Moscow

Budget Mid-range There is a big need for mid-range accommodations in Moscow, but nevertheless the curious traveler can find some useful accommodations. Stay safe Moscow historically enjoyed a low crime rate. However, since the collapse of the Soviet Union, the crime rate throughout Russia skyrocketed and this terrible reputation lingers, despite much recent improvement. Drunk people and the police are the most likely sources of problems. A lot of policemen are corrupt, and it is best to avoid them. While traveling in Moscow, as in the rest of Russia, you should always have your passport with you. If you look non-white, your papers may get checked more often than otherwise. Police may demand to see your documents to check if you have obtained registration papers within seven business days of your arrival into Moscow. Most policemen do not speak a word of English, but will let you know if your papers are not in order and if you must go with them to the police precinct. A bribe of about 500 rubles (more if you look like you have more) should make them leave you alone, though if you are reasonably sure your papers are in order, get out your mobile phone and call your embassy. Most corrupt policemen will be frightened enough to let you go before you dial the number. Non-white people should be especially vigilant since the number of violent attacks by skinheads is prevalent, and most minorities are likely to be stopped for document checks by the police. Women should take caution walking alone late at night since they may receive unwanted attention from drunk men. Women should also stay clear of large companies of men in front of bars, restaurants, etc. It is best to walk with a friend if possible. Streets can become very slippery in winter. Wear shoes or, even better, boots with decent grip to prevent twisted ankles. Ice patches can be hard to spot. A waterproof raincoat is also sensible. The city's rapidly expanding economy has left traffic poorly handled, and accident rates are very high. Stay safe. If you need help with translation, ask students or pupils. Because there were problems in the 20th century with learning foreign languages, young people are more likely to be able to help you. Connect Mobile In Moscow there are three main GSM operators (MTS, Beeline, Megafon), and they often have offers that give you a SIM card, including 3G internet, for free or at least very cheap. Even if you are only staying for a short time in Russia, you should consider buying a local pay-as-you-go SIM card, as it may be cheaper than just a few minutes of roaming. Almost any European phone, and those from the U.S. which work on a GSM network (T-Mobile, or AT&T), carry the "tri-band" or "World phone" designation and had been unlocked, should work on the Russian standard (if yours is not one of those, a basic new candybar will still run you considerably less than $50 without a contract). If you buy a SIM card from a shop you'll need your passport for identification. It only takes five minutes to do the paperwork and it will cost less than $10. You will receive a number in the "mobile" area code, starting with 9, which has more expensive rates for calls to and from landlines (and from abroad; in compensation, the tariffs for calls to phones on the same network are usually reduced), and your card will be preloaded with a small initial minute allowance. Incoming calls are free (or at least are supposed to be, by law; some companies are trying to find ways around it). Top off at the stores of your chosen company, at shops selling phones, or at newer automated kiosks which accept utility payments (they look like short, squat ATMs with large touchscreens, and display, among others, logos of the mobile operators); the latter charge a small commission fee and accept cash or (rarely) credit cards. Be careful when entering the number: it is possible to add airtime to any phone, not only your own. For calls abroad there are different inexpensive pre-paid cards (e.g. Arktel), which you

The TTC had already started building a streetcar line that would extend from the end of the subway at Kennedy station (Kennedy (TTC)) to the Scarborough City Centre, a low-density route passing through industrial land. They were not interested in changing to the ICTS for this route, until the Ontario government, who provided about 80% of the capital costs, stepped in and demanded the ICTS be used.

Spanish Civil War A famous conflict which exhibits patterns of a proxy war was the Spanish Civil War. The conflict that started between the Second Spanish Republic and Francisco Franco's National Sindicalists soon involved Nazi Germany and Fascist Italy (Kingdom of Italy (1861–1946)) on the Spanish Nationalist side and the Soviet Union help on the Spanish Republic's side. This war served as a useful proving ground for both the Axis (Axis powers) and the Soviets to test equipment and tactics that would later be employed in the Second World War (World War II). Cold War Proxy wars were common in the Cold War, because the two nuclear-armed superpowers (the Soviet Union and the United States) did not wish to fight each other directly, since that would have run the risk of escalation to a nuclear war (Nuclear warfare) (see mutual assured destruction). Proxies were used in conflicts such as Afghanistan (Soviet War in Afghanistan), Angola (Angolan Civil War), Korea (Korean War), Vietnam (Vietnam War), the Middle East, and Latin America.
