Getting sick when abroad is no fun. Having to take care of yourself is no fun either. However, when the situation arises, a fast recuperation would be ideal. So how do you describe your symptoms and communicate your questions? Let's take a look.

So, you’ve come to Russia or Ukraine, Belarus or any of the other countries of the former Soviet Union. You’ve had some excursions, visited museums, taken pictures of the main local sights and tasted local delicacies.

And all would be fine, but suddenly you aren’t feeling so good. Then you realize: you urgently need to visit a pharmacy.

In some pharmacies, the pharmacists speak English. These pharmacies are mainly located in the central parts of the big cities and have signs saying "We speak English." However, if you aren’t lucky enough to find such a pharmacy, then you’ll need to go to a Russian speaking one and explain your problem.
