A big portion of the Armenian population travels to Russia every year to work there, earn money and thus support their families in the homeland.

Unfortunately, for the country during the last few years more people have gone to Russia than finally return. Through the calculation, it comes out that currently there are around hundred thousand Armenian families in Russia.

Armenians are attracted to Russia firstly because they know the Russian language well, secondly, they can enter Russia without visa, and thirdly, there are more vacancies for them in Russia.
