Your relatives are in Israel 10 years already!
They should understand Hebrew. If these people are middle aged, 40-50s,
even they should understand at least basic Hebrew.
But it depends how serious they were/are to learn the new language.
Assuming that they work, they should be ok with Hebrew. If there are young
ones in the family ,then there are no problems.
Another problem: there are countess numbers of Russian language newspapers,
magazines, that only causing damage to a successful integration of Russian
Jews into Israeli society. So it can be a negative factor in their desire
to learn and improve their Hebrew.
