Russian culture has a long and rich cultural history, steeped in literature, ballet, painting, and classical music. About 80% of the population of contemporary Russia are Russians. The remaining 20% are members of more than 180 other nationalities. Despite processes of ethnic assimilation throughout Russian history, many ethnic groups retain their cultural identities.

Cultural diversity in contemporary Russian society is determined by the historically rooted structure of ethnic and cultural space and recent international and interregional migration. Although there is no relationship in Russia between ethnic heterogeneity and regional economic growth and convergence, there is an association between migration-induced diversity and development. Provincial spending on education is inversely related to ethnic heterogeneity. Differences between these results and the results of comparative studies of rich countries are considered.
