    Prescription free medications available at Moscow pharmacies - the pros and cons. Are disabled people getting more attention from the city authorities? Are average Muscovites concerned about Ebola? And should Russian people celebrate Halloween?

    Foreigners in Moscow have noted that one of the perks of living here is the amount of medicines available at drug stores without a prescription. This saves time and money. But is there a risk involved and how dangerous is self-medication? Is this a problem in Moscow?
