As of now, a surrogacy program in Russia would cost you in between $35,000 and $55,000, which is comes to around 2.5 million rubles (USD $39,000). Still it largely depends on the surrogacy agency or Russian clinics you are dealing with as the cost would include various aspects like IVF, prenatal care, and legal counsel.
