Hello, nobody knows. In Moscow official quarantine is until 14 of June. No information about flights.

I sincerely hope so, but right now the schedule for opening of borders is not clear.
Most likely, more details will be available in the end of June.

It really depends, but it is likely that the border will be opened soon. However, it is also probable that they will close it down again if the coronavirus situation further complicates after reopening. You will have to stay in quarantine and afaik they will ask you to pay for the expense to quarantine (please correct me if I am wrong, my information was from March and it may not be up to date now).

More likely the Russian borders will be opened in July, however, there is a mandatory two-week quarantine for everyone arriving from abroad. So I’d suggest a last minute booking for you once these limitations are waved

Hey! Right now it is difficult to say, probably yes, but you will have to stay under observation for two weeks in sanatorium provided by government. At least those are requirements for now for russian citizens that come back to the country.

Thank you for answering my question.
I have flights booked for the 7th August.
The idea was to spend 10 days between Moscow and St Petersburg.
I need a visa as i am from Ireland.
So it seems unlikly that i will be able to sight see.
It seems it wont be happening, as i need to book a hotel to get a Visa.
Thanks again for your help.
JJ.
