The median age in Russia is 40, so half of Russians are over 40. St Petersburg's metro population is over 5 million, so we would expect roughly 2.5 million of St Petersburg's residents to be over 40. From 1922 to 1990 there was no country of Russia, so almost all of those 2.5 million were born in another country (the exception being those over 95). I don't see how St Petersburg doesn't make the list.

I would think that people born in the old Russian Soviet Federative Socialist Republic would not be considered foreign born in present day Russia. Sorry if my comment above was misleading.
