|Abstract||Value differences of various ethnic groups present a challenge for today’s multinational city. Arriving in a new cultural environment the individual has to adjust – to change his previous views and values. In the case of a general cultural code, this process occurs quite rapidly and without difficulties. But if cultural differences are essential, then the process of adaptation requires a longer period, and the migrant can face considerable difficulties. The study aims to examine value orientations before and after resettlement. We believe that values are not yet the established imperatives and capable of undergoing dynamic alterations. And due to a changing social situation, they can transform in response to personal purposes and motives. In the study, we used the S. Schwartz Value Scale. The data were collected two times: before and after migration with a period of 14 months. The results revealed both significant differences in the respondents’ value orientations after their immersing in an alien culture and the dynamics of value orientations of the Russianspeaking migrants living abroad. While migrating, a behavioral level of value orientations transforms more than a normative does. Value profile of personality changes together with tasks the individual faces; values accomplish an instrumental function of satisfying needs and motives.|
