But how's the salary in Russia? It has to be somewhat around 7.000.000 RUB to be even comparable to Switzerland, UK or the US.

Good case to be 4kk RUB (~55k $ brutto) somewhere in Moscow or Saint-Petersburg
... But consider:

  • More cheaper rent
  • More cheaper food
  • Good connection to worldwide destinations (Russia is between Europe and Asia)
  • More paid-off days (28 vacation days + 14 holiday days which are paid by employer too = 42 days vacation)
  • Most of IT-companies offer free gym + free additional medical insurance
