Some free advice for such emigrants: if you think you are going to be better off in the west, then you are very sadly mistaken.
You are going to have to start from scratch if you are an engineer, doctor or any other profession aside from the ones
that do not require certification and education. You will be paying rent like you have never seen before. Your meager
immigrant income will go to support your landlord.
Stay in Russia and let your children get a proper education and not Mickey Mouse time waste. Your children can still get
a PhD without having to go into major debt. In Canada, post secondary education now costs a lot.
Stay in Russia to live with people with a naturally compatible mentality and not MSM drones who have no culture of
grass roots information exchange. In Canada and the USA, political discussion among friends or in a bar is frowned upon.
If you really want a better life then work and fight for it in Russia.
