there are no bears in Russian streets)) but in the villages most of people have cows, goats, ducks. most of our villages and towns look like mix of modern (with big shopping and business centres) and old (i mean USSR) buildings and cultures.

DIDI , they have many problems because 1) living in Moscow and St.Petersburg is MUCH more expensive than in town or village. 2) they find a work hardly , if they are without work experience , because capital education is apraised MUCH more than province one. However , as a moscovite , I can say that there are MUCH more people from countryside than us ,local ones. Moscow salary is much higher and living conditions are better (medicine ,entertainment etc) ,so all these problems ,I think , don't matter for provincials who consider villay life boring.
