The Moscow metro received 30 trains on the first contract (1-96) and under the second contract (97-114) there are already two trains. Maybe these trains are for the 8A line.

65193-66385-67193-66386-66387-67194-66388-65194
65195-66389-67195-66390-66391-67196-66392-65196

The meaning of the word "knows" is very extensively. I write, read and speak in three languages (from different language groups), but English is not on this list ))

Petrovsky Park station. It's need to mention - the columns of each station of the Third Interchange Contour will have colour of the Line to which will be possible to commit transfer from this station. For example, here will be interchange to Dynamo station of the Line 2 which is depicted by green colour at the official Metro scheme. Such colour indication is supposed to be useful for orientation of passengers of the Third Interchange Contour.



The station will have fire-protection system which will separate balconies from rest of station in the case of fire alarm.





The image of trees is reference to Petrovsky Park



The stairs to the balconies

The tunnels leads to Nizhnyaya Maslovka station. This station was been supposed to be opened together with opening of the first segment of the Third Interchange Contour. However, its opening was been postponed due to bad geologocal conditions (groundwaters) and deep level. That's why it became necessary to construct ways for the changing of direction of Metro trains in these tunnels beyond Petrovsky Park station (which will be terminus station for some time).

The tunnels leads to TsSKA (CSKA) station





TsSKA (CSKA) station



The decoration of station is dedicated to the Central Sports Club of the Army (CSKA). There are many sport objects near this station for playing of CSKA teams and training of CSKA athletes (football stadium, basketball hall, ice hockey palace, etc).



The station is mainly decorated into red and blue colours (official colours of CSKA teams)

Unlike other stations of the Third Interchange Contour, here will be no transfer to other Line. That's why its columns are faced with black colour (which don't exist at the official Moscow Metro scheme).





Also, there will be placed four bronze sculpturs at the platform of this station (football player, ice hockey player, basketball player and cross-country skier).



There will be three rows of escalators like in the trade center.

Khoroshyovskaya station



The decoration of station is dedicated to the Russian avant-garde of early 20th century (art movements of Suprematism and Constructivism)



Here are names of most famous Russian artists and designers of this era

There will be interchange to the Polezhayevskaya station of the Line 7 (which is depicted by purple colour at the official Metro scheme. That's why columns are faced with marble of similar colour.

Like at CSKA station, there also will be no transfer to other Metro line. That's why columns are faced with white colour.



However, there will be transfer to the station of the Moscow Central Circle with same name.











Except these four stations, there will be also opened Delovoy Tsentr (Business Center) station of the Third Interchange Contour. Until the completing of the central segment of the Line 8, the Third Interchange Contour will be merged with existing western segment of the Line 8 (Line 8A).

So, does this mean that a monolingual English-only speaker could use the Moscow Metro without asking?

Also, how many of the riders speak English reasonably well?

Well, even Russian-speaking passengers (who coming to Moscow from other cities) often needs some time in order to find right direction (as it happens in any more or less extended Metro system).

Speaking about information for English speakers - as far I know, the audio information inside Metro trains at all Metro lines is already duplicating at English. The same with Metro schemes inside the trains and at the vestibules of stations. However, the information at the signs set at the station platforms didn't duplicated yet.

I would not expect that majority of passengers in the Moscow Metro will speak English reasonably well. Yes, many of them learned English at school and institute but, as rule, any information will be sooner or later forgotten if it will not find application in the daily life. If you will try to speak with young people (who educated in post-Soviet period), that your chances to find people who know at least basic English words will be higher.

It's not an English speaking country, so it doesn't need English signs.

But it doesn't matter. All signs in Moscow Metro are completely universal. You don't have to know any language to understand them. If you don't, language won't help you.

English signs in non-Latin alphabet countries are merely to be nice to visitors, no other reason really. Maybe to some extent for safety too so that everyone understands where an exit is in case of emergency.

You don't need to know Russian to understand where exit is. Signs are universal with icons. Even those old without exit icons are easily readable and exit is only word without icon all upper case on old signs, so easily readable as letter-like icon - ВЫХОД.

I can read and speak Russian so for me everything would be clear anyway, but I remember struggling a bit with public transport in Georgia (except metro) with idea where those buses are going. Always needed to ask...

Actually you don't need to speak Russian to use Moscow metro.

All you need is a little knowledge of the Cyrillic alphabet to be able to read the name of the stations.

You have also to pay attention at the voice announcements on the trains because there are no names on the stations platforms so inside the train it's impossible to read the name of the stations.

Anyway it's not so difficult. I used Moscow metro for a week with a very basic knowledge of Russian and I survived.
