Thank you for the links yes I did read that about the 24 hour requirement.
I did a lot of research last night on this and thought I had it all worked out. The reason I am still asking is most of the forums visa questions pertained to people carrying baggage or wanting to know if this applied while staying in the airport.
I did come across others who said you can just get on the train and go right into Moscow and take the train back to the airport and get into terminal F.
I have a great room reserved for $70.00 USD a night on Petrovka only 10 minutes walk from Red Square. Looks like I will not be able to use it.
Seems like such a waste to be there and not see the city :(
