With the largest Russian-speaking and ethnic Russian minorities in the EU, the Baltic republics have attracted attention from numerous academics and specialists with an interest in the subject of minority integration and the limited ability to integrate Russian minorities. The initial premise for this article, however, is that the political dimensions and those relating to ordinary economic interactions can be considered separately. Consequently, the limitations on the political rights of part of the population are not expressly reflected in daily life, at least not among all Russian-speakers, who may in fact be better integrated than prevailing opinion suggests. Among the younger generation especially, there is no sense of “going back home” when they visit Russia, but rather a sense of belonging somewhere in between. Interestingly, this attitude seems to go together with a bias against the state, seen as politically oppressive and as having little regard for the Russian language and culture, but also with recognition of the economic opportunities it offers compared to Russia.
