Not all citizens of Russia are Russians ( Русские).

To get back to the original topic: Vladivostok and Khabarovsk are tropical in the summers, not in a good way. Impossibly hot and humid, July is the worst. Petro-Pavlovsk has the best weather in the summer, like the Pacific Northwest of the US, and winters are relatively mild, like southern Alaska. In contrast to Yakutia or Mongolia, where it gets to 60 below zero and worse. Kamchatka is very liveable, that's my impression.

Finally, there has been some hydroelectric development in the Khabarovsk region, so the city now has air-conditioning, a must for surviving those hot summers! It's a real break-through.

My vote, for living in the RFE would be Kamchatka or Khabarovsk. My personal favorite is Ulan Ude, Buryatia, but that's nowhere near the RFE.

I wonder, how is the heat supply in Petro-Pavlovsk? Back in the late 90's, it was unreliable, and some apartment buildings didn't have heat in winter. Has that problem been solved?

Heat supply, as well as in any other city, OK. Gas pull from the North of the Kamchatka Peninsula. Petropavlovsk is located in the South. We have a thermal power plant is one of the most modern and powerful stations of this type. It is worth to thermal springs. Soon will come the sea of atomic electro-station

Thermal power plant. Very ecological! Atomic isn't a good idea in an earthquake zone.

On the ferry from Vladivostok to South Korea and Japan can you take your car with you? And can you find Japanese or Korean registered cars in Russia? or Russian cars in Japan or Korea?

Register всеровно in России.Но Yes можно.от Sakhalin to Japan 40 км.Авто usually they were not going there and from Korea and Japan in the far East and throughout Russia.
A there is no sense to take a car, because they're there in 3 -4 times cheaper than in the far East Rossii.esli in the far East of Russia were prices such as in Japan or Korea to auto, then we would have bought new through every 1-2 months

Awesome! You're a real asset to the forum. Do you have any pictures of more personal, street-level variety, maybe something along the lines of this?
