    Studying medicine in Volgograd, Russia & security issues

    Advertisements



    Hi I am a 20 year old Malaysian who plans to study medicine in Volgograd State Medical Academy. I have read so many articles about skinheads and racists in Russia. I hope someone can give me a clearer picture about my security when I study in Volgograd. I would also like to know if racism is as widepsread in Volgograd as it is in Moscow? I really want to do medicine in Russia because I think it is so rich in culture but if my security is seriously compromised in Russia, it will defeat my intention of going there. Hope you guys can help, thanks!

    dont worry!

    The Racist problem in Moscow is much much hyped......i hav been there many a times ....its a very safe city and u ll find MILITSIAS (police)everywhere......thats what I can say from my 3 years experience.....well thats not only my view ...according to the lonely planet(which is considered to be the most reliable travel magazine) "Moscow is as safe as and as dangerous as Newyork or any other big US city." u just need to follow some common some safety measures that any foreigner should follow in any big international metropolitan city(ask ur mon or GF she will surely utter a whole book on that issue...u ll just need to edit)

    now about Volvograd...Its a cool, safe place BUT its too COLD......but be careful Volvograd med academy is called the most strict med school in Russia...never bunk yr classes...n study hard.....else u may get "chechlenia"(resticated).....if u are a boy get a Russian GF...u ll pick upthe language faster....n life will b easier....................Russia is so cold that u need something HOT!

    Talking of racism - your comment at the end stinks of it! Russian women, hot and there for your pleasure and usage!! I find that personally offensive! What are you saying, that Russian women are easy for you men to use for sex and objectify?! Perhaps you should reconsider your own values and attitudes towards women and your own levels of racism - particularly towards white women. Consider your own attitude first! Where is your respect? Disgusting! Would you speak so openly and freely about your own women?
