grandfather went to work in Soviet Russia (USSR)

I have only family hearsay to work from, but I believe he went to work out there during the great depression, and would have been during the late 1920's, into the mid 1930's.

I just wonder how he would have got there? I assume via a ship from the UK, onto maybe Hamburg, Riga, or some other north European port?

I cannot find him on any passenger list, I wonder if there were any organised trips out there?

Any thoughts or ideas welcome..
