    Russian diaspora in USA

    Post  nastle77 on Mon Nov 13, 2017 6:09 pm

    I live in chicago and we have quite a few russian people here and Ive had positive experiences with them.I wanted to know what do russian people feel about those who immigrate to USA
    Isnt a big russian diaspora in USA useful to russia as a country ? esp when it comes to lobbying and determining foreign policy

    Also is there some kind of a pan slavic society of immigrants in USA ? encompassing russian ukranian polish etc
    a place where they can put aside their "old country" rivalries and bitterness

    For every person there will be a different reason to leave a country... whether it is for money or better weather or to escape from a situation, or the future of their family.

    Many will have a chip on their shoulder regarding where they came from and a desire to integrate by continuing local stereotypes...

    I know for Germany that we have a great russian/soviet diaspora. Most of them are "ethnis germans" living in Russia for hundreds of years and coming back in the 90ies due to better economic situation in Germany.

    And really most of them are loving Russia and the most have good memories from soviet time. At paper they are germans, but most of them are more Russian  Cool  Most germans view "russian germans" and Russia positive, but thanks to mainstream media Russia has a bad touch again in the last years.

    In USA most Russians (immigrating from 90ies to now) are elite...scientist, manager, artists etc. It's not easy for Russians to immigrate to USA. What a Face Problem in USA are stereotypic views, not in urban areas but at countryside. Russians are in Hollywood always evil, bad communists etc.

    Well, a 100 every year with 30% of them being same customers as before isn't a lot. Then again, we don't even know the validity of the report.

    And anyway, you will find stupid people from everywhere. No point worrying about it.

    This is a completely irrelevant issue, as Anatoly Karlin demonstrates:
