Hi, I've currently based in the UK, but have been shortlisted for a position based in Moscow. I haven't gotten the job yet, but it's looking good, and I wanted to start preparing to negotiate my contract. 

I wanted to know if there would be any additional costs built into housing other than just rent and utiltiies. In the UK we have to pay council tax, is there anything like that in Russia? Furthermore, how much could I expect to pay for a fully-furnished one bedroom in a good area?
