The years shortly after perestroika in former USSR; there was a concern with westerners that Russian girls would leave their country, as there were some attempts from people to escape from communism. The reality was that some people tried to escape communism, but when communist was overturned and movement between countries became more open, but westerns still thought that Russian girls are trying to escape. The impression could have been that love is a secondary reason and the urge to leave a former USSR the primary goal. The truth is that Russian girls never really wanted to leave their family and country except for true love and a good man.
It is the dream of most girls including Russian girls, to get married and have a happy family. Many girls dream about the wedding day, and fantasise about the wedding day since they are young.

Nowadays women all over the world including Russian girls are willing to do that when looking for a partner abroad. The desire to get married and have children has made women including Russian girls to look outside their country for a suitable partner.
The most important reasons why Russian girls are looking for someone abroad in modern Russia are:
The demographic disproportions in Russia with around 88 men for 100 women. It means 12% of Russian women have no chance to find a husband or never marry.
The desire as a woman to marry and have children.
Unacceptable cultural drinking habits of many Russian men.
Unchanged women's liberation.
Perestroika is often argued to be the cause of the dissolution of the Soviet Union, the revolutions of 1989 in Eastern Europe, and the end of the Cold War. It is many years since
1991 when USSR dissolved and influence from outside had some shift in Russian culture especially in the cities. In the communist days the USSR was considered as the most educated country in the world. Since then education levels have changed but women's liberation changed very little if any.
Russians has always studied English at school but during the communist times had very little opportunities to speak English. What they have studied has become absolute and Russians has found it very hard to communicate in English after the communist area. In the modern Russia English is more freely used and Russian girls' English communication skills are on a different level. The result is that the expression of feelings happens much easier and the cultural difference gab has narrowed as a result of better communication skills.
Over the years the stigma for a Russian girl in finding a partner abroad has disappeared. After communism Russian girls have communicated in secrecy until she was sure that she has find an ideal partner, then would have revealed it to her family and friends that she have fell in love with a foreigner and that she will be leaving Russia. Nowadays the stigma in finding and marry a foreigner is something of the past. It happens all over the world and parents are glad when a daughter found the man of her dreams.
