Have you ever thought about moving to live in America? Consider from different angles the life of Russians in the United States, their salaries abroad, the education system and other aspects.
Emigration of Russians
The first wave began in 1917, when over 6 years the country left about 2 million people for the following reasons:
- Civil War;
- October Revolution;
The second wave was connected with the Second World War of 1942. Then the Russians moved mostly to the USA and Canada, and these were prisoners of war, refugees and people who had crossed over to Germany.
The third wave was for the period 1966-1985. For all this time, more than a million people have left the country, with the majority of them were creative intelligentsia and representatives of art.
A fairly low lifestyle in Russia, compared with the West, forced from 1990 to 2000 to leave the country a million residents.
According to statistics, from 2001 to 2011, 1 250 000 people moved into the country. Most often these are representatives of the middle class, business and youth.
The most common reasons for moving now are:
- Work and self-realization.
At the moment, the number of Russian emigrants abroad is more than 10 million.
