Russians are ready to go to live abroad

22% of Russians in a recent poll would like to go abroad – and this is the highest figure since 2011-2013, at the level of historical (since 1990) records

Most of those who want to leave are among young people: 48% in the 18-24 cohort. Less than the record 52% of the end of 2019, but well above the 30-40% typical for the period 2012-2019. The share of those wishing to leave the country in the 25-39 cohort has been growing steadily since 2017 and has repeated the historical maximum of 33%. In the 40-54 cohort, in just 4 years, there has been a twofold increase: now 21% of those surveyed at this age are ready to leave the country. And this is a record high. The only age cohort where there is no height is 55+

What is also interesting is the almost complete absence of undecided, there are about 1% of them – against 20% in 1990 and 7-8% for most of the last decade
