Khabarovsk
Overall impression

A beautiful city combining modern and historic architecture. A very green city with multiple monuments.

Chita
Overall impression

I’ve been born and grew up in the Chita region (now, the Zabaykalsky Krai, after it was merged with the Aginskiy district). I’ve graduated from the ZabGU (previously, ChitGU), lived here for a year and left. My memories of the city are very nice. There is absolutely no industry in the city, only trade and such.
When compared to my present place of living, flats and utilities cost twice as much, renting a flat costs about the same (thankfully, the realtors in Chita haven’t yet started charging half the rent, but are satisfied with charging 1.5-2 thousand rubles for their services, at least that’s how it was in 2015). The Chinese border is nearby. A city like any other. No KFC and McDonald’s but many Subways. Car jams are unheard of. You can get from anywhere in the city to anywhere else on time.

Ulan-Ude
Overall impression

A wonderful city, as are all in Russia.
Seaside: warm sea is too far, but there are small and larger lakes, suitable for underwater fishing and snowmobile ridding or ice skating. Swimming is possible, at best, in July only.

Sevastopol
Overall impression

The good things:
- frequently visited in summer by IT-specialists of various levels (Yandex, Mail.ru, Kaspersky, Creative People, RedKeds, etc.);
- a clean and warm sea with many various beaches – sand, pebbles, jasper, cliffs, shallow, deep, wild;
- polite people, and not only the military;
- around-the-clock public transportation;
- an incredible co-working space;
- rich cultural life (theatres, museums, numerous exhibitions);
- nature and city architecture (wonderful parks, architecture);
- many shopping centers (various choices at affordable prices).

The sad things:
- healthcare;
- fuel prices;
- the need to use OpenVPN servers to get around the sanctions.
