Hi thank you for your response. I note that your employment was not in the UK. Apologies I will have to opt out and someone with knowledge of Russian employment laws can pick up. Please don’t reply to this message as it will delay your question being picked up by the next expert, you will need to wait a bit longer for them to contact you. All the best
