When accepting an international assignment often a big concern is leaving behind home networks and friends. However with a little effort it can be easy to reforge these relationships as many expats are already living and working in Moscow and are ready to welcome a new comer.
Likewise as more international firms develop offices in Moscow the expat community equally blossoms with a range of groups and volunteer opportunities to assist international families to make friends quickly and easily. There are a number of international women’s organizations along with nation specific groups too.
