Russia spans Eastern Europe and Northern Asia and is the largest country in the world by land mass. It has a population of over 145 million. Due to its size, its climate and economy are diverse but fertility clinics in Russia are located in the major cities of Moscow and St Petersburg which are accessible to international patients. English is spoken at the majority of fertility clinics in Russia. According to the most recent official statistics over 3 million patients travel to Russia for medical treatment each year although the exact number that travel for IVF treatment is unknown.
Fertility legislation is liberal, and many treatments are available at the discretion of individual fertility clinics in Russia.
