Personally I wouldn't' bring a scanner.. It'll be a useful as a paperweight as the comms will mostly be in Russian unless they have a Foreign visiting team. Plus in all reality.. I'm not even sure if a scanner is allowed in Russia. I did not see a single scanner being used at all in 2017. I left mine in the UK after RIAT last time, I don't fancy a Russian jail cell so didn't take the chance.
Fair enough. I'll leave it at home then.
I did a little searching and based on an older reference it was legal to own a scanner in Russia, but you may or may not require a permit to actually operate it. Regardless, especially coming from North America I won't chance it.
