The main foreign labor market in Turkey is the former USSR countries (Turkmenistan, Azerbaijan, Uzbekistan, Kyrgyzstan, Ukraine, Georgia, Russia, etc.). This is partly due to the fact that Turkish entrepreneurs need employees who speak Russian well. In 2004, the Association of Russian Culture was even created, which helps emigrants find work in the country and adapt faster. Branches of the organization are located in large cities - Alanya, Antalya, Istanbul and Izmir.
