There are 8,900 people of Russian origin living in Sweden.[citation needed]

The Russian Orthodox Church in Sweden have parishes in the cities of Gothenburg, Stockholm, Västerås, Uppsala, Karlstad, Umeå and Luleå, where many Russian first and second generation immigrants live. Most of them arrived in Sweden in the 1920s after the Russian Civil War. A second, smaller wave came after World War II. An increasing number of Russians have moved to Sweden since the 1990s, with more than 900 per year receiving Swedish citizenship since 2011.[1]
