There are kem'at no mekomos hakedoshim in Moscow or nearby, if you are thinking of cemeteries etc. (in the Malakhovka beis hakvaros is Rav Dubin of Riga and the "Chaya Olam Nata") but there are many live mekomos hakdoshim in Moscow. There are very nice Kehillos there, Chabad and others, Yeshivas, Kollelim etc. Make sure to check out the restaurant on the top floor of Bolshoi Bronnaya Synagogue, of Rav Yitzchak Kogan.

Are you the producer of the flyer with photoshopped pics of Gedolim? I saw one yesterday in Yerushalayim...

Some ____ from the"talmidim" of the Saba made stickers/flyers against Gedolei Yisroel "mefursamim shel she...". They used photoshop...

In some countries that require visas, they allow for a 24-48 hour exception in certain cities (PVG is one)
Remember this is only for onward travel, if you're going back to where you came from in 24 hours they won't let you in.

I hear the Chinese immigration have become very strict lately.
