This is a so-called stop-line for the driver. This sign is an informational one, and isn't used without the traffic-lights or priority signs. By default, the driver must stop vehicle on road-cross near the traffic-lights, so the vehicle does not cross its imaginary line: But sometimes this line can be moved before or after the traffic-lights for the ...

Traffic signs are there to regulate the traffic in case the traffic light is not working. This is a practice in many parts of the world. For example, in Australia, there are combined traffic-light & stop signs that work the same way. In Germany, the law regulates this also: Lichtzeichen gehen Vorrangregeln und Vorrang regelnden Verkehrszeichen ...

It's complicated. As for the "good buddies" thing, the relationship got better in a certain way, due to Kadyrov allowing his countrymen to go fight in Ukraine. On the other hand, certain tensions arise: e.g. several weeks ago some cops from another region killed a suspect in Chechnya, after which Kadyrov declared that any non-Chechen policeman may be fired ...

While it has been complicated and drawn out conflict, to my personal or following news knowledge "wrong" passport stamps had never been an issue in it. Anecdotally I am Ukrainian and transferred through airport in Moscow last year (security and everything), without as much as a bad look. It has been quite strange aspect of this conflict, that despite... ...

What you have described fits the town of Черноголовка, or with in Latin font, Chernogolovka (directly translated to approximately 'Black Head') It is to the North East of Moscow (rather than the South), just outside of the A107 'ring road' (beltway, orbital, etc). The institute you referred to would be the Russian Academy of Sciences (Nauchny tsentr v ...

I would suggest that you travel from the airport to Lobnya or Sheremetyevskaya train station on the Savyolovskoye line. From there, there are direct trains to Dubna. Lobnya is better because some trains skip Sheremetyevskaya. The trouble with railway timetable is that it is likely to be altered with some trains canceled and some rescheduled, and that needs ...

In addition to VMAtm's answer, for practical purposes, also consider the field on the passport application where you have to select whether it's your first passport, or whether you're getting it in exchange of a used/damaged/lost one. 9 Получение паспорта Первичное Взамен использованного Взамен испорченного Взамен утраченного When ...

This is only a recommendation from the consulates, as the time deadlines for a new passport creation are up to 3 months, so if you want to get a new passport when your old one is about to expire in 2 months, you could get into to situation when you have no valid passport. The only restriction is that you can't get a new passport without invalidation the old ...

As stated here -- How can I get an 'invitation' to Russia? -- the invitation letter is more like tradition rather than, as Eugene stated, a required document to register. From personal experience, the invitation letter is really more of a subtle 'tax' to add on to your typical visa application; many 'invitations' can be bought for a small fee, even ...

As someone who has undergone the registration process many times (including as recently as the end of 2014), I can tell you that the "invitation letter" (or anything to do with your invitation) is completely irrelevant to the registration process - it is NOT on the list of documents required to register you as a foreigner. The person registering you can be ...

I'm answering as a frequent traveler to Russia (have been to many different cities there over the course of many years). First, in all my travels and interactions with Russian authorities, I have never once been asked by any government official for any registration papers (though I've always registered when required by law). A lot of the scary warnings about ...

Found this press-release on russian version of the US embassy in Moscow (simply add russia. to the URL of the release: Для американцев соглашение снимает ограничение максимального пребывания в России до 90 дней в течение любого 180-дневного периода действия визы. Так же, как и россиянам в США, им теперь будет разрешено пребывание в России до шести ...

First of all, these two types of passport all equal for the person that owns them - they are totally acceptable all across the world. But for the new-style biometric passport there is an opportunity to add some bio-parameter to the chip of the passport. This service isn't required, and still being in test period, but for some countries it can save a lot of ...
