In connection with this recurring question I keep on running into www.turflot.ru. Offices in Moscow (Bolshaya Ordynka 21, Metro Tretyakovskaya) and St. Petersburg (Spassky pereulok 14/35, M. Sennaya Ploshad). In Moscow it is several minutes from the apartment I have available for rent. They cater to the local market but if you ask nicely, with your request accompanied with a small contribution to
prolong my agon to keep my outfit afloat I’ll deal with them on your behalf, which is probably easier for everyone concerned.
