4. Russian Speaking Immigrants: 1990-2020. Prior to the dissolution of the Soviet Union, a small number of ""Refusniks"" had managed to reach Israel or western countries. With the breakup of the FSU, almost a million Russian speakers who had lived under a totalitarian regime arrived in Israel and had to adjust to an open democratic capitalist society. While the elderly often found it difficult in Israel, the younger generation adapted quickly, retaining many of their cultural traits, and simultaneously contributing in significant ways to the development of their new home.
