The number 1.6 million may seem staggering but you should take into account that this is barely 1-2% of Russian population leaving in almost 2 decades. For comparison, more than 1.5 million Ukrainians asked for Russian citizenship since 2014. That’s on top of many more, who are forced to seek living outside Ukraine in the West. Screenshot 2019-02-22 at 14.00.33.png

Also questionable is the ethnic make-up of the emigrants…

I understand that the Atlantic Council wants to present Putin’s Russia as a terrible place that people are fleeing, where in actuality people are fleeing pro-Western Ukraine which has a full support of the United States, and think tanks like the Atlantic Council.
