Considering the sanctions against Russia and the big drop of Russian currency, Rubles, I think now is a very good time for doing LL in Russia.
You are right, it should be, however, the doctors in Volgograd keep raising prices regardless. I guess it all depends on what time of the year you are doing the surgery in. April-June tend to be the slowest months and you are most likely to get a better deal. September-January are the busiest and tend to command a higher price.
That's at least from my experience in Volgograd with Dr. Barinov
