On a side note. Are teams from Moscow, St. Petersburg, Kazan and prehaps Sibir the only ones who will face dificulties maintaining a natural pitch from December - March? Or are there other areas of Russia with top teams in them who have a harsh climate?
The climate in the Siberian capital Novosibirsk (where FC Sibir plays) is more harsher. There are no other top teams who plays in the cities with worser climate. The weather conditions in Moscow, St. Petersburg and Kazan are almost similar. The better weather conditions are in Krasnodar Region and Caucasus (such as Krasnodar, Rostov-on-Don, Sochi, Makhachkala, Grozny, Nalchik, Vladikavkaz).

So how many teams in, say, the top two divisions have problems with the climate? Zenit, the Moscow teams (3?), Rubin. Anyone else?

Almost all clubs have problems in winter period (December-March) except the clubs from the cities which I mentioned above (Anzhi Makhachkala, Kuban Krasnodar, Terek Grozny, FC Krasnodar, FC Rostov, Alania Vladikavkaz and Spartak Nalchik).

Moscow teams usually play in Luzhniki when the weather is bad (it has artificial pitch). Sometimes problems occure in Samara. There is also an artificial grass in Perm (FC Amkar) and Saransk (FC Mordovia) so it's ok to play there in the winter although climate there is terrible too

But Luzhniki won`t be available after September, right? What will they do after that?

They finally will have to work hardly to keep their pitches :D

Actually, Spartak will move to Lokomotiv Stadium and CSKA and Dynamo will play in Khimki. Those arenas have natural grass so you're right, it won't be that easy to play there

Actually, Luzhniki is home stadium only for FC Spartak and CSKA Moscow. Dynamo plays in neighboring city of Khimki, and Lokomotiv have own stadium.

So, Spartak will have own stadium very soon, and CSKA will be play at other stadium (at Khimki as one of variants).

I thought CSKA played at the stadium in Khimki, read something about that one or two years ago, that they didnt want to play at Luzhniki any more?
