    Introduction

                 


      The Russian ethnic group in China has a population of 15,609, according to the year 2000 census. They live mainly in Yili, Tacheng, Altay and Urumqi in Xinjiang Uygur Autonomous Region as well as a small number of Russian people in Heilongjiang Province and Inner Mongolia Autonomous Region. They are a colorful people. The Russ ethnic minority descends from Russian immigrates to China during the 18th century. More entered various parts of Xinjiang after the 19th century, and even after the October Revolution in 1917. The Russ speak and write Russian, use their own language and written script, which belongs to the Slavic group of the Indo-European language family. But most also use Chinese language and script in social and official activities. Most of the Russian people believe in the Catholic Orthodox Church. A few of this minority group of people believe in Christianity.
    Russians living in towns engage in various repairing businesses, handicrafts, transport, horticulture, animal husbandry and beekeeping and other commercial occupations. Those who live in the countryside are most likely to support themselves by farming and animal husbandry. They are especially good at horticulture and beekeeping.
