The Russian Community in Cyprus

Cyprus has been historically a preferred destination for Russian nationals to relocate to or even use as a second base. The continuously expanding Russian community in Cyprus finds it easy to adjust through the many similarities between the two cultures as well as, amongst others, the wide use of the Russian language, the set up of Russian Schools and Churches and through the presence of Russian media.
