Even after paying a little bit extra for an extra-legroon seat the price is still fine with me, I'll have quick mooch around Moscow in Feb

Edit, I wasn't tough enough to book for February, somewhere hidden among the geopolitical know-it-all comments was some good advice about the Moscow weather.
I booked June after all

wrap up, but a cracking deal.

plus the visa cost...
but good deal nevertheless

Are the visas still £130 each?

February probably will be around -30 degrees atleast. deffo wrap up!

We went last Aug.Hot then.Great city but expensive and visas over £100 each and lots of paperwork as i did most of it for our family of 4.

It's hardly a collapsing empire, once the oil prices stabilise and increase they'll be on the road to recovery in a few years despite the sanctions. Just not a place I'd go in February and pay the extra for the visa. Decent price for the flight though.

never knew you could get to moscow via kayak thought you had to fly

yes visas are costly I went to st Petersburg and loved it !
beware there are no Linekers bars or pubs with only fools and horses on in Russia
nor any bingo or Karaoke

For the Russian state to balance its books, the oil price would have to 'stabilise' near $90 if memory serves (I remember reading such a stat on a Robert Peston blog). The price of oil is currently ~$55 with no immediate sign that it is going to increase to a level where Russia is able to balance its books....
With America providing much of its own fossil fuels these days via fracking etc, & with energy use falling in places such as Western Europe, I honestly wouldn't feel so convinced that Russia will recover any time soon.
& I for one am glad to see Putin being given a bloody nose. His right wing approach to civil liberties, his actions in Ukraine, & his arrogance .... he is reaping what he has sowed.

once the oil prices stabilise and increase



Not much chance of that for a few years yet... price has been going steadily down the last few years...lack of global demand

Collapsing Empire....hardly...it's imploding... and it will take them decades to recover... even if oil/gas prices rise
Last years big shot....this year shot

USA uses imported fossil fuels still, two reasons: 1. It's cheaper to import than to extract through fracking. 2. When cheaply accessible fossil fuels in the rest of the world are exhausted, USA will still have plenty and so will be in the strongest of economic positions. Current oil price is really hurting North sea production for UK and Norway. Norwegians have been very smart though, and have built up a significant reserve of cash.

On topic though, super price, hot deal. Go carefully.

The UK is diversified and is clearly able to withstand the oil price fluctuations. Whilst the North Sea oil industry is reeling, the rest of the economy is benefiting from the cheaper transportation/manufacturing costs etc.
Russia's economy has no counter-balance. It is hugely dependent on oil, and catches a serious bout of economic flu when the prices fall.

Norway hasn't been 'smart'...it is simply geographically and demographically fortunate. Its land borders one of the biggest oil fields, where it has exclusive extraction rights....yet its population numbers just 4 million or so. Huge revenues, and **** all to spend it on :). It's easy to create the world's biggest sovereign wealth fund when one has such inherent advantages.
The UK's North Sea oil by comparison is smaller in volume, yet our population is more than 15 times larger than that of Norway.

Not sure what point I was trying to make there :). Haha

Oh yes, Russia is screwed.

Hot deal though, even if it will be ridiculously cold in Russia at that time of the year!

For actions in Ukraine see proxy wars created by the West. I wouldn't believe everything you read in the newspapers if I were you.

I don't. I of course read the newspapers, but also apply a healthy dose of skepticism and a smattering of 'what would I want if I were Ukranian/Polish/Romanian/Bulgarian' etc etc...
Having visited many of the old Soviet bloc countries over a number of cycle tours, the overwhelming impression I got from meeting the locals was how they did not want to go back to the fear and oppression that was so endemic in the Soviet era.
I simply cannot believe that the majority of Ukrainians would want to align themselves with Russia rather than Europe. Fear over freedom? Nah....it just doesn't add up.

Haha -- I love it when people reference websites like collective-evolution.com!! Seriously, DO NOT listen to a word they say. It is utter drivel. It is just click bait porn that raises revenues for the website owners.

Here is one of their incisive and well researched 'news' articles ;

collective-evolution.com/201…am/

“People in the Western World need to know what’s happening here in West Africa. THEY ARE LYING!!!…. The Red Cross has brought a disease to 4 specific countries for 4 specific reasons and it is only contracted by those who receive treatments and injections from the Red Cross. That is why Liberians and Nigerians have begun kicking the Red Cross out of their countries and reporting in the news the truth.” (source)

The visa and all the paperwork associated with it - read the visa vouchers etc. is an absolute joke in this age, who in their right minds would ask for this much documentation - but thats got nothing to do with the deal per se, just saying.

I do agree with you, he deserves everything he gets. Also I wouldn't pay £100 each for a visa to visit Moscow.

However I'm sure politicians thought that Russia would be hit harder as a result of the sanctions. Despite lack of global demand, Russia supplys oil/gas to various eastern European countries that still rely on Russia.

Yes, but they are now being forced to sell their gas/oil at a much lower price. So they may have the same customers as before, but they are making far less profit from those customers.
Sanctions are hitting one area of the economy, & the fall in oil revenues is hitting another. Combined, they are a perfect storm that is forcing the Russian central bank to hemorrhage cash to try and get Russia out of jail...

The sanctions are doing their job.

Welcome to the UK :). Why did you have to leave Russia?

It isn't really EasyJet's choice whether or not they're round trip tickets now is it? Remember, you think Putin looks fantastic shirtless and you don't even know where Ukraine is let alone have an opinion about it.

Because I am have a civil partner who is Pakistani

Thanks for the deal anyway, I'll ignore all the **** and politics written above and just take it as I want too...it's a deal and I'm interested....end of story.

Very **** that easyjet cancelled their night return flights to London after I had booked them - costing me an extra hotel day because they now have flights at 12 or some such insane time - wasteful really.

Thanks for the deal anyway. I'll ignore the bull***t written above and just accept the deal.

Have you ever looked at the UK visa process for non-EU immigrants or even visitors from non-waiver countries? Or how about the fact that the United States and Australia now demand that all foreign visitors apply in advance at their own expense, including citizens of countries that share a visitor waiver pact with them e.g. the UK.

Russia is free to control its borders however it sees fit. Their citizens don't receive any special treatment from foreign governments when they travel overseas and they offer none in return unlike the UK and EU which continue to let the Aussies and Americans treat their citizens like crap.

I agree every country is free to control their borders the way they like, but if it gets too overbearing then surely its' right. By the way I am a non-EU citizen in the UK on a work visa too and didn't find it half as onerous as trying to get a tourist visa to Russia - I mean why would any sane person staying in the UK on a work visa want to settle down in Russia (which is what the paperwork being asked for getting a tourist visa to Russia suggests to me) - maybe its just my opinion.

You have to remember that the relationship between the UK and Russia isn't exactly a friendly one and the two have a very fraught relationship. They demand all of that paperwork because they consider you guilty until proven innocent.

What you can say about Russia is that it doesn't market itself as an international tourist or holiday destination. Therefore it is far less hypocritical in my opinion than a country like the US which markets itself at European families and then treats them like garbage.
