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
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.
Problem in USA are stereotypic views, not in urban areas but at countryside. Russians are in Hollywood always evil, bad communists etc.
