Hi I was wondering what the average salary is for native English editors with fluent Russian working for companies in Moscow. Is it standard for things like the work visa and insurance to be included as part of the employment package?

Depends on the experience and qualifications, as well as which industry the job is in. NGOs pay less; law firms, etc., are the higher end of the pay scale. i don't know what the current pay scale is, but a few years ago, salaries ranged from US$2k to ~$5k per month (or more depending upon expertise, experience and industry).

that said, work permit / visa support should be a standard part of any employment offer and contract, and local insurance at a minimum is also required (as far as i understood it).
