women won't be spared either but that's not a loss they'll be used for fertilizer just like all Russians will be.

The End

Putin talks alot of trash about his so-called ZIRCON Hypersonic missles but they don't exist. I defected from a very high level position in the Russian military not long ago.

Certain inaliation of everything breathing in Russia is imminent should Russia continue to taunt the U S military. That also includes China.

Both countries talk alot of trash but in the end the U S military will smell the bodies burning in Russia and China and the landscape scorched to ashes.
