As far as I understand, that's not possible under the Schengen rule that one must be out of the Schengen area for 90 days (3 months) after having lived in the area for 90 days. Two-three days of stay out of the area and coming back to stay again for 90 days is out of the question!

I am sure I am not wrong on this, but of course, one can always look at migri.fi

migri.fi deals with residence permits, um.fi has the visa stuff: http://um.fi/public/default.aspx?conten ... ture=en-US

noorfin99, your brother has visa, it is meant for visiting. "Multiple-entry visa is granted for several consecutive visits to the Schengen area. The total duration of the stays may not exceed the number of days stated on the visa sticker, that is, up to 90 days in a 180-day period. A multiple-entry visa is valid for a maximum of five (5) years." Your brother can go to Russia for 2 days and come back, but he can't stay over 90 days in a 180-day period. See the um.fi page I linked.

Visa is for visiting, Residence Permit for residing.
