...said that the bill would exempt those under 18 years old, over 60 and students at accredited institutions, as well as qualified foreign specialists and their families. The bill would "facilitate the cultural and linguistic adaptation of foreign citizens in Russia,"

That's good.  I could theoretically qualify as a retired person.

However, it is not law yet. the Council has approved the bill - which actually means that they have prepared it to begin its three readings. If it passes the bill after the three readings, the bill will still need presidential signature, etc. So, it's still possible that it will change or disappear as well along its way in the process.

Over 60s are exempt this requirement for residency and citizenship..

Hmm.

Because I now have 2 Russian stepsons excelling as U.S. Marines (and thereby having to relinquish their Russian citizenship as officers), Alla automatically qualifies for a Lifetime Green Card, I can get one as her spouse!

Choices, choices.

I can't imagine retirement without BBC iPlayer, and the NHS to hand.
