On this page, you will find out about salaries in Russia. I tried to collect the latest and complete information.

Salaries in Russia are relatively low; however, over the last 10 years, they have been rising steadily along with living standards. However, the costs of living in Russia are increasing too. Especially food is more and more expensive each year.
Notably, average revenue seems to be ephemeral. I will show you how it is calculated by the following example. Four people work at the mill plus director. Two workers earn 10 thousand roubles a month, one worker earns 15 thousand roubles, one foreman earns 30 thousand roubles, and the director earns hundred thousand roubles. The miller average salary is (10000 + 10000 + 15000 + 30000 + 100000) / 5 amounts to 33 thousand roubles. This is approximately how salaries of Russian people can be calculated. Many of them do not even see the average salaries with their own eyes. If you want to understand the situation with salaries in this country better, you should consider these facts.
