Prices have pretty much evened out in Moscow to the Washington DC ones.

Outside of large cities - could be cheaper.

But diplomats get free housing don't they?

I am surprised the company is sending you to Russia, because you are an idiot.

A good place to start your research would be

Since the US Government knows how much it costs for meals and other incidental expenses when traveling to just about anyplace in the world, please check

Try the Russian Embassy. You didnt say if you had "diplomatic status".
If cost of living is too high, be sure and take plenty of cartons of Salem cigarettes. Reeses Peanut Butter Cups are popular too. Act suspicious and carry a
Walther PPK. Then gorgeous women will be following you around all the
time and using sex to get you to talk.

The word "attacked" says it all...god forbid somone just comment on a topic...it's always an "attack"...must be the excessive testosterone and pherimones in 20 somethings that make this behavior acceptable.
