Russian Women in USA ?

So many American men prefer to go to Russia to meet russian women, while why go to Russia when some already here? lots of russian women in USA are very beautiful, educated and intelligent. So why to go through all the hassle of going over there to meet them? A lot of russian women are already in USA on work visas or student visas. Are these russian women too Americanized and men ready to spend thousands of dollars to travel to Russia to find a "real thing" ?
