    can someone please explain to me how a reasonably young man, back from his army conscription would be able to afford, let alone aquire an appartment for himself and his young wife?
    Because most people did not have this. Most people lived with at least one other family in the same apartment. Please help.

    Hi Doingthingswithabby,
    I know nothing about Russia but logic tells me:
    - knowing the right people
    - being someone’s nephew
    - living in a place/city where nobody wants to live by choice (Siberia?)
    - private rent

    You rent from a person and not from the community.

    Is this familiair to you?
    This is the Olympic Village in Moskow 1980. After this event there were a lot of appartments empty. This could be the explanation for your question.

    That makes sense. And what about owning a car? do the same principals apply?

    Hi! I read your last post about your life as Natasha. A young promising life on the verge of freedom cut short by a jealous husband. You said your parents in that life were fond of your husband. Perhaps they might have paid for the apartment or atleast partially funded the apartment.

    I hadn't thought of that. Although mama and babushka did help look for dishes and furniture. And Vitka gave me a card. Maybe he was connected to someone. He never told me anything and hated when I tried to ask.
