    It's perfectly possible - if you are Russian, or of any other nationality that does not require a visa. If your nationality requires one, then the question is rather, how easy is it to enter Russia outside of an official entry point? Maybe you could slip across somewhere in the forest along the long Finnish border... but is it really worth the risk of being arrested and deported?

    I think the title of your question says it all really.

    There is absolutely no border control on the trains between Belarus and Russia.

    The only way to get arrested is to mask himself as Usama bin Laden and yell "Allahu Akbar" loudly around the Russain-Belarus border, while carrying an AK-47.

    What will happen later (checking in into a hotel without visa or getting checked on the street by the police and having no visa) is a different question.

    What is easier and cheaper: a Belarus or a Russian visa is a different question. From what I know, Belarus visa requires somewhat less paperwork but is very-very expensive.

    Petropavlovsk is a unique city which belongs to both domestic Kazakh and domestic Russian network, pretty much like Salzburg (German-Austrian), Geneve (French-Swiss), Domodossola (Swiss-Italian) and some others. There is probably some way around Petropavlovsk - if you are native Russian speaker.

    Otherwise as a foreigner in Petropavlovsk you don't even need to mask yourself as Usama bin Laden, you will get attention automatically. ;-)

    >>>Nothing is impossible to a willing heart!

    C'mon - it's VT where many people look for something special. Running in the corridor of a MECT-36 train car somewhere around Orsha masked as Usama bin Laden or Doku Umarov, wielding AK-47 and yelling "Allahu Akbar" would mean a priceless experience you can't ever get if you have a visa.

    The worst is if O.P. would have, say, Israeli, Chilean, Argentine or Brazil passport.
    Than all he needs is to take a nap in the train, because these and some few other Western citizens do not need a visa to Russia. Really boring experience.

    Priceless experience?

    Look, bro, I didn't quite get the point of this,
    "Running in the corridor of a MECT-36 train car somewhere around Orsha masked as Usama bin Laden or Doku Umarov, wielding AK-47 and yelling "Allahu Akbar" would mean a priceless experience"...
    Don't you see the country's name starts with "R" and not with "A" as "Afghanistan"?...:-)

    Yeah - just "Na idiotskiy vopros - idiotsiy otvet".

    The original post did somehow sound like a bad joke to begin with. O.P. gave a proper title to his question. In that spirit a few of us got lose.
