The radical changes that occurred in the early 1990s and led to the collapse of the USSR, left outside the Russian Federation about 30 million people – representatives of the people and ethnic groups historically living on the territory of Russia. Deep socio-economic crisis and the growth of separatist sentiment in the newly independent States in the 1990s – early 2000s led to stress migration of the Russian and Russian-speaking population from the former Soviet republics to Russia. Note that about 70% of Russians left in Russia, were of working age. To date, despite a General tendency of reduction in the number of Russian-speaking population in the CIS and Baltic countries, the rate of decline is gradually slowing down.
