First of all do you knwo if you have some restrictions in size (USPS) to send stuff to russsia??? Rules have changed and now you cant send big stuff to some countries.
Where in VA are you? I can help you out with the packing if you cant figure it out how to do it right (PM if you like), just in case get a few news papers, a bike box (needs to be cut), good packing tape, a wheel axle with cones unless u have a plastic spacer or something but i know another trick using poliestyrene...
If you still have or you can get some pieces of a tv poliestyrene molding for example (computer, stereo or something) u can use that to keep the frame super firm in the box.
I have sent a few bikes to Japan and S/America with no problems so far... let me know if you need some help hope you live in NVA...
