Russian minority in Poland
In the past - the times of the Second Polish Republic, partitions of Poland and the Polish-Lithuanian Commonwealth - the number of Russians within Polish borders was much higher, over 100,000. Changing borders (see territorial changes of Poland) and forced resettlement after World War II drastically reduced this number.
One of the most defining cultural characteristics of that minority is their Eastern Orthodox faith.
