I assume that they mean with "foreigners" mainly former Sovjet Republics?

I suppose no citizenship will be required BUT it is for Captains only.
If you are ready to live in country with half a year dirty and freeze, with unreliable ATC, aerodromes and weather reporting, if you are ready for single pilot operation with ex-military with about zero flight time or student pilot as F/O A320 or 330 and ready for your contract considered by management as just very conditional.... So in that case you are very welcome...
Just insider note...

Wow, I can hardly wait . . . think how easy/quick my working day will now be. No pesky delays briefing/planning . . . no more Winter delays due de-icing & Yeah ! a safety Dept that will back me up & issue press releases confirming I was 100% correct in my assertion "it will blow off".

No more diversions due to bad weather. . . . . "Minimums" what ? Cat3 ? hell no, we are at least Cat5 (or will be once suitably "refreshed" )

Where do I apply Comrade, free voddie/tottie & no repercussions for reducing my briefing to "Standard Non Standard".

Am I being slightly cynical/stereotyping here ? well yes. . . but only "slightly".

not all - or even most - Russian pilots are a demented bunch of alcoholics

they fly a horrible mixture of aircraft, some of great antiquity, into a lot of remote places which are short on just about everything we take for granted in the west. Even major airports show the result of chronic underinvestment for 20+ years. Overall they do a good job.

Management is generally poor or worse

If you do go there face up to the fact that its going to be a lot tougher than anything we normally see in Europe, Australia or N America

Any Western pilot that is happy about the prospect of working in Russia, needs to visit their nearest psychologist immediately, because your clearly living in fantasy land!! If that doesn't work a few trips to DME & SVO will soon bring you back to reality.....

The level of ignorance expressed by some here puzzles me.

Russia may not be top of the world aviationwise compared to EASA-land but they seem to have decent operartions if you count in companies like Aeroflot, Transaero, S7 Airlines, Ifly, Nordwind, Ural, Orenair, etc which operate modern western fleets who will be the main companies I can think of which need western pilots. I know a good safety culture and proper maintenance is much more important than factory fresh Boeings or Airbusses (see Indonesia) but why not give them a chance...

Sorry Pro but you're completely incorrect. And I'm speaking from first hand experience as both a passenger on Aeroflot/Transaero and operating with all Russian crews.

Russia approves foreign pilots hire.

Russian government (legal commission) approved amendments in Air Code, legalizing foreign pilots employment for local airlines.

Правкомиссия одобрила допуск иностранных пилотов в авиакомпании России :: Экономика :: Top.rbc.ru
( in Russian)

My question to US, German, British or anyone of you - will you come to fly in Russia ?
