can an american retire in russia on $600/month of passive income? Posted on May 23, 2023 by Anonymous can an american retire in russia on $600/month of passive income?
The average russian dies like 15 years earlier than the average american and is much more likely to have aids from gay sex.
To live alone yes
So $1200 a month to live comfy?
Not in Moscow.
Exchange is not a problem at all. You can exchange at any time at any bank of you have your passport with you. However money transfer is a problem but I don't it is a problem for an American sitizen.

What about all the shit with SWIFT?
All that shit prevents me from buying licenced software from your vendors and steam games without supporting our Borat neighbour economy. Monetary exchange has never stopped for a single day in Russia and I was able to both buy and sell dollars.
Really? Weird but if you say so must be true.
Idk bro, I saw many videos and from what I understood you can live in small cities with like 600 per month which is close to the minimum salary but in moscow you would need like 3000 which I assume is for an entire family so I guess with 1200 you could live comfortably in some small city
Yeah were a bit nervous at the first moment but it all boiled down to us a) not being able to transfer money to US or Europe without middlemen b) not being able to buy stuff online from US or Europe. It did hurt those Russians that worked for Western Europe but stayed in Russia and from the inside it looked like you shot yourself in the leg. Those few who panicked or had property abroad fled, and most of them came back in autumn. Those who wanted to stay bought themselves debit cards from Kazakhstan. I opted to use pirate software.
Of course the problem would be to exchange your dirty American money
I don't think so. You will have enough to money to by yourself food for cooking and cover most of your basic needs but healthcare is not free for non-Russians and you will have to pay rent. If can buy yourself a good house beforehand and you don't need a car, then why not?
A dacha and a gf from the Urals/Far East sounds worth it to me, with a Lada Niva out front. I figure many of your white countrymen have made the same decision not to mention other settlers from outside Russia, just like the fur trappers which first settled North America
New niva is at least 800000 roubles, and the old one will be a rotten pain in the ass. Dacha is typically a summer cottage. Many of them don't have gas heating. You simply won't survive a winter without heating and a properly insulated house. If something happens to electricity there, then you will be found in spring like a snowdrop.
That's pretty metal
I glad that you reminded me about metal. When a real frost strikes, metal starts to break like icicles. It does not happen every day in Southern Siberia or in Far East, but -30 or even - 35 C is expected once a winter for a day or two. If a thick layer of ice has formed on the wires, they simply burst like a dry grass in such temperature. Life time of any battery is like 10 times less during cold weather.
Let’s say, I move to Russia, have children with Russian woman, do the children have citizenship? What countries does Russia allow immigration from?
Yes probably. I never did this myself though. I must warn you that any Russian woman that marries you, does that because she wants to move to Canada. Hollywood propaganda works really well in Russia and many people just assume that US is a Beverly Hills 90210 show and Canada is the same but with beawers and a little bit colder.
You could live off $300 a month in a small town next to Moscow. I’ve done this periodically and plan on going back soon. I won’t name the town because I don’t naggers like you shitting up the place but just know it’s possible. Also the streets are cleaner, the super markets are great and the people are generally cool and aren’t uptight wackjobs as they are depicted here in the west. Happy trails!
Was gonna say larp but some small towns really do have decent grocery stories
Usually ppl suck tho, uneducated bumpkins same as in US
Not true at all, especially in spb and Moscow girls love their hometown and only would travel but not live abroad
I live there for a 30 years and I definitely know more about Russian girls. Most of them are hilariously delusional.
I'm curious as to how they'd compare to our delusional women

Do you unironically have only 90k in your investment account? Bro just work a few more years, get around 2k passive income then enjoy your life.
I plan on going to help "rebuild" ukraine when the war is over but I'll really just be squatting unfinished buildings getting drunk and eating donated food for the next 20 years
$600 per month gets you a small shitty flat and pretty dull life. Very simple meals, no eating out or going to bars, no nice holidays, no expensive clothes. You’ll really have to save.
Changing money is easy if you’re not retarded. USD - crypto - RUB
Actually doing it this way you get like extra 2-3% on your money because Russians pay a premium to ditch RUB
>t. American who lived in Russia for several years
How do you like poland?
We've started getting blacked since the recession after covid money printing. Ruling "conservative" party did a 180 and is importing browns at the fastest rate of any country in Europe right now. Years ago I never saw browns, now I see them every day. It's all so tiresome.
Five years ago? Maybe. But nowadays you'll need more, unless you plan to live somewhere even shittier than Krasnoyarsk.
Right now I make around 65k roubles every month from dividends (around 4k BRL). Once the war is over I want to return to eastern europe (working on my passport right now). Is that amount of money enough to live a quiet life in a small town and raise 3 kids? I can get citizenship in Belarus and Russia. I plan on checking Crimea out and Rostov Oblast since it's where my family comes from .
