Disputes between labor migrants regularly occur in different regions of Russia. Visitors, despite the threat of deportation and entry ban, take to the streets, participate in mass fights and destroy city property. What causes interethnic conflicts.
On air Public News Service Chairman of the Supervisory Board of the Institute of Demography, Migration and Regional Development Yuri Krupnovtold what Russia’s problems are with migrants, and how to stop interethnic conflicts.
“Behind this are fundamental problems that have been tearing our country apart for many years. The largest concentration of migrants is in Moscow, the Khanty-Mansiysk Autonomous Okrug, and the Krasnodar Territory; it follows that the country has shrunk to a few rich regions, where everything is concentrated, including migrants. As a result, our country has lost the minimum uniformity of development, which is why Moscow has the opportunity to develop at the expense of the regions. Secondly, the problem is that Russia is constantly being egged on by the former Soviet republics, so a project for a great new Russia is needed. The third problem is the emergence and sustainable development of ethno-national diasporas, which are closely connected with the countries of origin; in fact, ethno-national diasporas are a state within a state.”
According to a study by the Gaidar Institute, the number of registered migrant arrivals in Russia in the first half of 2023 fell to 282 thousand people compared to 333 thousand for the same period in 2022.
