According to reports in the last 20 years in Russia, 2,000,000 ethnic Muslims people have left Islam since the fall of the Soviet Union in 1990s. In the same period it is believe only 2,000 to 5,000 ethnic Russians converted to Islam.

While various Muslim sources claim that Islam is the fastest growing religion in Russia and that ethnic Russians are converting to Islam in large numbers, Roman Silantyev, the executive secretary of the Interreligious Council of Russia denounces this as a myth.

Silantyev states that in recent years more than two million people from various ethnic Muslim backgrounds including... Tatar, Azeri, Ingush, Kazakh, etc. have converted from Islam to Orthodox Christianity in Russia.

Interesting. Russia is tip-toeing toward a more nationalistic cultural posture. The Orthodox Church fits in with that but Islam most definitely does not.

just goes to show why Islamic countries do not allow evangelism.
