Are there electrical outlets in Russian trains?

In first class, there is usually an electrical outlet in every room, in addition to low power outlets in each bathroom. 

In second class, there are generally two sockets in the corridor, in addition to low power outlets in each bathroom. In some older carriages, you may only find one outlet. This will be in the corridor, at the top of the bathroom door. In more modern carriages you may find one or two outlets in each compartment. 

In third class, you will find power outlets in the corridor, or, in the modern trains, there will be power outlets in each compartment. 

Outside of first class, the available outlets are in high demand. If you are able, we would advise taking spare batteries for your electrical devices where possible, or investing in a portable travel charger so that you do not need to rely on the power outlets. Taking a travel adapter with multiple USB charging ports is also useful, and a great way to make new friends if you allow other passengers to use it!
