It’s Time to Come Home
John Kopiski is a British-born business executive who came to Moscow for a 3-day business trip and ended up staying for more than 20 years.
“I arrived here in December 1991. I went to some import-export companies, two bars, a hotel and Old Arbat (a street in central Moscow). And in this brief period I felt that I could start a new life here. Not a new business, a new life,” John Kopiski said.
Mr. Kopiski became the second British citizen to obtain Russian citizenship in 1993. He became an Orthodox shortly after. See more here.
