I don't know how it take for Moscow to schedule an appointment , but on consideration three weeks is not long , hold on you will definitely get your date for interview schedule.

At the end of the month, it's possible to not have any available times.  They may not update the calendar for next month until the very end of this month.  You can always email and ask to setup an appointment, or ask an estimate when new dates will be added to the calendar should they be unable to manually help you.

Moscow is very unpredictable. Early this year it was taking a very long time and lots of people were talking about transferring. Then interview availability was better through November. And now there haven't been any slots available in December.

thanks for the support . I was thinking to transfer to Kiev. I heard about it take at least 3 months to transfer the file for the new embassy.  I think is better just wait. and might new slots will be open in Moscow.  I just hope will be soon, so far I didn't see no opens, if you know anything let  me know. I just hate wait...

     I will wait and see . I might be lucky and get  interview in January. I have been calling everyday and checking on the traveldocs and so far no available appointments,  I didn't know that I can email and request the interview date.. for what email I have to sent??? I am just tired of wait and have no idea when is the next open slots for the interview..  do you think on the December something will be open??  because since November 30th until today was nothing open...  I heard if request the transfer to kiev it might be longer?   I heard take at least 3 months to transfer the file,, so what do you think I should do ??? when was your interview how long did you have to wait ???

Kiev is one alternative.  Depending on your location within Russia, Ulaanbataar (Mongolia) might be another alternative.

 

If I were you, I'd contact Kiev, Ulaanbataar, or both, to ask what the procedure is (and the timing) for transferring your file.

Since a file transfer takes a few weeks it will be 2019 before that happens
