This must be due to local economic conditions in Barnaul.

Hopefully the other city is Novosibirsk, the 3rd largest in the Russian

Using HE.net seems strange. Aren't their tunnel brokers all in California?
You should look for a closer one such as SIXXS

Also, lobby your government. The federal government in Russia has been
taking several actions recently to improve the high tech economy. I believe 
that some of these actions involve IPv6. But one thing is certain, the 
federal government is ready to listen to people who have suggestions 
that can help grow the high tech economy in Russia. You shouldn't have
to move to a city like Akademgorodok or Nizhniy Novgorod to participate.
