All of the sudden our Slavic brothers from Mongolian steppes are facing the biggest economical crisis since the collapse of the Soviet Union.
I'm not kidding you.
Oil falling to its historic low and Dutch disease made them within some weeks to the "sick man" of EuroAsia.
So get ready for deja vu from the 90-ties - Russian street vendors on every corner, cheap liquor and cigarettes smuggled from Kaliningrad and last but not least ... oh I'll rather try to be nice in these hard times.

To me Russians are more than welcome in Poland. They are really hard working people.

Though they will steal the jobs of hard working Poles and newspapers will have to plead in print to them to curb their drinking and driving ways.

Naah.. There's already huge amount of people from eastern countries living in Poland. They are doing pretty well. They work hard and never say no if asked to work overhours.

According to wikipedia:
50 000 Belorussians
31 000 Ukrainians
6 000 Russians

these Russians are very welcome.

I think there'd be problems in bars between Russian women and Polish. They both have temperaments.

The Russian accent is quite sexy :)

These figures are totally underestimated and refer to permanent (registered) residents only.
However the majority of immigrants from the former Soviet Union are still Ukrainians and Belorussians.

I expect an influx of political asylum seekers from Russia just now, before and after the final collapse of Putin's regime.

According to the same study there were less than 1000 of Jews or so (for sure less than Russians). Can you believe that?

These figures are totally underestimated

Most likely.

These are the numbers of Polish citizens declaring foreign nationality...

In case of Jews there are between 10 and 100 thousand of them, depends on one's definition of a Jew...

See we are in EU so we could go any where we want too, others should not it all should be controlled a bit more!! I see and understand the point of people immigrating to make their life’s better and for their family. But one to many of then do that then they will try to bring their culture over and rules and they will start complaining that the new home land is discriminating and rules get bend for those assholes!! If you immigrate to new world people should learn their language, religion, culture, rules and all that things new world has to offer!!

Of course there's more of them, especially Jews. But many feel Polish today and that's how they describe themselves during national census. It's their right.

I wish there were more guys like you. Too many people form enclaves abroad, most nations' people do it.

It's worth trying to break down some barriers too. I vividly remember one of my first nights in Izumo, Japan. It's a city but highly rural. I was with my Canadian roommate and speaking English. The Japanese at the bar were frowning at us. After a few more drinks and some laid back behaviour from us, they invited us to do some karaoke with them.

Hell yeah, it was fun.

I'm just listening to Poles helping the Russians on TVN Fakty. The way it should be.

Borrka, just in case, every kind of paranoia, including your special anti-Russian form, is highly treatable :)
Well, I am Russian and if I decided to immigrate, Poland would not even be on my wish list. The same applies to the majority of Russians. Canada, Australia, New Zealand, Germany, USA... and Israel of course, many Russians have relatives and friends there.but Poland???? what's the point of going to another poor country, even if it belongs to EU????

There are many nouveau-riche in Poland. It is attracting an increasing level of investment from abroad.

increasing level of investment from abroad

What growth areas do you see, Seanus?
Seanus 15 | 19,706

Seriously, road and rail will be the biggies. Tourism has attracted many but recreation must accompany this. This will be a key priority in the coming months and years.

I think it was the accounting giant, Ernst&Young, who came to the finding that Poland is the 7th most attractive country to invest in, IN THE WORLD.

Not all of them are Polish. But this would be an area to invest in.

I just didn't want to voice that...

The main reason why Russians move there is usually that they love Poland and want to feel like at home among other Slavs. Money are unlikely to be a point there.

I never believed in "westernity" of Poland when I was living there as a kid.

Until I left Poland for one of small western European countries and saw that they are technologically back behind us for good decade already (I mean e-banking, internet, IT services etc). No kidding.

Really? Which small western European country would that be? I know Poland went full steam ahead with the EU membership, but I can't believe any country in Europe really stays behind...ok, maybe Albania (just kidding).

Some e-stuff I saw when in Europe last May I did not see in the US.
