In Moscow 1 room apartment will cost you not less than 500 USD per month, in any other city in Russia you can find apartment at the same condition for 200-300 USD, in Ukraine for 150-200 USD per month. 3 rooms flat in Ukraine will cost you $ 400 USD and more. You can rent it for several people and split the bill.
