For anyone who is interested in going to Russia I thought you might want to be aware of the following.
1. Visa Restrictions
Russia has recently changed it's visa restrictions and the types of visas you need to stay in country. for example a cultural visa (which I have) is only good for three months. If you are interested in coming to Russia, please double check with your travel agent/advisors about what type of visa you need/would be best for your type of travel.
It has come to my attention that certain Russian cities are restricted and you cannot send international packages to them (Yaktusk is one of these cities) if you are looking to send a package to Russia from another country, you might want to double check the city restrictions.
