i've no idea why you feel that question relevant but lemme reply to it with a couple questions of my own.
I thought it was relevant because you argued that there is something in Russian society that forces them to accept totalitarian rulers as heroes.
I figured since that is not true at least for Russian Jews, it's just a matter of decision, not force.
how many russian jews remain? what prevented them from leaving after the ussr imploded? do they consider themselves essentially russian or essentially jews?
There remain anywhere between a few hundred thousand and up to three million. Nobody knows. Some have left for Israel, some have left for Germany (which also grants citizenship to Jews), some have stayed.
Most of them consider themselves Jewish rather than Russian. In the Soviet Union people were organised according to nationality. You could be Russian, Ukrainian, Lithuanian, Jewish, or one of the other nationalities. (You could be more than one, I suppose.)
(Why would they consider themselves Russian?)
Each of the nationalities had their own territory, a member republic of the SU, one of the republics within Russia, or a territory or province. You didn't have to live in the territory assigned to you nationality. The Jewish territory was/is in eastern Siberia, bordering China or Mongolia. (Very few Jews live there. The official language is Yiddish.)
are non-jewish russians (nearsighted or not) eligible for adoption by the state of israel?
