Russians in the U.S.
Some 3 million Americans reported as having Russian ancestry in 2013, according to the U.S. Census Bureau. The same year, an additional 391,000 foreign-born Americans were born in Russia; an unknown number of Russians was born in other countries of the former Soviet Union. Between 1999 and 2014, 206,000 citizens of the Russian Federation were granted residency in the U.S., according to the Migration Policy Institute.
Most immigrants from Russia settled and continue to settle in the New York City metropolitan area. Two in three residents of Nikolaevsk, Alaska, claim Russian ancestry; other municipalities in Alaska, which was once a Russian Empire territory, also have a large percentage of Russian Americans, as do. several towns in North Dakota, Ohio, and Pennsylvania. The Portland, Oregon, metropolitan area has about 100,000 Russian-speaking immigrants as well.
Russians started to arrive to the U.S. in great numbers in the late 19th century, most escaping religious persecution. This first wave of immigration continued through World War I. The next wave arrived after the 1917 October Revolution, yet another during the Soviet era, and the final wave of immigration came in the 1990’s.
Prominent Russian Americans include tennis player Maria Sharapova, Google co-founder Sergey Brin, authors Gary Shteyngart and Isaac Asimov, actors Yul Brynner and Peter Falk, musicians Regina Spektor and Alina Simone, composer Sergey Rachmaninoff, helicopter inventor Igor Sikorsky, and many others.
