    In those parts of Russia there is literally nothing to buy and no people besides single unemployed men and elderly.

          As long as you have a foreign passport, picking up women in russia is ridiculously easy. Remember the 2018 World Cup? The government literally had to step in and intervene because all the russian women were trying to get fricked and impregnated by mexicans, brazilians and africans. They really are that desperate to gtfo.

            It's super easy. I spent about two and a half weeks there in 2018. Slept with one girl in Moscow and one in St. Petersburg. Just used Tinder, had a couple of dates, and took them to a nice restaurant. I brought flowers too because that's a bigger thing there than in the West. That's it. I'm White with dual US/Canadian citizenship. I saw turks pulling local girls, too. Russia has a significant surplus of women, so the odds are really in foreigners' favor there.

      True to some extent. Economically depressed zones in otherwise developed countries are ideal for finding a large property for cheap, settling in, and building your private retreat. But you can't expect poor parts of Russia or America to have the plethora of cheap food, budget lodging and fun activities that are found in Third World countries. Also, such regions are often hostile to newcomers, so expect to keep to yourself.
      Living in a region with low spending power means you will be regularly driving to the nearest city to stock up on groceries and other necessities, as what is locally available will be either inadequate or absurdly expensive.

      Tolyatti is literally safer than any US city though, you can walk safely at night
      A lot of Detroit is unwalkable even at day kek

      People walk around in Russia?

      Would love to visit Russia but I'm American and don't want to get interrogated and surveilled by alphabet agencies just because i wanted to drink vodka and flirt with big titted blondes

      From what I've seen and read, FSB is not paranoid like they used to be, and they surely aren't out to hustle petty cash from foreigners. Everyone carries cell phones these days, and they can easily track you that way. There's more important things for them to worry about than an American tourist who goes home with a different girl every night, kek. But if you are heading out by yourself and exploring "abandoned" facilities, you will arouse suspicion, and once Russian suspicion is aroused, nothing you say will dispel it.
      Still, Putin just a few weeks ago expressed a desire to build up a tourist industry in Russia's Far East, which has some amazing natural scenery. Plenty of adventure to be had out there for those who want something that is authentic and unspoiled by mass tourism.

      Really? I thought Russian would be good for desperate women.

      They go where the grass is greener as soon as they can. Just like the USA, pretty young things always gravitate to certain cities.

        I spent 3 months in Russia and as a Texan, I had zero problems at all. Not one person that entire time gave me shit. I am dead serious. If you learn the local language, that will show them that you care and will be your friend, however Russian is enough. If you show up in say Tuva or Tatarstan and start rattling off their native tongue, You'll probably be treated like a prince. Russians are some of the nicest people I have ever been around.

    The republics are the poorest regions of the entire Russian Federation, particularly the Muslim ones like Ingushetia, Chechnya, Dagestan, etc. which are poor due to the wars there with Russia and all the terrorist activity which makes it unattractive for business / investment, and then there are the nomadic ones of the frigid steppes such as Tuva where the infrastructure is so bad because it's so far and there's nothing of value in that land. Some republics like Tatarstan have oil and manufacturing so they thrive though.

    However, these places aren't "Russian" Russia, just autonomous regions for ethnic minorities. Oblast means a province of the Russian part of the Russian Federation, so the poorest oblast would be Ivanovo Oblast. This was a working class region for textiles on the outskirts of Moscow, mostly of women and is nicknamed the "city of brides". Industrial places like this tended to be the most "soviet", so when the union collapsed, these places suffered the worst.

    In terms of cities, Tolyatti in Samara Oblast is the poorest as it used to be the center for automobile industry but got industrialized so in a way it's like Detroit. The other Russian cities in the region (all in the southwest) such as Volgograd, Saratov, Astrakhan, etc also have very high poverty rates. I also think it's because these cities are closer to the republics and the Stan countries so they get a lot of rural migrants moving there looking for work, and generally they will be poorer and live in shoddy tenements.

      >Astrakhan
      Even though a lot of the city now looks slummy and grim, Astrakhan still is a wonderful place with some fairly nice quarters and a unique culture and history, being located on the edge of Russia next to Kazakhstan and belonging to Central Asia more so than it does to Eastern Europe.

      Astrakhan has been a melting pot of Central Asian, European, Caucasian and Middle Eastern cultures for centuries and still has a fairly diverse population. It actually has one of the oldest Catholic churches in Russia and the oldest Kalmyk Buddhist temple that survived the Soviet era, and the city has more mosques than Russian Orthodox churches. Astrakhan’s diversity is reflected in that racism is very rare there compared to most of Russia.

      It also have a lot of fascinating and atypical nature, including steppes, semideserts, deserts, red hills, salt lakes and the Volga river delta.

        I wear quality clothing, but wear the same thing over and over again for years until it wears out. I make right around the average annual Russian salary, just above American poverty rate and complain when a 5 dollar meal doesn't satiate me. I once knew how to understand half of what I read of a Russian newspaper, will they let me rent a dacha for a summer?
