I arrived to Sankt Petersburg and realized I did not bring my electric converter to plug my US electric items. Can I purchase a converter in Sankt Petersburg and if so where can I purchase it?
If you are staying at a hotel, ask at the desk. They often have converters for loan to guests.
If you are not at a hotel, most luggage stores carry them or if you are near a department store, the luggage department may have them. Ask locally and someone should be able to help you.
Good luck. I did the same thing once. Frustrating.
