Pickpocketers, etc., Moscow: 20 reviews and 7 photos
Much moreso than in St. Petersburg, we saw beggars in Moscow. Coming from Toronto, where the downtown core has a league of squee-gee kids, it didn't seem overwhelming, however, the demographics are different. . .we weren't used to seeing elderly women begging.
As is always the case, it helps to be prepared mentally as to how you want to handle this situation. You might decide to give your change whenever you have any, or to make a larger donation to an agency ~ some peace of mind can be had from thinking this through ahead of time.
