Men often like the idea of finding Russian brides. Although you certainly can find Russian brides online, the whole "Russian brides" phrase is often taken as an umbrella term for women from a whole range of countries in Eastern Europe and beyond. Most of the Russian brides you see on dating sites are from former Soviet countries. Many of these women are from Ukraine, Belarus and Moldova. All three have fairly poor economies that haven't exactly prospered in the post-Soviet era. Hence there's a good reason why so many women from these countries see the attraction of becoming a mail order bride and seeking a new life in the USA or elsewhere.
One former Soviet country where you may also see ladies from on Russian dating sites is Kazakhstan. Kazakhstan is geographically the world's 9th largest country, yet most people know very little about it (the notorious Borat movie doesn't count!).
How common are Kazakhstan ladies on Russian dating sites? At the time of writing there were almost 200 Kazakhstan women on Elena's Models, and 300 on Rose Brides. In contrast to the numbers of ladies from Ukraine or Russia this isn't a huge number, but it should be perfectly possible to find ladies you're interested in amongst this number. Most of the ladies are from the major cities such as Almaty and Astana.
Although Kazakhstan ladies are often Russian looking in appearance, Kazakhstan's close proximity to Asia (and China in particular) mean that there are plenty of exotic looking ladies in this country. If you want to find the more Asian looking Kazakhstan girls then it may be better to use an Asian dating site such as Chinese Love Links. At the time of writing there were however only 7 Kazakhstan ladies listed on Chinese Love Links. It's sad there aren't more, because the girls who look Asian but speak Russian are wondrous!
Alternatives to Kazakhstan Ladies
If you want to find a lady from a less well known part of the former Soviet Union then you have plenty of options. There's Turkmenistan, Uzbekistan, Azerbaijan and Armenia to name just four. It's usually quite easy to find ladies from these countries on Russian dating sites. However, before you start falling in love with the exotically beautiful girls from these countries, just bear in mind that there could be significant issues in dating ladies from Kazakhstan or other distant former Soviet countries.
