The Russian community in the United Kingdom or Russian Britons consists mainly of British citizens of Russian heritage as well with expatriates and migrants from Russia who reside in the United Kingdom.

Settlement and population numbers[edit]

The 2001 UK census recorded 15,160 residents born in Russia,[2] the 2011 census recorded 36,313 people born in Russia resident in England, 687 in Wales,[3] 2,180 in Scotland[4] and 349 in Northern Ireland.[5]

The Office for National Statistics estimates that 66,000 people born in Russia were resident in the UK in 2016.[6] Estimates published by The Guardian suggest that the resident population of London born in Russia was over 150,000 in 2014,[7] the rise in population has led to jocular nicknames for London such as "Londongrad" and "Moscow-on-the-Thames".[8]

In London and the South East there are a number of Russian schools aimed at transmitting Russian language and culture to the children of Russian immigrant parents.[9]

Education[edit]

The Russian Embassy School in London is a Russian international school in the UK's capital city.
