Abstract

The paper discusses self-consciousness of Russian-speaking Koreans residing at present in Korea. A special attention is paid to their adaptation to new environment and changes in ethnic consciousness caused by this fact. Migration with ensuing adaptation to quickly changing conditions in their historical homecountry might contribute to strengthening ethnic self-consciousness or to cause shift in identity close to antipathy for their home-country. Empirical base of the study are survey data done by the author.
