Your belongings



• When you first arrive in the RF you need to be well prepared. When moving into new accommodation, don't leave luggage or belongings outside or in an open trunk/boot of a car or taxi.

• Use an ultraviolet pen to mark your valuables with your name and student ID number to enable the police to return them if they are stolen.

• Ask your college if they provide safe storage or consider purchasing a small personal safe to keep your passport, traveller's cheques, wallet/purse and other valuables locked away.

• Make sure your television, video and other valuables can't be seen through a window and never leave cash or credit cards lying around.

• If you go away on holiday, leave your valuables in storage (many educational institutions have a secure storage room) or with a trusted friend.

• If you have a bicycle, try not to leave it unwatched and always lock it up by its frame and wheel to a fixed object when you're not using it. Mark it with your postcode so the police can return it if it is stolen. Remember: in Russia there is lack of bicycle lanes.

• Try not to use a computer case when carrying a laptop; use a less obvious bag to carry it in and think before using it and displaying other expensive items such as watches and jewellery in public places where they could be stolen.

• Don't leave your mobile phone unattended. If it it stolen, immobilise it by calling your telecoms operator. Major Russian telecoms operator will provide you with a new SIM-card free of charge and let you keep the phone number as soon as you have a new tube ready to use.
