If you think about how one qualifies to emigrate to the USA from Russia, it would make sense. They perhaps claim asylum. It's tough otherwise to qualify for a Green Card, if you think about it. They would have to have family here that they're joining (and under the Soviet Union, people could not emigrate except through defection), they possess skills in high demand or wealth to start a business or marry an American. Those are the usual ways. Asylum on the basis of religious persecution is the other. Gays are also using that route to the USA too as Russia is clearly hostile towards them.
